Leading Scottish property consultancy, CKD Galbraith, presents a unique opportunity to purchase a productive arable farm, together with a traditional farmhouse and outstanding modern storage and livestock buildings, situated in the heart of the Borders.
Midburn Farm is located in Lauderdale, Berwickshire, renowned for the quality of its arable and stock farms, only 25 miles south of Edinburgh, enjoying unspoilt countryside and offering a wealth of outdoor pursuits. Midburn farmhouse offers comfortable accommodation over two floors with four large bedrooms, a large family kitchen and a spacious conservatory overlooking the mature gardens.
Extending to some 160 acres in total, the land is classified as being mainly Grade 3 and 4 and is split into two parcels by a minor public road, each within a ring fence.
The land is well suited to cereal production and has been let in the past for other winter harvested vegetables.
The majority of the steading is currently let to a number of third parties for a variety of purposes and providing an additional income stream.
The modern farm buildings include nine store sheds of various sizes, three large cattle sheds, a purpose-built grain store and public weighbridge.
Duncan Barrie, who is handling the sale for CKD Galbraith, said: “Midburn Farm is a fantastic compact arable unit, situated in a stunning, but very accessible location.
“It represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a productive arable farm and an attractive farmhouse, with the added bonus of additional and considerable income streams available from the modern farm steading.
A farm of this quality rarely comes available on the open market and we expect a lot of interest given its favourable location within rural Berwickshire.
“As a firm, we have been experiencing an active farm sales market throughout 2014, with a number of sales across the country being completed as well as bringing a large number of properties to the market across the whole of Scotland.”
