Attractive farm with huge diversification potential for sale on the Isle of Arran

Rural property experts, Bell Ingram is delighted to bring South Bank Farm to the market, a most attractive farm with traditional farmhouse on the Isle of Arran with uninterrupted sea views towards Ailsa Craig and the Ayrshire Coast. 

With approximately 121.55 ha (300.36 acres) it is for sale as a whole or in three lots. Lot 1 comprises the farmhouse, a bothy, steading and about 2.83 ha (7 acres). Lot 2 consists of good quality grazing and permanent pasture at about 28.32 ha (70 acres). Meanwhile Lot 3 comprises grazing and hill land at about 89.8 ha (221.8 acres).

South Bank is a most attractive farm with a stone-built farmhouse, well maintained gardens, a traditional courtyard steading and a mixture of good quality grazing land and hill ground. It is currently run as a productive sheep farm and previously the present owners successfully ran it as farm park with sheep dog trials as an attraction. There is a bothy and former art studio adjoining the outbuildings.

Given its close proximity to the road it is ideally located for passing trade.

The farmhouse enjoys uninterrupted sea views towards Ailsa Craig and the Ayrshire coast. It is well presented with well-proportioned rooms. It has a good-sized dining kitchen with useful utility room, living room with log burning stove, study, bathroom and conservatory overlooking the gardens towards the sea. At upper floor level there are three bedrooms, a boxroom and WC.

The steading lies at the rear of the house and forms a sheltered courtyard. It comprises a bothy which has its own front and rear entrance with kitchen, separate living area and shower room with separate WC. This could have potential to provide possible rental income subject to appropriate consents.

There is a former studio/gallery which leads to large workshop and a variety of sheds for multi-purpose use including garage, log store and tool shed. To the side of the steading is sheep handling pens.

The gardens have been well maintained and are laid out mainly in lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs. The grazing land of about 2.83 ha (7 acres) is situated close to the house and steading. The land is well fenced and drained.

Commenting on the property, Estate Agent, Lauren Howie says: “This is an excellent opportunity of acquire a most attractive farm. The acreage and quality of the land combined with the farmhouse and buildings, provide a number of options for diversification”.
