A well-renowned tillage farm the holding is suitable for any purpose and could be converted for dairy use with the addition of basic milking infrastructure.

The yard is made up of a set of useful buildings that includes a five-column hay barn with a lean-to, and a stable yard with four stables all set on an extensive hard-core area.

Laid out in about seven divisions the place is well fenced with excellent road frontage and good boundary fencing. A top-class internal roadway system runs through the property servicing all divisions, this feature should make the holding particularly attractive for dairy buyers.

According to Andrew Nolan the land has the quality to deliver a broad range of crops and over the years has produced excellent yields.

The majority of the land extending to 160ac is in tillage of which 93ac is in winter barley, 76ac in winter wheat while the remainder is made up of grassland and internal roadway.

The ground is currently in stubble having harvested a mixture of winter and spring barley earlier this year.
