Scottish offering looks sweet
Scotland, 361ac + 3 houses + planning permission. Asking price: €2.71m
The possibility of generating several different income streams from one property makes Whitecross Farm, Coldingham, Berwickshire, Scotland, an interesting prospect for any farmer.
The prime arable farm consists of 361ac, which is divided into 301ac of tillage ground and 30ac of permanent pasture, alongside some mixed woodland and rough grazing.
A Vodafone telecommunications mast generates an annual income of €3,155 and the farm, which has three residential properties on site, comes to the market with granted planning permission for five new residences.
Forming the south-east corner of Scotland, the Berwickshire coast is an area of great natural beauty, with sandstone cliffs reaching nearly 500ft high in places, and many small coves and natural harbours peppering the shoreline.
The farm, 50 miles from Edinburgh and 14 miles from Berwick-upon-Tweed, has coastal views and undulating land. More importantly for prospective farmer buyers, it is laid out in a single block of land with all the farm buildings at its centre.
With an asking price in excess of £2.365m (€2.71m), the property is being offered for sale in its entirety and as several lots.
Lot one consists of Whitecross Farmhouse, a substantial traditional home on 1.6ac. The 3,778ft2 two-storey property consists of six bedrooms, two reception rooms and a large kitchen. Adjoining the eastern side of the house is a range of modern and traditional outbuildings.
