    East Borland Farmhouse

    East Borland Farmhouse is approached along a private (recently tarmaced) tree-lined drive, leading from the A76, which continues on to provide internal access to much of the farmland. The farmhouse has an easterly aspect over a beautifully maintained garden and the surrounding countryside including the Borland reservoirs. The house is predominantly of sandstone and slate construction with spacious accommodation over two floors as shown on the accompanying floorplans. The front door opens into a small hallway which provides access to the ground floor accommodation, including lounge, living room, family bathroom, kitchen, back hall and utility room. The living room features a multifuel Clearview stove, while the lounge has a mains gas living flame fire. The kitchen has an integrated fridge, extractor fan and dining table, and spaces for a freestanding cooker and dishwasher (included in the sale). The utility room has a sink and drainer, room for appliances (washing machine and tumble dryer) and has an interconnecting door leading to the garage and mainsteading. There are two staircases (one at either end of the farmhouse) providing access to the first floor where there are five bedrooms and a shower room. The farmhouse benefits from principally UPVC double glazing, biomass boiler (domestic only), mains water and gas and septic tank drainage. Externally there is a small garden partly laid to grass with flower beds and a water feature, and a monoblock patio area. To the rear of the property is a large courtyard area providing ample parking, garage and further flower beds.

    The farmland at East Borland is in excellent heart, and of a consistently good quality across the farm. Several tree lined drives provide a pleasing aesthetic impression which may appeal to the lifestyle purchaser and provides excellent access for livestock handling. Extending to 147 acres in total the land sits in two blocks, bisected by the Dumfries to Kilmarnock railway line, connected by an over bridge providing full access internally. There is also good frontage to the public roads to the east and south of the farm. The land is all of grade 41 quality capable of either arable or silage use, presently with one cut of approximately 67 acres taken each year. The land is bounded with a mixture of drystone dykes, post and wire and electric fencing and hedges. All enclosures benefit from mains water troughs or natural water supply. The farm was operated as a dairy until 2003 when the present owners converted to beef cows. In recent times the holding has carried around 70 suckler cows with young stock being reared for stores, however in preparation for retirement this number has reduced. The land is identified on the map with enclosure numbers which are detailed in the following table:
