Tipperty was acquired in the 1950's by the current owners family to complement an established dairy unit. A pioneer of his day, Mr Davidson was a clearly progressive farmer and with significant investment and foresight created accommodation for an intensive mixed farming enterprise which remains the envy of many to this day. Tipperty comprises of two distinct parts, the principal farm unit at Tipperty (Lots 1a &1b) and an outlying block of bare land at Goosecruives (Lot 2).
Tipperty itself is positioned to take advantage of the undulating landscape as the land begins to rise from the Howe of the Mearns. At the centre of the farm and accessed from a tarmacadam private driveway there is a two bedroom house adjacent to a first class range of farm buildings which includes housing for 600 cattle. There are two farm cottages and a development site situated at the farm entrance.
A second dwelling is situated to the north west of the farm. Corsebauld Farmhouse is in need of further refurbishment to create a comfortable family home.
The arable land around the steading is gently undulating and ranges from 130 metres above sea level on the eastern boundary to 220 metres on the top of the Herscha Hill. Beyond is a fine stand of mature timber.
To the south of the Herscha Hill, the fields at Glenfarquhar comprise two large gently sloping arable fields which enjoy a southerly aspect.
About 1.5 miles to the north east lies a separate block of bare arable land extending in total to 151 acres at Goosecruives. Utilised for silage and growing feed barley the land is bounded by public roads and is therefore easily accessible.
Whilst there is currently no formal shoot over Tipperty the topography and aspect of the land provides a good basis for a pheasant shoot as well as exciting roe deer stalking.
Aberdeenshire Council approved planning permission (APP/2013/0386) for two 800kW wind turbines in March 2015. The proposed location of the turbines is on the Herscha Hill as shown on the sale plan. There is an option in place in favour of Muirden Energy. Further details are available from the selling agents.
