Property description


Lot 1 Dyke Farm comprises a productive and versatile small holding extending to 12.68 Ha (31.33 Acres) in total. The property is centred on an attractive traditional farmhouse and an adaptable range of traditional and modern farm buildings. The farmhouse and farm buildings are located to the north of the holding and are accessed directly off the minor public road which leads east from the B803. The farmland is split into 3 separate enclosures lies to the south and east of farmhouse and farmyard. The range of traditional and modern farm buildings would be well suited to a range of equestrian or amenity uses, but also may present further development potential (subject to obtaining necessary planning consents) for other residential or other business uses.

Dyke Farm is situated just ½ a mile to the north of the popular settlement of Slamannan and approximately 5.5 miles south west of the town Falkirk providing an excellent range of shops, retail outlets, and other professional services together with good leisure and recreational facilities.

Dyke Farm is conveniently located within Central Scotland only a short distance from all main arterial routes including the M9 and M8 allowing swift access to Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh, with Edinburgh Airport and the Forth Road Bridge beyond. Rail links are available from nearby Polmont and Falkirk train stations, both with services to Edinburgh and Glasgow, and a regular bus service leads from Avonbridge to surrounding areas as well as Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Nursery and primary schooling is available at Slamannan Primary school which is located just under a mile from the property, with secondary schooling available at Falkirk High School located some 6 miles from the property.

The surrounding area is well catered for by established agricultural contractors and suppliers alongside excellent and ever growing equestrian and agricultural outlets at Stirling Agricultural Centre about 22 miles to the north west of the property.

Dyke Farmhouse is located centrally within the holding and is accessed directly off the minor public road which leads east from the B803 culminating in a large area of tarmac and concrete to the rear of the house providing ample space for parking for a number of vehicles. The farmhouse is of traditional stone construction set under a slate roof and benefits from southerly views over the surrounding countryside towards Slamannan. The house provides spacious and well laid out accommodation over two levels and benefits from a sufficient area of surrounding ground which may provide the opportunity for potential extension of the existing accommodation. The accommodation and room dimensions are set out in more detail in the floor plans contained within these particulars.
