Full description

Agricultural and sporting estate extending to approximately 1,325 acres. Productive pasture and arable land, mature and young woodland plantations, good range of modern farm buildings, farm cottage, pheasant shoot and duck flighting.

Housebyres extends to about 1,325 acres in total. Combining mixed grade agricultural land with a combination of mature and young woodland plantations, the farm is managed for lamb production, with a significant grant and subsidy income. The farm has outline planning permission to build a farmhouse, there is a 3 bedroom cottage and the farm is served by a range of modern farm buildings. In recent years the farm has supported a good low ground pheasant shoot.
The farm has the capacity to accommodate up to 2,500 ewes. Prior to the current farming system, the farm has operated with up to 200 suckler cows, 1.600 ewes and 200 acres of combinable crops.
The combination of woodland plantations and topography, together with its size and shape, makes Housebyres well suited for a driven pheasant shoot with some excellent drives. The lochans, to the north of Easter Housebyres, and several small ponds, provide the potential for exciting wild duck flighting, with bags of 20-30 ducks each evening.
