Old Place Farm is a former working farm set in a very attractive rural location between Glasgow and Stirling. The farm has been occupied by the current owners for about 35 years and it is understood that it was previously run as a pig rearing farm and more recently as a livery enterprise.

A key feature of the property is the fantastic view.
Old Place Farmhouse
Occupying an elevated position with attractive views, the farmhouse is situated to the south of the outbuildings. It is of timber frame, block and brick construction with a harled exterior and under a pitched tile roof.
The house was constructed by the seller in 1977 and with a south facing position, it provides well-proportioned, bright and flexible accommodation over one level.
The house is entered via a vestibule with a cloakroom off, and leads to a reception hall. The sitting room is well placed for the views of the surrounding countryside. There are three bedrooms in total; the master has an en suite shower room and two of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes. A kitchen, dining room, utility room and family bathroom completes the accommodation. A pantry off the kitchen and a linen cupboard in the hall provide useful storage space.

The property is situated in a very accessible location off a minor public road, which leads to the A803 and connects to the M8 for Glasgow to the south and the M80 for Stirling to the north.
