Upper Lenshaw Farm is situated approximately 6 miles to the north west of Rothienorman all within a ring fence. One of the many attractions of this farm is its quietness and privacy, together with far reaching views to the south towards Bennachie.

Upper Lenshaw Farm offers a great opportunity; with good quality farmland which has been farmed organically for 23 years, traditional and modern buildings and a charming farmhouse.

Situated conveniently close to the farm steading, the farmhouse is constructed of harled stone under a slate roof and is double glazed throughout. The house sits in an elevated position and has commanding open countryside views. The accommodation is arranged over two floors.

Of particular note is the spacious farmhouse kitchen, the heart of the home, with double aspect windows, a slate floor, a solid oak kitchen and a 4 oven Aga as the focal point. There is a private patio area directly outside the kitchen. The floors and internal doors are pitch pine throughout the farmhouse. From the main hallway is the formal lounge with LPG open coal effect gas fire. Adjacent is the modern family bathroom and the sitting room.

The main stairway leads to 3 double bedrooms and a dressing room. A rear hallway at the back of the farmhouse is home to the study, the utility/pantry, the kitchen and sun room. There is also a rear staircase which leads to a further two bedrooms.

The whole house is heated by an oil-fired boiler with radiators in most rooms.

The property was formerly part of the Lenshie Estate, a gift to disabled servicemen from World Wars 1 and 2. The farm is in a very private location which has been further enhanced by the recent establishment of Clarke Wood.

Turriff, situated 7 miles away, is a small town with quite a range of shops including Tesco and Cooperative supermarkets. Rothienorman, just 5 miles away, has a limited number of small shops, a pub and a restaurant. Secondary schooling is in Turriff, Meldrum, Inverurie and Huntly.

More comprehensive facilities are available in Aberdeen, the ‘Oil Capital of Europe’, which provides all the recreational, entertainment, educational and cultural facilities one would expect of a large city. Aberdeen has an international airport with an ever increasing range of domestic and European flights and regular inter-city services.

The mature garden surrounding the farmhouse has been carefully and thoroughly planned; it features lawns and several individual beds containing a variety of herbaceous plants attracting a variety of birds and wildlife. There is a large selection of trees and mature shrubs. A winding garden path with a flower arch leads to the orchard. The garden is partially fenced. There is also a barbeque area, a shed and a single garage adjacent to the house.

Four paddocks which extend to about 22 acres are included. Most are edged with established hedges of hawthorn, blackthorn, holly and dog rose.

There is a U-shaped range of traditional stone buildings, mostly under slate roofs.
