Property Description

Full description


Crosston Farmhouse offers very flexible accommodation over two floors with an attached annex which utilises part of the steading. Due to the setup, this property would be ideal for either a growing family with parents who need to be close by or as a business acting as a guest house or bed and breakfast. Both the Farmhouse and Steading are grade C listed buildings.

The Farmhouse has an abundance of features with some dating back to the 17th century including 'Bee Boles' which are listed and were used to keep beehives warm in winter months. Accommodation is very versatile and includes sitting and living room with open fires, beautiful cottage style kitchen with adjacent utility room, cloakroom/wc and family bathroom. The family room or bedroom four is located downstairs completing the farmhouse ground floor accommodation. Three double bedrooms are located on the first floor with built-in fireplaces. The attached annex is self-contained with kitchen, shower room, sitting room and double bedroom. During ownership, the owner has striven to return this fantastic property into a magnificent family home; upgrading electrical systems, installing new oil fired central heating, plumbing including new septic tank and mains water.

The Steading offers huge potential, the large two storey part of the Steading benefits from full planning permission to convert into a three bed Residential Dwelling. Adjoining there are a range of other farm buildings, four stores, cart shed and stable building with Hay loft. Further parts of the Steading could be upgraded for anyone looking to keep horses, run a business from home or even add extra living accommodation (subject to relevant planning permissions).

The garden grounds are very generous and offer laid to lawn garden with attractive flower and shrub borders. Views over the countryside to the rear. To the front provide a good amount of screening and privacy with mature trees offering seclusion. The property and high steading form the Courtyard. Private access road leads up to Crosston Farmhouse and Steading with ample parking.

Situated within easy reach of the town of Forfar (five miles), this detached farmhouse and steadings is set in an idyllic, peaceful, semi rural location and offers secluded privacy whilst still being within commuting distance of the cities of Perth & Dundee. Aberlemno offers a primary school, village hall and church. Regular bus routes take you into Edzell and Dundee.
