Traditional farmhouse with fabulous interlinking barn conversion with views down to the river Clyde


Symington 1.5 miles, Biggar 5 miles, Edinburgh 34 miles, Glasgow 38 miles

Broadfield Farm House has a wonderful rural setting with stunning views over the Clyde. The property sits at the foot of Tinto Hill which is the largest and most prominent landmark in the upper reaches of the Clyde Valley. The summit is over 700 metres high and on a clear day there are views from the summit to both the east and west coasts of Scotland, across the English border and north to the Trossachs.

The property benefits from excellent accessibility to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the M74. Junction 13 of the M74 at Abington is only 7.5 miles away. There is a railway station nearby at Carstairs Junction on the main west coast line which has the bonus of the Caledonian Sleeper service, and offers a connection to Edinburgh. Lanark (10 miles) provides a commuter rail link to Glasgow.

The local village of Symington has a post office and general store as well as Tinto Primary School which provides nursery and primary schooling. The larger town of Biggar has a secondary school and a broader range of shops and services including a number of bars and restaurants, independent retailers, supermarkets and veterinary and medical services.


Set above the river Clyde, Broadfield Farm House is a traditional stone built property under a slate roof with a rear courtyard bounded by outbuildings.

The accommodation has been extended into the adjacent barn which has created a contemporary space which beautifully complements the traditional style of the house.

The ground floor accommodation has a farmhouse kitchen with fitted units and a cream two door Aga set around a central dining area. There is also an electric cooker, fridge freezer and dishwasher, and a good pantry cupboard. Beyond the kitchen is a utility room and boiler room where there is a side entrance to the garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is an anteroom, currently used as a library and with a door linking to the back entrance leading to the courtyard.

The central hall links front to back and has stairs leading to the first floor. On the opposite side of the hall to the kitchen is a day room overlooking the garden. This has a connecting doorway to the dining room which leads through to the sitting room located in the extension. The sitting room is a fabulously spacious room with excellent natural light from the roof lights and Velfac sliding doors which open into the garden. There is a wood burner which supplements the electric underfloor heating. Off the hall to the study there is a large box room currently used as a store. There is scope to convert this into an alternative space, potentially a bathroom. The study is in a peaceful spot at the far end of the extension.

The first floor accommodates three spacious double bedrooms, a dressing room, linen cupboard and large family bathroom with free standing bath and separate shower. The master bedroom with en suite overlooks the garden and across to the Clyde.

Gardens and Grounds

The grounds of Broadfield Farm House extend to approximately 2.9 acres. The driveway leads to a large courtyard to the back of the house which has plenty space for car parking. This has been landscaped to incorporate a lawn with cobbles defining the colourful herbaceous borders and patio area. A stand of pleached limes screens the courtyard from the neighbouring farm. The former stables and coach house provide extensive garaging and storage, with conversion potential subject to obtaining planning permission.

The gardens to the front of the house have herbaceous borders and hedges framing the lawn. Beyond the formal garden is a paddock of some 2.3 acres.

Acreage: 2.93 Acres
