Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Carston Farm is a dairy farm extending to 65.60 Ha (162.10 Ac). The farm has a traditional painted stone-built farmhouse with private lawned gardens and an agriculturally tied cottage. The holding benefits from a range of modern and traditional farm buildings which sit to the east and west of the farmhouse and are suitable for dairying, livestock housing and storage. The land is split into three blocks bisected by the B7046 and mineral railway. It is mostly ploughable and provides excellent silage ground and grazings. The current farming system is centred on milking 100 Holstein Friesian Cross cows with 80 young stock. All of the land has benefitted from regular fertiliser applications, manure and slurry.

Carston Farm is offered for sale as a whole or in three lots.
Consideration will be given to a lock, stock and barrel sale.


The Farmhouse
Carston Farmhouse is a traditional stone built four bedroom dwelling under a slate roof adjoining a range of traditional outbuildings. The accommodation is set over one and a half storeys. The property benefits from large enclosed lawned gardens and views over the surrounding countryside. The farmhouse is in need of modernisation internally.

The Cottage
Ashbank cottage is a detached dwelling of modern construction built in late 2003 with a timber frame and block cavity walls under a pitched tiled roof. Spacious accommodation is offered over on a single floor. The property is in good decorative order throughout having been recently renovated and benefits from its own position west of the main farm steading, its own entrance direct from the public road and lawned gardens. The cottage has an agricultural occupation restriction and is also tied to the holding. Further details are available from the selling agent.
