‘All the elements for a wonderful rural lifestyle’: 84ac farm for sale in Scotland
Currently on the market is Langlee Park, a superb small farm just outside Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders. The property includes an impressive family home, substantial outbuildings, parkland, grazing and woodland extending in all to about 83.65ac.
Langlee Park was formerly part of the Langlee Estate and enjoys a scenic location which has good privacy whilst being very accessible to both Jedburgh and the A68, half a mile away.
For the history buff, Jedburgh hosts the annual Jethart Callants Festival where the elected Jethart Callant leads ride-outs on horseback around the town’s historic marches during the months of June and July culminating in a festival day.
Principally pastures and woodland
The land extends to about 81.2ac principally comprising pastures and woodland, with about 61.8ac of grazing and parkland and about 19.4ac of woodland. The land is classified as Grade 3.1 by the James Hutton Institute.
There is an area of Christmas trees harvested every year. The land also includes an orchard; poly tunnels; a hen run; wild flower meadows; and an attractive wildlife pond. In addition, a new wood of 6.5ac was planted in 2019 including a wide range of tree species.
Moreover, all standing and fallen timber is included in the sale; the vendor has a felling licence for two areas of woodland.
The majority of the land is in Region 1 for claiming basic payments and qualifies for Less Favoured Areas Support Loan Scheme (LFASS) payments; however, the land is not situated within a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone (NVZ).
Overall, the property forms a delightful livestock farm. It is also well suited for those who enjoy horses and wildlife.
In addition to the land is Langlee Park house, which was substantially modernised and extended in the 1980s, and now forms a comfortable home with many attractive features and good space for entertaining.
The internal accommodation includes: a sitting room; a conservatory with lovely views over the garden; a dining room; a kitchen; a painting room; an office/playroom; and five bedrooms.
The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room. The rear wing could be converted to form a self-contained annexe with its own entrance if desired.
‘Livestock farm or equestrian property’
Langlee Park is for sale with a guide price of £750,000. Sporting rights and mineral rights are included in the sale – insofar as they are owned.
Alex Inglis of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, commented on the park, saying: “This is a rare opportunity to buy a beautiful property which forms a wonderful livestock farm or equestrian property.
