A “rarely available” combination of a derelict farmhouse, mixed outbuildings and land on 8ac outside Falkirk has been brought to the market by DM Hall Chartered Surveyors.

Broadside Farm is being marketed at offers over £250,000 and anyone interested in taking up the “unique opportunity” is urged to contact the head of rural agency, Jennifer Campbell.

The rural branch of DM Hall Chartered Surveyors said Broadside Farm, which is situated to the northeast of Denny and south of River Carron, has “beautiful views of the countryside within the Carron Valley”.

This area, it said, is ideal for outdoor pursuits with hacking routes as it has countryside walks and cycling routes nearby.

Head of rural agency at DM Hall Chartered Surveyors Jennifer Campbell, said: “This property has huge potential and is a fantastic redevelopment project in the heart of central Scotland, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

“It has glorious panoramic views as well as 7.9ac of predominantly south facing grazing land.

“There has always been demand for rural redevelopment projects and this is a fantastic accessible location with a manageable parcel of land, shown on the Hutton Institute land capability for agriculture plans (partial cover) as being of Class 4.2 in quality. The grazing paddocks extend to approximately 2.6 Ha (6.4 Acres) in all.”

Campbell said the site was a “much-loved” family farm for many years and that it would be fantastic for its potential to be realised.

“There is already significant interest in the property and a closing date is likely to be set, viewings should be arranged by appointment,” she said.
