CKD Galbraith offers a taste of the country close to the city
Leading independent Scottish property consultancy CKD Galbraith is offering for sale Langlee Farm, Newton Mearns, a traditional stone built farmhouse thought to date from around 1850.
The property was originally a working dairy farm and, like many in the area, would have supplied the city of Glasgow with fresh milk, butter and buttermilk.
As the roads in the area improved, so did the trade, and it was said that there was a “daily morning exit of assorted wheeled vehicles which could be seen leaving the Parish carrying their sought after fresh products to eager customers in the city”.
Like many of the farms in the area, the property is built around three sides of a square and close to the Earn Water - which would have been used to power the churns originally. The remains of an old mill lie within the gardens.
Internally the property is spacious and bright with well-proportioned rooms and the useful addition of a large one-bedroom adjoining annexe.
The house retains much of its original character and is simply laid out for practical living.
The farmhouse kitchen has a range of modern units with an electric stove and is open plan to an informal breakfasting area. A door leads through to the dining room.
The sitting room is a cosy room with an open fire and exposed ceiling beams and there is a more informal sitting area in the sun porch.
Four bedrooms and a bathroom are located on the first floor. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom.
Langlee Farm has a range of adjoining stone outbuildings including the old dairy, garaging and a barn and there are also separate outbuildings including a substantial byre and a large shed.
The gardens are well tended and awash with seasonal colour. There is a productive orchard with apple, cherry and pear trees and an area of sheltered woodland. A paddock of approximately 4 acres provides grazing.
Offers Over £785,000 are being sought.
