On launching details, Emily Mason, Chartered Surveyor for H&H Land and Property said: “We are delighted to bring this tremendous Scottish Borders livestock farm to the market. The farm has been very well managed and maintained, and is quite literally ready to walk into. As the adjacent land is only located 2.5 miles away, it can be easily be incorporated as part of a wider farming enterprise.

The land in this area of west Roxburghshire near Newcastleton is renowned for producing high quality livestock, beef cattle, commercial and breeding sheep. I am sure that, for many people, another benefit is the excellent fishing, afforded by the rights to the Liddel Water included in the sales, and of course the secluded woodlands also offer the potential for a small shoot to be established.”

Being sold as one unit, Demainholm and Under Burnmouth Farms is a ring–fenced, productive commercial sheep and beef farming enterprise. The land, situated between 90 and 150 metres above sea level, is a mixture of meadow, pasture and woodland. The land is classified as a mixture of 4 (2) – Land capable of producing a narrow range of crops though primarily grassland and 5 (2) – Land, capable of use as improved grassland.

The three-bedroom farmhouse is located at Demainholm, along with an extensive range of farm buildings. There are modern and traditional buildings at both Demainholm Farm and Under Burnmouth, all are in very good condition and suited for both agricultural storage and livestock housing.

The range of traditional outbuildings are in good condition for both age and use, and include two cubicle sheds, range of stores, cattle court and machinery store. The range of stores offer potential for further development, subject to planning permission. “These stores could be turned into holiday accommodation and given the area, the level of tourists and visitors are high, so therefore, there is opportunity for strong additional income”, Emily adds.

The farmhouse is of traditional stone and slate build and has been previously extended; providing three bedrooms, two pantries and overlooks its own land and beyond.

The Land at Bankhead ranges from 70 to 110 metres above sea level and includes permanent pasture and grazing. This land is classified as 5 (2) – Land, capable of use as improved grassland.
