Little Trochry Farmhouse is of traditional stone and lime construction under a pitched timber framed slate covered roof. Spread over two floors, the house currently consists of two bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor while the ground floor consists of a box room, kitchen, W.C. and two large reception rooms, both of which feature solid fuel open fireplaces and benefit from wonderful views down the glen. Internal renovation is necessary to restore Little Trochry to a charming home in its current configuration.
Subject to securing the requisite planning permission and the addition of an extension to the rear, Little Trochry has the potential to provide further spacious and flexible accommodation. It provides a rare opportunity to create a family home with significant outdoor space, all in a delightful secluded setting within easy reach of local amenities and transport routes.
The property currently extends to approximately 124m2 over two floors and includes the following:
Ground Floor First Floor
Kitchen (3.0m x 2.6m) Double bedroom 1 (4.8m x 3.8m)
Dining room (4.8m x 4.0m) Double bedroom 2 (4.8m x 3.0m)

Garden and Land
Little Trochry benefits from two garden areas, one surrounding the house to the front, rear and one side, which is predominantly laid to lawn enclosed with a drystone dyke. The other, on the opposite side of the access track, consists of grass and several mature broadleaved trees which provide a varied habitat and some shelter for the diverse wildlife that frequent the area.
In addition, there are approximately three acres of good quality grazing extending to the north of the house, as shown on the sale plan. Additional land may be available by separate negotiation if required. The land currently included is designated as Grade 4.1 on the James Hutton Institutes land classification for agriculture and consists of mineral podzols soils. Grade 4.1 land is capable of producing a narrow range of crops, primarily grass but with short arable breaks of forage crops and cereal. The land is currently in permanent grass and is IACS registered, however it is not intended that entitlements would be transferred as part of the sale.
Little Trochry is equipped with a range of modern and traditional semi redundant farm buildings which could be reconfigured for a variety of uses, and may, subject to securing requisite planning permission, have development potential for housing. These buildings also have the potential to be converted to a range of other uses from storage or stabling to a studio space or workshop.
The agricultural buildings currently comprise:
Abandoned cottage the stone walls and chimneys of a cottage form one corner of the steading, which looks north-west across the glen. The cottage was previously 1.5 storeys in height, but no longer has a roof and is entirely derelict. While potential purchasers will need to take their own advice in respect of the likelihood of achieving planning permission to reinstate a residential dwelling, the derelict cottage is still on the council tax register and it is believed would have a good chance of gaining planning permission for renewed residential use if desired.
Three traditional steading buildings adjoining the abandoned cottage to the south-east and north-east are traditionally built stone and lime buildings with timber framed, slate covered roofs. The building to the north-east is a single storey byre, while the building to the south-east is two storeys with a timber floor which was formerly the hay loft. There is a further, smaller detached stone and slate building to the east of the steading.
Cattle court to the south-east of the steading is a more modern cattle court. This is open on one side with cattle yokes facing into the steading. The walls are blockwork construction under a timber framed corrugated metal sheet roof.
Dutch Barn constructed of a steel frame covered in corrugated metal walls and roof with earth floor.
