‘The existing planning permissions are a very useful starting point for an individual or partnership with the foresight to create an exciting new residential or commercial development.

‘The sale as a whole or in lots offers the flexibility for a variety of uses of the land and buildings. Much of the land is pasture, graded 3.2 by the James Hutton Institute, with some amenity woodland. In addition, there is a productive area of pasture and arable land which could have sporting potential.

‘There are a number of farm buildings adjacent to the farmhouse laid out around a central courtyard, which may be converted, either for residential use as the current planning consent allows, or for a variety of business or equestrian uses, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. The original Victorian farmhouse retains many original features and could be modernized to create a lovely home in an accessible location.’

Lochwood Farm comprises a compact farming and amenity unit situated in a rural location close to Gartcosh.

The property benefits from a traditional farmhouse, a range of traditional buildings which are located centrally within the holding, and an area of agricultural land extending to about 42.21 ha (104.30 acres) in total.

The farmland is located in two blocks with the majority of the farmland situated to the north of the property with a further enclosure to the far west of the holding, separated by the M73.

The farm is equipped with a range of traditional steading buildings which currently benefit from detailed planning consent for conversion to six residential units, ranging from two to four-bedroom homes, forming a traditional courtyard setting. More details of the planning consent can be found on Glasgow City Council’s web site.
