Boghall Farm is a traditional farmhouse, converted and extended to form an attractive, spacious and airy family home.
The house and gardens are protected from the north by an extensive range of farm buildings, and from the west and southwest by established trees. All the main rooms bar one have stunning south views. The gardens (1.2acres) surrounding the house, include herbaceous borders, mature trees and shrubs, vegetable patch, a woodland garden and a number of fruit trees set in extensive lawns.
The original farmhouse is thought to date from approximately the 1850s and was extended in the 1980s and 1991, to provide south facing, light and spacious rooms throughout. The accommodation on the ground floor consists of reception hallway leading into a formal dining room with wood burning stove; the drawing room with open fireplace faces south and west with sliding door opening into the garden; study with open fireplace; large fitted kitchen with 2 door racing green Aga, and breakfast area with gas fire; a double door leads into the conservatory. Utility room, laundry room, and WC/cloakroom complete the downstairs accommodation. The first floor consists of a master bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom, four additional double bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is storage space in the attic.
All the agricultural buildings lie to the north of the house and form a sheltered yard. There are two built of traditional stone and three more modern units.
On the west side lies the grain store, which over the years has served as bothy, farm shop and games room. Opposite this is a large building where stock were housed, but which is now a store with potting shed and cold room off the main shed. A small workshop, formerly a stable completes the yard.
Beyond the grain store is a two span red Dutch barn, and on the north side of the yard is a cattle court built in the 1980s which can house up to fifty beasts. To the east is a large blue shed, also 1980, providing storage for bedding in cattle court. Over the years some of these buildings have been let to neighbouring farmers.
Previously and for 20 years the farm was used as a P.Y.O. soft fruit and vegetable enterprise. In recent years 30 acres have been let for grazing on seasonal lets. All fields have a a southern aspect and are protected by good shelter belts.
The whole property will be sold with vacant possession.
