For sale as a whole or in two lots.
Whitebank Farm is an attractive amenity unit which could be run either in hand or through arrangements with local farmers. The farmhouse and cottage are in very good condition and the current office accommodation could be maintained to provide an income stream, or alternatively converted into residential accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents.
The biomass boiler system not only services the farmhouse, the cottage and the offices but also produces useful additional income.
