Raggithill Farm sits in an elevated position above the North-Western edge of Mossblown, in rural surroundings with sublime views West, to the Forth of Clyde and Arran, and South across the county. Mossblown is a short distance from Ayr and has ease of access to Kilmarnock and Glasgow via the A77 & M77.
Mossblown has a medical practise, pharmacy, grocery store, take-aways, post office, activity centre, hairdresser and a popular Public House with a restaurant. Two bus routes serve the village, connecting Mossblown with Ayr to the south, Annbank to the east and Tarbolton and New Cumnock to the North. Times vary accordingly but generally two buses per hour allow villagers to commute to Ayr, with its proximity of five miles (eight kilometres) giving villagers access to high street retailers. Prestwick, some 5 miles to the east has a comprehensive range of amenities, including schools, restaurants and bars, transport links to Glasgow and beyond, shops, supermarkets and leisure facilities. Mossblown has a primary school and thriving private day nursery. The school has in recent years been extended to include the village library and sports facilities for the school. Annbank and Mossblown are in the catchment area for Ayr Academy.
DescriptionThe outbuildings sit in a courtyard formation to the rear of the dwelling house. The main outbuilding is detached, concrete foundations, brick and steel construction under a metal roof. The building is used as part of the commercial Kennel business and has services on site. In addition there is a further kennel block with a concrete floor and timber and brick construction, a further outbuilding of the same construction, sits adjacent and has been used in the past for workshops, gym and storage facilities with an adjoining garage. To the rear of the courtyard there is a significant commercial greenhouse which has not been in operation for some years and now requires repair. The dimensions of the outbuildings are as follows:
Garage 9.80m x 6.58m
Gym/Store 9.78m x 7.06m
Principle Kennels 22.60m x 14.99m
Additional Kennel 13.90m x 5.89m
The Field to the West of the property has been used for grazing or dog walking historically. The land is in good order with secure perimeter boundary fencing throughout. Vehicular access is only via Raggithill Farm . The James Hutton Institute classify the land as 3.2 , general soil type of mineral gleys. The land predominantly slopes to the north and undulates to the south.
The site is not within the Green Belt, so a proposal may be considered under the South Ayrshire Local Development Plan ‘Rural Housing in the Countryside Areas Policy. Furthermore, permitted development rights may allow for the conversion of the agricultural outbuildings. Applicants are encourage to make their
enquiries with the local planning office at South Ayrshire Council in the first instance, a charge may apply. In addition our Planning Director Paul Houghton can be contacted with a view to assistance with a planning application or consultation, a charge may apply. Paul.email@example.com
A clawback agreement is proposed in that the vendor will be entitled to an uplift in value at 30% in the event of planning permission being granted for residential or commercial development for any purpose other than agricultural, over any part of the remainder of the property being obtained subsequent to the date of entry for a period of 25 years.
