Upper Woodburn is a pretty collection of residential properties, consented development site and 33 acres or thereby of semi ancient native woodlands all of which are in a ring fenced block located in a private yet highly convenient location at the foot of the Campsie Fells just to the north of the city of Glasgow.

A bell mouth entry leads via stone gate piers to a part shared tree lined access avenue under planted with rhododendrons and which leads to both Woodburn House and the land and property assets at Upper Woodburn. The driveway spurs to Upper Woodburn where it becomes the exclusive use and access to the properties of Upper Woodburn. The driveway wends its way through semi ancient native woodlands with a pretty feature stream (Wood Burn, from where the property takes its name) and over which there are bridges and access lanes leading to all of the properties and around the woodland grounds.

Upper Woodburn sits at the heart of the estate and lends itself well as a principal private residence in a peaceful woodland situation.

Self Catering Holiday Enterprise
The three secondary properties are well set up, nicely decorated and well furnished. They have been used recently as good income generating self-catering holiday homes. Over recent years, the enterprise achieves an average of 40 weeks occupancy from which an income of £55,000 – £60,000, less the cost of sales, has been generated. Presently, commission is paid to a web-based traffic provider. A move towards the Airbnb business model has the potential to make the enterprise more profitable.

The consented development site offers scope to build a further holiday letting property, thus increasing the enterprise.
