Dumfries is well described by its soubriquet of 'Queen of the South', it is the largest town in Dumfries and Galloway, Home to Robert Burns, the town is beaming with history and culture.

The town has a variety of national and independent retailers, cafés, pubs, hotels, restaurant's, butchers and bakers as well as a golf course and a number of primary and secondary schools and a university campus. Dumfries and Galloway is one of the genuinely rural areas of Scotland and, therefore, provides a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare offering a lifestyle property for country pursuit whilst still being well connected to major cities via the UK motorway network and easy access to the West Coast Mainline at Dumfries and Carlisle.

The main house is on an elevated site with panoramic views over picturesque Dumfriesshire, arranged over two floors, there is a good balance of reception rooms and bedrooms including a well equipped business office with dedicated computer points and sockets with cat5 cables to accommodate several devices using the existing 4G network, a great space for working from home. The modern kitchen benefits from integrated appliances and an oil-fired AGA. The former creamery was converted and extended in 2017 to form part of the property offering additional family living or potential to be utilised as an annex. The extensive south facing garden is well maintained and landscaped, with raised vegetable beds, cherry trees and a greenhouse. The property extends to the river and benefits from the fishing rights along the Cargen Pow. The byre and store were also converted into Alongby Cottage in 2006, the cottage is a three-bedroom self-catering holiday home. Adjacent to the house is an extensive range of outbuildings which were rewired in 2017, suitable for a variety of uses.

As a compliment to the stabling there is an outdoor arena (40m x 20m) with a 6 inch subbase and three paddocks extending 5.02 acres which all have water troughs from a well source and field shelters. The land is registered with SGRPID. There is the option to purchase additional land and buildings by separate negotiation.

The property provides great scope in a superb location, making it an excellent opportunity for future development and therefore viewings are highly recommended to fully appreciate both the secluded accessible location and the accommodation on offer.

Services: The property benefits from a self-financing commercial biomass boiler which provides heating and hot water to both properties with RHI payments until 2032. There is capacity to extend the heating system to further developments on the property. There is also an oil fired AGA, private drainage and mains water and electricity.

Planning: There are a large number of various sized outbuildings suitable for a variety of conversion opportunities subsequently offering an excellent holiday let business.
