A VERY WELL MAINTAINED SMALL FARM / LIFESTYLE PROPERTY LOCATED IN AN AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY WITHIN THE STEWARTRY AREA OF DUMFRIES & GALLOWAY

This small farm / lifestyle property offers the successful purchaser to live in an area of outstanding natural beauty and to develop the farm to either accommodate small scale agricultural or indeed a tourist based enterprise. Given the diversity of the vernacular buildings, there may exist the opportunity develop further residential accommodation, subject to the normal planning regulations.

THE FARMHOUSE
Grobdale of Girthon is a traditional 2 storey farmhouse under a slate roof. The property has been completely refurbished and benefits from central heating throughout along with underfloor heating on the ground floor. The property is in excellent decorative order throughout and occupies an elevated site within its own garden grounds with open views over the surrounding hills

OUTSIDE
Traditional farm courtyard with the restored traditional buildings of stone under pitch slate roofs, parking and turning area leading to the house. A slate path and patio leads around the house to an area immediately adjacent to the rear with terraced flower beds leading to an area of lawn with borders of flowering shrubs and perennials, raised bed garden area with herb garden, soft fruits and vegetables gates to fenced-in orchard with large variety of fruit trees and chicken house.

There are two timber garden sheds, one acting as a chicken coop, and the other as a potting shed, with steps returning down to the rear patio and side of the house. Poly Tunnel.

We are of the view that some of these buildings could well have residential development potential given that the conversion of traditional farm buildings to residential dwellings (change of use), is consistent with Dumfries & Galloway Councils present structure and local plans. Prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries in this respect.
