Mouswald Banks is conveniently located about 6½ miles southeast of the busy market town of Dumfries in Southwest Scotland.

The dwelling occupies an elevated site with far reaching views over the Solway Firth and the Lake District.

Views from the Dwelling House

Mouswald Banks is a registered agricultural smallholding and it benefits from a main location code. The property would lend itself to small scale agricultural or equestrian purposes. Given the type of vernacular buildings, there may be scope to develop some type of tourist based industry, however any interested parties should make their own enquiries in this respect. It is noted that there had been planning consent granted for holiday cottages, however this planning has now lapsed.

GARDEN GROUNDS
Mouswald Banks has south facing elevated garden grounds, which are mainly laid down to lawns with mature shrubs, a raised patio area and a garden room containing a hot tub. The grounds benefit from stunning views and a degree of seclusion form neighbouring properties.

THE OUTBUILDINGS
Mouswald Banks benefits from an extensive range of traditional stone built byres and barns. The steading is configured in a classic courtyard manner with timber gates which electrically operated. The buildings are utilised as stables, storage and for general amenity. These buildings could well have development opportunities given that they are of a vernacular type, which is consistent with the Dumfries & Galloway Council local structure plan. It is noted that there had been planning consent granted for holiday cottages, however this planning has now lapsed

THE LAND
Mouswald Banks extends in total to about 5.93 acres including the areas occupied by the farmhouse, yard, garden grounds, etc. The land at present is down to grass for grazing and is sub-divided into paddocks.
