Bar-Ewing is situated about 4 miles from the pretty village of Balmaclellan, which is located in the Stewartry area of Dumfries & Galloway. Bar-Ewing is nestled within a private rural site, surrounded by its own land with open views across the surrounding countryside. Bar-Ewing offers bright, spacious accommodation and given the diversity of the property, could lend itself to extended family living.

In addition, should any interested party be interested in extending the property further, the attic is full-length and fully floored, therefore there may be the opportunity to create further living space. Bar-Ewing is approached from its own private tree lined driveway and is surrounded by mature garden grounds with a further area of agricultural paddocks and amenity woodland in all about 3.597 acres, Bar-Ewing would lend itself to any smallscale agricultural, equestrian purposes or indeed potential for self-sufficient living.

This area of the Stewartry attracts tourism and boasts a wealth of wildlife with the nearby Loch Ken having regular inhabitants such as ducks, swans, red kites, etc. A feature of Loch Ken is the tourist industry, which has developed around the east bank. Loch Ken is one of the few lochs in the country which allows water skiing, jet skiing and other speed related sports, given that there has been no imposition of any speed restriction on the waterway. Adjacent to Loch Ken is the RSPB bird reservation, the “Galloway Kite Trail” and the Galloway Forest Park, which offers visitors many opportunities to walk, climb, cycle, bird watch and to experience the UK’s first dark sky park.
