Blackwater Cottage is located in a stunning rural setting, yet within an easily accessible area of Dumfries & Galloway. Situated just 5 miles north of St John’s town of Dalry and about 20 miles from Castle Douglas in the Stewartry area of Dumfries & Galloway, Blackwater Cottage has enormous charm and huge potential to develop into a beautiful lifestyle property for either small scale agricultural or equestrian purposes.
This detached 200-year-old stone cottage, with lovely views from every window, sits in a superb elevated position amongst the hills, valleys and lochs of Galloway. In recent years Blackwater Cottage has been utilised as successful holiday accommodation, which has been neutrally decorated throughout providing comfortable accommodation. The cosy sitting room has a wood-burning stove to augment the efficient electric heating.
The large well-maintained garden has a hardstanding area, which provides plenty of off-road parking with an area set aside for outdoor entertaining. From the northern boundary of the property there is a core path (The Southern Upland Way), signed Butterhole Bridge, which guides you by a picturesque fast flowing river with waterfalls and pools.
This charming dwelling benefits about 3.015 acres of grazing land, which surround the property and benefits from direct gated access from the garden grounds. The land does require some attention, however with a good land management program, has huge potential for a number of uses. The property is ideally situated for those seeking a rural lifestyle, yet within reasonable reach of major commuting links. Blackwater Cottage has huge potential to increase the footprint, however, any interested party wishing to look into this further would need to make their own enquiries with Dumfries & Galloway Council’s Planning Department www.dumgal.gov.uk/planning
Blackwater Cottage is surrounded by its own enclosed garden grounds, part bound by dry stone dykes and timber post fencing. The gardens are mainly laid to lawns, mature shrubs and specimen trees. To the front of the cottage there is ample off-road parking and a dedicated area set aside for outdoor dining or entertaining.
The land is made up of one field enclosures, in all about 3.015 acres. At present the land has been left to revert to nature, but could be suitable for any smallscale equestrian or agricultural uses. The land benefits from direct gated access from the garden grounds of the cottage.
