Burnside is located just on the periphery of the pretty village of Shawhead in Dumfries and Galloway. This is an area noted for not only its agricultural production, but for a thriving tourist industry.

Burnside oozes with charm and character having been sympathetically modernised over the years, complimented by the attention to detail which has been paid to the interior design of the property. The dwelling is situated in a rural but accessible location and has mature, carefully landscaped garden grounds to include an area of amenity woodland, grazing land, bespoke built stable block, etc. The whole property is set within 5.5 acres.  The current owners have maintained the property to a very high standard over the years with Burnside truly in exceptional walk-in condition.

BURNSIDE FARMHOUSE
A traditional stone-built Galloway farmhouse set under a slated roof. As mentioned earlier, the property has been sympathetically modernised to a very high standard benefitting from exceptional interior design. Burnside Farmhouse enjoys an open outlook over the surrounding countryside.

STABLES & GARAGE
An exceptional building which is split into three large stables (4.3m x 3.7m) with a tack room off. These benefit from hardwood doors, water and electricity laid in.
A large garage is attached to the stable block, which again have hardwood doors with a personnel door off. The garage is extremely spacious (6.38m x 12.2m), with an area set aside as a workshop and a mezzanine level providing further spacious storage. In addition, the garage houses a cloakroom with a WC & WHB. This building has been constructed to an exceptionally high standard with a slate roof, three large velux windows and a window to the rear providing a bright and airy workspace.

THE LAND & GARDEN GROUNDS
Burnside is surrounded by its own mature garden grounds, which are laid to lawns, mature shrubs and specimen trees along with an area of amenity woodland. Located within the amenity woodland exists a small box profile agricultural shed, which is utilised for storage of machinery, etc. A pretty stream runs along one boundary of the property.

To the rear and side of the property is a detached building, which is fully insulated with electricity & water laid in and two velux roof lights. This building is currently utilised for housing portable kennels (not included within the sale), however has huge potential for a number of uses. To the side of Burnside, a former single brick-built garage is utilised for general storage.

The grazing land at Burnside surrounds the dwellinghouse and is broken into manageable paddocks by post and rail fencing as well as featuring a double wooden field shelter. Additionally, there are two paddocks plus a small orchard just across the minor road. The larger paddock has a double brick-built field shelter. All paddocks are serviced by water troughs. This land has potential for a variety of uses from equestrian to small scale agricultural production.

All services are located within a short drive of the property, with the busy market town of Dumfries boasting all essential and professional services, along with three retail parks, an ice rink, a modern sports centre and a University Campus. Dumfries offers a wide choice of both primary and secondary schooling with the Crichton University Campus offering a wide variety of further education choices. There is also a primary school at the nearby village of Shawhead, with the newly constructed Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary only a 10-minute drive from the property.
