Craigs Farmhouse, annex and traditional courtyard steading are situated on the periphery of the south side of Dumfries. The property is nestled off a minor public road, surrounded by large landscaped garden grounds, which provide privacy and seclusion. The immediate area offers excellent walking, hiking and cycling routes with the Maidenbower walk, right on the doorstep. There are many attractions of scenic and historical interest within easy reach yet, within a short drive to all town centre amenities and major road networks both north and south.

Craigs Farmhouse is a traditionally built dwelling which has been sympathetically modernised to a very high standard, incorporating all the features for modern family day living, yet retaining the character and charm of a building this age (circa 1880). Set in almost two acres, including the extensive gardens and a wooded area beyond, this traditional Dumfriesshire property makes an imposing impression. Craigs Farmhouse offers huge potential and value for money for the discerning buyer in the present property market, with a range of flexible living.

 

 

In addition to the main farmhouse, there is a charming attached annex which is currently utilised as a successful holiday let with many retuning visitors each year. The annex is attached to the main farmhouse set within the courtyard and provides comfortable and cosy holiday accommodation. The annex benefits from an average of 42 weeks occupancy with a high percentage of five star reviews. The annex could lend itself to extended family accommodation given that there is an internal door between this and farmhouse.

Wrapping around the farmhouse and annex is the classic traditional courtyard steading. Three of these traditional buildings benefit from full planning permission for conversion into bespoke residential dwellings. The planning details can be found via: www.dumgal.gov.uk/planning using the reference number: 16/1301/LBC. Another of the buildings has already been converted to a bespoke office space with a spiral staircase off leading to a mezzanine level, with full height window looking over the courtyard.
