Offers Over £280,000
This small agricultural / lifestyle property offers the successful purchaser to live in an area of outstanding natural beauty and to develop the smallholding to either accommodate small scale agricultural / equestrian or indeed any other tourist based enterprise.

THE FARM STEADING
To the rear of the farmhouse is a range of traditional and modern former farmbuildings, which briefly comprise:
2 traditional stone built barns
Stone built former byre
General Purpose Shed
We are of the view that some of the traditional stone buildings could well have residential development potential given that the conversion of traditional farm buildings to residential dwellings (change of use), is consistent with Dumfries & Galloway Councils present structure and local plans. Prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries in this respect.
