Little Knox is situated on an elevated site with open views over the surrounding farmland. The property is within close proximity to the pretty market town of Castle Douglas.

Little Knox has been immensely improved within the current ownership having been completely sympathetically refurbished and now provides a beautifully presented family home. The improvements undertaken within the property include: new double glazing throughout the majority of the property, new bathroom with digitally controlled underfloor heating and beautifully presented newly fitted kitchen with black limestone flooring.  The kitchen / dining area is spacious and provides ample room for family and social entertaining. The property has been re-plumbed, partially re-wired and been fully insulated from the floors to the walls and the smoke and carbon dioxide detectors have been installed to meet the new regulations to be introduced in February 2022.

The whole modernisation is complimented with brushed chrome light switches and beautiful décor throughout. It should be noted that the fixed chandeliers are available to purchase by separate negotiation, otherwise, these will be replaced by a simple pendant fitting.

A feature of Little Knox is the grazing paddock which amounts to just under 3 acres, which at present is the home for the family horse. The paddock leads to a lovely wildlife pond which attracts a variety of wildlife. The whole property presents a beautiful family home with huge potential for smallscale agricultural or equestrian purposes.

The former traditional steading buildings, currently utilised for outside dining and entertaining, have benefitted from change of use in the past to form a dwellinghouse. Any interested party wishing to pursue this should make their own enquiries with Dumfries & Galloway Council’s planning department.

HOME REPORT
It should be noted that the property is an agricultural holding, which benefits from an agricultural holding number: 82/498/0074 therefore there is no requirement for the sellers to provide a Home Report, as it is classed as mixed use.
