Traditional detached Galloway farmhouse located a short distance away from the A75, handy for the amenities of both Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright.
New Dairy Farmhouse is a substantial detached family house set back a minor road
a short distance from the A75. The property although in need of some modernisation
offers well-proportioned bright accommodation throughout, along with a stone built
barn and area of ground which have previously had planning permission some time
ago for further development.
The rural location and additional scope of the outbuildings and garden ground will
make this property an attractive proposition for a number of buyers.
Castle Douglas is a thriving Galloway market town, lying approximately 18 miles
south-west of Dumfries and enjoying an enviable range of shops and other facilities
in a town now promoted as a "Food Town". The town also has a wide range of facilities including excellent primary and secondary schools, modern Health Centre, supermarkets and a thriving community run theatre, The Fullarton, nearby.
The Dumfries and Galloway Region is renowned for its beautiful countryside with
rolling pastures broken by stone dykes and amenity woodland with a rugged coastline. Benefiting from the Gulf Stream, the general climate is mild and there are consequently many beautiful gardens nearby including the National Trust Gardens
Accessed along a gravelled driveway from the country road between the A75 and
the hamlet of Glenlochar New Dairy House is well positioned within its own private
garden grounds which wrap around the main farmhouse and steading. Bordered
by mature hedge.
Front garden is mainly laid to lawn with a large concrete area to the front of the
farmhouse ideal as a patio area and bordered stone dyke raised flower beds and
steps leading to a large lawn area beyond interspersed with a variety of mature
shrubs and plants.
To one side is a large gravel turning area and parking giving additional parking for numerous vehicles in front of the large stone barn. There is an EV charging point immediately next to the rear porch doorway.
Immediately adjacent to the Barn is a pretty cottage garden area with a number of
vegetables beds to one side of this delightful cottage garden is an area of paddock
which previously had planning consent in 1993 to build a dwellinghouse which has
since expired. (Prospective purchasers would need to make their own enquiries
with the planning department if this is something they would be interested in going
forward.) 1000 litre oil tank to the rear.
As well as the main farmhouse New Dairy House also benefits from a large stone barn with double wooden doors and cobbled hard standing area with power. It is understood that this barn has previously had planning consent to be developed which has since expired. Most recently used as storage and as a workshop the barn would suit a number of different uses and may be suitable for development subject to the appropriate planning consents. Power and light.
