General Remarks & Stipulations

Harleyrigg is situated in the Nith Valley about 5 miles north of Dumfries in a quiet yet accessible location. The position of the property is shown arrowed on the attached Location Plans.

To reach Harleyrigg take the A701 Edinburgh Road off the A75 Dumfries Bypass and head to Locharbriggs. When you reach Locharbriggs turn left on to Quarry Road and pass Kilblane Quarry. After about one mile continue straight on at the cemetery and after a further three quarters of a mile the entrance to Harleyrigg is on the left hand side of the road.

A residential and stockrearing farm of about 28.90 acres (11.71 hectares) with a nicely situated two bedroomed single storied house, an adjoining stone and slate building with potential for conversion to residential use, a large range of both modern and traditional buildings and about 27.64 acres (11.20 hectares) of grassland. The extent of the property is shown edged in red and coloured in pink on the attached Sale Plan.

The farm steading is attractively situated at the end of a short length of hard track leading from a minor public road and the house enjoys open views across the adjoining countryside to the hills beyond. The house has the benefit of oil fired central heating, uPVC double glazing to most windows and a wood burning stove in the living room and there is scope to extend the accommodation into the adjoining stone and slate storage building, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent.

The remaining farm buildings provide excellent machinery and crop storage and livestock accommodation for a farm of this size and the property would be an excellent base for a small agricultural enterprise or alternatively could be used for equestrian purposes.

There are schools and a wide range of shops and other services and amenities in Dumfries. There is also a railway station at Dumfries and there are good road links with the A74(M) Motorway lying about 12 miles to the east.

The area is well known for its field sports and shooting and good fishing are both available locally.
