This charming 3 bed detached is set among the beautiful scenery of Thornhill, Dumfries and Galloway. The property boasts a secluded location and stunning views whilst having good travel links to Dumfries, Ayr and Kilmarnock via the A75.

The location of the property presents many opportunities for country sports in the area including shooting and stalking, as well as salmon fishing on the Nith and Annan. Some of Scotland’s most famous gardens are nearby and the coastline offers opportunities for sailing and sea fishing.

Nestled within mature gardens and a perfect countryside setting, ‘Dalgonar’, is an extended stone built cottage, which has been sympathetically maintained and imaginatively designed to offer excellent accommodation, with the real possibility for usage as a B & B or self-contained holiday accommodation due to its convenient location on the ever popular southern upland way. The cottage, which is south facing, has been designed to make the most of its unspoiled rural location with panoramic views across the local countryside. It’s an ideal purchase for those seeking a quiet retreat.

As part of the design of this property, great emphasis has been placed on the creation of easily managed and free flowing space and the main living accommodation has been designed to make best use of the fine open countryside views surrounding the property.
Internally this unique home comprises: Welcoming entrance vestibule with meter cupboard and arch way leading to the front hall with seating area. To the right hand side of the hall is an immediately impressive sitting room, which benefits from a large picture window to the front aspect, which floods the room with natural light and offers tremendous views of the surrounding countryside.

Off of the sitting room is a large double bedroom with window to the front, fitted wardrobes and a well-equipped En-suite which is fully tiled with large shower and storage cupboard. This part of the house has a separate oil heating system and has scope for extension into what is currently a barn and would make for a fantastic B & B or holiday let.
Penpont is approximately 13 miles (35 minute drive) and has great amenities such as a local shop, a hotel, a primary school and post office. Thornhill is a further 2 miles away and has a range of shops, a secondary school, medical centre, dental practice, cottage hospital, hotels and a golf course. Dumfries, 30 miles to the south, is an active country town, which provides a wide range of facilities, including schools, a hospital, a variety of shops, supermarkets, sports clubs and professional services. Drumlanrig Castle, the seat of the Duke of Buccleuch, is only about 15 miles away.

The M74, the main route from North West England to Scotland, is only 30 miles away and provides a motorway connection both north to Glasgow and south to Carlisle, where it joins the M6. There are railway stations at Dumfries, Lockerbie and Carlisle. Glasgow and its airport are about 62 miles to the north and Edinburgh is about 65 miles to the north east via the A702.

To find ‘Dalgoner’, firstly take the A76 to Thornhill to then take the A702 to Penpot. In the centre of Penpot there is a crossroad with a signpost stating ‘Sanquhar’. Take that right turn and follow this road for approximately two miles to where you will then find another signpost stating ‘Scaur Water’. Follow this road for approximately 1.5 miles to find a T junction at Druidhall Farm and take the left turn. After approximately 0.5 miles take the right fork on the road and stay on this road for another approximately 9 miles. You will then see a stone driveway on the right-hand side that will lead you to timber gates, then the property. Viewing is recommended to fully appreciate this grand property and the opportunities that awaits it.
