Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An imposing former farmhouse of traditional construction under slate roof, located on the outskirts of Castle Douglas enjoying an elevated location with an excellent outlook over farmland towards the River Dee, Threave Castle and the Galloway hills beyond. The property is in need of a certain amount of refurbishment but benefits from oil fired heating, an Aga range cooker, partial double glazing, and set in good sized private garden grounds with a range of traditional outbuildings.

Includes 6.5 acre paddock which was previously available separately. Other outbuildings may be available by separate negotiation.

Chapmanton House is an imposing traditional Galloway farmhouse set in good sized, yet easily maintained garden grounds, lying on the outskirts of Castle Douglas and accessed by means of a shared private driveway. The twin bay double front of the property is generally south facing and commands excellent views across farmland with more distant views of the River Dee, Threave Castle and the Galloway hills beyond. Nearby Castle Douglas is a thriving Galloway market town lying approximately 18 miles southwest of Dumfries and enjoying an enviable range of shops and other facilities in a town now promoted and known as the "Food Town". At one time the property was utilised for bed and breakfast purposes but provides spacious family accommodation albeit that it would benefit from a degree of refurbishment and modernisation. The property has been priced accordingly and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

The sellers retain ownership of surrounding farmland and further outbuildings.Some of the outbuildings lying to the rear of the property might also be available by separate negotiation for those seeking a lifestyle change or for those interested in equestrian pursuits or hobby farming.
