Situation
The attractive conservation town of Moffat forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway region. The town is positioned on the A701 adjacent to the M74 motorway approx 45 miles north of Carlisle and around 50 miles south of Edinburgh. For many, Moffat is a gateway to Scotland acting as a first stop after crossing the border from England en route to destinations further north. Its pretty position in the lush green countryside astride the River Annan also makes it a wonderful place to visit and explore. Many walkers take the challenge of the long distance footpath, the Southern Upland Way, while sporting enthusiasts are drawn to enjoy the many quality golf courses, etc. in the area.

Business
The business has been run by the current proprietors for the last 9 years. During this time it has been sympathetically modernised and upgraded to a high standard, officially being rewarded with 4 stars from both VisitScotland and the AA. The business is run on a bed and breakfast basis only by the current husband and wife team. With trade being derived from the above two organisations it also generates much repeat custom, passing trade and trade from the businesses own website which can be found at www.limetreehouse.co.uk.


Building Internal
Limetree House is a Georgian townhouse, modernised and upgraded to a high standard while retaining many of the original features including the highly decorative corniced ceiling etc. The entrance leads to an attractive reception hallway where all public areas can be accessed and staircase to the upper floor levels.

Just off the hallway is the lounge. This room is spacious and is elegantly presented. There is a selection of comfortable sofas and is a lovely place to relax after a day’s exploring of Dumfries and Galloway. On the opposite side of the hallway is the dining room. Again similar in style, there is a bright neutral décor with windowing to the front and side. Modern tables and chairs create approx 14/15 covers.


Letting Accomodation
There are 6 bedrooms, all of which are en-suite, 1 bedroom has a full sized bathroom with bath and shower. In addition to 2 double rooms, there is 1 twin room on the ground floor, suitable for guests with limited mobility. The bathroom has a shower seat and handrail. There is a master bedroom with king size bed and a family suite of 2 rooms with en-suite bathroom. All the rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated and have TV's (Freeview), DVD players, tea/coffee making facilities and hairdryers.

Owners Accomodation
The owners’ accommodation is spacious. On the second floor level there is a double en-suite bedroom while located behind the kitchen area there is a separate flat. This has been changed to offer a good sized office and living room and could easily be a further bedroom if required.

Garage & Workshop
There is a garage and workshop to the side of the business which has Planning Permissions granted for conversion. It is anticipated the garage and workshop could be converted into self-catering accommodation.

Service Areas
Service areas within the property are extensive. There is a well fitted modern domestic kitchen and other areas include a utility room and downstairs WC.

Services
The property has all mains services connected.

Building External

Tenure

Trading Figures

Summary
The business sale offers an excellent opportunity for new owners to purchase a substantial building which is trading well with excellent scope to be promoted further, therefore making it even more profitable.
