Realter Estate Agents are delighted to present to the market, a substantial sandstone property, with spacious family living accommodation. The property is situated in the popular village of Lochfoot with amenities including a primary school. The nearby town of Dumfries is 6 miles away and the pretty market town of Castle Douglas is approx. 14 miles from the village. This family home is conveniently located for the new Dumfries Hospital which is only a 5 minute drive from Lochfoot.
The property has an adjoining 1 bedroom annexe suitable for a granny flat, or would offer a great letting opportunity. The property was built in 1892 and was initially built as a family home with the annexe being the village shop. The Red House has traded as a bed and breakfast for many years and still accommodates shooters and their dogs when they are in the region.
The large front door leads into a vestibule, with the original mosaic tiled floor, and from there we enter the welcoming hallway. The spacious living room with the original fireplace is on the left. The master bedroom with ensuite shower room is to the rear of the property, as is the spacious kitchen, which offers stunning views across the local countryside. The ground floor also houses a dining room which is currently used as a 2nd sitting room. Access is available through this room into the adjoining annexe.
Ascending the stairs to the 1st floor, we pass a stunning stained glass window on the half landing. On reaching the 1st floor, the sizeable landing offers us a further 4 bedrooms, family bathroom, and a shower room.
The annexe is accessed either through the adjoining door from the dining room or from a private
entrance at the front of the house which leads into a 2nd vestibule. The annexe comprises of
an open plan kitchen and living room on the ground floor, with a staircase leading to a double
bedroom and family bathroom on the 1st floor.

Externally, the property has a large private garden opposite the house. The driveway opens out to a
spacious yard at the rear of the house, which accommodates an exceptionally large double
garage/workshop, dog kennel, for more than 1 dog, and a dog run.

The property benefits from mains gas central heating and excellent double glazing throughout. It has been rewired and well maintained. This is a truly a great property, with great potential and ample space for family living or as a potential B&B.
Viewing is highly recommended.
