Full description

Golfhill is an exceptional, 1920s property with original Art Deco features. The house is ideally located, within walking distance of Moffat, but situated in a secluded rural position with far-reaching views. The rooms are spacious, with individual character and although the accommodation would benefit from some upgrading, it provides a wonderful opportunity to create a first-class family home. The house is approached through an oak lined lobby with a glass partition door and fanlight above. This leads into an impressive reception hall with doors and staircases of pitch pine that opens onto the main reception rooms. The dining room for formal entertaining is well proportioned with windows on two sides and an original fireplace. There is a large study with a bay window and an oak surround fireplace. Beyond this is a large sitting room with a window seat and a gas fire in a feature fire place. This room opens into an attractive conservatory with a wooden floor and panoramic views over Moffat and its surrounding hills. There is a kitchen with a larder, store and boiler room. Adjoining this is a breakfast room that leads to the back door and a WC. The house enjoys many period features including adjustable light fittings, a working bell system and a fantastic tiled Art Deco WC.

The first floor is approached up a large, sweeping pine staircase lit by a stained-glass window. To the left off a half landing are two double bedrooms with basins and a box room. There are four further, large, double bedrooms, each with basins and one with a shower cupboard. There is a family bathroom with a cast iron bath.

The property is approached through decorative gates, up a tarmac drive with ample parking for several cars to the front and side. To the south-east of the house, there is a patio and steps down to a lower lawn with a variety of shrubs and planted beds. To the side of the property, there are two sheds, a greenhouse and a small vegetable garden.

Moffat is a vibrant, rural town with many local amenities including independent high street shops, supermarket, butcher, baker, delicatessen, cafes and restaurants. Moffat Academy is a combined nursery, primary and secondary school. In terms of recreation, there is a theatre, art galleries, museum, tennis courts, rugby club, cricket pitch, bowling green and an 18-hole golf course, the first hole of which is on the other side of the road from Golfhill. Moffat hosts events throughout the year including the annual Moffat Gala and the South of Scotland Tennis Tournament. There is a more comprehensive range of shops and services in Dumfries and Carlisle, while Edinburgh and Glasgow are easily accessible both by car and public transport.

Golfhill is well positioned for access to the M74 motorway, which offers easy access to Glasgow and the south, while the A701 from Moffat to Edinburgh is one of Scotland's most scenic routes. There are train stations at Lockerbie and Carlisle with services to Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. The international airports at Edinburgh and Glasgow offer a range of flights to UK, European and international destinations.

Dumfriesshire is a region of contrasting landscapes ranging from the high tops of the southern upland hills with beautiful forestry parks, to the sandy coastline of the Solway Firth. The Southern Upland Way, a coast to coast long distance footpath passes by the nearby village of Beattock as does the Annandale Way linking Moffat to Annan. There are many golf courses in the area to suit players of all levels of ability. For those keen on sailing or boating, there are extensive water sports facilities throughout the area, both inland and by the coast. The rivers in the area, including the Cairn, Nith and Annan, provide excellent fishing for salmon and sea-trout fishing; the county is particularly renowned for the quality of its field sports. The area has many scenic attractions including The Grey Mare's Tail Waterfall, St Mary's Loch and the Devil's Beef Tub.
