Full description

Upper Mumbie enjoys an excellent rural location on the east side of the Esk Valley between Canonbie and Langholm. Both the farmhouse and cottage enjoy tremendous outlooks up the valley. The small village of Claygate, with its village hall (Gilnockie Hall) lies approximately one mile to the south of Upper Mumbie. Each of Canonbie and Langholm provide a good range of shops, schools, sporting and recreational facilities. There is a primary school in Canonbie and high school in Langholm.

The surrounding countryside is noted for its peace and scenery whilst Carlisle and the M6 are within easy reach by car. The Lake District is also easily accessible.

Upper Mumbie farmhouse is an attractive, traditional family home largely at ground floor level. The property benefits from oil fired central heating and has excellent built in storage space - particularly at first floor level.

The adjoining cottage was created in part of the farm steading and provides comfortable and well appointed secondary accommodation. The cottage would be ideal as a granny annexe or offers the chance for a lifestyle change with the opportunity of holiday or longer term lets. The cottage benefits from double glazing and electric space heating.

The remaining steading buildings lie around a sheltered courtyard and provide excellent storage/workshop space with the potential for further redevelopment in the future, if desired - subject to planning.

There is an attractive garden which lies to the south of the farmhouse and along the north side of both the farmhouse and cottage. The farmhouse garden enjoys a good degree of privacy and includes lawn, shrubs and a summer house. The area of garden ground along the north side of the farmhouse and cottage incudes lawn and decking and enjoys tremendous views up the Esk Valley.

Whilst the farmhouse would now benefit from a degree of modernisation and upgrading Upper Mumbie exudes character and has been a happy family home for many years.

SERVICES
Mains electricity and water. Private drainage. The farmhouse has oil fired central heating, the cottage having electric space heating.
