Property description

Easily managed four bedroom detached home in the popular, picturesque village of Borgue.

The Old Blacksmiths affords a surprising amount of space, and the clever layout, with living accommodation upstairs and bedrooms downstairs, has allowed the best views and outlook to be enjoyed from the main living accommodation. The property itself has been recently refurbished and extended, and the use of attractive light wood doors sets off the interior.

All carpets and other fitted floor coverings, together with all curtains and other window coverings are included in the sale. Interested parties may like to note that other items are available by separate negotiation also.

The Old Blacksmiths is conveniently situated for the amenities of Borgue. The village itself is a very friendly and active community, with many events organised in the village hall.

This part of Dumfries & Galloway is renowned for its excellent scenery. Inland there are magnificent hills and lochs, whilst Borgue is particularly well placed to enjoy the many attractive areas of coastline in close proximity, with Carrick and Sandgreen being perhaps the best known.


Immediately outside the patio windows leading from the sitting area of the living space, is a patio area suited to alfresco dining. The remainder of the ground to the rear is finished in gravel for ease of maintenance. Interested parties should note that title is held to the ground as far as the fence at the end of the garden and therefore if for any reason it was desired to open up an entrance from the area adjacent to the front door directly to the garden, this should be possible.
