Full description

An attractive double bay fronted Victorian mansion house with northeast bay extension set over two floors and attic, of stone construction under slate roof. Set in approximately 8½ acres of mixed woodland and grazings, Dunjop was most recently used as a private nursing home but which might be suited to future use as a guest house or returned to its former grandeur as a private country house with land suitable for those interested in equestrian pursuits subject to the appropriate consents for change of use. The property benefits from double glazing, LPG gas fired heating, a lift between the ground and first floor levels, an impressive conservatory and approximately 8½ acres of private garden grounds.

Dunjop House is located in a tree covered hillside location within easy access of the A75 and handy commuting distance to both Castle Douglas and the "Artists' Town" of Kirkcudbright. The property was converted approximately 30 years ago to form private nursing home accommodation suitable for 19 service users which would likely require restoration or reinstatement to its former grandeur as a substantial mansion set within extensive private garden grounds.

The southwest of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers and of course golf. The Solway is also a popular yachting destination and nearby Kirkcudbright has improved berthing facilities.

The A75 is a trunk road east-west from Carlisle to Stranraer linking with the M74/M6 motorways and Dumfries has a railway connection to Carlisle and the south or north.

The property should be viewed to be fully appreciated.
