Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An imposing, listed building set on a generous plot of circa 1.5 acres of attractive grounds on the outskirts of the historic village of Canonbie, with an attractive rural outlook over open fields and woodland towards the Scottish hills and countryside of Dumfries and Galloway and the Cumbrian fells of the Lake District. Having been restored to a high standard by the current owners, the property is approached by a sweeping driveway through enclosed and beautifully maintained private grounds. Retaining many period features including sash windows with fitted, working shutters, the spacious accommodation briefly comprises three reception rooms and sun room, modern fitted kitchen with additional breakfast room, four generous bedrooms, en-suite shower room and two family bathrooms. The adjoining coach house has been converted into a self contained annexe and is currently used as a successful holiday let, offering open plan living, dining, kitchen to the ground floor with two en-suite two double bedrooms to the first floor. Externally, the substantial, mature gardens are well stocked and separated with a large formal rear garden.

This exceptional family home provides versatile accommodation and benefits. The Coach House has been converted to a self-contained Annexe and is currently used as a self-catering holiday let with an open plan layout on the ground floor and two large ensuite bedrooms to the first floor. The business is an ongoing concern and has had many 5* reviews and awards, being a popular choice with the local fishing and walking community. Alternatively, this flexible living space could equally be used as additional living space for a multi-generational family (granny annexe), or as an ideal home office/business space for working from home. A further option would be to incorporate the Annexe back into the main house, resulting in an outstanding 6 bedroom family home set in stunning rural countryside.
