Detached Scandinavian style chalet of solid log construction offering bight, spacious accommodation with fine views.

Braemar Lodge is located within the Barend development on the Solway Coast approximately 6 miles from Dalbeattie and 4 miles from Kippford. This detached property is a Scandinavian style ‘A’ frame chalet of solid log construction and has fine views across open fields and forest covered hills beyond from ground and first floor level windows and balconies.

This charming property is beautifully presented throughout providing light, bright, flexible accommodation and benefits from LPG fired air ducted central heating throughout and would make an ideal permanent residential, holiday home or holiday let investment.

The property has operated successfully for a number of years as a self-catering holiday let by the current owners with a gross revenue of approximately £23,000 per year.

Within Barend itself there is a private heated indoor swimming pool which chalet owners may have the opportunity to join, an on site bar and restaurant. The beach at Sandyhills is within 10 minutes’ walk away and all that Dumfries & Galloway has to offer is within easy driving distance.

The property is perfectly situated a short drive away from Dalbeattie’s very good range of local facilities, retail outlets, pubs and restaurants. The town itself benefits from the recently modernised Dalbeattie Learning Campus and newly built Health Centre. There are also a number of sporting activities available, including tennis courts (situated in Colliston Park), golf course, badminton, and the renowned “7 stanes” mountain bike course.

The town itself is well sited a short distance from Dumfries and its new state-of-theart hospital and the attractive Solway Coast around Kippford and Rockcliffe is only a few minutes’ drive away. The regional market town of Castle Douglas (also known as “The Food Town”) and the Artists’ Town of Kirkcudbright are also nearby.
