Mine House is located in a beautiful quiet location just outside the village of Auchencairn. Set in rolling pasture, Mine House enjoys excellent views in a southerly direction over towards the sea to the Cumbrian Coast, whilst to the northeast Bengairn Hill provides a rugged back-drop.

The property will be a significant attraction to many as the house sits in a quiet location within a well-established garden which includes areas of lawn, established flowers and shrubs and generous fruit and vegetable growing areas. Mine House offers well proportioned flexible family accommodation.

Historically the original property was previously the family home of the manager of an old iron mine situated about 200 metres down the hill and to the right of the house. This mine consisted of a series of fairly shallow holes in the ground. There were no shafts or tunnels and therefore no mine works anywhere near the house itself to worry about!

The house enjoys a spectacular rural setting is less than 2 miles from the village of Auchencairn with its Primary School and Post Office/Shop. A wider variety of amenities is available in the nearby Artist’s Town of Kirkcudbright, Food Town of Castle Douglas or in Dalbeattie from where there is also a fast road through to the main town of Dumfries.

There is a detached single storey annexe building ideal for friends or relatives visiting who want a degree of independence and privacy. The annexe was refurbished in around 2012. It was rewired, re-plumbed, new kitchen units were fitted, new flooring, new bathroom and redecorated throughout. It now offers excellent accommodation fora number of visitors. Two patio areas, one with wooden table, bench and barbeque area.

A graveled driveway leads past the conservatory to the front door. A hedge of mixed hawthorn and beech separates the garden from the adjacent field. The gravelled driveway continues towards the second exterior door which leads to the utility room.

Patio area between the two exterior doors again enjoying views towards the sea. Woodstore. Steps lead down towards the annexe and there is an open patio area adjacent to the field and front of the annexe with a sheltered area for barbequing. Continuing round to the rear of the house there are areas of lawn interspersed with
rockery areas as well as an established pond.

Moving further away from the house there is a fruit growing area and a good sized vegetable growing area to the side of this, well laid out with paths for ease of access between the six raised beds.

The garden is a haven for wildlife and much of the flora provides food, particularly for birds.  There are two good sized wooden sheds, each with a pitched roof, one finished in corrugated pvc and the other has corrugated iron. One shed is currently used as a tool shed with a workbench and vice and the other for storage.
