Description

Whiteside enjoys an idyllic hillside location in the heart of the Dumfriesshire countryside, located approximately 4.5 miles from the village of Dunscore and approximately 15 miles from Dumfries.

The property has been lovingly converted over the near three decades of the current proprietors’ residence. Two sides of the courtyard have been transformed to provide very substantial accommodation which would suit either family living or possible sub division for rental purposes. One side of the courtyard continues to function as storage and offers scope for possible development although no approach has been made by the sellers to the local authority in this regard. The property benefits from a recently installed biomass boiler and features a number of multi fuel stoves throughout.

The grounds are stunning and during the Summer months the gardens, which have been added by the sellers over the last 20 years, have been open to the public as
part of the Scotland’s Garden scheme.

MISCELLANEOUS
