This five bedroom property, which boasts a master suite, has been thoughtfully extended over the years to form the compact elegant country house it is today. It benefits from sizeable grounds extending to 3.85 acres and comprises a grazing paddock suitable for equestrian use.


The property’s spacious reception rooms comprise a welcoming sitting room, elegant drawing room with French doors to the garden and patio, and a dining room with French doors to the courtyard. All rooms exude warmth and present true country living. The farmhouse style kitchen is the heart of the home with shaker units and both an Aga and range cooker.


The current owners have also converted the large stone barn adjacent to the house to form a superb and attractive games and entertainment barn. This barn conversion offers a range of uses with a workshop, games room and billiard room complete with seating area and log burning stove.


Marion Currie, handling the sale for Galbraith, said: “The Clachan is a beautiful country house, ideal for equestrian lovers. The interior of the property exudes warmth and character and is the perfect location for a family to fully embrace country living in rural Dumfries-shire. The additional barn conversion is a great entertainment and games space and also offers flexibility for those keen to run a rural business.


“A derelict former outbuilding provides scope for development for additional residential space, subject to consent, further enhancing the appeal of this property and all it has to offer.”


The garden grounds are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees, shrubs and raised beds and a greenhouse provides scope for the keen gardener to grow their own produce. The barn has a further area of lawn again with mature trees and shrubs.


The Clachan is approximately four miles from the Fairtrade village of Dunscore, which has a strong sense of community, and Dumfries is the regional capital with an extensive range of amenities. Dumfries railway station connects with Glasgow, Edinburgh and Carlisle with regular services and domestic and international flights are available from Edinburgh and Glasgow airports, both around 80 miles distant.
