Marion Currie of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “This is a wonderful off-the-beaten track house that has great potential for use as it currently is, as an attractive holiday let, or indeed as a family home.  There is  a wonderful sense of peace and repose as you approach the property and it is an ideal location for families seeking an active outdoor lifestyle with space for children and dogs. Despite this privacy and tranquillity, the thriving village of Dunscore is only three miles away. We expect a good deal of interest.”

The striking public spaces are open plan under a vaulted ceiling featuring exposed oak beams. Stone from the original bothy on the site has been incorporated into the interior of the hallway, providing a stylish feature.

With three bedrooms, a bathroom and a further shower room, Glenview is an ideal family retreat, or as in its current use, a high-quality holiday let.

The two-acre garden at Glenview is a wonderful haven for wildlife including red squirrels, roe deer, owls, pine martens and the occasional red deer.  Areas of grass give a sense of space and room for relaxation, outdoor entertaining and there is also a pond, a further benefit to wildlife. The surrounding forest adds privacy and plenty of potential for walking and cycling.

Glenview is about three miles from the village of Dunscore, which has a primary school, doctor’s surgery, a community hall, a community-run pub, and church. There is a community web site which gives more detail on village activities and facilities. A broader range of shops, schools and services are available in Thornhill, or in the regional capital of Dumfries, about 14 miles away.
