A small farm with a four bedroom farmhouse, woodland garden, a range of traditional and modern outbuildings and options for purchasing surrounding land.

DESCRIPTION
Nether Monybuie is a charming traditional small Dumfriesshire farmhouse and steading arranged around a central courtyard. Accessed by its own private driveway, the property is secluded with far reaching views. White painted under a slate roof, the addition of a large triple dormer to the first floor has provided airy and spacious bedroom accommodation. The large dining kitchen runs the depth of the house and has the potential to be the real heart of a family home. Whilst the house would benefit from internal upgrading, it is already well appointed in terms of accommodation with a flexible layout including the former farm office which opens into a store housing the boiler and forming part of the steading. With the correct planning consents obtained, it would be possible to extend the accommodation into part of the steading if desired.

The steading comprises a number of areas including a byre with central channel and stone troughs, a large workshop with vehicular access doors, and a modern cattle shed. The woodland garden to the front of the house has huge potential for landscaping and planting. To the side of the steading is an area of undeveloped amenity ground, which also contains the borehole for the water supply. Again there is potential for landscaping here.
