Gorsemoor is situated beside the B7041 as it makes its way to Scotland’s most southerly point, the Mull of Galloway. The smallholding is surrounded by open farmland and has far reaching views, from the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse extending to the Isle Man and Lake District on a clear day. The Mull of Galloway Lighthouse has open days for viewing the exhibition, you can also climb to the top of the Lighthouse, visit the nearby RSPB nature reserve or Gallie Craig restaurant and gift shop which nestle at the top of the cliffs. The nearby hamlet of Damnaglaur leads down to the village of Drummore, a harbour village with a primary school, play-park, church, shop, Post Office, bowling green, doctors’ surgery, Fire Station, Coast-guard Station, hotel and restaurants.
Logan Botanic Gardens, Scotland’s most exotic gardens is approximately 8.3 miles from Gorsemoor. A variety of tropical plants flourish here in the warmer climate, a result of the Gulf Stream flowing through the region. Terally Equestrian Centre is on the outskirts of Drummore and within easy reach of the property.
Stranraer is the nearest town providing a wider range of shops, supermarkets, offices, a leisure centre and secondary school.
Gorsemoor is a charming smallholding with stunning views, a real escape to the country. Double gates open into a concrete courtyard with space for parking numerous cars, a tractor or horse lorry. A large fenced paddock stretches out behind the property in a long strip, and a smaller paddock sits closer to the buildings. A piece of land situated behind the stable block, outlined in blue on the site plan, previously had planning permission for a dwelling house, (ref: 94/TP/1121) which has now lapsed, but could be reapplied for. Gorsemoor sits under a slate roof and is double glazed throughout and oil fired heating is provided by a Worcester Bosch boiler which was fitted in 2016 and still under warranty. The double aspect Sitting Room has a sky light, allowing light to flow in to the room. A a solid oak fire place, with slate hearth and a multi fuel stove keep the room looking and feeling cosy all year round. Gorsemoor provides a wonderful opportunity for those seeking a change of lifestyle in a beautiful rural area.
The garden at the rear of the property is mainly laid to lawn, with a few former aviaries situated along the back boundary. Raised beds provide an array of colour, visible from the kitchen window.
