DESCRIPTION

**CLOSING DATE WEDNESDAY 24TH MARCH AT 12 NOON**

Built by the late Grandfather of the executors, this property has been in the family since its construction circa 1914. A striking property still with many original features, surrounded by beautiful protected parkland in a popular location on the edge of the town of Lockerbie. The Hermitage has been altered, providing two apartments with separate access, predominantly split by ground floor and first floor (with one first floor bedroom exception to the ground floor apartment). The Hermitage is now in need of renovation and modernisation, in part, very likely look to convert back to one substantial residential dwelling. This is achievable by reversing the staircase alteration that was made to split the property and return it to a single dwelling. An attractive private setting within its own mature garden grounds (around 1.96 acres including buildings and driveway) further enhanced land extending to around 9.4 acres in total, of which 7.2 acres is designated as protected greenspace in the Local Authority Strategic Plan.
