Attractive one bedroom end of terrace cottage situated in the picturesque hamlet of Mossdale. Now in need of some renovation, the property provides deceptively spacious 1 bedroom accommodation but with scope for extension, subject to local planning consent. The large garden to the rear is a real bonus with Bennan Hill and countryside providing a stunning backdrop from which to enjoy from the property. Providing an ideal property to escape to the peace and tranquillity of the Glenkens either for personal or business use.
Bengour sits as part of a small collection of houses with beautiful countryside views to the rear and looking on to Mossdale Loch and Bennan Hill.
Mossdale is a small hamlet situated on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park. Situated just a short distance from the nearby Red Kite feeding station, it is perfect dog walking and horse riding countryside.
