Glenhapple Farm presents a wonderful opportunity for those looking for a lifestyle change, with a traditional stone farmhouse and steading, and grazing paddocks extending to 11.5 acres. A gas Rayburn keeps the farmhouse Kitchen warm all year round and provides additional cooking facilities to the electric hob and oven. The Kitchen overlooks the garden, where there is an array of mature shrubs and trees and cottage garden feel. The Kitchen opens through to a well-lit hallway and staircase, with a large fitted cupboard and doors opening to the Living Room, Sitting Room and Shower Room. The double aspect Sitting Room has a Clearview multifuel stove and can also be accessed from the Entrance Vestibule. The Lounge which benefits from a Jetmaster open fire, opens directly in to the Conservatory where the stunning garden can be fully appreciated. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, including one en-suite bedroom, as well as a study, bathroom and dressing room.
Central Heating is powered by a Worcester LPG boiler, situated in an external store, and water is from a private supply. Windows are a combination of double glazed UPVC, single glazed sash and case windows and Velux roof windows.
Glenhapple Farm is situated on the edge of Newton Stewart, hidden away in a peaceful location, on the A714 Newton Stewart to Girvan Road and bordered in parts by RSPB woodland. Glentrool Visitor Centre, less than 6 miles from the property, offers forest walks, mountain biking, an abundance of wildlife. The area is also part of the Dark Sky Park, and is a wonderful place to enjoy the night sky, in one of the darkest places in Scotland.

The traditional U shaped steading lies adjacent to Glenhapple Farmhouse and is generally in good order for the age of the buildings. The building to the north is stone with slate roof. The remaining east and south buildings are stone with corrugated roofs. The buildings are currently used for storage and house two stables with ample room to expand. Subject to the necessary consents, there could be development potential for the steading.
The land extends to approximately 11.5 acres (4.65 hectares) of Grade 5(3) as assigned by the James Hutton Institute. It is currently used to graze horses. The woodland on neighbouring properties provides privacy for equestrian use.
The garden is well established with a variety of mature shrubs, trees, flowers and planters, with lawn walkways meandering around the flourishing vegetation creating a stunning private country garden.
