The Manse is located on the western edge of Newton Wamphray, a village on the River Annan, in the north east of Dumfries and Galloway.

The village is roughly halfway between Moffat and
Lockerbie and has good access to the A74(M), the direct route from Carlisle to Glasgow. A wide range of independent shops and services are located nearby in the attractive rural town of Moffat.
Lockerbie provides a wider range of services including a West Coast Main Line railway station. Both towns offer primary and secondary level education. A regular bus service, running between Moffat and Lockerbie stops in the village.

The rural area is renowned for its picturesque rolling countryside whilst being within comfortably commutable, south to Carlisle and north to both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The Manse was built around 1880 for the minister of the local parish church. The handsome house is south facing and of traditional stone construction under a pitched slate roof. A sun room was added in
more recent times and the further addition of an impressive spacious kitchen was added in 2020.

The former stables to the rear of the house has been converted into a detached, single storey cottage and would make an ideal granny annex, holiday let or home office.

Both the house and cottage have recently undergone a full and intensive programme of modernisation to provide elegant, family sized accommodation suitable for modern day living standards. The upgrading has been extensive and has included upgrading the plumbing, heating and electrical systems, the installation of new bathroom fittings and redecoration and flooring throughout.

Outside the house is approached through elegant stone pillars to a gravel parking area. There is an area of garden in front of the house protected by a Beech hedge. The grounds to the side and behind
the house are currently in grass and provides a blank canvass for landscaping or the creation of a paddock.

A timer summer house is positioned to make the most of the impressive views surrounding Newton Wamphray.
