Stunning Georgian Estate in the Scottish Borders Offers Seclusion and Post-COVID Country Lifestyle

Piers Morton

H&H Land & Estates bring to market an impressive country mansion, ideal for buyers seeking a spacious rural residence with the scope for income-generating options in the Borders.

Nestled in the spectacular Scottish Borders scenery of woodland and mountains, Dumcrieff House is a recently upgraded category B listed property offering great potential as a family home or entrepreneurial venture. Located in Dumfries, this small Georgian estate encompasses 67 acres of land including pasture, a gate lodge, lawns, and woodland with accompanying sporting rights.

Original features throughout the house bring period style into the 21st Century with well-maintained and contemporary renovations. Ready to walk into, this sizeable home boasts nine bedrooms, six bathrooms and five reception rooms, including a games room and snooker room. It currently has a recommended guide price of £1.25m.

Piers Morton, Cumbria Branch Manager for H&H Land & Estates, comments on the sale:
“This really is a truly unique property. With more and more people wanting homes in the country, Dumcrieff House offers an enviable private setting in a beautiful landscape. Not only that, but we are excited about the option for potential buyers to re-establish a business prospect at the residence. It has already been operated as a wedding and hospitality venue, and the grounds offer substantial sporting activities along with a picturesque accommodation to let.”

The small farming estate therefore includes the possibility of the additional lots consisting of Dumcrieff Lodge and its garden, two tracts of woodland covering more than six acres each, and two stretches of grazing land (37 acres and 3.9 acres) which are also for sale. With ample opportunities for further renovations on the third floor of the main property, the income-generating potential is significant, especially given its accessible location in the Borders.

Piers continues: “Any buyer would be lucky to purchase this one-of-a-kind property. They would follow a notable lineage of historical families and figures, including the Scottish politician Sir John Clerk and the physician of the Empress of Russia – Catherine the Great! This really makes it stand out and its wealth of classical style remains from its original 1684 commission. The grounds and gardens are the type of outdoor space increasingly desired in a post-lockdown world, and really do offer that peaceful country-side lifestyle that is in such demand right now.”

  • Over the past few months, I’ve been dealing with Jenna to sort out some issues with a tenant that left and to find a new tenant for my property. You’ve been the managing agent for my flat since 2005 and the service that Jenna has given me recently has been nothing short of superb. She has promptly answered questions, given me reassurance and generally been a godsend over a fairly stressful time. You have a tremendous asset in Jenna.

  • From my first dealings with the valuer who came out to look at my property and telephone dealings with the staff in the office, I have had nothing but excellent service and I would like to thank them all for that. My biggest thanks must go to Gillian, who has helped me all the way from start to finish, she has gone beyond my expectations and helped me in every way possible, her enthusiasm and humour along with her professional service has made my experience of selling my property a very pleasant experience and for that I am very grateful.

  • Thank you so much [Mike] for all your help with the Mid-Tier Application. I couldn't have possibly done it myself and it was such a relief to be able to hand it over to you.

  • We are very pleased with the way you dealt with the Scroggs Wood programme. There seemed to be a number of difficulties, but you overcame all these problems and got the timber extracted in good time, and sold it well - we were delighted with the cheques we received. So we wish to thank you warmly for all your efforts, your expertise and your thoroughly professional approach.
