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