15 acres smallholding with a 2 bedroom farm house, garages and 18 kennels in a remote and very peaceful location.
Lamphitt is situated south of the Forest of Ae with access via a 1.5 mile forest road to an attractive rural setting with views to the Dumfriesshire hills and to the Solway and Cumbria coast. The open access forest is extensive with the potential to ride, cycle or walk into the adjoining forest without using roads to include routes that will take you as far as Moffat or Beattock which is around 14 miles. Ae village is approximately 2 miles away with access onto the public road at the Forestry Commission Centre at around 1.5 miles. The nearest shopping and main facilities is Dumfries which is around 11 miles to the south and the motorway can be accessed at either Lockerbie (14 miles) or Moffat (just under 18miles). Although an agricultural holding this property with its historical connections as far back as the Jacobites, has potential for many alternative uses from family home to equestrian, leisure business or reinstatement of the agricultural smallholding.
