Old Manse in rural Dumfriesshire

St Edmund Hall is a fabulous red sandstone house which was built as a manse in around 1844. The property has recently been comprehensively refurbished and now provides excellent, well balanced accommodation over three floors.

The rooms are beautifully proportioned and there are some wonderful features including marble fireplaces, ceiling roses, deep cornicing and picture rails.

The accommodation is approached through a porch and the principal reception rooms – drawing room, dining room and morning room (which also has double doors out to the garden) – face south and enjoy wonderful views over open countryside and the Scar Water to the hills; the breakfast room enjoys great views out to the mature gardens. Upstairs are four excellent first floor bedrooms, all en suite, and the second floor has two further bedrooms.

The property also comes with a studio apartment which has independent access from the central courtyard to the rear of the house and offers a double bedroom and a wet room as well as an open plan sitting room/kitchen.

The principal garden is situated to the west of the property and offers some magnificent views whilst the rest of the gardens benefit from fruit trees and further mature planting.

The Hall occupies a wonderful elevated position above the Scaur Water on the eastern periphery of Penpont in Dumfriesshire and the countryside combines rolling grass farmland, spectacular coastline and magnificent forests. There aren’t any major conurbations nearby but Thornhill (two miles) has a range of shops, secondary school, cottage hospital and some hotels; the M74 is just 16 miles and Edinburgh is 65 miles.

The guide price is £750,000. For further information please telephone 0131 247 3717 or visit
