General Information
Auchenroddan is a superbly situated rural property, of traditional stone and slate construction, located within the boundary of Auchenroddan Forest to the north of Lockerbie. The M74 motorway network is within a 10 minute drive yet the property offers all that is to be expected from its completely rural surroundings.

At one time the property was owned by the Forestry Commission who are still the proprietors of Auchenroddan Forest.

Whilst the property has not been inhabited for several years and is in need of substantial refurbishment, it offers a very rare opportunity to acquire a most attractive dwelling in completely rural surroundings and with a most attractive outbuilding. The property would be suitable both as a full time residence or as a holiday home. The field barn provides potential for further development possibly into another dwelling or workshop/studio etc.

The accommodation which is on 2 floors provides the following;

Sun Room (8' 11" x 14' 8" or 2.72m x 4.47m)
With door to side and double doors to front. Glazed on 3 sides and with polycarbonate roof.

Front lobby
With access to sun room. Cloak cupboard.

Kitchen (15' 4" Max x 12' 5" Max or 4.67m Max x 3.78m Max)

Shower Room (5' 7" x 7' 10" or 1.70m x 2.40m)
With window to front and couplings for shower, w.c. and wash hand basin.

The property stands in a most attractive area of garden ground which merges into the surrounding forest. With a mainly south-easterly aspect, the house is well sheltered by the surrounding trees yet has a naturally sunny outlook.

Despite being somewhat overgrown it can be seen that at one time the property was attractively laid out with lawn and borders which lead down to the field barn.

The barn is of stone and slate construction and provides 2 compartments measuring 3.76m x 8.19m and 3.71m x 8.19m. At one time the building was used partly as a workshop and partly for the keeping of small scale livestock. It would be easy to convert the building for a wide variety of uses including an additional dwelling, workshop or studio subject to the obtaining of all necessary consents.

A particularly attractive feature of the barn is the sandstone arched doorways.
