To the front of the Byre is a small workshop. Off the driveway there is a single Garage with up and over door.

The gardens are a joy. South facing they lie mainly to the front and are predominantly laid to lawn with an abundance of mature trees, shrubs and hedges. The garden also has a few soft fruit trees. There are delightful views over the garden to the Galloway Hills with a number of secluded and sunny spots to sit and take in the view. The gardens are securely fenced making it suitable for both children and animals.

The driveway sweeps up past the Croft and round in front of the Farmhouse with ample parking.

There is a lovely enclosed Courtyard to the rear of both properties laid to grass. From here there is access to the Byre which can also be accessed from the driveway.

Large well stocked vegetable garden bordered by hedges.

There is a single Garage and a Workshop.
