About this property

  • Netherwood Bank is an elegant, Listed mansion house built in the early 19th century set in a superb elevated position with beautiful uninterrupted open aspects to the front over rolling countryside and hills beyond. We understand that the south flank and conservatory were added in the late 19th century; the conservatory has beautiful Grecian style cast iron cresting.

    The accommodation begins with a grand Doric columned entrance portico and then a welcoming reception hallway which has a cloakroom/WC. Off the hall is a magnificent drawing room with ornate plaster cornicing and bay window taking full advantage of the stunning view. Stained glass doors lead to the conservatory with original mosaic tiled floor and doors leading to the garden. There is a formal dining room with bay window and an additional reception room in the form of a cosy sitting room. The kitchen has a four oven cream AGA, a range of base and wall mounted units and plenty of room for a breakfast table. The ground floor is completed by a pantry, utility room and boot room.

    On the first floor there is an exceptionally spacious playroom which could also be utilised as a principal bedroom, along with five well proportioned double bedrooms, one with a dressing room off, and another with an en suite bathroom. There is also a spacious family bathroom.

    The second floor comprises two additional double bedrooms and a box room.

    The basement contains a workshop, storeroom, tool store, wine cellar, coal store and larder.

    The delightful gardens are a credit to the current owners. They are partially lawned with a magnificent variety of fir trees, mature trees and rhododendrons along with beautifully planted beds and borders, all designed for seasonal colour and incorporating terraces, wildlife pond, a grass tennis court and an area of woodland which provides shelter and privacy.

One of the finest country homes in the south west of Scotland and surrounded by mature gardens which offer a wealth of seasonal colour.
