About this property

  • Arnsheen is an upland smallholding, accessible from the B7027 which runs south from Barrhill, joining the A714 just north of Newton Stewart. Whilst only 5 miles south of Barrhill, the land sits in a ring fenced block surrounded entirely by forestry, affording it great privacy, amenity and wildlife, interspersed with numerous picturesque lochs, and glens. There are wind turbines located in the woodland to the west of the property.

    A traditional rural farmhouse sits centrally on the holding with a southerly aspect and views towards the surrounding farmland and forestry.

    The farmhouse benefits from principally UPVC double glazing, oil fired central heating, private water supply and drainage to a septic tank. Externally there is a small garden laid to grass, a red gravel driveway, and ample room for parking. A large agricultural type building provides excellent additional storage or accommodation for livestock or horses.
