‘Braeside’ is a picturesque cottage nestled into the hillside of the idyllic village of Wanlockhead.
With breath-taking views over the Lowther hills, this charming property is set over two levels and comprises of: entrance hallway, lounge, kitchen, bathroom, dining room and two bedrooms.
The lounge overlooks the front gardens and the stunning views beyond, and features a fabulous log burning fire, perfect for winter nights. Leading from the lounge, the well-appointed kitchen is flooded with natural light from two sky light windows and has been finished with a good range of storage, an electric oven and hob, and space for further appliances. Also overlooking the front of the property and benefitting from the views, the bright and spacious dining room could be used for a variety of purposes, and would make a perfect third bedroom if required. Completing the ground floor, the bathroom has been beautifully finished with a modern roll top bath, corner shower unit, sink and WC.
At the top of the stairs there is a small landing which leads to both bedrooms. Almost identical in size and style, each room has been tastefully decorated, and feature Velux windows to both the front, and rear aspect, allowing plenty of natural light.
Additional comforts are; double glazing throughout, Hive heating system, underfloor heating & fibre broadband ideal for home working.
The gardens lie to the front and side of the property and a real gardener’s delight. Landscaped with colourful flower beds and surrounded by mature shrubs and trees to provide peace and seclusion, this lovely outdoor space only adds to the charm of Braeside. There is a tidy log store and covered ‘lean-to’ potting shed and store to the rear. Various parking options are available around the cottage.
Wanlockhead is a village in Dumfries and Galloway, nestling in the Lowther Hills, 1 mile south of Leadhills and at the head of the Mennock Pass, which forms part of the Southern Uplands. It is Scotland's highest village, at an elevation of around 466.6 m and can be accessed via the B797, which connects it to the A76 near Sanquhar and the A74(M) motorway at Abington, making for an easy commute to Glasgow or South towards Carlisle.
The village features a lead mining museum and is the home of Scotland’s highest pub. It also sits on the Southern Upland Way, a walking trail that traditionally starts at Portpatrick on the west coast, in Dumfries & Galloway, and finishes some 212 miles (341 km) away at Cockburnspath on the east coast, in the Scottish Borders.
A friendly and welcoming conservation village and popular tourist destination, Wanlockhead and the surrounding area is widely used by outdoor enthusiasts for walking, cycling and skiing. For those looking to slow down the pace of life, Braeside offers the perfect opportunity and early viewing is highly recommended.
