Occupying the entire ground floor of this corner site, the former Masons Hall has a long and interesting history dating back to 1813. The building is Category B listed. Situated at the crossroads of quaint rural Galloway village which is surrounded by rolling hills with great views over open farmland, has a village hall, local church, a friendly, thriving community spirit and a regular bus service to and from the neighbouring towns of Springholm, Crockertford, Castle Douglas and Dumfries where a number of local amenities are available. This unique and quirky two bedroom property has many traditional features throughout and offers prospective purchasers lots of potential for alterations/upgrading internally subject to planning consent where necessary and would benefit from some modernisation/refurbishment work.
