Trochie Farmhouse (3 bed) and Trochie Croft (2 bed) is situated in an enviable rural location amidst the rolling farmland of Dumfries and Galloway on the outskirts of New Galloway.
The gardens extend to 1.8 acres. The south facing Farmhouse is beautifully presented and is enhanced by the Courtyard setting to the rear and the delightful views to the front over the gardens.
The Farmhouse is tastefully decorated throughout a nice feature being the stripped wooden doors. It benefits from the majority of the rooms being double glazed and oil fired central heating.
Whilst the grounds are now formally laid out to lawns with vegetable gardens and courtyard these could easily be brought back to paddocks for a small pony or indeed any small livestock enterprise.
The detached cottage is well maintained and would make an ideal holiday letting business or a "granny flat". Attached to the Cottage is the old byre. Planning permission was granted to convert the byre into residential use a number of years ago but this has now lapsed.
New Galloway is a peaceful village located at the northern end of Loch Ken. Amenities located within the village include the very popular Kells primary school, The CatStrand Theatre providing film screening, workshops and community events, the Glenkens Medical Practice, a hotel, tea room and gift shop, as well as a village shop, and also a post office.
Both primary and secondary schools can be found in the nearby village of Dalry (about 3 miles) as well as a shop, 2 hotels and a garage. A broader range of facilities can be found in Castle Douglas, which is known as Scotland's Food Town and has many local individual shops and businesses providing a varied selection of gifts, foods and services. There are both primary and secondary schools in the town along with supermarkets, health services, veterinary services and a thriving livestock market and golf course.
