Property Details

Hewats have the pleasure in presenting to the market Netheryett Farm, Haugh of Urr, Castle Douglas. Netheryett Farm is situated on a local bus route, in an enviable location amidst the rolling farmland of Dumfries and Galloway with unrestricted views to the front, approximately 3 miles from Dalbeattie and 5 miles from Castle Douglas. Netheryett Farm is a traditional two storey farmhouse with spacious and airy accommodation making it a lovely home. The Farmhouse was built approximately 200 years ago. There is an opportunity to purchase the property as whole or in separate lots as seen on Page 9 of these details.

The Farmhouse also benefits from a separate Annexe and Static Caravan, which the current owners have used as holiday letting accommodation. The Annexe would make ideal self contained space for young or old.

Included in the sale is a garage, large outbuilding/cattle shed and lean-to which offers a variety of uses.

The large outbuilding can be used for wintering cattle, rearing calves or general storage of farm machinery or other items.
The property at Netheryett Farm is traversed by the River Urr, allowing normal fishing rights for brown trout for this section of the river.
Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the farmhouse, the land and buildings and what they have to offer and the surroundings.

Haugh of Urr is a lovely Galloway village, centrally situated between two small towns and within easy reach of the A75 trunk road. The village has a popular pub which serves meals. The nearest primary school is located in Hardgate, the neighbouring hamlet.
