This semi-detached cottage in the quiet rural hamlet of Sibbaldbie retains many traditional features and whilst it may be in need of some updating it would make a comfortable family home with the bonus of an additional parking area for two or more vehicles. Sibbaldbie is just 4 miles from Lockerbie, which is a thriving market town which lies on both the national road and rail networks, making it ideally-situated for access to the rest of the country. The surrounding countryside offers a varied choice for those seeking country pursuits such as fishing, walking and horse riding, whilst the town itself has an 18-hole golf course, bowling green, ice rink and squash court. The town also offers the usual range of shopping facilities, whilst the county town of Dumfries (some twenty-five minutes away by road) has two cinemas, a Leisure Centre and a wide range of national chain stores and specialist shops. Carlisle is twenty minutes’ drive to the south. Lockerbie has highly-regarded schooling to both primary and secondary level in a new combined-school.
