Something a wee bit different! A great opportunity to purchase a bit of a project situated within its own c1 acre of garden and woodland on the edge of the conservation village of Leadhills. Currently offering 2 public rooms and 2 bedrooms over various split levels 10 Elvanfoot Road is a quirky property, requiring some work, which offers rural living in a property with lots of character and offering a superb choice to enjoy all the stunning surrounding countryside has to offer whilst being part of a village community and a beautiful drive to the main commuting link of the M74.
The main entrance into the property has in more recent years been from the rear into the utility porch, which is a really useful space for coats, boots etc. as well as having space for a washing machine and dryer. The entrance from the front takes you directly into a sitting room, which has in the past been used as a bedroom, and has steps leading you up to the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with modern base units with a ceramic sink, space for a cooker and fridge and has ample space for a small table and chairs. A small hallway to the rear takes you to a split stair which leads you to a double bedroom to the front which has a built-in wardrobe. The other part of the stair leads you to the living room which has a good-sized conservatory and which offers access into the garden.
A hallway off the living room gives access to a further bedroom which has a large walk-in cupboard and to a good-sized bathroom which has a bath, w.c. and wash hand basin and with wet room flooring also has an open multi-jet shower offering access for disabled requirement. There is also access from this hallway to a useful lined loft space.
Externally the garden and woodland are a real asset to the property. There is parking to the front for several vehicles leading to the timber garage and gate to the rear entrance to the property. The garden has in years gone by been lovingly tended with lots of different areas for sitting, vegetables, flowers etc and with some attention could once again offer an idyllic spot surrounded by your own private woodland on two sides. With several outbuildings, workshop, greenhouse etc in various states of repair, with some work this whole area could once again be an absolute dream and your own rural idyll.
