About Mr Donald Thorburn

Hi

I have been interested in properties for many years .

This property is one I had built many years ago .

Designed specifically for the location .

I am local to this area although have travelled a lot .

Mr Donald Thorburn purchased this villa in 2000

Why Mr Donald Thorburn chose Dumfries & Galloway

This is just a superb property

It's spread out so lends itself well to the extended family .

Great views

Great home

What makes this villa unique

This property was my home for about 8 years .

It has been set up ,furnished and decorated as you would expect a home .

It is certainly is not a bland holiday let or cottage .

I am sure you will enjoy staying here and the lovely walks around the Forrest .

Although Overbells is next to mabie forest it is not in the forest ,and in this situation the home has panoramic views towards Dumfries and over towards the Solway estuary .

The property is about three minutes walk along a private road to the great outdoors .

You will enjoy it ..

Mabie is situated close to the solway coast and the historic town of Dumfries,and is an excellent base for exploring the visitor attractions that are on offer.

A very well run large farm park is also 5mins away,great fun for all the family with tea room ,slides,go -karts animal paddocks and much more see the second link below. Beaches of the solway coast and a championship course are 15mins drive away. The town of Dumfries is a 10 min drive with some quality and family restaunts and shops easily accessable.
