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
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 ..

Lovely house for family in lovely quiet area
Large house with unusual layout - super for a holiday house. A large enclosed garden.
NB no wifi (nor in nearby hotel most of the time) but good 4G reception in rooms at the front of the house.
Wonderful playroom and toys and dressing up etc for kids- we had 4 ages 9,5,4 and 2.
Nearby is a hotel with reasonable menu, a farm park (pay) with lots of activities, a splendid play ground, forest walks etc. There is no nearby bike hire anymore and in the end we did not bother. Near enough Dumfries and other places for wet weather activities. The kids went to Dino World- and it was really good -better than expected.
Would recommend this house for extended families
Family get together
Lovely property in a great location, it was ideal for our family’s get together. Plenty of space inside , great garden , forest just down the lane (great for the dogs) ,and a short drive to some lovely beaches. Good time had by all, we hope to return!
Your time at overbells was most welcome
I noted that you all really found the property suited to your needs
I appreciate the comments you made and of course taking that time
We hope soon to see you all back and the dogs at Overbells
Friendly welcome, beautiful house and stunning scenery. Local hotel has a great bar and does lovely food. The close proximity to such an amazing woodland was great for the dogs. We didn’t want to leave.
A beautiful spacious property with a homely feel.
Well equipped and perfect for our groups needs. Very easy to make ourselves at home in Over Bells, thank you.
