Hemprigs House will be auctioned off in Glasgow tonight

ONE of the finest manor houses in the north is set to go under the hammer
in Glasgow tonight.
Historical Hempriggs House, a former residential home for the elderly, has an asking price in excess of 250,000.
It has 20 bedrooms, three public rooms and a large kitchen, and retains many of its original features.
The lot included two parcels of rough land with shooting rights to the west and fishing rights on Loch Hempriggs and a former coach house and cottage. There are also kennels stables and a double garage.
B-listed Hempriggs House was purchased by an English woman after its residential use was terminated but was never occupied or developed. It has been put on the market by creditors and is being sold by Future Property Auctions.
The property dates back to the 17th century when owners, the Dunbar family welcomed James Graham, the Marquis of Montrose who was then the King’s Lt, General for the North.
