Tenure: Freehold

Torr Cottage is situated towards the north end of New Galloway’s High Street with an open outlook across the High Street to the park. Glenkens, scenically, is a delightful area and New Galloway at its heart used to be the smallest “Royal Burgh” in Scotland. That focus, and indication of civic pride, may explain why it has a surprising range of immediately local facilities for such a small town – there is a challenging 9-hole golf course (affording magnificent views), hotels, excellent tea rooms/restaurants, a Post Office and General Store, a modern medical practice, two Churches (Church of Scotland and Scottish Episcopalian), a well regarded Primary School (with a Secondary School five miles away at Dalry), a modern and dynamic Community & Arts Centre at The CatStrand and a whole range of emphasis rural pursuits are easily obtainable nearby, with the on walking, cycling and fishing. Although set in a scenic rural location, many larger centres are easily accessible – Ayr is about 1 hour north, Dumfries about 45 minutes east, Castle Douglas about 20 minutes south and Newton Stewart about 30 minutes west.

Typical of its Royal Burgh status, Torr Cottage was originally built as a public reading room and it is a fine building, granite faced under a slate roof. Now converted tastefully to a spacious dwelling house, it is detached and set in a charming but small and easily managed garden. There is no garage but there is unrestricted street parking and in addition, the property benefits from having unrestricted parking in the adjacent small car park which can be accessed by a pedestrian gate from the rear.

The property has PVC double-glazed window units and oil fired central heating. The present proprietors in recent years have used the property for holiday letting purposes and they have found this very successful. They are entirely content to recommend the existing Letting Agents and provide any information in this regard that a prospective purchaser might find helpful. On that basis, they are prepared to make available most of the furniture and furnishings and equipment within the house. Although ideal as a holiday home, it is of course also ideal as a comfortable and spacious permanent dwelling.
