Tenure: FreeholdBalmaclellan as a village is quietly situated near the A713 road that leads from Castle Douglas to Ayr. Turn off east at the Kenbridge Hotel, signposted Corsock/Dumfries and essentially the next three exits left, give access to Balmaclellan. The village is pleasant, with an excellently stocked village shop carrying fresh meats and a cash point, well-used Village Hall, renowned “Clogger” and an attractive Church yard containing the commemorative statue to “Old Mortality”.
The mobile post office calls three times per week and there is a mobile library service, and weekly fish van. There are regular buses and schools are located nearby in New Galloway & Dalry.
Knocknon is a surprising cottage. From the outside it looks very traditional, in local whinstone under a slate roof, but from the rear, it has fine views, initially over the beautiful garden grounds of the adjacent property, and then south to the open farmlands and hills beyond. The cottage is spacious and at ground floor level, some walls have been restored to the natural stone, which is an attractive feature. Extensively refurbished by the current proprietors to a high standard and is in excellent decorative order throughout with quality fitments, carpets and décor. Ideally suited as a “lock and leave” holiday bolt-hole in the heart of the Glenkens.
There is no very extensive garden but to the rear, there is a small gravelled patio garden with plenty of room for sitting out, or for summer dining and the house would make an ideal low maintenance permanent or holiday home. The outlook to the front is pleasant, since essentially the street is wide here and in the main the cottage looks onto the Church and Church yard opposite.
