Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Mains of Twynholm Cottage enjoys an excellent location, surrounded by pasture, it has uninterrupted views to the Cumbrian Hills and no neighbours in close proximity. Whilst convenient for the A75, it is far enough away from the road to be free of traffic noise. The only vehicles passing the cottage itself are those going to and from the farm at the end of the farm road.

The Cottage itself benefits from uPVC Double Glazing installed in around 2012 and oil-fired central heating. There is a wood burning stove in the sitting room, which is a lovely bright room with two windows.

The Cottage is situated in grounds extending to approximately one acre, most of which is easily maintained, but also offers real opportunity for the keen gardener.

Whilst many purchasers will find the present accommodation suitable for their needs, the present owner has applied for planning permission to extend the property. Further details are available on request. At the time of preparing these particulars the outcome of the application is pending.
Twynholm is an active and friendly community with the village hall hosting many popular events. There are very good amenities for a village of this size including a primary school, village shop, garage, and two hotels.

The cottage is very convenient for Kirkcudbright which is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. The town itself is of historic and architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by Artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned artist, E.A. Hornel, one of the "Glasgow Boys" who lived in nearby Broughton House, now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. Artistic tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers which has led to Kirkcudbright being named the "Artists Town".

The south-west of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers and of course golf. The Solway is also a popular yachting destination and Scotland's only Blue Flag Marina is only a short walk away.
