Tenure: Freehold

Poplar Cottage is an attractive 2 storey cottage idyllically situated in the heart of the seaside Village of Kippford. It benefits from not only the stunning panoramic views to the River Urr Estuary which winds out to the Solway Firth but is also benefitted from a large, well maintained garden which is slightly elevated to the rear. This acts as a suntrap whilst also affording views to the Estuary and countryside beyond. Although in need of some updating, this property would be an excellent family home and has easy and convenient access to the Kippford Marina which is a popular venue for the avid sailor. There are many yachts moored on the tidal Estuary of the River Urr which also plays host to an annual Regatta.

Kippford is a popular village on the Solway Coast in south west Scotland. It is well recognized for rolling hills, dramatic coastline and appealing scenery. The area has a good range of sports and outdoor activities with anything from sailing to golf and horse riding being available within close proximity. Kippford is also conveniently located close to Dalbeattie, Castle Douglas and Drumfries which offer a wide range of amenities. Local amenities are available in Kippford itself.

Poplar Cottage is accessed at the front via a paved patio area leading to Entrance Sun Room.

The Garden at Poplar Cottage is deceptively spacious and marvelous. Benefitting from afternoon sun, the garden has a good mix of leisure garden and vegetable plot. The garden ground is split in two sections. The first is mainly laid to lawn with graveled path leading you round perimeter borders laid to a mixture of small flowering plants and more mature shrubbery and bushes. The gravel path's edging echoes the granite façade of the house. Towards the top of the first section, you catch a glimpse of the Estuary and surrounding countryside.

The second section of the garden is laid to lawn with manageable sized vegetable plots for the home-grower. There is a stunning flowering rhododendron bush as well as other colourful flowering shrubs, bushes and plants. Although neighboured, this section of the garden is very private with no one looking on from the rear boundary. The full garden is bounded on one side with drystone dyke and on the other by mature copper beach hedge.
