Brooklyn, located at The Stell on the outskirts of Kirkcudbright in a desirable and much sought after location, is a very well appointed two storey villa built by a highly regarded local builder in or about 1950 and extensively renovated and upgraded by the present seller in 1985/86.
Internally, the house is beautifully proportioned and well laid out, with reception rooms situated off a spacious hall. The dining room (originally the integral garage) is a particular feature, south facing, with a barrel vaulted ceiling, full height double glazed windows and patio doors to a paved patio. The bedroom accommodation is on the first floor, laid out off a spacious landing. The master bedroom is beautifully light and enjoys excellent views over the River Dee.
Kirkcudbright 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". This tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers and has led to Kirkcudbright being named "The Artists' Town".

The south west of Scotland is a distinctly rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities, with excellent opportunities for golf, shooting and fishing. The Solway is also a popular yachting destination and Kirkcudbright has improved berthing facilities.
