The Property
Set in rolling hills above the picturesque village of Portpatrick, overlooking the Irish Sea to the Mountains of Mourne, Ar-Tigh and The Bothy are a perfect escape from urban living.

Offered between two dwellings, Ar-Tigh features on one level, lounge, 2 double bedrooms, kitchen / diner and bathroom. The Bothy also on one level, offers full accessible living, including living /kitchen/dining area, two bedrooms and walk-in shower room. The Bothy was built for our client's elderly father and features ramps , wide sliding internal doors and ample hand-holds.

A ground source heat pump provides central heating for both properties. The Bothy has under floor heating throughout while it is radiators and partial underfloor heating in Ar-Tigh. Ar-Tigh is also fitted with photo voltaic panels, which are contracted to the original highest tariff. The ground source heat pump and the PV panels make for very economical running of the two dwellings.

Externally ample parking is provided with mature, easily maintained, semi-tropical gardens which are a haven for red squirrels and a wide range of birds. . There is a large greenhouse with hydroponic system and wooden summer house with power and water adjacent to Ar-Tigh. A shed with power is adjacent to The Bothy. There is a vegetable garden with raised beds. Both Ar-Tigh and The Bothy have private patios
that are not overlooked.

Ar-Tigh and The Bothy: two quite different properties but together they afford many possibilities for those making a lifestyle move and for those who would wish to combine a work element while at the same time having a superb living space and
surroundings to enjoy. First and foremost the property would be ideal for an extended family. Looking at a business dynamic an obvious possibility would be as a holiday let, using one or other or both of the cottages for this purpose. Alternatively if one required a base to form an office or studio the properties offer great potential.

Local Area
The property is located around 2 miles from the village of Portpatrick, 8 miles to Stranraer, 60 miles to Ayr, 63 miles to Prestwick Airport, 80 miles to Dumfries, and 114 miles to Carlisle. Portpatrick is a pretty harbour village of pastel-coloured houses, set around a small bay with cliffs forming the backdrop. A former port for transportation to and from Northern Ireland, Portpatrick is now a peaceful holiday resort. Locally a school can be found and a range of independent shops, alongside two golf courses. In nearby Stranraer major supermarkets, banks, shop and a railway link can be found.
