Beautifully located upon the hillside overlooking the rooftops of Kirkcudbright and the Dee Estuary beyond, this architecturally designed home could offer a very large family home. Alternatively, there is already a successful bed and breakfast business being run from the property, offering a new home and lifestyle for a family or couple.

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, EA Hornel, one of the "Glasgow Boys". This tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers which has led to Kirkcudbright being named the "Artists' Town".

Kirkcudbright enjoys a wide variety of mainly family-owned shops, pubs, hotels and restaurants, whilst offering a wide range of facilities, including its own golf course, marina, swimming pool and an active summer festivities programme, including a jazz festival and tattoo.

With private gardens and plenty of space for entertaining or relaxing, this property offers a unique opportunity and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
