The House
Pringleton is a delightful detached two storey Victorian house which was built around 1870 as the Manse of the Free Church of Scotland for the local Parish. The property is well positioned on its site of half an acre, occupying a very pleasant South facing situation on the road from Kirkcudbright to Borgue, and enjoying fine views over the surrounding countryside from all aspects.

Today, the former Manse retains its imposing appearance and splendid position, but it has been thoughtfully and tastefully refurbished by the present owners to a very high standard, transforming Pringleton into a beautifully
finished home in walk in condition.

Some elements of the renovation, for example the bathrooms and central heating upgrades, were carried out soon after the owners purchased Pringleton in 2004, but the majority of the improvement works were carried out in 2010 and 2011. These include:

* Double glazed dual turn timber windows throughout, in Victorian sash style
* New front and rear entrance and kitchen doors
* Bespoke painted hardwood kitchen, with granite worktops.
* Engineered oak flooring in the Dining Room, Kitchen, Study, and Rear Hallway.
* Open Fires in the Living and Drawing Rooms in Portugese Limestone.

The Studio
The former stable building which, like the house, is constructed in stone under a slate roof, was completely refurbished in 2010 using reclaimed stone. It now forms an excellent two roomed artist's studio, which could also be used for a variety of other purposes by a new owner.

The Garage and Drive
In 2011, an attached double garage was completed. This garage is finished in reclaimed local stone, with a slate roof. The garage benefits from electrically operated doors and is approached by a new tarmacadam driveway. Remote control gates provide an imposing entrance to the drive.

The Gardens
The gardens surrounding the house have been tastefully re-landscaped, taking full advantage of the existing features and planting, but also incorporating areas of paving and shingle around the house. Ease of maintenance has been a major consideration.

The Surrounding Area

The property is conveniently located about a mile outside Borgue, with Kirkcudbright being only about 4 miles to the North.

The parish of Borgue is agriculturally productive and scenically extremely attractive, incorporating the renowned shoreline round Ross Bay , Brighouse Bay and the Carrick Shore . The principal population was always grouped round the extensive farms and accordingly, the Village of Borgue itself is surprisingly small, dominated by a large and imposing Parish Church . Within
the village there is a well regarded Primary School, traditional village Hotel, Village Hall, and a high quality fish outlet.

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 it was home to the renowned artist, E A Hornel, one of the "Glasgow Boys" and has a long artistic tradition. Kirkcudbright is popular with tourists, attracted by the well renowned galleries and maintains a flourishing colony of artists and craft workers which has led to it being called the "Artists' Town".
