Housesimple is pleased to present The Torrs; a country home of some elegance and comfort.

Overlooking the Solway Firth with landscaped gardens extending to approx 0.75 of an acre, the house stands on an elevated site with outstanding views over the sea and surrounding countryside.

Formerly the residence of Sir Thomas McAlpine, the house was converted from a cottage in 1967. The present owner has further modernised and updated the property to a high standard. Portling is a small hamlet situated one mile from Colvend with its primary school shop and café. The area boasts a mild climate and offers a wide range of country pursuits including sailing, horse riding, mountain biking, fishing, shooting and golf with numerous coastal and forest walks. A perfect place for an early and relaxing retirement.

The property benefits from new pvc double glazed windows and doors, a new kitchen with patio doors to the garden. New oil fired boiler and mains pressure hot water system. Main bathroom completely renewed this year. Also features a new, fully fitted kitchen with modern appliances including dishwasher, double oven, microwave, wine cooler and oil fired four oven Aga.

Viewing highly recommended.
