Full description

At one time Kirkcudbright consisted of the High Street and the closes running off. Castle Street was one of the first streets built as the town expanded, and 49 is situated in what is probably the oldest part of Castle Street.

The property has real character, enhanced by the original features, such as the solid panelled wooden doors, cornicing, ceiling roses, and stripped wooden floors.

The property also benefits from gas central heating throughout with thermostatic controls to radiators, and good quality double glazed sash and case windows to the first floor rooms benefit the energy efficiency of these rooms.

There is no garden to the property, which for those seeking a holiday home is often an advantage.
