Mayfield is a charming and characterful property, located in the heart of the rural village of New Galloway. Mayfield is formerly (and still locally known as) the old Police Station but now serves as a spacious family home with living accommodation on ground and first floor level. The current owners have recently finished renovating and redecorating the property including the re-instatement of the former police cell as a W.C. at ground floor level. As well as an interesting
history to boast, the property has plenty of traditional features such as high ceilings, staircase, cornicing, picture rails, deep skirting and also, timber framed, single glazed sash and case style windows which benefit from a Ventrolla sliding sash and case draught proofing system. In excellent decorative order throughout, the internal accommodation is complemented beautifully by a spacious private garden to the rear with additional garden ground to the side and front of the property. This property is well worth viewing and would serve ideally as an impressive family
home or indeed, those looking for an additional home to base themselves in the
scenic Glenkens area.

New Galloway itself is actually labelled as a town, formerly being Scotland's smallest Royal Burgh. Although having a small population, it has a good community feel and there is a range of facilities in the village including a modern doctors' surgery, primary school (with secondary at Dalry), nine hole golf course, hotels and restaurants, shop and post office and the popular community and arts venue at the Catstrand. Surrounded by the wider Glenkens area, New Galloway is well placed for those interested in rural pursuits such as walking, fishing, bird watching, biking and sailing. Situated just north of Loch Ken, there are a number of water
pursuits on your doorstep with the Galloway Sailing Centre and Loch Ken Water Ski School being based on the east banks of the Ken. You are spoilt for choice for scenery and points of interest with Mayfield and New Galloway being on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park and within the Galloway Dark Sky Park and Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere. New Galloway has plenty of public transport links and is easily accessible to and from the larger towns surrounding.

Newton Stewart is to the west, Ayr to the north, Dumfries to the east and the vibrant 'Food Town' of Castle Douglas to the south.
