Property description

Rosebank is a lovely and surprisingly spacious three bedroomed family home. The original cottage was extended many years ago, and the large bright south facing main living room at the rear of the house was added. With good sized bedroom and main bathroom situated on the ground floor, it would be possible to live on one level if desired. Rosebank enjoys two further good sized bedrooms, with the master bedroom on the first floor enjoying en-suite facilities.

Rosebank is situated on the corner of Main Street and Captain's Brae, and benefits from a good sized tarmacked area to the rear providing extensive off road parking. From here, the basement (which runs under the whole of the house) can be accessed, and would lend itself to a wide variety of uses, including as an artist's studio, workshop, or for storage of gardening items, sports equipment, motorcycles and pushbikes.

Whilst most purchasers will be content with Rosebank the way it is, the following potential changes may be of interest to some:

A) It is believed that the wall between the kitchen and the main living room is a stud partition wall and could be easily removed if desired, to create a living area open plan between the kitchen and the remainder of the living area.

B) It is thought that the garden may be large enough for a building plot to be formed in the lower part of the garden, and this could be accessed directly from Captain's Brae. The sellers have not made enquiries of the planning authorities as to the prospect of obtaining planning permission, and it is suggested that if this is of interest to potential purchasers, they might like to do so, or they may like to instruct their own planning consultant to provide advice.

C) Whilst the basement is a most useful space at present, there may be the potential to form additional living accommodation in the basement. Again, if this is of interest, the purchasers should seek their own advice from an architect, builder, or other suitable expert.

Rosebank benefits from gas central heating via a modern efficient condensing boiler (the boiler has a British Gas Contract and is serviced annually), radiators with thermostatic controls, and uPVC double glazing. All carpets and other fitted floor coverings together with all curtains and other window coverings are included in the sale. Other items may be available by separate negotiation also.

Twynholm is an active community benefiting from a Primary School, Village Shop, Garage, and 2 Pubs/Hotels. There are many community activities organized in the nearby Village Hall.

Further facilities are available in Kirkcudbright approximately 3½ miles away, which is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. 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, ea Hornel, one of the "Glasgow Boys".

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". 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 its own jazz festival and tattoo.

The South West of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline with a good range of outdoor activities easily available for those interested in hill walking, bird watching, fishing, mountain biking, water sports and of course golf. The Solway is also a popular yachting destination.


There is a small front garden finished with gravel and with a paved path leading to the front door. This is enclosed by a drystone dyke to part and well established hedge to the other part. The rear garden can be accessed from Captain's Brae. There is an extensive tarmacadam parking area immediately behind the house, large enough for three or four cars, and steps lead up from here to the rear door.

There is also a gate from the parking area through to the rear garden, which has been very well landscaped and has a most attractive mix of paths, areas of lawn, and bedding areas with well-established plants. It is thought that the rear garden may be large enough for part of it to be used as a separate building plot.
