Property description

An imaginative conversion of a former village school building to form a well-appointed bright and airy family home within a Galloway village setting. The property benefits from oil fired heating, uPVC double glazing, magnificent open plan great room, multi fuel stove, modern kitchen and bathrooms and with magnificent outlook over historic Dundrennan Abbey. The property must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

The former village school of stone under a slate roof which has been imaginatively and painstakingly converted to form a stunning family home. Magnificent views overlooking the historic remains of Dundrennan Abbey. Dundrennan itself lies on the scenic Solway coastal route within the heart of Galloway some 6 miles from Kirkcudbright. The remains of neighbouring Dundrennan Abbey, now in the care of Historic Scotland, is reputed to be where Mary, Queen of Scots spent her last night on Scottish soil. The property has been painstakingly converted and refurnished by the current proprietor to form an absolutely stunning family home which really has to be viewed to be fully appreciated.
The Southwest of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers and, of course, golf. The Solway is a popular destination and the nearby harbour town of Kirkcudbright has improved berthing facilities.
Nearby Kirkcudbright 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, EA Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys” who lived in Broughton House which is now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. The town itself has a good range of local shops and professional services as well as primary and secondary schools.
