Property description

Moatwell occupies a prime position overlooking the River Dee in the “Old” High Street, and is a delightful category B listed Townhouse which dates back to at least the late 18th century in its present form. It is one of only two houses in the street to have direct estuary frontage. The house and garden have recently undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment and provide a spacious and comfortable family home in an enviable and much sought after location. The house retains many original features including sash windows and working shutters to many of the rooms, fireplaces and ornate plasterwork. The house has been re-roofed, re-wired and re-plumbed and kitchen and bathrooms have been replaced.

There is a large adjoining garage with access to the street and garden, and a vaulted store below.

The house is arranged over 3 floors, with the ground floor having the principal living space. The Drawing Room and the Kitchen both have exceptional views over the garden and estuary.

The floor plan shows the layout of the house with room dimensions.


The peaceful enclosed private garden at Moatwell is situated to the west of the house, and the sea wall forms the boundary.

Garden Room which sits overlooking the garden and the estuary has also been renovated. It has been fully insulated and has large double glazed doors and windows, fibre broadband and a woodburning stove. The tranquil riverside setting makes this an ideal all year round artist’s studio or home office.

Immediately adjacent and down from the kitchen door:

• Garden Store
• Tool Store
• Potting shed
• Garden WC

Doors to the High Street and to the garden. Below the garage, with separate access, there is a stone vaulted store and a path leading back to the High Street. The Garage houses the boiler room, with pressurised hot water storage and 2x zoned boiler heating the lower ground and upper floors.

Kirkcudbright, Scotland’s Artists Town, sits beside the estuary of the River Dee on the coast of the Solway Firth.

The town provides a range of services including: supermarkets, independent specialist shops and galleries, a primary and secondary school, health centre, tennis, sailing and golf clubs as well as many other amenities. The harbour is a main feature in the centre of the town, and there are delightful riverside walks as well as a renowned “blue-flag” marina providing excellent sailing and motor boat facilities.
