Full description

A wonderful detached Townhouse property in the heart of Kirkcudbright. 18 Castle Street was constructed some 15 years ago in a vacant plot forming the end of the garden from Custom House on the High Street. The house is immaculately presented and the main rooms have elegant proportions which could offer a variety of choice in layout options over the two floors, including a separate “Granny Annexe”. In addition the owner specified a lift to be built into the house to cater for accessibility in later years which is capable of two persons and a wheelchair.

The building was sympathetically finished to ensure it was in keeping with the area, with sliding timber framed sash and case double glazed windows, sandstone finished quoins, surrounds and lintels, arched windows to side and a striking arched front entrance door. This continues internally with the property tastefully decorated to a high standard. The finish is further complimented by the principal rooms having a combination of cornicing, dado or picture rails in keeping with the older large townhouses. The house is immaculately presented and the main rooms have elegant proportions which could offer a variety of choice in layout options over the two floors, including a separate “Granny Annexe”. In addition the owner specified a lift to be built into the house to cater for accessibility in later years which is capable of two persons and a wheelchair.

The harbour town of Kirkcudbright, also known as Scotland’s Artists’ Town, is very popular with tourists, particularly in the summer months with a range of festivities and events including an annual Arts and Crafts Trail, Jazz festival, and a popular farmers market which runs throughout the year. The town provides a range of services including two small supermarkets and individual specialist shops, parish church, museum, library, doctor’s surgery, optician, bank, a cottage hospital, two veterinary practices, swimming pool, tennis court, bowling green, as well as a primary and secondary school. The harbour is a main feature in the centre of the town, and there are delightful river sidewalks as well as a renowned ‘blue-flag’ marina providing excellent sailing facilities. The nearby market town of Castle Douglas also has a good range of shops, and other services, and is designated Dumfries and Galloway’s Food Town. The regional capital of Dumfries, about 28 miles distant, offers a wider range of shops, retail outlets and services including the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, cinema, and the Crichton Campus providing further education courses, and railway station.

The Southwest of Scotland is well known for its mild climate, attractive unspoilt countryside and abundance and diversity of its recreational and sporting pursuits, such as shooting, stalking, as well as trout and salmon fishing on the region’s numerous rivers and lochs. A wide variety of beaches, coastal paths and beautiful walks are within easy reach of the property. There are water sports and sailing on nearby Loch Ken as well as on the Solway, along with excellent hill walking in the nearby Galloway Hills and cycling along some of the numerous cycle routes, as well as a nationally renowned network of mountain biking routes in the hills and forest parks making up the Seven Stanes centres. The Galloway Forest Park well known for its beauty and tranquillity is also recognised as Britain’s first Dark Sky Park, and provides astronomers phenomenal views of the stars with a newly opened Observatory. For golf enthusiasts there is an 18 hole course in the town as well as several courses within a short driving distance, and the Championship course at Southerness on the picturesque Solway Coast.

Communications to the area are very good, with a regular daily bus service from the town, and railway stations in both Dumfries and Lockerbie. The M74 motorway is about 51 miles distant allowing easy access north and south. Regular flights to parts of the UK and Ireland as well as continental Europe depart from Prestwick Airport, which is 65 miles to the north. Both Glasgow and Edinburgh with their international airports are 97 and 107 miles respectively. A daily ferry service to Northern Ireland operates with Stenna Link from Cairnryan 52 miles to the west, close to Stranraer.
