DESCRIPTION
A beautiful Country House believed to have been constructed in the mid 1800s set in private grounds with outbuildings and 2 bed detached cottage, just a short distance from the popular harbour town of Kirkcudbright. Under the current owner Mansewood has seen significant improvements including: Replacement boiler, kitchen replaced, double glazing installed, fully re-roofed, chimney stacks re-built, oil tank replaced, drainage works to the grounds. In 2018 the cottage was fully refurbished and has served as a residential let, now successfully run as an Air BnB. The house has been meticulously maintained over the years, and is an excellent example of its type, with traditional Georgian and Victorian layout to the ground and first floors, with principle rooms to the front south facing elevation. Reception space and bedrooms are all generously sized and provide great flexibility for family living and entertaining space. The property benefits from oil fired central heating with traditional fireplaces in the majority of bedrooms and each of the principal reception rooms benefit from wood burning stoves. Mansewood Cottage offers great earning potential from residential or holiday letting (currently running with a 5 star rating) or alternatively provides excellent additional accommodation for multi-generational living.
