Property Description

This spectacularly situated former quarryman’s house on Wigtown Bay in South West Scotland represents a wonderful and indeed rare opportunity to create a beautiful two-bedroom home of approximately 1500 square feet with wonderful southerly and westerly views.

Brinkworth, an internationally renowned design consultancy, have completed the outstanding plans.
The original planning permission has lapsed however the current owner has resubmitted the application which involves restoring and extending the existing house, a handsome 19th century two storey building constructed from local stone. The proposed accommodation includes a spacious kitchen/dining room, separate living room with full height glazing to the south, master bedroom, bathroom, shower room and second bedroom with sliding glass doors taking in the fantastic views.

Potential purchasers should note many of the major works, such as the installation of water and electricity have already been completed.

The property can be found on a stunning coastal stretch of Dumfries and Galloway. To the north is the Galloway Forest Park, Britain’s largest forest park, and what is described as ‘three hundred miles of wild beauty’. Nearby towns include the popular Kircudbright, Wigtown (the ‘town of books’) and Newton Stewart. The nearest larger town is Carlisle which runs rail services to London in under 3.5 hours. Driving time to Glasgow is around 1.5 hours and Edinburgh around 2 hours. In addition, the area is well-known for its food and drinks, particularly whisky distillers, and renowned smokehouses.
The coastal stretch is an area of outstanding natural beauty and legend has it that Queen Victoria asked Lord Carlisle what the most beautiful area in her kingdom was and he said, “Ma’am, this would be the road from Kirkcudbright to Newton Stewart’ and she then enquired what was the second most beautiful part, he said ‘this would be the road from Newton Stewart to Kirkcudbright’.
