This granite and whinstone property retains many of its historic features, including the water wheel and workings in the lower ground floor, as well as two cast iron dyeing vats.
Of particular interest is the stylish way the original water wheel has been incorporated as a design feature in the split-level lower ground floor space. Currently used as a gym, the generous area could lend itself to a variety of uses.
The spacious triple aspect sitting room/dining room with wood burning stove and oak flooring is a delightful room to enjoy the stunning views over Queen Mary’s bridge and the burn behind and garden to the front.
In 2016 a second reception room with wood burning stove was added above the existing garage. A glass sliding door opens to the balcony providing a unique vantage point to watch the Penkiln Burn and abundant wildlife on your doorstep.
Sheena Ramsay, handling the sale for Galbraith, said: “Waulkmill is a truly unique property offering many quirky features. With three spacious bedrooms and cosy reception rooms to enjoy the far reaching views, it is the perfect lifestyle move. The scenic countryside location in beautiful Galloway is bound to appeal to any outdoor enthusiast.”
The striking grounds are well maintained and offer the opportunity for those keen to become more sustainable with a polytunnel, greenhouse and fenced vegetable garden. In addition, there is a raised wooden tree house, three log stores and the ruins of a former mill built in the 1600’s stand at the end of the garden.
Waulkmill is situated in Minnigaff, one mile from Newton Stewart, in an idyllic setting overlooking the Penkiln Burn and Queen Mary’s Bridge. Newton Stewart is known as the Gateway to the Galloway Hills.
