15 Bank Street is a traditional terraced cottage with attractive dining-kitchen, cosy sitting room with fireplace, shower room and two double bedrooms. The property has been recently renovated throughout and combines the charm of its traditional exterior with beautifully presented interiors.
French doors in the kitchen lead out to the fully enclosed south-facing garden, with its secluded patio, flowering plants and a stone shed, perfect for storing bikes and tools.
Sheena Ramsay of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “This is a much-loved home, and the owners have lavished care and attention on its refurbishment. Although small, the cottage is light and bright and would make an ideal home for a couple or indeed a weekend retreat in this beautiful and tranquil part of Dumfries & Galloway. Wigtown is an idyllic village, with good facilities and a fantastic local community year-round in addition to the popular book festival each September. The property is right in the heart of the village.”
Wigtown has a primary school, church and chapel, post office, supermarket, a number of smaller shops and cafés. Wigtown Bay is the largest Local Nature Reserve in Britain, and is home to a wealth of wildlife, notably birds.
Newton Stewart is the nearest town, with a number of primary schools, a secondary school, a museum, leisure centre, three supermarkets, a good range of shops and a cinema.
The area is well known for outdoor pursuits, sports and wildlife. Kirroughtree Visitor Centre is situated approximately 4 miles from Newton Stewart and is part of the Seven Stanes range of mountain biking trails. The Galloway Forest Park offers superb walking opportunities and is home to Britain’s first Dark Sky Park, where phenomenal views of the night sky can be enjoyed.
Fishing, shooting, golf and equestrian facilities are all readily available throughout the area. Beaches too are popular with wild swimmers, especially at Garlieston and St Medan’s.
Trains to Ayr and Glasgow are available at Stranraer, about 26 miles from Wigtown, and ferries to Northern Ireland sail from nearby Cairnryan. Trains also run from the regional centre of Dumfries, 54 miles to the east.
