The property is situated in the village of Rockcliffe which has a sheltered beach, with beautiful views over the Solway Coast to Cumbria. Nearby Kippford (about three miles away) is a picturesque traditional coastal village with a marina and sailing club.
Rebecca Reed of Galbraith, who is handling the sale of the property, said: “This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a charming family home with lovely mature gardens, within walking distance of the coast. This part of Dumfries & Galloway combines the beauty of the sea with forest and hill scenery and is renowned for walking, water sports and mountain biking. The setting is absolutely wonderful and the purchasers will have all the beauty of Dumfries & Galloway on their doorstep.”
There are two large double bedrooms on the ground floor while a further double bedroom, with en-suite shower room and office space, which could be converted to a walk in wardrobe, is on the first floor. The open plan kitchen with dining area opens to a patio with views of the sea. The living room also has coastal views and there is a multi-fuel stove to keep the room cosy in the colder months. There is also a dining room, a sun room and plenty of outdoor space for entertaining.
The mature gardens have extensive lawns, a large pond with fountain, patio areas, a green house and pergola. The gardens have been tenderly cared for over the years and offer an abundance of flowers including various varieties of roses.
The plot extends to 0.65 acres and there are spectacular views out to the Rough Firth, Rough Island (a bird sanctuary) and the Solway Firth beyond. The pool does require some remedial works to be carried out and is currently not fully operational. There is also a detached double garage with a utility room and coal house.
Rockcliffe boasts a tearoom/gallery, as well as a sheltered beach, with beautiful views over the Solway Coast to Cumbria. From the beach Rough Island bird sanctuary can be reached on foot at low tide via a causeway. Nearby Kippford (only a few miles by road) can also be reached from Rockcliffe by a coastal walk, has a marina, safe moorings, and a sailing club. Colvend village has a good village shop, post office and primary school, whilst there is a broader range of shops, schools and services in both Dalbeattie and Castle Douglas.
