Wellwood is a traditional granite villa, of the mid-Victorian era, sitting in a delightful elevated position within the village of New Galloway. Although situated on the main street, there is separate vehicular access to the rear and garage via a shared lane which runs from beside the neighbouring property. The house is fairly substantial in size, and has been added to with the construction of a dining room which leads to the garden. This contributes to a spacious reception area, leading as it does from the sitting room, which has been opened up to run the entire depth of the original house, making it ideal for entertaining.
Whilst perfectly liveable as it stands, the property would perhaps benefit from a degree of modernisation. There is already almost full double glazing, with only one or two skylights single glazed, along with the rear porch. The windows to the front elevation have been fitted in sash and case, in keeping with the age and design of the house. A two oven Aga is the centre piece of the existing kitchen, and could easily remain in situ in a re-design. A large wet room has been installed on the ground floor.
The garden is a good size, and is laid out with mature lawns, beds, shrubs, paths and patio. There is a timber framed garage and two sheds by the vehicular access, and attached stone built stores and boiler room to the rear of the house.
New Galloway is a peaceful village located at the northern end of Loch Ken. Amenities located within the village include a primary school, The CatStrand Community and Arts Centre, which provides film screenings, live music, workshops and community events, Glenkens Medical Practice, a hotel, tea-rooms and gift shop, as well as a village shop, and a post office. Both primary and secondary schools can be found in the nearby village of Dalry (about 3 miles) as well as a shop, 2 hotels and a garage
