DESCRIPTION

**OFFER AGREED SUBJECT TO CONTRACTS**

The Old Port Store, built around 1820, is a grand old building, standing out amongst the more modern
properties in the small coastal hamlet of Stairhaven, previously known as the Crow’s Nest. The former
grain store is stone built with small windows, typical of the original character of the property. In addition
the second floor double doors, now with a Juliet balcony, reflect a time when supplies would be lowered from a gabled hoist door and transported to boats in the former Stairhaven harbour, before embarking on their onward voyage.
The sitting room is situated on the shore side of the main property where the picture bay window, with
side glass door, frames the view, along with the four skylights, flooding the room with natural light. A
patio area is situated in front of the sitting room ideal for dining al fresco during the warmer months.
Double doors open from the sitting room in to the open plan kitchen dining area, which has an exposed wooden beam, and French doors open to the front of the property. The kitchen was updated in April 2021, the new blue cupboards reflect the coastal theme, very much in keeping with the natural surroundings.
The utility room is entered directly from outside, providing storage for outdoor boots and clothing, as
well an area away from the main house to remove sand from both feet and paws, following strolls along the coastline.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, and double doors opening to
external steps, and a further two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom facilities on the second floor.
The Old Port Store sits under a slate roof, has oil fired central heating powered by a Worcester Heatslave 26/32 boiler, and has double glazing, within timber casements throughout.
There is a right of access between the road and the neighbouring property, Harbour Cottage, as indicated in the Site Plan.

SITUATION
The Old Port Store is situated at the end of a single row of properties in the small coastal hamlet,
Stairhaven. A location with just a small number of properties, all with sea views, only a few hundred yards from the stunning coastline.
The nearest village is Glenluce, 2.8 miles from Stairhaven which has a shop, doctor’s surgery, church, primary school, golf club (County Golf Club) bowling club and small gym.
Stranraer, the nearest town has a secondary school, primary schools, hospital (Galloway Community
Hospital), supermarkets, shops, offices, hotels, restaurants, and a train station. The port of Cairnryan, just over 6 miles from Stranraer, has two ferry operators running passenger and freight services to Northern Ireland.
This area of south west Scotland is home to some beautiful scenery, with numerous coastal villages
around Luce Bay, and the nearby Galloway Forest Park offers walks and mountain bike trails, and is part of the UK’s first Dark Sky Park, giving it breathtaking views of the night sky.
