Craigrannoch occupies a commanding and spacious plot with impressive views towards the Urr Estuary and beyond. The rooms are generous, with two large reception rooms and five bedrooms, not including the detached one bedroom annexe accommodation to the rear. The kitchen has an oil fired Rayburn stove. Craigrannoch has been with the current owners since 1982 and has been used by the family and for holiday lets during that time. Considering its location it lends well to Holiday Let but equally could provide a stunning family home with some required modernisation. The property is double glazed predominantly with metal framed glazing units and served with partial electric storage heating. The property was most recently extended to provide a spacious bedroom/wet room to the ground floor. Opportunities to purchase properties of this size, location and plot size are rare in the popular village of Rockcliffe.

Craigrannoch sits in an elevated position in the popular and quaint Victorian seaside village of Rockcliffe. 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 and can also be reached from Rockcliffe by a coastal walk) has a marina, safe moorings, and a sailing club. Colvend village has a Primary School, Village Hall with regular events including a monthly Farmers Market, Village Shop and a Church. There is a broader range of shops, schools and services in both Dalbeattie and Castle Douglas.
Colvend golf course is situated nearby whilst the championship course of Southerness is only eight miles to the east. There is also a local 9 hole par 3 golf course at Craigieknowes, useful for improving the short game, or just starting out. The area is also perfect for cycling along the quiet country roads as well as mountain biking in the nearby forest parks forming part of the nationally renowned Seven Stanes routes. It is also an idyllic location for walkers with numerous coastal walks, and hill walking in the nearby Galloway Hills and Forest.
Communications to the area are very good. There are railway stations in Dumfries and Lockerbie and the M74 motorway network can be reached in about 45 minutes by road. There are regular flights to other parts of the UK, Ireland and continental Europe from Prestwick Airport, which is about 1.5 hours’ drive north, and both Edinburgh and Glasgow can be reached in around 2 hours.
