Maughold sits approximately one mile west of the harbour village of Port William, near Newton Stewart. Port William has its own primary school, shops, restaurant, doctors surgery, tea room, library and hairdressers. There is a great community spirit within the village and a carnival week is held there annually. The community spirit is extended into the local volunteers who man the Port William Inshore Rescue Boat, funded by the community, a vital asset in a fishing village and popular holiday destination.
Newton Stewart, approximately 19 miles north east offers a wider range of shops and offices, including a leisure centre, secondary school and two supermarkets. Wigtown, Scotlands Book Town, around 12 miles north east, holds the annual Wigtown Book Festival, and is home to many bookshops and cafes, with the famous Bladnoch Distillery located just outside the town.
Maughold, a spacious three bedroom bungalow, sits in an elevated position beside Low Killantrae Farm. The property has spectacular views over surrounding farmland, Luce Bay and on a clear day the Mull of Galloway peninsula and the Isle of Man which can be seen from the Living Room, Conservatory and two main bedrooms. The Master Bedroom has French Doors opening out on to a patio, making both the Conservatory and Master Bedroom ideal places to watch the sun rise and set over Luce Bay. Natural light flows in to Maughold illuminating the large sea facing rooms. The property is double glazed throughout and an oil fired Aga provides a continuous supply of hot water. Oil fired central heating powered by a new external Worcester boiler, plus underfloor heating in both the conservatory and bathroom keep the property efficient and cosy.
The holiday cottage, currently let through a holiday letting agency, is perfect for a short stay by the sea. A Kitchen/Dining/Living area, Bedroom and Shower Room provide a base for a break in the country. A decking area has recently been added to the rear of the property, suitable for locating a hot tub. The byre provides outside storage space, but it was previously used to house livestock and many of the original features remain. The byre could be converted to additional accommodation or a workshop, subject to planning consent.
