Airntully is a two storey 1950s build detached property which occupies a peaceful rural location just a short distance from Kirkcudbright. Sitting within about an acre of garden grounds with separate paddock and a range of outbuildings including 3 loose boxes, tack room, double garage and workshop, Airntully provides an attractive offering. Although now in need of some modernisation, the property offers generous reception space with large living/drawing room and separate dining room as well as a sociable kitchen/dining space with additional snug off. Dependent on how the buyer might utilise the space, there are up to 5 bedrooms, one of which is en suite. Deceptively spacious, yet flexible family accommodation space. The property further benefits from being fully double glazed with oil fired central heating. Airntully also caters for the equestrian buyer with the existing outbuildings and paddock opposite. The paddock has previously been used by the current owners for pony grazing.
