11 Church Street is situated close to Kirkcowan Primary School and Church, in the heart of the village. The front of the property overlooks the play park, a sizeable area of grass with play equipment. Kirkcowan also has a shop and Post Office, garage, hotel and good public transport, the bus stop is just a few minutes’ walk from the front door. Newton Stewart offers a wider range of shops and offices, including a leisure centre, secondary school and two supermarkets. Wigtown, Scotland’s Book Town, holds the annual Wigtown Book Festival, and is home to many bookshops and cafes, with the famous Bladnoch Distillery located just outside the town.
11 Church Street has been completely refurbished to provide a tasteful, modern and cosy home. The double aspect open plan Kitchen/Sitting Room makes the most of the space available, allowing space for a dining room table and a fitted cupboard below the stairs takes care of outdoor clothing and footwear. A five ring gas hob, Lamona electric oven and integrated microwave provide excellent cooking facilities within a compact space, there is also an integrated dishwasher and fridge. The kitchen also benefits from a solid wooden work top and Belfast style sink. A two year old Worcester boiler, still under warranty, powers the oil fired central heating, which has a mixture of vertical and horizontal radiators. Wood burning stoves in the Sitting Room and ground floor bedroom also provide heat and create an ambiance in both rooms.
The first floor bedroom is the full length of the property, this could easily be divided into two separate rooms creating a third bedroom. Head room is restricted with the full combe ceilings, the height in the centre of the room is 1.87m, however the area in front of the dormer windows has an increased height of 2m.
This property would be ideal for a couple or small family, especially first time buyers looking to set up home in a quiet rural village within walking distance of the shop, primary school and park.
OUTBUILDING (7.5m x 3.15m)
Of stone construction with a pitched tin roof. The outbuilding has both double doors and a separate single door opening into to a large open space. The outbuilding has power, water and a connection to mains oil, this building could be converted to a living space, with appropriate planning consents. The outbuilding currently houses the washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge freezer.
A patio area just outside the back door provides a private space to dine al fresco in the privacy of your own back garden. A large area of lawn, lined with borders, including a wildflower border and vegetable patch complete the garden, a stone dyke provides the boundary. A second patio area is situated behind the outbuilding, this would be an ideal place to situate a hot tub, and bamboo has been planted to enhance the privacy in this area. Mature shrubs and trees enrich the garden, providing both shelter and structure to the garden. The polytunnel, which has successfully grown a range of fruit and vegetables, will remain in the garden.
