DESCRIPTION
Lodge Wood Cottage provides a very attractive lifestyle property in a peaceful rural location. The property whilst remaining traditional in appearance is complimented by modern technologies such as Solar panels and ground source heating, the solar panels provide hot water with the Heat pump using water from the borehole. Timber window frames and the larch clad dormer windows maintain that traditional feel and compliments the property beautifully within its woodland setting. The property further benefits from underfloor heating throughout, and is built to modern building standards ensuring the beneficial efficiency of the property. (Lodge Wood Cottage featured in the Energy Savings Trust Green Homes Network Open Day, September 2012.) Built by local builders, the design and layout was heavily influenced by the current owner, who completed the property in 2013.

SITUATION
Lodge Wood Cottage occupies a beautiful rural location yet within easy reach of the nearby amenities. The nearby town of Dalbeattie (about 6 miles) has a useful range of shops, cafes, hotels, restaurants, primary and secondary schools, health centre, solicitors, and a park. The smaller village of Colvend, just 6.9 miles along the A710, is home to an excellent village store, cafe, an 18-hole parkland golf course, and the highest-rated primary school along the Solway Coast. Kippford is perennially popular, and features two inns serving meals and local ales, the Solway Sailing Club, a cafe/gift shop, the village hall, an RNLI station, golf course with tea room, and a pottery. Castle Douglas, a market town known as Dumfries and Galloway’s Food Town, has many independent retailers, as well as schools, supermarkets, health services, veterinary services, a thriving livestock market, and an eighteen hole golf course. The regional capital, Dumfries, sits around 15 miles east, and provides a wider range of schools, shops, retail outlets, and other services including a major hospital, the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary. The town, once the home of the National Bard and Ploughman Poet Rabbie Burns, is now home to the Crichton campuses of Glasgow University and the University of the West of Scotland.
