As the name suggests, The Edge sits perched on a cliffside overlooking the Solway Firth towards Cumbria on a stretch of coastline known colloquially as ‘The Scottish Riviera’. The area is sought after for its microclimate, dramatic tides, rugged coast and stunning countryside. Also offering wonderful sporting and recreational opportunities with Kippford Marina only 6 miles to the west and the championship golf course of Southerness only 8 miles to the east. Loch, River and Sea Fishing are all within easy reach. The property is within driving distance of amenities in Dalbeattie, where there are a range of smaller shops, schools and services, and Dumfries, the regional capital, which provides a wide range of high street shops, retail parks, supermarkets, services, schools, college, university campuses, and a major hospital. The Edge has therefore significant Dual Use investment potential as both a Home and / or Luxury Holiday Let.
Communications are good with the A75 giving good access to Carlisle in the east and to Stranraer in the west. There is a main line railway station in Dumfries with connections to Carlisle, Newcastle and Glasgow, and in Lockerbie with connections to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester. The M74 motorway link north and south, can be accessed easily by following the A75 to Gretna or Lockerbie. International and domestic flights are available from Prestwick Airport and Glasgow Airport with Newcastle and Carlisle Airport in the South.
Electric gates open to a parking area for several vehicles. An oak deck sweeps across the main ground floor accommodation, whilst a boardwalk connects to a viewing platform projecting beyond the cliff edge for maximum impact. The remainder of the garden is landscaped for minimum upkeep.
