Rutherford offers a contemporary energy efficient property in a highly attractive edge of village location with far reaching countryside views. Rutherford was completed in 2016, presenting beautifully throughout. With two reception rooms, 3 bedrooms (one of which on the ground floor) and a bathroom/shower room on each floor together with an integral garage and utility room Rutherford offers deceptively spacious and flexible living space. The property being built to modern specification includes air source heating (underfloor heating to the ground floor) allowing a favourable energy efficiency, with the increased appeal of being in receipt of RHI payments at around £241 per quarter, which will transfer to the new owner. It is understood a further 4.5 years of payments remain under the scheme. Rutherford enjoys far reaching countryside views over the Red Kite feeding station and beyond.
Accessed from the road via a shared driveway, with a right of access past Kiteview. To the rear of the property a large area of gravel driveway provides sufficient parking for a number of vehicles and access to the Garage. Paved pathway leads to rear door and goes around the property accessing front door and further area of paving. Grassed area to front extending down towards the road. The property garden is bound predominantly by stockproof fence with a post and rail fence and wooden gate separating Rutherford and Kiteview.
*In order for completion certificate to be granted on Rutherford a ramp access will be added at end of tenancy by the vendor at the vendor’s expense.*
Rutherford is situated in an attractive, elevated location on the edge of the village of Laurieston. Looking out over the rolling countryside towards the Red Kite Feeding Station at Bellymack and Meikle Dornell Hill beyond.
The nearby market town of Castle Douglas has a good range of shops, supermarkets, and other services, and is designated Dumfries and Galloway’s Food Town. The regional capital of Dumfries offers a wider range of shops, retail outlets and services including the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary.
Communications to the area are very good, with a regular weekday bus service from the village to Castle Douglas and onward travel to towns across the region from Castle Douglas including Dumfries, Dalbeattie and Kirkcudbright. Railway stations in both Dumfries and Lockerbie, providing connections to both North and South. The M74 motorway is about 51 miles distant allowing easy access north and south. Regular flights to parts of the UK and Ireland as well as continental Europe depart from Prestwick Airport, which is 51 miles to the north. Both Glasgow and Edinburgh, which have international airports are around 85 / 104 miles respectively.
