DESCRIPTION
East Balscalloch Cottage has been recently renovated, a new fitted Kitchen and Bathroom have been installed and both the Entrance Vestibule and Conservatory have been replaced. The open plan layout allows both light and views to filter through from the Conservatory to the Sitting Room, and French doors open from the Kitchen to the Conservatory, which doubles as a Dining Room.
The property sits under a slate roof, has oil fired central heating powered by a Worcester Greenstar boiler, and an open fire provides extra warmth in the Sitting Room. A number of fitted cupboards throughout the property provide storage space, with more space available in the loft, which can be accessed from the Bathroom. This property will appeal to a variety of people, including those looking for a ‘bolt hole’ in the country, a place to escape to, surrounded by open countryside and stunning views from the Conservatory and Garden behind.

SITUATION
East Balscalloch Cottage is situated on the north tip of the Rhins of Galloway Peninsula and has far-reaching views of open countryside, the Ailsa Craig, Arran and Kintyre Peninsula down to the Mull of Kintyre. The Cottage is less than three miles from the village of Kirkcolm, a small rural village with a primary school, church, hotel, shop and post office. Nearby Loch Ryan Sailing Club offers sailing lessons for those who would like to make the most of the coastal location.
Stranraer is the main town, where you will find a secondary school, primary schools, supermarkets, shops, offices, hotels, restaurants, and Stranraer train station. The two main ferry ports to Northern Ireland are in Cairnryan, just over 6 miles from Stranraer.

GARDEN
The front garden at East Balscalloch Cottage is mainly laid to lawn and edged with mature shrubs either side of the drive way and along the boundary, with an area of patio beside the Garage. The garden behind the cottage has a ‘cottage garden’ feel. Small areas of lawn, edged with borders and shrubs are divided by dry stone dykes. There is also a vegetable patch, patio and access to the wooden outbuildings. NB. A redundant MOD mast can be seen from the front Garden in the field adjacent.
