Tynwald was built in approximately 1850 and extended in around 1900. The property still has many original features including, Victorian decorative tiles in the Entrance Vestibule, timber bannister and spindles and decorative etched glass in the hall door. Four open fires remain in the property, one in each of the ground floor reception rooms and two on the first floor in Bedrooms 1 and 2. A Triplex oven fire with tiled surround is the focal point in the Kitchen, previously used daily for cooking, baking and to heat the property, which now provides an insight in to times gone by.
In 2012 a more modern external Worcester combi boiler was installed, to power the oil fired central heating and heat the water. The Utility Room also has original double Belfast style sinks, one with more depth than the other and still in working order.
The slate roof at the rear of the property was renewed in 2019, and double glazed units were put in to windows at the front, however windows to the side and rear of the property are timber sash and case windows.
Tynwald is a bright spacious property with high ceilings and has the potential to be a wonderful family home, however it is now in need of complete refurbishment to bring it up to modern standards. Although this property does not boast sea views, Bedroom 3 does have a sea view.
Tynwald is situated in the small fishing village of Port William, within walking distance of the beach and local amenities. Port William has its own primary school, shops, doctor’s surgery, tea room and hairdressers. There is a great community spirit within the village and a carnival week is held there annually. The community spirit is extended into the local volunteers who man the Port William Inshore Rescue Boat, funded by the community, and a vital asset in a fishing village and popular holiday destination.
Newton Stewart, the nearest town, is a market town in rural Wigtownshire and known as the Gateway to the Galloway Hills. Newton Stewart offers a wide range of shops and offices, as well as a leisure centre, community cinema, secondary school, three primary schools and three supermarkets.
The garden extends out behind the property, there is a small garden shed, fruit trees, pathways, borders and lawn, edged with a number of mature shrubs and small trees. There is pedestrian access to the garden via a shared path to the side of the property.
