CLOSING DATE SET FOR TUESDAY, 16TH MARCH 2021 AT NOON.

DESCRIPTION
This off-grid property is ideal for those looking for a quiet country retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of busy lives. Craigdews has a sense of space and peacefulness which are complimented by the stunning surroundings. The property, which was originally built as two dwelling houses, but only ever used as one, sits by the side of the road. The accompanying C Listed outbuildings resemble a small cottage and have been well maintained over the years. The open plan Kitchen/Living Room is filled with natural light and the picture window offers the perfect vantage point to watch the wildlife come and go from the feeders in the garden. An open fire heats this room, in addition to the oil fired central heating. A Clear View wood burning stove adds warmth when required to the first floor Sitting Room. A ground floor third bedroom could be created in the room which is currently being used as a Study: like many people the existing owners are currently working from home. A five ring DeLonghi gas range cooker provides cooking facilities in the Kitchen.

Craigdews sits under a tiled roof, is double glazed throughout and the central heating is powered by a Worcester Danesmoor 26/32 boiler, situated in the Utility Room. Water is from a private supply, shared with a neighbouring property, and a UV filter is fitted within the property.


An area of courtyard leads to the outbuildings, where there is an abundance of storage space for outside equipment and garden tools and a Workshop with shelving and a fixed workbench. The Generator Room next door houses the generator, batteries and equipment required to provide electricity to the property.

Power Supply
The generator charges the batteries which power the house via the inverter that converts from DC to AC. A power management unit starts the generator when the batteries are low or when there is a high load that needs additional power over what the batteries can provide.

SITUATION
Craigdews is situated in the heart of the Galloway Forest Park, between the Wild Goat Park and the Red Deer Range, on The Queen’s Way. This area is known for its stunning natural beauty amid the Galloway Hills, with the Grey Mare’s Tail Waterfall, Murray’s Monument and Birthplace, and Clatteringshaws Loch nearby. It is also within the UK’s first Dark Sky Park, giving it breathtaking views of the night sky. Kirroughtree Visitor Centre, with numerous walks and cycle routes, and Clatteringshaws Visitor Centre are just a few miles either side of the property.
Newton Stewart is the nearest town, it has a range of shops including three supermarkets, offices, leisure centre, primary schools, and a secondary school.
