Low Cotland is a charming two bedroom property, with a paddock and stable block, sitting within 6.56 acres in rural Wigtownshire. In recent years Low Cotland has been run as a successful small garden centre, there are two large greenhouses, one heated and one wooden framed, as well as three wooden garden sheds and two polytunnels, one of which extends to 30m x 13.2m. The property is single storey, although the two attic rooms are currently used as bedrooms. However, they are not deemed to be officially habitable as the only access is via the loft ladder. It may be possible to convert them by reconfiguring the ground floor layout to accommodate a staircase, with the appropriate planning consents and permissions. Both the living room and sitting room have bay windows framing the view, and open fires, although in the sitting room an electric fire has been set in to the fire surround. There is an abundance of storage with a number of fitted cupboards throughout the property, fitted wardrobes in both bedrooms and an airing cupboard in the hall. The Utility Room is in a separate building just opposite the back door, with a WC and washhand basin, space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, and Worcester boiler for the oil fired central heating. Three solar panels on the roof provide additional energy to heat the hot water.
This property would be ideal for a family orthose seeking a lifestyle change. There is an opportunity to have a small number of livestock, ponies/horses, or to continue to run a small business from Low Cotland.
