Burnfoot House is a charming seaside property, overlooking Wigtown Bay and the coastline beyond. Just the width of the single track road from the beach and with the sound of the fresh water burn entering the sea further along the coastline. The Entrance Vestibule opens in to the Hall, with door opening to the Kitchen/Dining Area and Sitting Room. The double aspect Kitchen is open plan, and a wood burning stove keeps the informal seating area cosy when required. A gas hob and double oven provide cooking facilities. The tiled floor throughout the ground floor makes it easy to remove sand brought in on both feet and paws, from strolls along the coastline. The gas boiler for the central heating is situated in the Utility Room, where there is also space and plumbing for white goods. A door opens in to a small WC from the Utility Room, and a back door opens out to the garden behind, and there is a pedestrian entrance to the garage and tool shed.
The double aspect Sitting Room has an open fire, and leads through to the Garden Room, a bright and airy room used for dining or simply relaxing and enjoying views of both the garden and sea beyond. The Garden Room has double doors opening out to a patio area with a solid wood table for dining al fresco.
NB. There is an obligation to maintain a share of the private road, bridge and dry stone wall, which is divided between the five properties on the road.
Ground Floor: Entrance Vestibule, Hall, Kitchen/Dining Area, Utility Room, W.C., Sitting Room, Garden Room
First Floor: Bedroom 1, Bathroom, Bedroom 2 en-suite.
Burnfoot House is the second property in a private road with five individual houses just a stone’s throw from the shore at Carsluith, overlooking Wigtown Bay. About half a mile west, is a smokehouse which also has a Bistro, and the village of Creetown is two miles away with a shop and primary school. Supermarkets, schools, a range of shops and other amenities are available in the nearby town of Newton Stewart. The area is well known for outdoor pursuits and sports, with Kirroughtree Forest a few miles west, part of the Seven Stanes range of mountain biking trails. Fishing, shooting, golf and equestrian facilities are all readily available throughout the area.
Trains to Ayr and Glasgow are available at Stranraer, about 30 miles west, with ferries to Northern Ireland at nearby Cairnryan. Trains also run from the regional centre of Dumfries 39 miles to the east. Domestic and international flights are available at Prestwick Airport, 60 miles north, and Glasgow and Edinburgh Airports, 92 and 122 miles respectively. Motorway links and trains are available at Lockerbie, 52 miles east, and Kilmarnock, 71 miles north.
There is an area of lawn to the front and rear of the property, with an array of mature trees and shrubs, including a monkey puzzle tree. The garden is rich in wildlife, with woodpeckers and other garden birds, plus a variety of seabirds can be seen over the bay. Steps lead up from the patio to the main garden where a dry stone wall provides the boundary. Hidden at the very back of the garden, amongst the trees, is a former outside WC, which has been used more recently as a potting shed.
