Kennedys Corner is situated in a rural location near to many small villages including Kirtlebridge (4 miles), Eaglesfield (3.8miles) & Waterbeck (2.8 miles) offering a range of services including post office and store in Eaglesfield. Lockerbie provides a full range of services to the local community including schooling, local shops, supermarket, chemist, Banks, hotels and a post office. The property is ideally situated for easy access to many towns, Lockerbie being one but also a short distance to Annan and Gretna. Dumfries and Carlisle provide a wider range of services.
The M74 motorway is some 4 miles distant, whilst the main line railway station in Carlisle is some 20 miles distant. The fastest train to London Euston takes approximately 3 ½ hours. There is also a railway station in Lockerbie, with direct services to Glasgow and Edinburgh taking approximately 1hr, they also run a less frequent direct London Euston service. The airports of Edinburgh (89.8 miles), Glasgow (90.6 miles) and Newcastle (72 miles) are all within a two hour drive.
The area is renowned for its mild climate and beautiful scenery, and keen gardeners can grow a wide variety of plants, shrubs and trees in the rich soils. The area offers a wealth of opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. There are excellent hill walking and riding opportunities in the area, as well as mountain biking at the Seven Stanes mountain bike centres of Ae, Newcastleton and Dalbeattie. Salmon and sea trout fishing is available on the nearby Rivers Nith, Annan and Border Esk, as well as trout fishing on Dumfriesshire’s numerous lochs and rivers. There is some spectacular driven and walked up shooting available on the local estates, as well as wild fowling on the nearby Solway coast. Equestrian pursuits are popular in the area, with lots of potential to hack out on the quiet country lanes.
Kennedy’s Corner provides an attractive lifestyle property in peaceful rural location. With a range of outbuildings, kennels, log cabin and outside space, the property offers an attractive package to any potential purchaser. The property offers deceptively spacious accommodation over two floors with the living room providing the central hub of the home, offering the wood burning stove, double sliding doors opening to the Dining Room and double doors opening to the patio area. The Master bedroom on the first floor offers an extensive space, with en suite. The cottage benefits from modern Kyros electric smart heating (which can be controlled from a smart device), double glazing, modern CCTV secure system, wood burning stove and all windows and doors in the property were replaced in the summer of 2017. The new purchaser may re-configure the layout to provide a more open plan kitchen/dining space which is perhaps more of appeal to modern day living, something which could be achieved subject to obtaining relevant permissions. The log cabin in the grounds provides additional flexible entertaining/hosting space, lending perfectly to a hobby space, relaxing area, home gym or home office. The paddock opposite offers further space which could be adapted to suit the buyers needs for example market garden, poly tunnels, hen/duck enclosure, small grazing space etc.
