Makkevet Bor is an architect-designed house constructed circa 1976 to take advantage of the site (Makkevet Bor means “quarry”). The property offers spacious accommodation over three floors. The main and upper floors enjoy extensive views over the village and the valley of the Ken. Level access to the main floor is gained by a large circular driveway to the rear of house. There is a detached double garage. The property is set within a large, mature garden measuring 0.25 acres (approx.) The current sellers have been the only owners and occupiers of the property from construction. The main living and dining area provides the focal point of the property offering an ideal area for entertaining friends and family. Served by superfast fibre broadband (up to 70Mbs), the study offers potential for continued use as an office or as a further lounge or family room. There is direct access from the High Street to an off-road parking area to the front of the property which in turn provides direct access to the lower ground floor. This access offers the potential of separating the lower ground floor from the main living area as an independent annex. With correct planning consents, a portion of the garden could be developed while still allowing ample garden space for Makkevet Bor and any new development.
Makkevet Bor is set back towards the south end of the New Galloway high street. New Galloway is a peaceful village located at the northern end of Loch Ken.
