SITUATION Portling is a small hamlet situated one mile from Colvend on the striking Solway Coast incorporating a stony beach at Port O’ Warren. Colvend village has a well-stocked village shop, tea room, a primary school, church and a village hall which hosts a variety of events such as local produce markets, a post van 3 times a week, and is on a regular bus route. The nearby town of Dalbeattie has a good range of shops, cafes, hotels, restaurants, nurseries, primary and secondary schools, and both dentist and doctors surgeries. The market town of Castle Douglas has local individual shops, schools, supermarkets, health services, veterinary services and a thriving livestock market. Dumfries is the principal town in the area, and provides a wider range of schools, shops, retail outlets, and other services including a major hospital, the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary. Dumfries is home to the Crichton campuses of Glasgow University and the University of the West of Scotland. Communications to the area are good. There are mainline railway stations in both Dumfries and Lockerbie, providing excellent links to both the north and south. The M74 motorway network is 45 miles distant, and there are regular flights to other parts of the UK, Ireland and Continental Europe from Prestwick Airport 69 miles north, Glasgow 101 miles and Edinburgh 103 miles.DESCRIPTION Torr is a highly appealing property with deceptively spacious accommodation providing an excellent opportunity for either full time living or holiday use. Only a short walk to the beach, and sitting within the group of properties collectively known as The Torrs, the property has a large garden giving plenty of privacy and scope for a keen gardener to create a variety of planting areas. Two reception rooms, ideal for cosy family get-togethers or more formal entertaining, are complemented by the large kitchen and open plan dining room. 3 good sized bedrooms provide the main sleeping accommodation with a fourth room which currently serves as a study but could easily be a small single room. The garage has a separate utility room to the rear with a shower room off, handy for those post beach toes both human and canine. A large workshop lends itself to a range of possible uses and is complemented by a sizeable log store. The house has full fibre broadband, useful for working from home or streaming media.ACCOMMODATIONGround Floor: Entrance Sun Porch, Hallway, Living Room, Sitting Room, Kitchen with open plan Dining Room, Shower Room, Boot Room, Rear Porch.First Floor: Master Bedroom, 2 further Double Bedrooms, Study/Bedroom 4, BathroomOutside: Garage.
