DESCRIPTION High Portling House is now an impressive contemporary house. Originally the property was constructed in the 1850’s and formed a traditional 1 ½ storey cottage which was then extensively extended in the 1950’s by the well-known McAlpine construction company. In more recent years the cottage has been fully renovated and further improvements have also been made throughout the main house which include the formation of the now large main family kitchen. All of the renovations have been carried out to a very high standard. The property allows for the possibility for further adaptations that could be made to the first floor office and studio spaces to create further living accommodations or become further bedroom suites. Throughout High Portling the accommodation is mainly to the front of the property which makes the most of the spectacular views to the Solway Firth and Lake District beyond and allows the natural light to flood through the property. Externally there are spaces within the gardens to spend time outside, again to enjoy the spectacular views and enjoyable climate.Please note that entry will not be before 22nd November 2022.All fitted carpets and most window dressings will be included within the sale.SITUATION Portling is a small hamlet situated one mile from Colvend on the breath-taking Solway Coast incorporating a stony beach at Port O’ Warren and a very ;arge sandy beach at Portling itself.

There are numerous lochs and rivers locally providing fishing as well as salmon and sea trout fishing on some of Dumfriesshire’s larger rivers such as the Nith and Annan.
