SITUATION Rosemount sits in an enviable position on the waterfront road which forms the original Victorian heart of Kippford.Kippford is perennially popular and provides two hotels, the Solway Sailing Club, village hall, golf course with tea room, RNLI, and a gift shop/small delicatessen, and a pottery. The nearby town of Dalbeattie has a good range of shops, cafes, hotels, restaurants, primary and secondary schools, health centre, solicitors, and park with a boating lake. The market town of Castle Douglas is known as Dumfries and Galloway’s Food Town, and has individual shops, schools, supermarkets, health services, veterinary services, a thriving livestock market, and nine hole golf course. Dumfries, around 18 miles east, is the regional capital, 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 also home to the Crichton campuses of Glasgow University and the University of the West of Scotland.DESCRIPTION Rosemount is a traditional Victorian detached granite house in a prominent position on the quaint seafront of Kippford. It has been run as guest house for some years, but is currently not trading. Now in need of upgrading, the house could either be opened up as a business again, or would make a wonderful family home. The current configuration of the first floor is two letting bedroom suites of bedroom, sitting room and en-suite shower room. There are original doors still in situ, meaning the sitting rooms could be utilised as bedrooms again, giving a total of five bedrooms including the second floor bedroom. The large conservatory to the front has been in situ in some form or other since pre-planning regulation days, and is unique along the seafront. Two large ground floor reception rooms and a smaller snug complete the public spaces. An ‘Aga room’, kitchen and scullery/utility room make up the ancillary accommodation to the rear. A detached annexe has been used in the past as a third letting suite, but could be very useful as a home office, hobby room or ‘teen pad’.ACCOMMODATION Ground Floor: Conservatory. Dining Room.
