Sitting within 0.6 acres, Tarka is a stylish Norwegain log sitting under a turf roof. The cabin was designed and built by Norlog Ltd who are based in Kirkmichael and have been constructing log cabins for over 40 years throughout the UK and Ireland. The cabins mirror those constructed around the world and are often found in some of the harshest climates due to their ability to hold and re-radiate heat and simple maintenance. The property was commissioned by the film writer and director Charles Crichton renowned for the ever popular Ealing comedies and more recently for “A fish called Wanda”. Very much the heart of the house is the large open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, this bright spacious room is ideal for modern family living with large patio doors and windows making the most of the stunning scenery surrounding the cabin. A door in the kitchen area leads to the utility room which with its wall and base units and door to the garden provides a useful space for storage. There are two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes as well as a single bedroom currently used as a study, a family room to the east which offers options to be used as an additional bedroom.
Within the grounds of Tarka there is a traditional stone built building which is currently utilised as a wash house and store, however subject to gaining the necessary planning consents this building offers development potential into additional accommodation either as a stand alone unit or ancillary accommodation.
