19 St. Mary’s Place is a one bedroom ground floor flat. It is situated directly opposite the Health Centre and Cottage Hospital, and further along, St. Mary’s Place is known as Millburn Street. The shops and other amenities of Kirkcudbright are a short level walk away.
The flat is in general need of modernisation, and presents as a “blank canvas”, allowing purchasers to decorate and modernise to their own needs. Of course, the anticipated costs involved are reflected in the low asking price.
The flat benefits from a good sized garden to the rear which is mainly laid to grass for ease of maintenance. The flat benefits from double glazed sash and case windows to the front. Kirkcudbright is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. The town itself is of historic and architectural interest with its ancient High
Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys”. This tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers which has led to Kirkcudbright being named the “Artists’ Town”.
The southwest of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers and of course golf. The Solway is also a popular yachting destination and Scotland’s only Blue Flag Marina is only a short walk away.
