13 Bourtree Crescent is a delightful three bedroom bungalow. With generous well proportioned rooms the property has a lovely ambiance and viewers will appreciate the spacious feel throughout the home. It benefits from full uPVC double glazing, full Gas Central Heating, considerable built in storage, and a large utility room separate from the kitchen. Canadian Maple floors through most of the property are a particular feature. The seller may retain some or all of the curtains.
This is a well positioned property, a level walk away from the shops and other amenities of the town, and with an open aspect to the west near the entrance to St Mary’s Isle Estate. Although the A711 public road lies immediately to the west, locals will appreciate that this is a very quiet section of road, as it leads to the small settlements of Dundrennan and Auchencairn.
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”.
Kirkcudbright enjoys a wide variety of mainly family owned shops, pubs, hotels and restaurants, whilst offering a wide range of facilities, including its own golf course, marina, swimming pool and an active summer festivities programme, including its own Jazz Festival and Tattoo.
