Charming stone built three bedroomed terraced cottage in the Glenkens village of New Galloway with large rear garden.

Sunnyside is well named since the houses in Sunnyside all face due south. From New Galloway’s High Street, opposite the Cross Keys Hotel, the street is initially called “Wylies Brae”, which is the section of the street where the houses sit on the right-hand side of the road. Thereafter, where the houses are on the left hand side of the road the street is called “Sunnyside”.
This cottage benefits from having a good sized garden, wider than its frontage, and there is access along the gable end of the adjacent property to reach the garden externally.

The cottage has been tastefully upgraded in recent years to enhance some of its traditional features.

The Glenkens, scenically, is a delightful area and New Galloway at its heart used to be the smallest “Royal Burgh” in Scotland. That focus, and indication of civic pride, may explain why it has a surprising range of immediately local facilities for such a small town – there is a challenging 9-hole Golf Course affording magnificent views, hotels, an excellent cafe within the Catstrand, a Post Office and community run modern General Store, a Medical Practice, two Churches (Church of Scotland and Scottish Episcopalian), a well-regarded Primary School with a Secondary School three miles away at Dalry, a modern and dynamic Community & Arts Centre at The Cat Strand and a newly refurbished Town Hall offering leisure activities. A whole range of rural pursuits are easily obtainable nearby, with the emphasis on walking, cycling, water sports and fishing.

The property is set in a scenic rural location, but many larger centres are easily accessible – Ayr is approx 1 hour north, Dumfries approx 45 minutes east, Castle Douglas approx 20 minutes south, Newton Stewart approx 30 minutes west and Kirkcudbright approx 30 minutes south.

The Dumfries and Galloway Region is renowned for its beautiful countryside with rolling pastures broken by stone dykes and amenity woodland with a rugged coastline. Benefiting from the Gulf Stream, the general climate is mild and there are consequently many beautiful gardens nearby including the National Trust Gardens at Threave.
