The house itself is well appointed with a good fitted kitchen incorporating many integral appliances and a beautiful fitted shower room being particular features.  There is uPVC double glazing throughout and gas central heating with radiators to all rooms except 2 bedrooms, and all radiators having thermostatic controls except for the radiator in the bathroom. Room dimensions are the maximum dimensions in each room.

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
