A beautifully appointed, detached twin bay fronted, four bedroom property on the edge of a peaceful rural hamlet. Thoughtfully extended and renovated to high specification within the last 5 years to take full advantage of the views to surrounding countryside and Screel hill. Within easy commuting distance of Dumfries, Dalbeattie and Castle Douglas. Large garden with accompanying patio and outbuildings.
Iona is a generously proportioned one and half storey house spreading over some 241 sq meters positioned in a delightful rural setting, only a short walk from Milton Loch. Spacious yet homely, the recent extension includes floor to ceiling feature windows allowing ample natural light into the property and for the surrounding countryside to be taken in from the comfort of its tastefully decorated accommodation. The property benefits from modern UPVC double glazing throughout, a new gas fired heating system complemented by log burners in the reception sitting rooms, and has been largely re plumbed within recent years. The proportions and finish of the interiors is similarly mirrored externally with the recent K-rend finish to the house and the newly laid porcelain tile patio.
Iona would be an ideal family home, or for those city dwellers looking for a well-appointed country retreat. The property must be viewed to be fully appreciated its rural setting and immaculate finish.
Milton itself lies about half way between Dumfries and Castle Douglas via the Old Military Road which links Dumfries and Castle Douglas with the villages of Milton, Hardgate and Haugh of Urr by means of a quieter country road although with relatively easy access to the main A75 Euro route if preferred. Hardgate Primary School lies approximately 3 miles to the west with a good choice of secondary schooling in Dumfries, Castle Douglas or Dalbeattie relatively nearby. The DGRI Hospital is a 10 minute drive away. Local
amenities in nearby Crocketford.
The main garden is a large flat, lawned area to the front property, south facing and surrounded by countryside. The traditional dry stone dyke to the perimeter is mirrored within the garden steps as you rise to the patio are and tarmacked drive.
There is a large patio area laid part to gravel and part to porcelain tiling to the west side of the property – perfect for taking in the stunning sunsets or clear night sky carpet of stars in the privacy of Iona’s grounds.
To the rear, benefiting from morning and afternoon sun, the garden is mainly laid to lawn with boundary hedging for privacy. Gravel and paved pathways lead to the various outbuildings including storage shed (with power), garden shed (with power), log store and Summerhouse which opens on to the patio for easy alfresco entertaining.
There is a lawned area and parking space to the east side of the property which would be ideal designated for a garage as preferred. Large driveway with space for several cars parked off road.
