Kiambu is a traditional Galloway cottage located on the High Street in New Galloway. This property is deceptively spacious and offers well-proportioned light, bright rooms on all levels.
The property has a fabulous well-tended garden with a variety of mature roses and shrubs as well as two stone outbuildings which could lend themselves to future development subject to appropriate planning consents.
The current owners have recently applied and received a Building Warrant to change the layout to form an open plan kitchen/dining room, although no works have been carried out. The owners have also recently completely refurbished the bathroom prior to listing the property for sale.
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 Tea Room, 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, and a modern and dynamic Community & Arts Centre at The Cat Strand. A whole range of rural pursuits are easily obtainable nearby, with the emphasis on walking, cycling, water sports and fishing.
Set in a scenic rural location, 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 rear garden is accessed via the kitchen with a set of stairs with a path leading off a lawned area and large a stone outbuilding which this is split into two lower rooms and an upper floored attic.
Room 1 (4.40m x 4.39m) Room 2 (4.39m x 1.36m)
Immediately outside the outbuilding there is an area of communal garden ground which is shared with the property next door. A grassy path then winds down the side of the garden which has a mixture of wild cottage flowers and mature roses. The garden is laid to lawn with heathers and alpines in the center. Beyond this area is a greenhouse and then a further pathway leading down to what was a former vegetable plot, which is currently laid to grass and
bordered by hedge.
The oil tank is located adjacent to the steps into the garden.
Second Stone Outbuilding (4.01m x 2.88m)
The second stone outbuilding is abutted onto Kiambu and is located directly below the living room.
