A charming extended country cottage of stone under slate roof with living room extension set in good sized hillside garden grounds in the heart of the Glenkens with excellent outlook over countryside across the valley to hills beyond. The property benefits from oil fired heating and multi-fuel stove. Fully Double Glazed.

Marchwell is the epitome of a quintessential country cottage. It is positioned just outside New Galloway. Benefiting from the appeal and views of being a rural property without compromising on accessibility to amenities.

The original stone cottage has been sympathetically extended over the years by previous owners to form the current layout which is well-proportioned and balanced. This three (potentially four) bedroom cottage also has ample garden ground to take advantage of the rural settings. In need of decorative adjustment to taste this property would be ideal for a young family, retiring couple, those looking for a country retreat or second home in the country.

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
