An immaculately presented spacious country cottage tastefully decorated enjoying an incredible coastal position with expansive
south facing views over the Dee Estuary to Ross Island and beyond.

Nun Mill House is a delightful traditional coastal cottage offering well proportioned flexible accommodation throughout. The cottage has

Nun Mill House benefits from Double glazing, oil fired central heating, a lovely and easily maintained garden, and an extensive parking area, the ownership of which goes with the house.

Kirkcudbright is approximately three miles away, and 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” who lived in nearby
Broughton House, now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland.

Artistic tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers which has led to Kirkcudbright being named the
“Artists’ Town”.

The south-west of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has
a good range of sporting and outdoor activities, with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers, and, of course, golf. The Solway is also a popular yachting destination.
