The house has a solid feel and benefits from full gas central heating and double glazing. Its situation on a west facing slope near the foot of the Barrhill means it enjoys natural light from the south and the evening light from the west, particularly as it has an open aspect to the front, as the houses on the other side of the road are at a lower level. The rear garden enjoys a good degree of privacy with well established hedges and other planting providing screening from neighbouring properties.
Bourtree Avenue is a peaceful road, but Rosebank is also particularly convenient for the Health Centre and Cottage Hospital at the end of the road, and the shops, schools and other amenities of the town a short walk away.
All carpets and fitted floor coverings together with all curtains and other window coverings are included in the sale. Other contents may be available also.
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, Tollbooth Arts Centre, Stewart Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornell, 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 programmer, including its own Jazz Festival and Tattoo
INTEGRAL GARAGE 5.86m x 2.59m (19’2” X 8’5”)
The brick built integral garage has a sloping metal roof and concrete floor. There is an “up-and-over” door to the front, window to rear and pedestrian door to rear also. A blocked up entrance will have lead through from the utility room originally. Electric light and power. Water tap.
The driveway leading to the garage and the area along the whole of the front of the house is finished in block paving providing a good sized parking area. The remainder of the front garden is laid to lawn surrounded by bedding with a wide variety of perennials in evidence. The block paved path continues up the south side of the house and adjacent to this is a flower bed with further lawn beyond and a good sized hedge providing privacy from neighbours.
A gate leads through to the rear garden where there is a very generous patio extending along the whole width of the rear of the house and split over two levels.
The block paved path extends up the other side of the house also and the area to the rear of the back door from the utility room and the garage is finished in concrete and/or paving for ease of maintenance also. A short run of steps leads from the upper patio to a delightful area of lawn which is something of a sun trap with trees to the north and good sized hedges all round. There is also a path leading up the left side of the garden as viewed from the house. Potential purchasers should note that the title to Rosebank is to a rectangular area and actually includes the area of rough ground beyond the fence of approximately 4’0” in height to the higher rear fence with trellis above, which provides privacy from the neighbouring property. This area of rougher ground can be accessed through a gate in the top left corner of the 4’0” fence. Of course, it is included in the sale.
SUMMERHOUSE 2.60m x 2.43m (8’6” x 7’11”) The wooden summerhouse is situated towards the top of the garden allowing the lovely outlook over the garden to be enjoyed. It has double doors, a small covered area to the front and pitched roof.
