Rosebank is a lovely and surprisingly spacious three bedroomed family home. The original cottage was extended many years ago, when the large bright south facing main living
room at the rear of the house was added. The layout of the property allows the possibility to live on one level if desired.
Rosebank is situated on the corner of Main Street and Captain’s Brae, and benefits from a good sized tarmacadam area to the rear providing extensive off road parking. From here, the basement (which runs under the whole of the house) can be accessed, and would lend itself to a wide variety of uses, including as an artist’s studio, workshop, or for storage of gardening items, sports equipment, motorcycles and pushbikes.
Whilst most purchasers will be content with the existing layout and accommodation offered at Rosebank the following potential changes may be of interest to some:
A) It is believed that the wall between the kitchen and the main living room is a stud partition wall and could be easily removed if desired, to create a living area open plan
between the kitchen and the remainder of the living area.
B) There is a service road at the bottom of the garden and there is the potential to build a garage here subject to the necessary planning consents.
C) Whilst the basement is a most useful space at present, there may be the potential to form additional living accommodation in the basement. Again, if this is of interest, the
purchasers should seek their own advice from an architect, builder, or other suitable expert.
Twynholm is an active community benefiting from a Primary School, Garage with shop, and local pub. There are many community activities organized in the nearby Village Hall.

architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by artists it was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys”. Kirkcudbright is popular with tourists attracted by the well renowned galleries and maintains a flourishing colony of artists and craft workers which has led to it being called 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 programme including its own jazz festival and tattoo.
The South West of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline with a good range of outdoor activities easily available for those interested in hill walking, bird watching, fishing, mountain biking, water sports and of course golf. The Solway is also a popular yachting destination.
The basement area of the property is surprisingly spacious and runs the entire length and depth of the property. Accessed through double wooden doors from driveway. The
basement would lend itself to the pursuit of a number of hobbies, provides additional useful space to the house, and extensive storage for all manner of items to a purchaser’s
choosing. The space comprises:
MAIN ROOM 6.91m x 2.54m (22’08” x 8’03”)
This is the first area accessed and has a concrete floor with brick walls. It houses the electric meter and R.C.D board. There are kitchen cupboards for storage, and electric
light and power.
ROOM ON RIGHT 3.15m x 3.14m (10’04” x 10’03”)
With restricted head height, this room has a single drainer single sink with mixer tap, toilet, and space for tumble dryer. The British Gas 532i condensing boiler
is situated here. It is understood the toilet was installed by a previous owner, designed to be easily accessible when gardening, but would be equally useful
for someone pursuing a hobby or interest in the basement.
SPACE TO RIGHT 3.09m x 3.06m (10’01” X 10’00”)
This area has a traditional cobbled floor, stone walls, and currently provides additional useful storage space.
STORE AREA 6.25m x 5.44m (20’05” x 17’10”)
This area is beneath the front of the house, has restricted head height and cobbled floor for most of the area. There is a blocked up hatch that previously would have opened to the front of the house, and a blocked up doorway that previously would have opened to the side towards Captain’s Brae.
There is a small front garden finished with gravel and a paved path leading up to the front door. This is enclosed by a drystone dyke to part and well established hedge to the other part. The rear garden can be directly accessed from both Captain’s Brae and the house.
There is an extensive tarmacadam parking area immediately behind the house, large enough for three or four cars, and steps lead up from here to the rear door.
There is access from the parking area through to the rear garden which has very well landscaped paths leading through an attractive mix of lawn and bedding
areas well stocked with plants providing an abundance of cover all year round.
