Well presented, charming semi detached 2 bedroom Galloway cottage situated in the picturesque hillside village of
Balmaclellan in the Glenkens.

Shierglass is a delightful two bedroom traditional Galloway Cottage offering light, bright well-proportioned accommodation. The current owners have sympathetically updated the property including fully rewiring the property.

Balmaclellan is an interesting village, quietly placed off the Kenbridge – Corsock Road so is convenient for the main A713 running between Ayr and Castle Douglas. The main local centre of Castle Douglas is little more than 20 minutes by car. Dumfries and Ayr are similarly easily accessable. Within this area of the Glenkens, New Galloway is less than 2 miles and Dalry is about five miles and between them they have a reasonable range of local services including general grocery shops, hotels and restaurant facilities . Dalry has a senior and primary school and New Galloway a primary school.

New Galloway (2 miles away) has  a golf course, a modern medical practice, and the purpose built “CatStrand”
of the Glenkens Community Arts Trust initiative offers live theatre and music events, there are also cafes and hotels. Loch Ken Activity Centre is a short drive away where outdoor water sports can be enjoyed along with fishing, wild swimming and a multitude of woodland walks nearby.

Balmaclellan itself has an excellent shop and a vibrant arts centre, which hosts classes and events, is located nearby at “The Smiddy”. Balmaclellan  is visited by a mobile Bank and Post Office. There is a Post Office in nearby
New Galloway. The Village Hall in Balmaclellan enjoys a number of community activities. The Kenbridge Hotel on the A713 is easily walkable. The surrounding area offers excellent walking and other rural pursuits.

Outside: Immediately to the rear of Shierglass is a recently installed decking area which can be accessed directly from the Kitchen / Diner or from the garden. This provides a wonderful area which catches the sun all day round allowing for private area for alfresco dining. There is also an outdoor tap and electricity point.

Delightful enclosed private garden, secure and suitable for children and pets, mainly laid to lawn bordered by raised flower beds to one side stocked with a variety of mature plants and shrubs. The garden backs on to open farmland
and countryside. To the side of the property is a gravel driveway which can be accessed directly from the main street which could provide useful parking. Wooden log store.

Accessed via steps in the garden leads to a useful basement area which may be suitable for further development subject to appropriate planning consents.

The surprisingly large basement is split into four distinct rooms all with power, concrete floor. It is understood that the previous owners of Shierglass did have plans drawn up to incorporate these rooms into the existing living
accommodation at the property.
