Stumbleholm Cottage is a well-proportioned detached cottage set just off the central crossroads within the pretty rural village of Laurieston. The property has been re-furbished to a high standard by the present owners and the accommodation now offered is in excellent condition. Stumbleholm is well balanced giving the perfect blend of reception and bedroom accommodation. The exterior impresses as the perfect country cottage and internally offers good sized accommodation without losing the \”cosy\” appeal. This property would be ideal as a buy-to-let/investment or for a couple looking to downsize or young family.
Stumbleholm Cottage is idyllically positioned at the edge of Laurieston village and therefore the aspects from the garden and side windows has open outlook. Laurieston is something of a hub with easy access over a charming hill road to Gatehouse of Fleet, south to Ringford and Kirkcudbright, north to New Galloway and east to the main shopping centre of Castle Douglas which is about a 10 minute drive.
Castle Douglas is a thriving Galloway market town, lying approximately 18 miles south-west of Dumfries and enjoying an enviable range of shops and other facilities in a town now promoted as a \”Food Town\”. The town also has a wide range of facilities including excellent primary and secondary schools, modern Health Centre, supermarkets and a thriving community run theatre, The Fullarton, nearby.
The Dumfries and Galloway Region is renowned for its beautiful countryside with rolling pastures broken by stone dykes and amenity woodland with a rugged coastline. Benefiting from the Gulf Stream, the general climate is mild and there are consequently many beautiful gardens nearby including the National Trust Gardens at Threave.
The cottage is nicely enclosed with post and rail fencing in front of the Cottage, which incorporates a pedestrian gate to the front door and a large combined vehicle/ pedestrian gate to the side. The front garden is laid out with, to the west, a rocky outcrop used as a feature. There is a sheltered patio behind with gravel underfoot. The south facing garden, however, is a delightful. It is a sunken garden behind mature hedge to the east side of the property where graveled pathways lead down to a very sheltered sitting area that catches sun for the whole of the day.
There is an outside tap, outside lighting external central heating boiler. Powerpoint.
The shed and log store in the garden are included, as is the coal bunker, storage cabinet and oil tank.
