Spacious detached four bedroom family home located on the Solway Coast on the edge of a peaceful rural hamlet.

First time on the market, Sunadal is a spacious detached 4-bedroom family home. It is tucked away up a private driveway off the A710, a lovely scenic route along the Solway Coast fromDumfries. Situated within the peaceful hamlet of Caulkerbush, this house offers the opportunity to live a dream countryside existence with beautiful sandy beaches, woodland walks and wildlife havens on your doorstep.

Well served by the local towns of Dumfries (16 miles), Dalbeattie (8 miles) and Castle Douglas (15 miles), this home combines superb location with convenient travel routes. The towns provide a good mix of local independent shops and supermarkets. Dumfries is approximately 1.5 hours car journey from Glasgow and the train station provides convenient rail links North and South on the West Coast Mainline. Nearer to hand is the village of Colvend, with a shop and café and rural school. Towards Dumfries there are rural Primary Schools in Kirkbean and New Abbey with Secondary education accessed by bus in Dalbeattie and Dumfries.

The surrounding area provides access to a wealth of outdoor pursuits such as Sailing at Kippford on the Urr estuary and Golf at local courses of Colvend and Barnbarroch, with the Championship links course at Southerness. Three of the “7stanes” Mountain biking trail
centres (Ae, Mabie and Dalbeattie) are less than 45 minutes’ drive. Mersehead RSPB nature reserve, with its unspoilt beach and the community run Lawn Tennis Club are within walking distance of Sunadal.

How to get there: 
From Dalbeattie take the A710 coast road, proceed along this route through Colvend and Sandyhills to Caulkerbush. Sunadal is the first turn left, the property sits at the top of the driveway.

From Dumfries on the southern outskirts of the town, take the A710 coast road and proceed on this route through New Abbey, Kirkbean and Mainsriddle. After crossing the historic Southwick bridge, continue to Caulkerbush where the private driveway to Sunadal is on the right handside, just before leaving the hamlet.

Sunadal has a delightful garden with a variety of interesting and pleasant areas for its owners to enjoy. The garden to the front of the property has a ‘cottage garden’ feel; mainly laid to lawn with number of mature shrubs and fruit trees interspersed with a variety hardy perennials and pergola and rockery areas. To the front alone there are two patio areas which are ideal for outdoor entertaining or simply enjoying your surroundings.

The garden wraps round the house on both sides leading to a rear patio area which is sheltered by the rockery and trees behind. The rear area of the garden beyond the patio has been left as a natural woodland area with a variety of deciduous trees, ferns, bluebells and daffodils.

Natural well. As the elevation of the garden increases this provides for wonderful views over the roof of Sunadal and the farmland to the side across to the Solway coast. Largely untouched this tranquil area would be an ideal location for summer house or hideaway. There is also the potential (subject to obtaining the relevant planning permission) for a wind turbine or solar panels.

(Due to the elevation of the rear garden we would recommend that viewers wear sturdy shoes.)
