Charming stone built country cottage in excellent decorative order, with stunning outlook towards Kirkcudbright, the Dee Estuary and beyond to surrounding countryside. Gardens to the front with off-road parking.

The Byre is a charming and unique country cottage, situated on the outskirts of the harbour ‘artist’ town of Kirkcudbright. Although end terrace, the property does not feel like your typical end of terrace because of its location and neighbouring former Cider Tower.

The cottage has been sympathetically converted to couple a traditional building with the convenience of modern living. It has spectaculars views to the front across open countryside out to the harbour town of Kirkcudbright and follows the Dee Estuary beyond across to the Galloway Hills.

If not too distracted by the views, the accommodation offered by Byre Cottage is excellent, and is tastefully decorated throughout. Presently used as a holiday let, this property would be ideal for continuing as holiday let, long term let or indeed as a permanent home. The property is available for sale fully furnished subject to separate negotiation. All white goods, carpets, curtains and blinds are included.

Byre Cottage is situated on Cannee Hill approximately 1 mile from Kirkcudbright town centre. Being positioned on the outskirts of Kirkcudbright, it allows convenient access to all local amenities, whilst offering the opportunity of rural living.

Kirkcudbright itself is a historic and architecturally interesting town which has a castle and harbour at its heart. Labelled ‘The Artists’ Town’ Kirkcudbright has long since played host to well-known artists including E.A. Taylor, Jessie M King and E.A Hornel. In more recent years the town has welcomed a number of art exhibitions and local galleries to its repertoire of attractions. Kirkcudbright also has a range of local amenities including, convenience stores, dental practice, optician, health centre, primary school, Kirkcudbright Academy, Kirkcudbright Museum and a variety of sports facilities and clubs including squash club, tennis courts, golf course, Kirkcudbright Swimming Pool and fitness facilities and marina.
