Graeme Lumsden, Estate Agency Director/Valuer at BLACK HAY comments -
" In my view the allure of a seafront home and its ever changing sea views remains unmatched. After 35 years in the property industry my heart still skips a beat when I arrive at a seafront home and catch sight of the sea views which the owners can sometimes grow familiar with ...yet, perhaps with my family connection to the Mull of Kintyre I yearn to live by-the-sea ...many an hour immersed in the changing seascape ...and when you need to actually feel/breathe the sea at Cladach ...unlock the gate at the end of the garden and literally a pebble's throw away... the sand dunes beckon, and you are there ...walking the beach, whatever the weather ...water rippling or white-horses racing ashore on stormy days.
I live in the country with wonderful views, cows with their inquisitive heads looking over the hedges and a red squirrel that visits most days ...yet, what would I give for a home by-the-sea? The successful buyer of Cladach will, in my humble opinion ...be living their dream (and mine!) "

“ALDERBANK”, Doonfoot – A Charming Traditional Detached Cottage Style Home set amidst larger mature private gardens, within admired residential locale. Historically believed to be the site of one of the earliest built properties locally (however this is based on 3rd party information). The current owners have been resident for approx’ 30 years during which time they have upgraded/extended the property. It is fair to say that the successful purchaser will modernise the property however the competitive price allows scope to upgrade/re-style to your own taste/budget.
ALDERBANK is discreetly positioned on Scaur O’ Doon Road, well screened from the roadway by hedging/fencing with a pedestrian gate to the front whilst a gated driveway provides vehicular access to the rear. The mature gardens are of larger size, undoubtedly an attractive feature of the property, albeit some attention is required to these. Woodland area to the far side slopes down to the River Doon.
Internal viewing reveals a cosy home retaining it’s Cottage Style character with accommodation featured over 2 levels, comprising 7 Main Apartments. In particular, on the ground floor, entrance vestibule leads onto the reception hall which provides access to ground floor apartments whilst a staircase to the rear leads to the upper apartments, spacious lounge with most attractive sun room overlooking private front gardens, breakfasting kitchen leads onto larger size conservatory styled dining room (noting this is slate roofed to match the main house), two bedrooms, “downstairs” wc. On upper level, 2 further bedrooms and a bathroom (noted coombed ceiling upstairs). A small attached garage has integral access through a store room (just off bedroom No 1).
The specification includes gas central heating & double glazing. EPC – E. Generous mature gardens are a feature of the property encouraging fantastic enclosed family use or offering the keen gardener/bird lover the opportunity to create a picturesque haven. The detached garage to the rear has been removed however there remains ample space to build a garage/store (subject to any required planning permission) whilst the gated driveway offers further private parking.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments…
“I live on the edge of The Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park, so I’m used to being surrounded by nature. When I first walked into the gardens of ALDERBANK it just seemed to be a delightful sheltered natural haven, one in which to relax, whether at the end of a busy day or as part of a gentle retirement. Yes, it needs work done. Yes, the gardens need work. However, as an Antique Dealer friend of mine often says – find me another! I think the successful buyer secures the opportunity to develop their own haven, yet it’s not miles away in the countryside (as I am, commuting 90 miles each day to/from work) …..and don’t forget, the sweeping promenade/seafront is only a short walk away.”

For the New Owner... settle down at home or in your garden and reflect that you own a wonderful Glasgow West End style Character Home …at a much more appealing price …within a very short stroll of the beach. ”
