Property Summary

* NEW to Market - Available to View Now * A rare opportunity to acquire a small Cottage, believed to date circa 1900, within favoured Wigtown (designated in 1998 as Scotland’s National Book Town) on the “Machars Peninsula”, historically a very interesting area set amidst picturesque South West Scotland, located adjacent to the Solway with the Wigtown Bay Local Nature Reserve (LNR) just a few minutes walk from the property.

The cottage is located within a conservation area. A comfortable home to its owner over a number of years however it does now need modernisation with the Home Report detailing some of the works required, however the competitive price allows scope for the successful purchaser to upgrade to their own spec’/budget.

The property occupies an end of terrace/corner position, a short walk from the town hall/square. Access is via its main door entrance to the front which opens onto a semi-open reception hall which has a staircase to the side leading to the upper level whilst the lounge is located adjacent. A door to the rear of the lounge leads onto a central hallway off which a separate bedroom (No1 ) and bathroom are located either side, whilst the kitchen is located to the rear. A door from the kitchen opens onto the rear garden (noting that this has not been opened for some time and the garden itself is heavily overgrown). On the upper level, a 2nd bedroom with panoramic views towards Wigtown Bay on the horizon.

The specification includes mixed style electric heating together with mixed style windows. EPC – F. On-street parking is available.

It is fair to say the property will perhaps be of particular appeal to those clients seeking a “project” whether utilising their DIY skills or employing relevant trades to carry out upgrading works. Of broad appeal, whether as 1st Home or for the retired/semi-retired client or as a “bolt-hole”/holiday home.

The Home Report gives a clear indication of the current condition/likely works required, noting the Home Report Mortgage Value of £80,000 for the property in its current condition. Taking the aforementioned into account the property is offered for sale on a strictly “Sold as Seen” basis with no warranties/guarantees, noting the “services/utilities” appear disconnected and it would be the responsibility of the purchaser to deal with their reinstatement.

“Every picture tells a story”, so the saying goes …No 1 South Main Street is certainly presented in “Before” condition however it is only fair to reflect on its potential/wonderful location and how the “After” pictures might look. At the indicated price this is undoubtedly an excellent opportunity however please only view having taken into account the information provided here and in the Home Report. Serious potential purchasers are welcome to discuss matters in more detail with our Director/Valuer Graeme Lumsden on 01292 283606.
