Property Summary

"Strathken" and its charming Attached Cottage offer those seeking true flexibility the rare opportunity to acquire a Unique Home which can serve as a substantial Family Residence or one which offers the option to use each property individually.

The present owners have extensively refurbished the property at substantial expense creating the fabulous Family Home that we see with "Strathken" whilst the Attached Cottage has been carefully re-developed to provide, in this instance, the opportunity to utilise as a successful Holiday Cottage (see Visitor Book comments).

Although The Cottage has its own independent entrance/garden/kitchen etc, it is linked internally and can easily be brought back into the main accommodation creating a 6 Bedroom Home with multiple public rooms. Its flexibility will also appeal to the buyer perhaps seeking "Granny" style accommodation which combines security/independence or for those wishing to work from home or have independent "teenager" accommodation.

Internal viewing of Strathken reveals a most appealing home of 7/8 main Apartments over 2 levels which has been extensively refurbished (only requiring minor finishing). In particular the well proportioned accommodation comprises on ground floor, reception hall, attractive lounge (featuring solid fuel fire) and separate dining room, a "dream" open-plan living/dining/kitchen which is simply breathtaking and demands attention with its scale/extensive glazing/views, a useful utility room & "downstairs" wc are also provided and there is internal access to/from The Cottage (via the utility).

Strathken's specification includes both oil central heating and double glazing. EPC - D. Mature private gardens are located to the rear, these enjoying countryside views. To the front the property enjoys wonderful panoramic countryside views. A private driveway provides off-road parking.

The Cottage is superbly presented (as one can read from the "glowing" Visitor Book comments) with its own road front entrance whilst a patio door to the rear opens onto its own private garden area, with feature "Hot Tub". In particular the accommodation comprises on ground floor, reception hall with very stylish bathroom off, charming lounge/dining with solid fuel fire, semi-open plan kitchen adjacent, whilst on upper level, 2 delightful double bedrooms with wonderful elevated open countryside views to the front.

The Cottage's specification includes both oil central heating and double glazing. EPC - to be confirmed. As noted there is a private garden area which is separated from the adjoining Strathken.

Dumfries & Galloway is picturesque in terms of its rolling countryside, the A75 serving as its main transport link south & north. Strathken itself By Crossmichael, and is approx' 4.5 miles from Castle Douglas which is very popular, being notable as a "Food Town" whilst the picturesque small harbour town of Kirkcudbright is particularly appealing, approx' 11 miles.

In our view an excellent opportunity to acquire a Unique Home with true flexibility. Internal Viewing will confirm its appeal and particular highlights such as the eyecatching living/dining/kitchen of Strathken whilst the most appealing Cottage offers flexible "additional" accommodation, or the opportunity to secure additional income from an easily managed attached property which is literally "next door".
