A delightful, architect designed house with a magnificent elevated outlook across the surrounding countryside to the Solway Firth and, on a clear day, even the Lakeland hills beyond. Inside, the property is finished to a very high standard and offers luxuries such as 4 reception rooms, a TV in each bedroom and themed original oil paintings following the Glasgow Boys associated with the area. A large, attractive garden featuring mature trees and shrubs, patio and seating area and a 'wild' nature garden, regularly visited by small birds and red squirrels, surrounds the property.

Located approx. 1 mile from the village of Auchencairn, 7 miles from Dalbeattie and 10 miles from Kirkcudbright, the property offers a fantastic base from which to visit some of the most popular destinations in Dumfries and Galloway, whilst still enjoying a proximity to Galloway Forest and Dark Sky Park and the bustling market town of Dumfries itself. The village of Auchencairn has its own Post Office, shop and small tea room and offers seasonal local produce. Balcary Bay Hotel (2.5 miles) and The Selkirk Arms (located in Kirkcudbright) are both close to hand, offering a range of menus from bar, bistro and even fine dining.
The surrounding area is packed with activities such as hiking, cycling and sailing to keep even the most adventurous family going but is rural enough to satisfy anyone looking for solitude and to escape city life.
