The property

A beautifully renovated Georgian townhouse dating from 1801, in the heart of the coastal artists' town of Kirkcudbright, on the north Solway shore.

Refurbished and decorated to a high standard, the property boasts a bespoke country kitchen with marble worktops and beautifully designed bedrooms, two with king-size beds.

About the location

KIRKCUDBRIGHT

Dumfries 25 miles.

The historic and picturesque town of Kirkcudbright sits on the banks of the tidal waters of the River Dee, on the north Solway shore. Established as a Royal burgh in 1455, giving it status to trade with ports outside Scotland, Kirkcudbright has always been supported by a busy fishing trade and is home to a blue flag marina. Behind this working harbour, its wide streets and pastel coloured houses, a mix of Georgian villas and Victorian town houses, make for a very attractive town centre, complete with ruined McLellan's Castle. Also worth a visit is the very interesting Stewartry Museum, housing a collection of assorted items representing the life and times on the Solway coast. Kirkcudbright is also known as the artists' town, established by Edward Hornel in the late nineteenth century and still the case today, with a fine collection of art galleries, crafts, cafés and antique shops. The area offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere with attractive coastal landscapes and plenty to offer the whole family.

Note: Property suitable for a maximum of 7 people (plus one infant or child under 12).
