This second floor flat is situated above 11 St. Mary Street, opposite the Church. Whilst it is therefore very convenient for the shops and other amenities of Kirkcudbright, it enjoys a peaceful location with an outlook to Hope Dunbar Park and the Barrhill Woods to the rear; whilst to the front the outlook is across the Church grounds to the Dee Estuary.
The flat itself is accessed from Mews Lane; the peaceful road running parallel with St. Mary Street, and it enjoys the benefit of a garage and small garden. It has well proportioned rooms, good built-in storage, and benefits from uPVC double glazing and gas central heating. In close proximity is the former Town Hall which is being converted to an Art Gallery.
All carpets and fitted floor coverings together with all curtains and other window coverings are included in the sale.
Kirkcudbright is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. The town itself is of historic and architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys”. This tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers which has led to Kirkcudbright being named the “Artists’ Town”.
The southwest of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers and of course golf. The Solway is also a popular yachting destination and Scotland’s only Blue Flag Marina is only a short walk away.
Accessing the flat.
From St. Mary Street go down Church Place which runs between the former Town Hall and the bowling green and at the end turn left. After 50 metres go left and you will have a brick wall on your left and a row of garages on your right. The final garage, the one closest to the flats, is the one for 3 Mews Lane. Continue through the gate at the end of the concrete area you are walking over and across the garden which belongs to the ground floor flat. Straight ahead is a porch, which is shared in common with the proprietors of the first floor flat, and then an obscure glazed door leads to a shared stair, and there is an understairs cupboard for shared use with the proprietors of the first floor flat.
