Glebe Cottage is a three bedroom detached bungalow enjoying a peaceful location adjacent to the ruins of Tongland Church. Its situation on Monks Way – a cul-de-sac – enhances the privacy and peacefulness of the property.
With accommodation all on one level, Glebe Cottage benefits from full oil fired central heating, full UPC double-glazing and a good sized garden. There is off-road parking and a car port, and if additional parking was needed, part of the garden runs adjacent to Monks Way and it is thought it would be possible to remove part of the hedge to create further parking.All carpets and fitted floor coverings together with all curtains and other window coverings are included in the sale.
Tongland is only around two miles from Kirkcudbright and is therefore convenient for the facilities of the town. 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” who lived in nearby Broughton House, now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. Artistic 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.

To the side of Glebe Cottage is a tarmac drive leading to a corrugated iron carport with concrete hardstanding. Around the house itself there is a concrete path which leads to a level concrete area outside the patio suitable for garden furniture. Behind the carport is an area of garden mainly laid to grass and with the graveyard adjacent. Here there are two good sized wooden sheds, octagonal greenhouse, and further “lean-to” greenhouse.
The above area of garden is separated from the main garden by a well-established hedge. The main garden slopes down from the house and is again laid to grass. The oil storage tank is situated here. This main garden is adjacent to the public road and it is thought it might be possible to form additional parking here, subject to obtaining any necessary permissions.
