Millbank Cottage South is an attractive property with a secluded feel, albeit that it is located within a few short minutes’ walk from the centre of Kirkcudbright. The cottage has been recently modernised, with the addition of a brand new Howdens fitted kitchen suite and new carpeting and flooring throughout. This would be a lovely first property for a young family, with a pretty, though manageable garden, or, perhaps, a holiday home for those from further afield. Indeed, Millbank Cottage South would also represent a highly marketable rental property for those with an investment in mind.
The harbour town of Kirkcudbright is known as Scotland’s “Artists’ Town” and was particularly popular with the ‘Glasgow Boys’ (some of whom lived in Kirkcudbright) around 1900. It is a very active, friendly community and most visitors to the town are surprised at the variety and number of activities and events being held. The property is in the heart of Kirkcudbright’s conservation area and enjoys an excellent elevated outlook over the town’s gardens towards the Harbour Square and beyond.
