The Old Barn is a beautifully converted former agricultural barn situated at Cannee just on the outskirts of the harbour “Artists” town of Kirkcudbright. This linked property has been sympathetically converted to couple the exterior of a traditional stone barn with the convenience of modern living internally. The property offers spacious accommodation over 2 floors with one half level with all main reception rooms and the master bedroom taking full advantage of the uninterrupted panoramic views to the spectacular countryside in which this property sits. There are views to the hills of Cairnharrow and Cairnsmore of Fleet across open countryside and out towards the harbour town of Kirkcudbright and as the eye travels south it follows the Dee Estuary as it makes the way to the Solway. The property is in walk in condition and tastefully decorated throughout and is complemented by the garden ground which makes for easy outside/inside living. Currently a full time residence, this property would also be an ideal buy-to-let investment or holiday let/home. This property is a must see!
