Property description

Torwilkie is a wonderful country property located in the heart of the Glenkens but convenient for access to all local amenities. This is an ideal lifestyle property which would be attractive for a variety of purchasers and uses; those who own horses/livestock or those who wish to become self-sufficient or simply those who want to
enjoy everything the countryside has to offer.

The house itself offers well proportioned; light and bright accommodation with all rooms having windows overlooking the rear garden and grazing land that belongs to Torwilkie and beyond to the village of Balmacllean.
The detached stone built former dairy byre at the far end of the garden is in good condition and could be used as a barn or stables. Alternatively, conversion of this outbuilding (subject to Local Authority Consents) could provide the opportunity togenerate an income from renting this out as a holiday rental or as a self-containedhome for other members of the family. (It is understood that this building has previously had planning consent for conversion)
Balmaclellan is an interesting village, quietly placed off the Kenbridge – Corsock Road so is convenient for the main A713 running between Ayr and Castle Douglas.

The main local centre of Castle Douglas is little more than 20 minutes by car. Dumfries and Ayr are similarly easily accessible. New Galloway is less than 2 miles from Balmaclellan and Dalry is less than four miles from Torwilkie. Between them they have a reasonable range of local services including general grocery shops, hotels
and restaurants. Dalry has a senior and primary school and New Galloway a primary school. New Galloway has a nine-hole golf course, a modern medical practice and the purpose built “CatStrand” of the Glenkens Community Arts Trust initiative offers an excellent range of community activity and artistic and musical performances.
Balmaclellan itself has an excellent shop and is visited by a mobile Bank and Post Office. There is a Post Office in nearby New Galloway. The Village Hall in Balmaclellan enjoys a number of community activities. The surrounding area offers excellent walking and other rural pursuits.

Outside
Outside there is a large gravel driveway with parking for several cars. The property is accessed via a tarmac track off the A712 between Balmaclellan and Corsock. There are gravel paths around the property with mature shrubs and lawn to the right. The garden faces west towards Balmaclellan overlooking the land which belongs to the
property. The 10 acres begins from the garden hedge down to the first gate and wraps round to the east of the property along the access track to Torwilkie.

There are two storage cupboards accessed to the rear and side of Torwilkie which have been used by the current owners as storage for logs and garden equipment. There is additional storage underneath the sunroom.

Stone Byre
There is a large stone byre with power and water which is split into three sections located at the far end of the garden which is accessed by way of a grass access track from the driveway. It is understood that the previous owners had had Planning Consent to convert this into a dwelling house so this may be something that could
potentially be developed subject to local Planning consents. Alternatively, this building would be ideal as a garden office / artist’s studio or stable and tack room and feed room.
