Knapping Knowes is situated about 7 miles from the town of Dalbeattie and about 14 miles from the regional centre of Dumfries.

Knapping Knowes is of traditional granite construction, nestled within the surrounding countryside. The property has been in the same ownership for 50 years and has been utilised as a yearly holiday retreat. Knapping Knowes is a completely off-grid property with a small generator for lighting and power tools, if required. It should be noted that there is no internet access and limited signal for roaming of data. The current owners have carried out very few changes to the property over the years and have enjoyed the simplicity along with the peaceful location of Knapping Knowes. The square footage of the property amounts to about 1400 square feet and is made up of a sitting room / kitchen / diner, double bedroom, WC and a hobby room in the attic space. All items within the cottage are included within the sale along with the wood contained in the lean-to store at the rear of the cottage.

This charming cottage is surrounded by its own garden grounds bound by traditional dry-stone dykes. A useful stone-built store attached to the rear of the cottage offers dry storage and could indeed have some development potential, as could the further attic space, however, any interested party wishing to pursue this would need to make their own enquiries with Dumfries & Galloway Council.

Knapping Knowes is located close to the Southwick coast, which is a popular tourist destination lying within close proximity to the communities of Colvend Sandyhills, Rockcliffe and Kippford. There are many artists and crafts people within the area with the well-known artist town of Kirkcudbright within easy driving distance. Kippford, affectionately known as ‘The Scottish Riviera’, is a popular tourist destination and particularly popular with yachtsmen utilising its safe anchorage at the marina.

HOME REPORT
Given that the property does not have a fully functioning bathroom with very limited fixtures within the kitchen, there is no requirement for the sellers to produce a Home Report.
