Offered for Sale
Temple Croft is conveniently located just under a mile from the ‘Artist Town’ of Kirkcudbright and some 10 miles southwest of the ‘Food Town’ of Castle Douglas in Southwest Scotland.
Notable local architect W A MacKinnell designed and built Temple Croft for his own use in the late 1920’s and since its construction has only been home to four dedicated owners, which in itself speaks volumes for this wonderful family home. Within the current ownership Temple Croft has been sympathetically modernised to an extremely high standard with the attention to detail being second to none.
Temple Croft boasts all features for modern day living with modern style cast iron radiators and retaining some beautiful original fixtures such as the charming individual metal door knockers fixed to the bedroom doors along with the secret cupboard held within this wonderful home. The current owners have dedicated five years bringing this historical building back to life, including exceptional décor throughout.
The property is set in very good-sized mature garden grounds (about 1.366 acres) with a south facing aspect tucked away on the outskirts of a thriving harbour town in a tranquil corner of southwest Scotland renowned for its stunning scenery. Temple Croft is approached by a single track road (shared with two other properties), leading to a sweeping gravelled driveway where there is parking available for several vehicles. In addition, the property benefits from a potential secondary access from the A755, Kirkcudbright to Gatehouse Road.
The whole of Temple Croft is surrounded by its own mature garden grounds with the property approached by a sweeping gravelled driveway where parking is available for several vehicles. The garden grounds are made up of neat lawns, mature trees, including fruit trees, shrubs, flowering perennials and areas have been set aside with raised beds which have been utilised for the growing of fruit and vegetables.
There are dedicated patio’s for those summer days to enjoy alfresco dining or family and social entertaining. Given the extent of the grounds there is huge potential for some self-sufficient living. A fantastic workshop is attached to the dwellinghouse and for those wishing to extend the already bright and spacious living space, this may provide potential to do so.
In addition, the current owners have built a large, detached garage where there is ample room for at least two cars with an electric hook up point. There are two Hormann electric up an over door which can also be operated via a remote-control switch in the utility room. Next to the garage is a brick built store with an open fronted space for those dreaded wheely bins to hide. The garage also benefits from a loft above. Set to the side of the garage is a timber garden store with lean-to wood store off.
