The Old Church Hall,The Stables and Manse Cottage

The property is situated in a delightful rural setting with the dwellings enjoying south facing view across surrounding farmland. The property is about 1 mile south of Sandhead which in turn is located on the shores of Luce Bay. The town of Stranraer is about 8 miles north from the property. We understand that the Old Church formerly served as the parish church for the village of Sandhead up until the time a new church was constructed within the village.

The three dwellings are known as: The Old Church Hall, The Stables and Manse Cottage. The Old Church Hall,The Stables and Manse Cottage are for sale at guide price of £235,000 and The Old Church for sale at guide price of £50,000. The Old Church Hall comprises an entrance porch; hall; 2 bedrooms one which has an en-suite shower room; large dining kitchen with double height ceiling; very spacious sitting room with double height ceiling and multi fuel stove; bathroom with wc, wash hand basin and bath. At lower ground level and sited underneath The Old Church Hall is The Stables which is configured as follows: entrance porch; large living room; 2 bedrooms; bathroom with wc, wash hand basin and bath with electric shower over; kitchen. Manse Cottage affords an entrance porch; living room cum kitchen while on the upper floor is a bedroom and bathroom with wc, wash hand basin and bath with electric shower over.

The Old Church itself is located at the end of the garden, the garden separating the dwellings from the Old Church. The Old Church is of stone construction and is of three bay formation albeit two of the bays are no longer under roof. The bay which is roofed provides excellent space for use as garage and workshop and is presently configured in such a way as to provide floor space at first floor level. The former church has a gross internal floor area of approximately 2500ft². We are advised that our client at one point had planning consent for conversion of the former church but that consent has now lapsed.

A super locality in which to live, this property affords great possibilities to the life style mover. The property offers potential to operate a business and there is ample living space for an extended family. A holiday lettings enterprise would be perfectly suited particularly given that our client already offers Manse Cottage as a holiday let. The Old Church has scope for use as a work shop, studio or perhaps even a gallery.
