Gap on the Move



Craiginfinny is an impressive detached house situated amidst striking rural and coastal surroundings on the South Rhins Peninsula close to the Mull of Galloway, Scotland’s most southerly point. The house stands within a generous, gently sloping site from where it commands a south easterly aspect across surrounding farmland towards Luce Bay and beyond to the Galloway Hills, Solway and Cumbrian coasts and Isle of Man. This is a superb family home that equally lends itself as a bespoke Bed & Breakfast opportunity ideally suited to those looking for a lifestyle change.

Built approximately 10 years ago Craiginfinny is a substantial house extending to about 3153 ft². The interior of the house is arranged over ground, first floor and lower ground floor levels. The house is superbly appointed with skirtings and architraves, doors and main floor areas in solid American white oak. Central heating is by way of oil and windows are double glazed in uPVC casements.

The house is entered by way of a vestibule which is located on the west elevation. From the vestibule there is access to the attractive oak floored reception hallway where, as its focal point, is a stair with oak balustrade to the accomodation on the first floor. From the hall there is access to the sitting room, dining kitchen, study and to a further hallway which connects through to the bedrooms on the ground floor. There is a study off the main hall, this with a southerly aspect. The room could equally be utilised as a further bedroom if so required. The sitting room is on the eastward side of the house. This is a spectacular space with two sets of sliding glass doors onto a timber deck. The fine south easterly views can well be enjoyed from this principle room. The dining kitchen is light and airy equipped with cabinets extending at base level, slate tiled floor and with ample space within the kitchen for family dining. The kitchen enjoys a dual aspect west and north. From the kitchen there is a door off connecting to a utility room where the oil central heating boiler is located and also where there is a second stair case affording access to the lower ground floor. Completing the accomodation on the ground floor is a shower room and 3 bedrooms, one of whcih has en suite shower room and a dressing room. Moving upstairs one alights in the large living room where again south easterly aspects can be savoured. This room has sliding glass door onto a timber decked area. From the living room there is access off to the master bedroom and guest bedroom. The master bedroom enjoys a south easterly aspect and is equipped with a built in wardrobe and also a storage cupboard which extends over the stair. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room. The guest bedroom has a northerly outlook and it too has fitted wardrobes and an en suite showerroom. At lower ground floor level there is a large workshop and this space would easily afford garaging perhaps following a slight modification of the main doors to afford vehicular access. At the foot of the stairs coming down from the utility room to the workshop area is a w.c and washhand basin.

Craiginfinny’s well kept grounds mostly comprise sweeping lawns which extend to the south and eastward sides of the house. Extending along the south side of the grounds is a landscaped space fashioned in such a way as to incorporate drystane walls, steps and gravelled areas. Double timber gates open on to a concrete drive which in turn frames the house along its west and south sides and finsihing at the east side of the house where parking is afforded.
