Merrick Farmhouse

Merrick Farmhouse is a charming detached Edwardian house standing in delightful established grounds which in turn extend to about an acre.

The house enjoys a south facing aspect and the principal areas of garden lie to the east and west sides of the house.

The house is situated amidst pretty rural surroundings on the outskirts of the picture postcard coastal village of Portpatrick

. Built circa 1903 the house is constructed of brick under a pitched roof clad with slate. The house is deceptively spacious and affords an extremely light and airy interior providing accommodation arranged over 2 floors consisting of: Ground Floor: Entrance Vestibule; Hall comprising elegant staircase; Sitting Room with bay window, wood burning stove and door through to; Conservatory with delightful westerly aspects across garden; Dining Room; Living Room; Dining Kitchen fitted with bespoke handmade cabinets; Rear Hall with large cupboard off; Cloakroom with wc and wash hand basin; Pantry. Upper Floor: at mezzanine level Bedroom and Bathroom fitted with a white suite comprising wc, wash hand basin and bath; First Floor: Master Bedroom with en-suite Shower Room; 3 further bedrooms, 2 of which are doubles

The house is double glazed and central heating is by way of oil.

The garden frames this characterful house perfectly. The garden is beautifully established and is home to a variety of perennials. Our clients have adopted an informal look for the garden and have successfully created a number of attractive spaces and have also made a feature of a burn which meanders through the garden along its northern edge. At various points along the burn our clients have formed sheltered sitting areas and timber footbridges which cross the burn.

In addition to the garden there is a large level gravelled space affording ample parking.

There is a paved terrace at the immediate rear of the conservatory and here there are pleasant outlooks across the garden on the west side of the house and also to farmland and a farm lying to the north.

The property also provides a variety of very useful outbuildings comprising : a garage, timber sheds, purpose built kennelling although used by our clients at present as a log store and an extremely well appointed workshop fitted with light and power

Merrick Farmhouse is very well presented and the Home Report shows that the house is in good heart. The interior of the house is nicely decorated in a neutral palette throughout. This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a delightful period property in the Wigtownshire countryside.
