Coastal with a Modern Twist
Hewats are delighted to present to the market “Glenholm” a deceptively spacious and well-presented modern and contemporary detached split level 4 bedroomed dwelling with well-appointed and versatile accommodation, ideal for both the family buyer or those looking to downsize. This property has recently been upgraded by the current owners to include a new state of the art Kitchen, family Shower Room and Master En-Suite.
The lower ground floor offers the potential along with a possible garage conversion to create a self-contained unit for family use or holiday accommodation by obtaining the appropriate consents.
Glenholm sits within a 1/3 of an acre corner plot in an elevated position, located within a quiet cul-de-sac in the much sought after sailing village of Kippford. It is approached via a tarmac driveway which leads to the front of the property and gives direct access to the double Garage and offers ample parking for several cars.
The garden grounds are situated to the front, side and rear and over the years have provided a wide range of mature and young trees along with a variety of plants and flowering shrubs. The garden has been designed to offer several seating areas, in particular, the decking area to the front which allows you to enjoy the evening sun, making it a delightful outdoor alfresco dining space.
An outdoor water tap is available along with several external power sockets, for a range of uses including garden maintenance.
Running along the rear of the property is a track that leads to a woodland area, thus allowing you to escape into the peace of the surrounding landscape and offering a perfect way to alleviate stress with the landscapes boasting mature trees and abundance of wildlife that awaits you. It is also just a short walk from a further coastal walk to Rockcliffe that allows you to make the most of the surrounding coastal views.
The accommodation extends to 193m2 and comprises a bright and airy vestibule that leads through to a well-proportioned Hallway that gives you a real flavour and taste of what the property has to offer. A modern, fresh and contemporary design and a feeling of opulence. Glenholm is doubled glazed throughout, the Lounge has a Clearview log burner, a lovely addition for those cool nights and winter evenings, oil central heating is provided as well as individual underfloor heating within the Family and Master Bathrooms.
The open plan Dining Room has a chique and contemporary feel with glamorous pendant lighting and a large picture window to rear with views down towards the nearby Sailing Club and local Marina.
Leading from the Dining Room is the home’s formal Lounge which provides space for a substantial sofa suite, but still allowing the room to function and offer a great deal of flexibility for entertaining and relaxing. The double aspect windows give way to views towards the Galloway Hills in the distance and allows the natural light to flood in. The cherrywood flooring provides a warmth to the room and the tasteful décor, along with candelabra light fitting and log burner, finishes the room off to a high standard.
The newly fitted “Astral Blue” state of the art Kitchen comes with a range of stylish base and wall units, drawer and larder units, “Ice Radius” composite worktop, along with an induction hob, commercial extractor hood, double oven and integrated individual fridge and freezer. A glass balcony is accessed from the Kitchen and is the main focal point of the property.
The Master Suite is generous in size, accommodating a spacious master Bathroom which has recently been refitted and modernised. The bedroom has a view to the front overlooking the alfresco dining area. The built-in wardrobes provide ample storage space with double rails, shelving and mirrored doors. The wall mounted T.V. is a bonus to any Master Bedroom. Note: The T.V. is excluded from the sale.
The further three bedrooms are generous in size and again tastefully decorated with contemporary finishes.
The lower ground floor accommodation comprises access to the double garage (ripe for conversion), a spacious and versatile Utility Room, modern and bright Shower Room and relaxing Sitting Room with double French doors that lead to the outdoor lower ground patio area. The use of the Sitting Room can easily be easily transformed to an additional Bedroom.
