Property description

Unique opportunity to purchase a magnificent detached Victorian house nestled in private garden grounds extending to 2.5 acres with three separate cottages.

Doonhill House is an imposing detached Victorian house nestled within 2.5 acres of private garden grounds. The property offers bright, spacious accommodation throughout whilst retaining many of its original features. Including ornate ceiling cornicing and hardwood window shutters which adds to the charm and ambience. As well as the main house, there are a total of three cottages: Two semi-detached cottages, which are in the former stable block, and a detached Gardener’s cottage which was used as a workshop. These additional properties are well placed to accommodate guests, senior members of the family who wish to be closer to their younger family or indeed they could provide additional income as holiday lets.

Accessed via a private gravel driveway which leads to the front of the property there is ample parking for a number of vehicles. The secluded and tranquil garden grounds of Doonhill House wrap around the main house; being well sheltered by the original estate wall providing wonderfully private grounds.

This delightful space is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of interesting areas well stocked with shrubs and perennial plants, providing colour all year round, as well as a sheltered patio area providing an ideal location for alfresco dining.

The unique location of Doonhill House and cottages means they are well located to access all the local amenities of the market town of Newton Stewart. This busy Galloway market town, set on the banks of the River Cree, lies in a genuinely rural area that is regarded by many as the gateway to the scenic Galloway hills. The town contains a: Museum, leisure centre, post office, cinema along with multiple banks and a wide range of shops, offices, businesses, hotels and restaurants.

The area has a wide range of sport and outdoor activities with opportunities to: Take up shooting, fish on the nearby rivers, golf and enjoy an extensive range of walks
and cycle paths.
