Former Parish Church converted to an attractive detached six/seven bedroom dwelling - whilst the conversion is modern the character of the traditional building is maintained. Well-proportioned accommodation throughout. Double glazing throughout. Commands an elevated position with views to the surrounding rural countryside. Close proximity to Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas and Gatehouse Tarff Church is a former rural parish Church which has been converted to a modern dwelling whilst retaining its original character. This well presented detached property offers a two storey dwelling in the former Church itself, and single storey accommodation in the former "Sunday School". The Church has been very cleverly converted to allow the property to either be used as one property, or through inter connecting doors between Church and former Sunday School is capable of individual living either as a "granny annex" or holiday accommodation. With the proportions of a former Church, this property has used the space well creating an excellent balance between light, airy and generously proportioned spaces without losing the feel of a home. The property is tastefully decorated in a modern style but makes a feature of the character of the property where possible. There are a few (Boiler room, Bedroom 2, Wash room) areas which are left for a purchaser to finish and choose their use as preferred. Externally the grounds are laid to lawn and there is a section of paddock which is partially fenced off and can be used either separately or included as part of the new garden grounds. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the accommodation offered in this beautiful formal Church. Tarff Church commands an elevated position with views to the surrounding countryside and is conveniently close to Twynholm which provides a Primary School, Church, Garage, Village Hall and rural Hotels. The property is just off the A75 euro route with good links to all surrounding towns, villages and further afield east and west to Stranraer or towards the motorway north and south. Twynholm village is 2 miles. Castle Douglas to the east is approximately 7 miles. Gatehouse of Fleet to the west is approximately 7 miles. Kirkcudbright is approximately 4 miles Further facilities are available in Kirkcudbright, which is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. Of historic and architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by artists it was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of the "Glasgow Boys". Kirkcudbright is popular with tourists attracted by the well renowned galleries and maintains a flourishing colony of artists and craft workers which has led to it being called the "Artists' Town". Kirkcudbright enjoys a wide variety of mainly family owned shops, pubs, hotels and restaurants whilst offering a wide range of facilities including its own golf course, marina, swimming pool and an active summer festivities programme including its own jazz festival and tattoo. The South West of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline with a good range of outdoor activities easily available for those interested in hill walking, bird watching, fishing, mountain biking, water sports and of course golf. The Solway is also a popular yachting destination. Tarff Church sits in its own grounds which is entirely laid to lawn with some mature perimeter plantation. A gravel driveway leads from the access road sweeping in front of the property giving ample space for off road parking. The outside space is left to easy maintenance at present but there is scope for landscaping as preferred.
