In a stunning coastal location, Old Port Store is a charming and most distinctive detached home with its origins dating from circa 1820. The house is Category B listed by Historic Scotland and is situated about 200 yards from the shores of Luce Bay amidst beautiful rural surroundings. From the garden and the west side of the house there are wonderful views across the bay. The house was originally a grain store serving the long since gone harbour at Stairhaven, and has been converted into a distinctive three-storey holiday home, with the exterior having changed very little over the years. Ideal for families, couples or groups, the house is arranged over three floors with four en-suite bedrooms. A particularly attractive feature of this beautiful property is the impressive living room with a picture bay window to Luce Bay, and a large dining kitchen. This truly is a house of character where the traditional stone exterior marries with the well-proportioned interior. The Old Port Store is perfectly placed for easy access to many of the attractions that this corner of Wigtownshire offers, including Mull of Galloway, beautiful gardens typified by Logan Botanic Gardens and Castle Kennedy Gardens. The Galloway Forest offers exceptional walking and cycling and has been designated the first Dark Sky Park outside the USA. There are many beautiful coastal walks to be enjoyed, stone circles and ancient ruins and an RSPB reserve. There are other sporting opportunities such as trout and salmon fishing on the numerous local lochs. Sea angling is available from both the rocks along the coastline as well as by boat. Beach 200 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
