No’ 4 Hayfield is a thoroughly charming traditional stone-built cottage

No’ 4 Hayfield occupies an elevated site with open views to the rear across the surrounding countryside.

The end-terrace home is currently on the market for offers over £140,000 from Threave Rural.

The current owners have sympathetically modernised to an extremely high standard incorporating all facilities for modern day family living, yet retaining the character and charm of the cottage.

Some of the improvements include double glazing throughout, internal oak doors, new kitchen and bathroom.

The slate roofed dwelling is entered through a front entrance porch with stone flag floor.

The kitchen contains fitted floor and wall units,stone flag flooring with underfloor heating, Belfast type sink and a composite stable door to the garden grounds.

In the lounge can be found a feature fireplace with the potential to install a wood burning stove.

There are two double bedrooms, one of which also has a feature fireplace with potential to install a wood burning stove and a built-in cupboard.

The bathroom has a range of modern sanitary ware, standalone shower enclosure, fully tiled walls and stone flag flooring with underfloor heating.

Outside there are large garden grounds to the rear of the dwelling, which are mainly laid down with lawned areas.

An area is fenced off which would be perfect for housing small animals or indeed development for some self-sufficient living.

There is off-road parking to the front of the property and also a useful brick-built lean-to storage shed to the rear.

Auldgirth has a shop, village hall and the Auldgirth Inn, which has recently undergone major refurbishment is only a short walk away.
