The design of Chapel Rossan echoes its ecclesiastical name. Although the house itself wasn’t actually a chapel, one did stand on Chapel Rossan Bay headland between 600 and 1100 AD, but this property dates back to the 19th century and has been category B listed.

Subsequent extensions and modernisation has turned the house into an excellent family property with most of the principal rooms overlooking the Bay and the hills and valleys of Wigtownshire beyond.

Accommodation comprises entrance hall, library, sitting room, drawing room, dining room, kitchen and three bedrooms upstairs; in the south wing extension are a garden room, kitchen and a further three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor as well as a bespoke conservatory.

Formal gardens surround the house and are beautifully tended and stocked with a variety of colourful trees and shrubs. A burn runs throughout the garden into a series of mill ponds which run down to the beach below – gardens and grounds amount to around four acres.

Notably, the property also comes with high speed broadband, a sought-after feature unusual for the area.

Chapel Rossan is situated close to the village of Ardwell which has a church and a marine shop, and three miles from Sandhead which has a range of local amenities including a primary school and a post office and Stranraer is just ten miles for further amenities.

The guide price is £700,000. For further information please contact CKD Galbraith on 01556 505 346 or visit www.ckdgalbraith.co.uk.
