Craigleys is a detached villa enjoying an elevated position at the top of the market town of Newton Stewart with superb panoramic views over the town to the Galloway Hills to the north, Cairnsmore of Fleet to the east, and the Cree Estuary to the south. The property was designed in 1960 by architects Hill, McDonald & Potter (now Robert Potter & Partners), and subsequently extended by the same architects in 1977, 1990 and 1997. Internally the quality features include window frames of hardwood or Crittal-Hope aluminium sliders, mahogany panelled or heavy 30 minute fire retard doors, mahogany skirtings and facings, and the staircase and landing are mixed hardwood. All ceilings have plaster covings. There is a conservatory and large roof terrace over the garage with access from the house and also by an external hardwood staircase. The landscaped garden extends to approximately one third of an acre, and there is an integral double garage and ample off-road parking. This is an elegant family home which, subject to the relative permissions being obtained, would have excellent potential as a Guest House.
