Impressive architect designed detached coastal family home occupying an elevated site with spectacular views towards the Solway Firth and surrounding countryside. The property benefits from full double glazing, oil fired central heating, integral garage, fully enclosed private gardens, ample parking and boasts additional garden ground which leads directly onto the shore. Rockcliffe is a beautiful coastal landscape in the sheltered Urr Estuary. A network of small paths running through a mosaic of woodland, meadow and heather topped granite outcops, offer walkers fantastic scenic walks with views out to Rough Island and the Solway. The village is approximately 6 miles south of the town of Dalbeattie, which offers a variety of shops, a post office, primary and secondary schools and a health centre. The larger market town of Dumfries is approximately 20 miles north east of Rockcliffe and offers a wide range of High Street shops and supermarkets. There is a challenging 18 hole golf course nearby at Colvend, three further 18 hole courses at Dumfries and Kirkcudbright and 9 hole courses at Castle Douglas and Dalbeattie, all just a short drive away. There are endless opportunities for outdoor activities in the area including hill and coastal walks, trout, salmon and sea fishing, and there is a small but very active marina at Kippford just along the coast.
