FOR SALE BY ONLINE AUCTION THURSDAY 14TH JULY AT 9.00AM. Stunning C-Listed Victorian building with six bedrooms and three reception rooms. Incredible opportunity for a unique family home or development into historic Bed and Breakfast/Hotel (STP). Requires internal modernisation.
The property is a large two-storey house built circa 1860, with traditional stone walls and a detached stone-built workshop with log store outside. The ground floor is comprised of an entrance vestibule leading into a grand hallway with high ceilings. From the hallway there are three spacious reception rooms with fireplaces and cast iron radiators. The rear hallway has entrances from the main hallway and the adjoining reception room - accessible from this hallway is the kitchen, a shower room, a dining room and store room which could be converted to a utility area (the latter two and the hallway itself feature original flagstone floors). The staircase in the main hallway has storage underneath it, as well as the original servant bell system, which could be a notable feature if restored.
Up the stairs there is one bedroom on the mid-landing to the left, and a further five bedrooms on the first floor. The rooms are various sizes, all with high ceilings and all but one have their own wash basin. At the end of the upstairs hallway there is a long bathroom with a three-piece suite.
The property has been partially renovated, including a partially re-slated roof, new cast-iron gutters and partial double-glazing. The property sits on roughly 0.9acres of land, incudes orchard walled garden and benefits from panoramic views over Wigtown Bay.
Wigtown is a town within the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland; it's considered Scotland's 'Book Town', and the Wigtown Book Festival has grown to be the second largest book festival in Scotland in less than 25 years. The town is quiet and idyllic and popular among tourists looking for a quiet Scottish getaway.

* Generally speaking Guide Prices are provided as an indication of each seller's minimum expectation, i.e. 'The Reserve'. They are not necessarily figures which a property will sell for and may change at any time prior to the auction. Virtually every property will be offered subject to a Reserve (a figure below which the Auctioneer cannot sell the property during the auction) which we expect will be set within the Guide Range or no more than 10% above a single figure Guide.
By setting a proxy bid, the system will automatically bid on your behalf to maintain your position as the highest bidder, up to your proxy bid amount. If you are outbid, you will be notified via email so you can opt to increase your bid if you so choose.
If two of more users place identical bids, the bid that was placed first takes precedence, and this includes proxy bids.
Another bidder placed an automatic proxy bid greater or equal to the bid you have just placed. You will need to bid again to stand a chance of winning.
