Mansion House Near Stranraer
Category B-listed Chapel Rossan dates to circa 1848 and is so called as in the period 600-1100 AD it is believed a small chapel once stood on the site.

This elegant villa set adjacent to the beach and Luce Bay, has possibly the finest position in the Rhins peninsula of Galloway and the 3.9 acres of mature, well stocked gardens benefit from the favourable micro-climate created by the Gulf Stream. The gardens boast a variety of colourful and scented garden shrubs and trees and were once part of Logan Estates as were the (now independent and famous) Logan Botanical Gardens.

The property offers the possibility of creating a second dwelling house in the paddock area (STPP) as there is a secondary entrance to the grounds. A great way to offset some of the purchase costs.

The house boasts a number of unusual features including cylindrical chimneys, pointed-arched Y-traceried windows and studded door to the front elevation.

There is six bedrooms (four en suite), a library, sitting room, drawing room, dining room, kitchen, garden room, conservatory, second kitchen and family bathroom. The property has been well maintained and the accommodation is flexible with the possibility of creating a self contained three bedroom apartment.

Galloway Forest Park in nearby Newton Stewart has been awarded the status of being the first Dark Sky Park in the UK, and although this is a rural and unspoilt area, it is still keeping up with the times - anyone working from home may be interested to know that there is a high speed BT broadband connection, with download speeds often averaging 6 to 7.5 Mbps!
