This wonderful historic luxury converted 18th century former church, is located in the picturesque village of Cummertrees, on the stunning Solway Coast Heritage Trail, just a short stroll to a beautiful sandy beach.
Situated in a picturesque coastal village, this spacious, quirky and imaginatively converted 18th century church was originally commissioned by Robert the Bruce some 700 years ago. Sympathetically restored in 2015, the property makes a fantastic base for a family or group of friends looking for a more unusual holiday retreat. Perfect for a group holiday or family celebration, the house is just a mile’s stroll from a beautiful sandy beach and is ideal for walkers, cyclists, mountain bikers, golfers and nature-lovers.
Beautifully re-imagined, the property retains many features of the original church which date back to 1777. The house still has the appearance of a church, and the pulpit, lychgate and old church windows lend character and charm to the atmosphere of this quirky and elegant retreat. Elsewhere there’s a variety of more modern furnishings scattered throughout the house, and plenty of space for you to all relax and sit back. Steeped in history this wonderful light-filled getaway has been vibrantly decorated and thoughtfully furnished. With a large and elegantly designed open-plan living area and five comfortable bedrooms, it provides a great backdrop for a memorable holiday.
On entering this beautiful property, you will find the spacious and attractive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. An elegant and welcoming space, it offers a range of features including a traditional wood burner, SkyTV and iPod dock as well as the original pulpit overlooking the scene. The charming dining area features both an informal breakfast bar and a slightly more formal dining table ideal for an evening meal or celebration. The stylish kitchen and utility room are fully equipped with everything you’re likely to need including a wine cooler. Exploring the ground floor further, there are two zip-and-link twin bedrooms, which can be made into king-size rooms on request. There is also a lovely ground-floor bathroom.
Heading up to the first floor via the twisting staircase which overlooks the lychgate via a beautiful church window, you will find an additional lounge. This is an ideal space for children, with SkyTV/DVD and a PlayStation 4 console. There are three further bedrooms: a double room and two super-king-size rooms – one with an en-suite bathroom. This floor also has a family bathroom.
Stepping outside, you can unwind in the large shared garden where you can enjoy a BBQ in the charming seating area. You will also have access to the old church graveyard with its numerous ancient historic gravestones and the mausoleum of the Marquesses of Queensberry.
