Property description

21 High Street is a substantial terraced town house, built of granite and whinstone and dating back to the end of the 18th century; its history mirrors that of Gatehouse itself with early ownership including a mason, a weaver, a cartwright and a baker. The property offers considerably more accommodation than is apparent from the street, a converted former bakery having been incorporated into the accommodation already available and enhancing significantly the property's attractions. With 5 bedrooms and 3 living rooms, plus dining kitchen, the property offers spacious and flexible accommodation and a delightful private garden. The property benefits from good natural light and good-sized, well-proportioned rooms throughout.

Since purchasing in 2008, the present owners have had considerable work carried out to the house including: Re-wiring of the whole property; the installation of a new combi gas boiler; re-slating of the roof to the rear section of the property; re-roofing the flat roofs of the dining room, en-suite ground floor shower room and the external brick built store; replacement hardwood windows in the dining room and the en-suite shower room; complete re-pointing of the front of the building and the chimneys.

All carpets and fitted floor coverings are included in the sale.

Gatehouse of Fleet is an active community and benefits from many local amenities, such as a primary school, Health Centre, pharmacy, shops, solicitors and accountants, library and hotels. The wider area includes many beautiful sandy beaches and rocky coves within easy reach, and dramatic inland scenery, with magnificent hills, glens, lochs and woodland. In Gatehouse there are active sports clubs (e.g, bowling, snooker, golf and tennis) and a wide variety of outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed in the area, including sailing, golf, cycling, hill walking and horse-riding. The area is rich in wildlife and the property is a few minutes' walk from the Cally Woods section of the Galloway Forest Park which is the UK's first designated Dark Sky Park. The Bakehouse, the Mill on the Fleet and the Parish Church host varied annual cultural programmes.

At the end of the garden is a useful brick built outbuilding with a pyramid shaped pitched roof, and two wooden sheds.
