Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in approximately 1900 as the manager's house for the local Creamery, the property sits off what had been the Old Military Road and has benefited greatly from improvements made many years ago when the A75 was re-routed to the north of the property. Consequently, the property is now served almost exclusively by a stretch of public highway which gives easy access to the A75 nearby.

The property itself is in excellent decorative order providing flexible family accommodation with an almost self-contained "Granny Flat" which could potentially be used for bed and breakfast or holiday let accommodation whilst retaining the remainder of the accommodation as a good sized and well-appointed family home.

The gardens have been tastefully landscaped with a wide range of perennials and shrubs providing a broad mix of colour complemented by mature shrubs and trees which provide screening and shelter in a rural location.
