Tenure: Freehold

bedroom, detached family home situated in a delightful residential area on the outskirts of Castle Douglas. The property sits in an elevated position and is not overlooked at the rear which, coupled with the extensive garden ground, gives the property a very rural feel without losing the convenience of urban living.

Amberlea is in excellent decorative order throughout and is finished to a good quality. The skirtings and internal doors are finished in Scandinavian Pine and the hall, living room and landing were re-carpeted in November 2015. All fitted carpets, floor coverings, curtains and blinds are included in the sale. Some of the bedroom furniture is to be included subject to separate negotiation. The property is in walk-in condition, is beautifully finished, and with a light, airy feel throughout, would make an ideal spacious family home. The layout of the property is well thought out and gives a good combination of entertaining areas, home study or work areas and cosy family areas.

Situated on the outskirts of town in a well established residential cul-de-sac, the property is only five minutes walk from Castle Douglas High School and a little over five minutes to Tesco supermarket and beyond to the wider amenities in Castle Douglas.
Castle Douglas is a thriving Galloway market town, lying approximately 18 miles south-west of Dumfries and enjoying an enviable range of shops and other facilities in a town now promoted as a "Food Town". The town also has a wide range of facilities including excellent primary and secondary schools, modern Health Centre, supermarkets and a thriving community run theatre, The Fullarton, nearby.

The Dumfries and Galloway Region is renowned for its beautiful countryside with rolling pastures broken by stone dykes and amenity woodland with a rugged coastline. Benefiting from the Gulf Stream, the general climate is mild and there are consequently many beautiful gardens nearby including the National Trust Gardens at Threave.
