A delightfully situated one and a half storey traditional detached house adjacent to the 18thC former Lochpatrick Mill. The house stands in its own spacious garden grounds in a very private and secluded location yet only ten minutes drive from the bustling market town of Castle Douglas.
Well equipped book lined and comfortably furnished with full central heating, the house makes an ideal holiday base either for exploring the rich history and hills of the surrounding area or for relaxing in the spacious and well-maintained gardens. These include a small bowling green and a separate tennis court, both available for use by holidaymakers. In addition, there is free perch and pike fishing for house guests on two small lochs a pleasant five and ten minute walk away respectively.
Served by a quiet country road, ideal for walking or cycling, the house is within only a few minutes drive of the A75 Stranraer to Carlisle trunk road. The villages of Springholm and Crocketford, both with pubs serving meals and a village shop, are within a ten minute drive. Castle Douglas, the Food Town, provides excellent shopping with a number of hotels, pubs and restaurants. The Solway coast, with its wonderful scenery and extensive sandy beaches, is within a half hour"s drive and there are a number of excellent, and in some cases testing, golf courses all within easy access including the championship links course at Southerness.
