1 Bakers Dozen is a three bedroomed bungalow enjoying generous accommodation. It benefits from a good sized sitting room, separate dining room, conservatory, large kitchen, and utility room. There are 3 bedrooms all of a good size. One of these is en-suite and the bathroom can be accessed directly from the hall or from one of the other bedrooms.
The house sits in a level garden and behind the garden are the grounds of Gatehouse Primary School. Bakers Dozen itself is a cul-de-sac so there is no through traffic, and it is convenient for the amenities of Gatehouse of Fleet. The house benefits from full wooden double glazing, full gas central heating, and has solar panels on the roof. It is in need of general re-decoration and many purchaser will choose to replace the kitchen and/or bathroom fittings, and it is priced accordingly.
Gatehouse of Fleet is an active community and benefits from many local amenities, such as a primary school, shops, Solicitors and accountants offices, hotels, library and Health Centre. Within the wider area, there are many beautiful sandy beaches and rocky coves within easy reach, and equally dramatic inland scenery, with magnificent hills, glens, and lochs.
Within Gatehouse there are active sports clubs (for example bowling, snooker and golf) and a wide variety of outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed in the area, including sailing, fishing, golf, cycling and hill walking.
