Hillcrest is a well proportioned 3 bedroomed bungalow in the popular residential development of Ramsay Wood approximately 1 mile from Gatehouse of Fleet. The properties here generally benefit from sizeable well established gardens and therefore enjoy a good degree of privacy.
The original accommodation at Hillcrest has been considerably enhanced by the addition of the lovely conservatory, accessible from the living room. The house sits in a well-established garden with fruit bushes, space for vegetable growing and well stocked flower beds. The rear garden is steep but has been well planned and planted for easy maintenance and has a network of paths running up the slope.
The property benefits from double glazing throughout, electric heating and a wood burning stove in the living room.
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. There are active sports clubs (for example bowling, snooker, tennis and golf) and a wide variety of outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed in the area, including sailing, fishing, golf, tennis, cycling and hill walking.
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.
