The Old Post House is a spacious terraced former Post House situated within the rural village of New Galloway. The property is in need of renovation but offers ample accommodation for any prospective purchaser.
The house itself is complemented by a large garden mainly laid to lawn, mature shrubbery and bordered flower beds. There is a charming outhouse in the garden previously used by the present owner as an Art Studio which gives access direct to the garden. The property is close to local amenities including the village shop, current Post Office and a number of tearooms/cafes.
New Galloway itself is conveniently positioned with its own amenities and is further supplemented by wider amenities available in Dalry to the north and Castle Douglas to the south, some 14 miles away.
New Galloway has its own Primary School, Doctors’ Surgery and active community attractions including the Catstrand, the Smiddy, local shop, local pubs and local post office. The village is also well served by public transport links north of Dalry and beyond to Ayr and to the south to Castle Douglas. Dalry has a Secondary School which is linked to Castle Douglas High School for pupils advancing beyond 4th year.
