Greenhead House is an attractive Category C Listed family home which dates from the Georgian period with later additions. The property commands an elevated position at the top of Greenhead Brae, New Galloway. This property has all the charm of a characterful Town House offering accommodation over three levels and boasting many typical period features such as high ceilings, ornate cornicing, fireplaces and window shutters. Located just off New Galloway High Street and thus giving easy access to the town’s amenities, Greenhead House has a bright and airy feel to it within good sized private attractive gardens and spectacular views over the village and the surrounding countryside. The property is an ideal family home but could also lend itself to being a guesthouse or B & B if desired.
Conveniently positioned close to all local amenities within New Galloway itself which include modern doctors’ surgery, post office, shop, public houses, tearoom, a 9 hole golf course and several active community attractions including the renowned arts centre ‘Catstrand’.
The southwest of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. To the west of New Galloway lies Galloway Forest Park, the largest forest park in Britain covering 774 square kilometres of forested hills, wild and rugged moorland and numerous lochs. Galloway Forest Park is designated as the fourth Dark Sky Park in the world and the first in the UK. It is a vast and beautiful area crisscrossed by waymarked Forestry Commission trails, cycle routes and longer routes such as the Southern Upland Way. Ideally located to take advantage of a number of outdoor pursuits and leisure activities including Loch Ken Water Sports nearby.

To the left hand side of the rising shared access drive there is a very private, wild and low walled orchard garden and pond which gives significant extra seclusion to the front of the property. This continues to function as an orchard with fruit trees, plum and several varieties of apple including Cooking Apple and Cox as well as a walnut tree. The modern garage has been built to the side of the property with a gravelled driveway and additional parking. The rear gardens have been thoughtfully landscaped with lawns interspersed with mature and ornamental shrubs and trees, fruit bushes and raised beds. It has a wide mix of flowering plants and mature shrubs. There is a large patio area to the rear for outside dining and entertaining. Possibly the most charming part of the garden is the burn which runs down the south side and has to one side, a very quaint Victorian former laundry which historically, was used as the village wash house. The building is accessed by large stone slabs laid over the burn itself.
