Deeside is a spacious detached house situated within the heart of the rural village of Crossmichael. A former ‘B & B’, the property offers spacious living accommodation over ground and first floor level with the handy addition of a self-contained ‘granny flat’ which could, if desired, be used as further accommodation as part of the main house. It could also be used as a separate rental property as the present owner has done. To complement the spacious internal accommodation, the rear garden to the property is a delight. Not only is there ample outside storage, there is also a large lawned area. The property is bounded on all sides being both child and pet friendly. It also gives a good amount of privacy from neighbouring properties and allows ample space for vehicles parked off road if on street parking was less favoured. This property would be ideally suited to a family and is well worth viewing to appreciate the space and opportunity this property provides.
Crossmichael itself, is situated 3.8 miles north of Castle Douglas which is known as the ‘Food Town’. Crossmichael has a number of its own local amenities including a shop, primary school, pub and restaurant and good transport links. A range of more wide amenities including Health Centre, Secondary School, supermarkets, local butchers, cafes, leisure facilities and attractions are available in Castle Douglas, the nearest large town. Being conveniently position on the banks of Loch Ken, Crossmichael is only a short drive from Loch Ken Water-ski School and Galloway Sailing and Activity Centre. For those not keen on water-based activities there are a number of other attractions including golf course, horse riding centre, walking and bike trails in the surrounding area.
Deeside is accessed from Crossmichael Main Street. The property is an imposing traditional property in good external decorative order. The main house can be accessed directly from the Main Street itself or alternatively from the rear garden access. All carpets and blinds are included in the sale.
