Property description

10A Catherine Street is a spacious, light, upper floor flat. Being situated above ground level, it enjoys a high degree of privacy for a property which is so centrally located. To the front of the flat, the houses opposite are lower, and good views are enjoyed down Old Ford Road and to the hills beyond Gatehouse. To the rear of the property, there is a long, well kept garden and a pleasant outlook towards High Street and the Clock Tower. The flat is accessed via its own private entrance, and the impression of space and light enjoyed by this property is enhanced by the high ceilings.
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 a Health Centre. There are active sports clubs (for example Bowling, Cricket, Snooker, Tennis and Golf) and a wide variety of outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed in the area, including Sailing, Fishing, Golf, Tennis, Cycling, Bird Watching 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.
