A delightful 18th Century traditional town house, tucked away in a very private location on the outskirts of Gatehouse of Fleet with a riverbank location looking out over the Fleet
Water. 5 Boatgreen has recently been completely renovated internally to a high standard, providing this historic property with a thoroughly modern feel.
5 Boatgreen is an absolute gem of a property, tucked away at the southern end of Gatehouse of Fleet with south facing riverside gardens to the front and tastefully landscaped gardens to the rear. Lovingly refurbished by the current owners, this historic townhouse would suit a variety of owners, from first time buyers to holiday home owners or those looking to retire to the area. The property is within easy walking distance of the town centre and all amenities.
Gatehouse of Fleet is an active community and benefits from many local amenities, such as a Primary School, shops, and Accountants offices, hotels, library and Health Centre. 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. Within Gatehouse there are active sports clubs (for example, bowling, snooker and golf) and a wide variety of outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed in the area, including sailing, fishing, golf, cycling and hill walking.
The rear garden is a long, typical Gatehouse garden with an area of lawn raised to the rear with flower beds and rockery. The lawn is accessed via steps leading from a paved seating/dining area which, in turn, is accessed from the rear living room. Bounded on the sides by wooden fence, stone dyke and hedge, there is also a rear storage area, accessed from a side kitchen door, which contains separate wood and bike stores.
The front of the property includes an area of hard-standing for parking and extends from the edge of the road to include a large area of garden beyond and offers wonderful views of the Fleet Water.
