The Boathouse is situated on the picturesque banks of the River Cree estuary. This charming cottage is approached by a mature tree lined winding tarmac driveway and is surrounded by its own large landscaped garden grounds. The property offers seclusion, albeit within close proximity to the A75, and has great potential for living self-sufficiently.

The property benefits from open views across the Cree Estuary and beyond which, along with the garden grounds, attracts a variety of wildlife. The occupier of the Boathouse benefits from riparian fishing rights over the River Cree estuary. The property has been well-maintained within the current ownership and offers comfortable living accommodation over a single floor with two hobby rooms within the attic.

The closest village to the Boathouse is Creetown, which is a small seaside town about 7 miles from Newton Stewart. Creetown is a former fishing village that was founded in the 18th century. It formed one end of a ferry route that took pilgrims across the River Cree estuary to the shrine of St Ninian at Whithorn. Creetown is home to the award-winning Gem Rock Museum with its collection of gemstones, crystals, minerals, rocks and fossils. As the filming location for the classic movie The Wicker Man, Creetown enjoys cult status among movie buffs.

A wider range of services are available at Newton Stewart and offers a wide variety of shops, services and businesses, providing visitors and local people alike with a friendly, personal service. Other amenities include a modern health centre, cottage hospital, secondary schooling, cinema and a swimming pool/sports centre. There are numerous golf courses in the local area, with the closest being within the town boundaries of Newton Stewart.

OUTSIDE
The Boathouse sits within its own large mature garden grounds, which are made up of lawns, mature trees, vegetable patches, flowering borders along with a range of garden outbuildings. Given the nature of the grounds, they present huge potential for self-sufficient living. The property has direct access to the River Cree estuary where the owner of the property benefits from Riparian fishing rights.
