Cathay has commanding views over Luce Bay from its elevated position in Monreith. The Garden Room, with large bay window, is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the panoramic view. Cathay is filled with natural light in all the sea facing rooms, a trio of arches link the Garden Room to the Sitting Room, allowing the light to filter through. A Classic 90 Rangemaster cooker with ceramic hob which adds character as well as practicality to the Kitchen. Cathay is double glazed throughout and sits under a tiled roof. Oil fired central heating is powered by a Worcester Bosch boiler, situated in the Utility Area. Cathay would make a wonderful home, family home or holiday home by the sea.
Monreith is a small coastal village, just over two miles from the harbour village of Port William. The area is safe for swimming, a haven for birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts, and sea fishing is also possible. Just on the edge of Monreith, at St Medan Golf Club, a bronze statue of an otter stands on a rock overlooking Luce Bay, a memorial to the famous author Gavin Maxwell who wrote the book Ring of Brightwater which tells how he brought an otter back from Iraq and raised it in Scotland. Primary Schools, village shops and GPs surgeries are close by in the villages of Port William and Whithorn and the nearest secondary school is the Douglas Ewart in Newton Stewart. Newton Stewart, the nearby market town, provides a more extensive range of services including secondary schooling, leisure and sporting facilities, banks, supermarkets, a variety of shops and professional services.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
Cathay is situated at the top of a driveway, set back from the main road, with parking for several vehicles. A door opens out from the Garden Room to the garden, where lawn stretches out to the front and side of the property. The garden is well maintained, mature trees and shrubs fill borders and outline the boundary whilst providing shelter. Decking in front of the Garden Room is ideal for dining al fresco, decking, accessed from Bedroom two, is the perfect place to relax and unwind before bed. The cabbage palms reflect the warmer weather flowing through the region in the Gulf Stream.
The timber garage has a concrete floor, electricity and is shelved providing excellent storage space.
