Property Overview

Flat 2 at The Old Brewery is a first floor flat with well proportioned two bedroom accommodation.  All windows face towards the Mill on the Fleet overlooking the old water wheel and therefore the flat is very peaceful. However, the flats enjoy one of the most central locations in Gatehouse of Fleet, and are very convenient for the shops, restaurants, and other amenities of the town.  The main grocery shop in Gatehouse, the Spar, sits immediately opposite the flats on the other side of the High Street.

A Grade 2 Listed Building, it is understood that the former brewery was built in the late 1700’s, the idea being to reduce whisky consumption in Gatehouse! Use continued as a brewery until the early 20th century, and then after a number of years of disuse, the building was converted to create the pleasant flatted accommodation in around 1997.  The flat is now easily managed and the development has a Manager to organise communal repairs, etc.  There is also a communal Buildings Insurance Policy, and the annual cost of both management and buildings insurance is currently approximately £500.00.

The small and friendly community of Gatehouse of Fleet is situated in a national scenic area, close to the magnificent Galloway Forest Park.  The area is well known for its varied scenery, with dramatic hills and glens inland, and attractive coastline with rocky shores and sandy coves in close proximity.  The mild climate adds to the attractions of the area.
