Property description

Realter Estate Agents are delighted to present to the market, this captivating Georgian Grade B listed sandstone-fronted townhouse, on George Street in Dumfries. With many original features over four floors of accomodation, this historical property provides a great deal of space in the very heart of to

Entering the property's airy vestibule through an impressive hardwood exterior door, we proceed to the bright and welcoming hallway. To our left is the spacious living room, with original fireplace and intricate cornicing. Also on the ground floor is the study/dining room, with its tall window overlooking the rear garden. Ascending the stunning stone staircase to the first floor, we find the family bathroom ahead, and the fully fitted kitchen to the right. The first of four bedrooms is also on this floor - a time capsule of original features, right down to the painstakingly restored Georgian paintwork. Climbing the staircase again to the second floor, we find a further two double bedrooms, and one single. Back at ground level once more, we descend to a half-landing, with WC, and access to the rear garden, before arriving at the basement level proper. Here, we find two very well-proportioned basement rooms, each with timber sash and case windows, and the utility room. An exterior door leads to the front yard, and a second (unused) WC.

George Street itself is a beautiful street in Dumfries town centre. Currently benefitting from a resurgence in residential property, there are many amenities at hand, including excellent schools; various restaurants; bars; cinemas; museums; shopping centres, and first-rate public transport links.

As the only property on George Street which has been continuously occupied since construction, viewing of this wonderful property comes very highly recommended indeed.
