and many local amenities, this impressive three-storey sandstone period residence (built around 1888) retains much of its original
character and style. This charming semi-detached property benefits from well laid out and generously proportioned and versatile
accommodation and offers a distinctive spacious family home in a desirable location within close proximity of excellent schools
at nursery, primary and secondary level.
Dumfries, the ancient town offering a long and interesting history, is the largest town in the southwest area of Scotland and is the
administrative centre for Dumfries and Galloway. It was founded as a Royal Burgh in 1186 and is well known for its Burns House
and Mausoleum, the Queensberry Monument with the River Nith running through the town and the famous Devorgilla Bridge.
The house is well located for excellent shops and services including supermarkets within the area, a library, cinema and the
Theatre Royal, with buses serving the area and surrounding towns and villages and only a short drive from the M74 connecting
to the south to Carlisle and the M6 and to the north to Glasgow.
Dumfries is well located for access to Carlisle, Castle Douglas, Lockerbie and nearby Lochmaben. For sporting pursuits within
the locality, these include golf courses, a swimming pool, tennis courts, cricket, bowling, boating and fishing facilities and open
parkland for rural walks, whilst the Solway with its exceptional coastline is only a few miles to the south of the property. The
town has a railway station with regular trains running to Carlisle. Further shopping facilities can be found at Castle Douglas where
there are interesting and varied shops and boutiques for special requirements.
Whilst this property offers very spacious accommodation of impressive proportions, a variety of traditional features have been
retained including well-preserved decorative cornice work, feature fireplaces, panelled doors and ceiling and window arches. The
house has the benefit of a new central heating boiler and the radiators have been upgraded. Roof and gutter repairs have also
been carried out recently.
The front garden is laid out with an area of grass and attractive borders offering colour and interest at all times of the year. The
rear garden is extensive and is laid mainly to grass with a productive vegetable patch and further borders with interesting and
colourful plants and shrubs. A good-sized single garage is located to the front of the property with up and over door and power.
The spacious family accommodation located over three floors comprises a welcoming porch leading to the inner reception hall
which provides access to the main accommodation. The lounge is elegant and welcoming and has a connecting door to the
charming family diningroom with bay window to the front and a further window to the east. To the rear of the property is a
comfortable and bright sitting room with French door to the garden and the spacious breakfasting kitchen has views to the rear
garden and is well equipped. There is also a useful utility room to the side of the property, a ground floor WC and a porch at
the rear of the property. Access from the hall leads to the lower area which is presently used as a large workshop, storage area and
wine cellar. A sweeping staircase with carved wooden banisters leads to the mezzanine level where a bathroom is located. On
the first floor there are three outstanding double bedrooms and a luxury family bathroom with Jacuzzi and shower. A further
sweeping carpeted staircase leads to the second mezzanine floor where there is a study with window to the rear and on the top
floor there are two further spacious double bedrooms with panoramic views to Criffel Hill and a boxroom. The house is served
by gas central heating with a new boiler and has generous storage accommodation throughout.
