A stunning Victorian property that has been restored to an extremely high standard. Original, period features have been lovingly retained and integrated into a beautiful, family home with every modern convenience. In addition to the extensive renovation works, a state of the art, biomass central heating system has been installed. Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI) payments of more than £5000 per annum continue until 2024, enough to heat the property for many years to come.
Located in a wonderfully elevated position on the edge of town, this imposing property, and it's adjoining twin, was constructed in 1880 for a well-to-do family. Commanding views over open countryside of the Solway Firth and Scottish Hills beyond, the property was designed to make the most of its lofty position. Spectacular Solway sunsets are an added bonus!
A breathtaking entrance hall, open to the first floor, provides a suitable introduction to this grand house and features original, geometric floor tiles and an imposing wooden stairway. The scale of this space also provides an indication of the generous room sizes to be found throughout.
The heart of this property is an open plan lounge kitchen diner the extends to the full width of the front elevation. Two large bay windows flood this space with light, as well as offering unrestricted views over the garden and the landscape beyond. A woodburning stove in the lounge complements the heating system, perfect for cosy days and nights.
The shaker-style kitchen fits beautifully; combining modern living and a period space. Integrated appliances, a huge central island, breakfast bar and window seat make this a great family room. A separate, formal dining room is decorated and furnished in a style befitting the property's history. Additional ground floor accommodation includes a bathroom, second lounge and utility room.
Upstairs, three luxurious bedrooms continue the feeling of space and quality, with room in each for kingside beds and bedroom furniture. The impressive family bathroom has a free-standing bath and contemporary, separate shower cubicle. A fourth bedroom completes the first floor accommodation.
The status of the original owners is evident from a separate stairway that leads to the servants quarters, complete with a lounge, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Don't worry if you don't have servants, this accommodation works equally well for semi-independent family or guests!
Outside, a remote electric gate controls access to a gravel driveway. The front, lawned garden offers a safe place for children to play or for adults to relax. An adjacent allotment-style garden offers the potential to be developed as a formal garden or re-instated as an allotment.
In summary, why would you settle for an ordinary house, when you can buy this extraordinary house? Big on space, big on quality - a sympathetic restoration of a landmark building that incorporates modern family rooms and a high-tech, cost effective heating system. The semi-detached tag simply doesn't do justice to this wonderful property. Early viewing is highly recommended.
