Ref No: REAL-LI-SA95
Substantial Georgian house, in much sought-after Rotchell Park, Dumfries. With mature gardens; 6 bedrooms; 5 reception rooms. and many original period features, viewing of this beautiful home comes very highly recommended indeed.
Entering the grounds through the sandstone pillared gateway with cast-iron gates, the graveled driveway leads us past sweeping lawns with colourful flowerbeds, to a spiraling stone staircase, at the top of which is the propertys front door. From here, we find ourselves in a convenient vestibule, before entering the sizeable reception hall, with original and ornate pillars. To the left is the warm and inviting living room, with dual aspects overlooking the gardens, and a fireplace with stunning polished slate mantle and matching window sill. Beyond here is the propertys dining room, with access to the spacious and functional family kitchen through a rear vestibule, which also houses a generous pantry storage cupboard, as well as access to the rear gardens through a second exterior door.
Once in the propertys hallway, a staircase leads down to a corridor with second rear door; convenient downstairs WC, and access to the propertys well ventilated basement level, which is divided into three rooms and one long storage area. Back on the ground floor, a large utility room houses the recently added Worcester Bosch combi boiler, and leads to the propertys fourth reception room - a cozy sitting room. Following the staircase - with original oak and iron balustrade - upwards, the first half-landing features the propertys family bathroom and separate shower room. On the first floor proper, are four double bedrooms, including the generous master, with dressing area. Farther upwards, we reach the second floor, and find a further two double bedrooms, and a box room, which would make an ideal study. Externally, the property benefits from sweeping lawns, mature trees; various flowerbeds, Greenhouse, an attached garage, various storage facilities, and courtyard to the rear.
Rotchell Park itself is one of the most highly sought-after areas in Dumfriesshire. Many grand houses have been built here over the years, and with Dumfries town centre a mere five minute walk away, there is also excellent access to the many amenities in the area, including schools; restaurants; cafes; bars; cinemas; shops, and public transport links.
