The emormous lounge was created when the property was owned by the local bridge club

Originally constructed in 1878, this grade B listed property offers huge potential for families or various business ventures.

It was orginally built by local architects A B & J Crombie for their own residential use and to their specific high standards.

The Crombies built many significant buildings including the local library and iconic Rosefield Mills over the Nith.

The rooms retain many original features

The sandstone exterior houses a solid family home with flexible accommodation over four levels.

The property has had very few owners in its lifetime, although among these, rather unusually, was the local bridge club for around 50 years until 2000.

It was they who were responsible for creating the huge first-floor lounge by coverting two rooms into one.

The property has an outstanding range of original features including high ceilings and ornate cornicing, feature fireplaces, wood-burning stove, period hardwood staircase, doors/finishing.

The B grade listed building dates back to the Victorian era

The ground floor accommodation comprises two large reception rooms, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, pantry cupboard, utility room and toilet.

The first-floor features two bedrooms (one of which boasts an en-suite shower room), study room, large lounge/diner which runs the full width of the house and another bathroom.

The attic accommodation is made up of three double bedrooms, a family bathroom consisting of free-standing bath, toilet and wash hand basin with below vanity unit. Bedroom four benefits from a wash hand basin with a fitted steam booth.

Located directly opposite Dumfries Train Station and Hotel the property features a fire security system covering all principal rooms and areas, meaning there is the potential to consider B&B accommodation or general business ventures, whilst retaining an area for owners accommodation.

The Lovers’ Walk property is currently being sold by Yopa for offers in excess of £325,000.
