About this 5 - Terraced

Built circa 1897, this three-storey Victorian town house on a quiet residential road in Thornhill, Dumfries and Galloway, comprises three double bedrooms and two singles. There are two large reception rooms, a kitchen and small utility room, a big bathroom on the mezzanine and a small shower room and toilet on the ground floor. A vestibule, long hallway, landing, top balcony and spiralling staircase all the way to the top completes the sweep of the house. Inside, very few of the original features have been taken out including the panel doors, picture rails and window shutters, large roll-top cast iron bath, Shanks cast-iron cistern toilet and period fireplaces (Carrara marble in the sitting room). The ground floor windows are secondary glazed and the kitchen furniture comprises free-standing bespoke units topped with hand-made beechwood work surfaces. The staircase is a very nicely made Victorian one, turning over three floors with cast iron balusters and mahogany handrail. The downstairs windows are double glazed while the original wooden shutters and fully usable on the first floor. We didn’t put central heating into the house as we were loathe to spoil the rooms with radiators but we did install an oil tank and connecting pipes in the garden, which is hidden from view by tumbling shrubs. There is, despite the expected low energy efficiency score on the home report, a clean canvass for the next residents to decide how they would like to heat the house. In the winter we keep the house cosy with a large wood burning stove (handmade by Dowling, Bladnoch) in the original range fireplace in the dining room and an open fire in the sitting room. We also use electric oil-filled radiators and the wooden window shutters. The roof cavities were insulated last year, taking advantage of government grants. Electricity bills average £49 per month over the year. The downstairs reception rooms are carpeted while the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs have sanded floorboards. Outside, a fully enclosed garden with mature shrubs, lawn, wood/tool shed and patio leads up to a large glazed outbuilding with access by a separate door to the rear of the property. This outbuilding, made of brick, glass and slate, is currently used as a workshop but has great potential for conversion into a studio or even (with appropriate permissions) a granny flat. Parking for two cars is available on the property’s private forecourt at the front of the house between the road and the pavement. Access to the back of the property leads to a quiet cul-de-sac with parking spaces.

Area Information

THE village of Thornhill lies above the River Nith and at the feet of the Lowther Hills in the tranquil and beautiful area of Mid-Nithsdale. Here the River Nith cuts a wide and dramatic path through the hills on its journey to the Solway and is a haven for fishermen, field sport enthusiasts, hill walkers, mountain bikers or anyone wishing to get away for some peace and quiet in an inspirational setting. The “Ducal village” is set on either side of the cross, the Pegasus emblem of the Buccleuch and Queensberrys, and there is a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from. The Thornhill Health Centre is a few minutes’ walk away down the hill and there is a small geriatric hospital on the premises. The village also has its own dentist, a post office in the Spar shop and a range of local businesses and traders. For those who are looking for the best education for their children, the village also boasts one of the 50 top schools in Scotland: the award-winning Wallace Hall Academy. There is also a through primary school and nursery adjacent to the building, which was built in 2010. For the family orientated, this is a wonderful, safe haven for children to grow up in with the countryside just a few minutes’ stroll away. Kids will enjoy picnics on the banks of the River Nith; exploring the grandeur and fun of Drumlanrig Castle; a walk in the hills; throwing a few pots at The Happy Potter on Drumlanrig Street; summer gala fun on West Morton Street in July; a community centre and play area; plus the seaside is just 45 minutes away by car. It takes about 20 minutes to get to Dumfries by car and there is a regular bus service to the town throughout the week.
