Barrbridge House is an historic building within Dalbeattie. It was the mill owner's house, and during WW2 the cellar served as the air raid shelter for the surrounding mill workers cottages. The tunnel which the sheltering workers used to enter and exit the shelter from the garden can still be seen, and indeed the current owners remember using the cellar and tunnel for their childhood birthday parties. In more recent years the exit into the garden has been bricked up. The house has a quiet dignity, sitting as it does overlooking the site of the former mill and across the wider town, and will make a wonderful family home for generations to come.

The accommodation is elegant and retains a period feel, with plenty of room for a growing family or lots of guests. The ground floor layout allows for flexibility of use, with both dining kitchen with Aga and a large back kitchen and pantry, which could be reconfigured and modernised to suit. The stone outbuildings against the rear boundary wall provide much useful storage and possibly scope for development to ancillary accommodation such as a home office or studio, subject to obtaining all necessary consents and warrants.
