CLOSING DATE SET FOR FRIDAY, 29TH OCTOBER 2021 AT NOON.

SITUATION
Beechwood House is located at the end of Harthope Place, a few minutes walk from the town centre, on the north eastern edge of Moffat. Harthope Place borders a mature beech woodland and is a much sought after residential location within the town.

The pretty town of Moffat has a wide, tree-lined high street and retains many of its original characteristics. It was a popular spa destination from the 1600’s until the early 20th century. Moffat takes the title of Europe’s first Dark Sky Town and offers a wide range of independent shops and services plus primary and secondary level schools. The surrounding area is renowned for its picturesque rolling countryside and provides excellent walking and biking opportunities.

Moffat benefits from being comfortably commutable, south to Carlisle and north to both Edinburgh and Glasgow. The town has good access to the A74(M), the direct route from Carlisle to Glasgow, and nearby Lockerbie has a railway station on the West Coast Main Line.

DESCRIPTION
The gracious Beechwood House is a traditional detached property that dates from 1848. The house, originally built as a family home, has been used for a variety of uses including an exclusive school in the late 1800s and a small hotel in the late 1900s. The current owner, having brought up a family at Beechwood House, now runs a successful holiday letting business from the property.

The versatile, well-appointed family sized accommodation has been refurbished and upgraded in recent years and retains many period features. The décor has been thoughtfully designed and carefully finished and the presentation is both chic and stylish. The principle reception rooms benefit from superb floor to ceiling windows offering uninterrupted views over the town to the surrounding countryside.

The seven bedrooms on the first floor benefit from en suite facilities. The rooms are nicely proportioned and bright rooms and all the bathroom fittings are modern and stylish.
On the top floor, the open plan room makes an excellent games room. The generous ceiling height and feature dormer window makes this a tremendous light and spacious room.

The house benefits from a commercial heating and hot water system.
