DESCRIPTIONAshwood is a deceptively spacious Victorian property with a unique chocolate box appeal. The current owners have maintained the property to a high level and have recently completed the installation of a traditional style kitchen which features a large corner pantry, built in double oven and microwave, integrated fridge freezer, integrated dishwasher, a five ring gas hob and traditional oil fired AGA which also heats the water. There is a 1 and a half bowl sink with instant boiling water tap. There is ample room for dining within the kitchen, however the property also offers a separate more formal dining space ideal for hosting friends and family. The large formal living room has a large bay window to the front and smaller window to the side allowing natural light to flood the room. A marble fire surround and hearth is home to an open fire which creates a focal point and cosy feel on winter’s nights. The smaller sitting room again has a large bay window and has a small yet powerful multi fuel stove. To the ground floor hallway there is a feature sky light and within the entrance vestibule there is the original floor tiles and the current owners have decorated the space to create a unique welcoming space. To the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a single bedroom which could be used as an office or study. Two of the double bedrooms have modern en-suite facilities and there is a large family bathroom with separate shower and bath. Ashwood offers good quality family accommodation over two floors in a desirable semi-rural location, the large workshop offers great opportunity for those with a particular want for extensive outdoor hobby/workshop space for pleasure or business.SITUATION Ashwood is located in the quiet Dumfriesshire village of Dornock which is conveniently located between Annan and Gretna.
