Brownhall Primary/ St Joseph’s Secondary School, both are just a short distance from Highfield. DESCRIPTION Constructed in 1968, Highfield is a unique architect designed rural gem, situated in an elevated site just a short distance from the region’s principal town of Dumfries. The architects involved were based in Dumfries at the time under the name Sutherland, Dickie & Copeland. Highfield very much reflects the Bauhaus architectural concept which has light, space and simplicity at its core. The front entrance vestibule opens to a bright spacious staircase hallway, flooded with natural light from the full height window with Westerly aspect spanning two floors. The principal reception room again provides an extensive and bright space benefiting from multiple aspects with an open fire for those cooler Autumn/Winter nights. Plans have been drawn and considered by the current owner to open up to the side of the living room directly onto the garden (subject to the necessary Planning Permissions).An opening extends to the dining room at the rear of the property with access directly to the rear garden through a traditional garden. This continues through to the kitchen/breakfast room with a range of fitted floor and wall units, Aga and electric hob. Again, dual aspect and a large window overlooking the rear garden. The adjacent utility room provides additional space for appliances and larder storage. The boiler room sits off the hallway, housing the central heating boiler and providing direct access to the adjoining garage beyond. The modern fitted shower/wet room completes the accommodation on the ground floor. To the first floor, a stunning large multiple aspect master bedroom enjoys views over the grounds and beyond. Two further bedrooms and an adapted wet room shower complete the first floor accommodation. The property is double glazed and benefits from oil central heating. There is much potential to adapt or extend the space specific to the buyer’s needs. Highfield is a delightful, unique property in a stunning rural location offering many desirable attributes which are of continued appeal. ACCOMMODATION Ground Floor: Entrance Vestibule.
