DESCRIPTION Originally constructed in the 1890’s, 6 Nithsdale View is a part of a row of semi-detached sandstone houses which look back down over the rolling countryside of Upper Nithsdale. Situated at the end of the row, Number 6 benefits from having no neighbours to one side. Surprisingly spacious inside, the house has a welcoming feel, with the original woodwork having been painstakingly stripped back to its natural state lending a warm and inviting look to the rooms. An open plan layout on the ground floor lends an air of modernity, whilst still echoing the property’s origins in late Victorian design. The generous space comprises a sitting room, dining area and kitchen, flowing from front to back. A shower room completes the accommodation on this floor. With three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, the house could easily accommodate a young family, or a couple requiring a home office plus spare bedroom. A small garden to the front leads around via a pend style path to the rear garden, which slopes upwards towards a shared lane to the rear.ACCESSThere is a right of access over the lane to the rear of Nithsdale View.ACCOMMODATION Ground Floor: Entrance Hall.
