Situation: Langholm, also known colloquially as the “Muckle Toon”, is a burgh in Dumfries and Galloway in southern Scotland. Langholm lies between four hills in the valley of the River Esk in the Southern Uplands. The town is well know for its love of Rugby and the Langholm Common Riding, a horse riding festival which attracts thousands of tourists annually. The town has a variety of independent retailers, cafés, pubs, hotels, restaurant’s, butchers and bakers as well as Langholm golf course both primary and secondary schools. Dumfries and Galloway is one of the genuinely rural areas of Scotland and therefore provides a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare offering a lifestyle property for country pursuits.
26 Drove Road has potential to be an amazing family home or rental property. The cottage has retained many of its unique, period features and offers flexible accommodation. The front door welcomes a study or single bedroom to the left and a generously, sized living-room to the right with an impressive, multi-fuel stove in the centre of the room which lies on a paved hearth with a brick surround and timber mantelpiece. Towards the back of the house is a large kitchen with floor units and an integrated oven. There is enough space for a dining table and a small, open cupboard for storage with former plumbing. Another door off the living-room leads to the family bathroom which is equipped with W.C, bath and over-head shower and a sink. Stairs lead up to the first floor landing where there are two double bedrooms. The master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and en-suite WC has views over the main street and driveway. Both bedrooms are equipped with modern, electric heaters. The entire property is single-glazed throughout with indoor, wooden shutters.
Outside there is a large, private driveway with gate access and rear courtyard with gravel surface. The outside of the property is over-grown but with some maintenance it could have great potential.
This type of property with development potential is rarely welcomed to the market and therefore viewings are highly recommended.
