Harper & Stone are delighted and extremely privileged to bring to the market 17 West Burnside in Dollar, dating back to 1864 it is one of the loveliest properties we have had the pleasure of marketing in recent times. Situated overlooking the picturesque Dollar Burn, a familiar reference point in the town, it is lined with its famous cherry blossom trees, and Mother Nature puts on a wonderful display during the Springtime.
Number 17 has been within the current owners family for 100 years, hence this is the first opportunity to bring it to the open market. Having been lovingly refurbished and extended the owners have created a comfortable home, consolidating traditional features with modern touches to craft a comfortable loving dwelling.
Entry through the wooden front door takes you into a small vestibule which in turn leads to the main hall. To the left is the Formal Lounge, a lovely homely space with dual aspect windows. The wooden fire surround with pretty tile detail houses a living flame gas fire. The Master bedroom is to the right, again front facing overlooking the Burn, and presents fitted wardrobes and a recessed shelving unit. The ensuite shower room features a large walk-in shower, handbasin set in a lovely wooden vanity unit and WC.
Further down the hallway on the right is the extensive utility room housing a large array of wall and base units in a cream finish with coordinating worktops. There is a pulley, stainless steel sink and space for 3 freestanding appliances. At the back of the utility room is a door leading to a walk in pantry affording more storage.
Following on is the kitchen/dining/living area, a pleasingly light airy living space with a homely feel. The 3 velux windows allow extra light to flow in. The kitchen has a generous array of wall units, base units and pan drawers in a modern finish, complimented with light wood effect worktops. The integrated appliances include a 5-zone induction hob, modern pop up extractor hood, electric oven, microwave, 2 warming drawers, wine fridge, dishwasher and space for an American style fridge freezer. All the appliances are Neff. There is ample room for a large dining table between the kitchen and the family area, making a very large space feel cosy and inclusive. The relaxing living space has a log burning stove and patio doors leading to the back garden.
Heading back to the hallway is entry to the private self contained annex, a perfect option for independent living or as a letting opportunity or B&B enterprise. The accommodation consists of a kitchen with space for a small table and chairs, hallway with side door giving independent access, large shower room, light airy lounge with gas fire and a door out to the garden and a sizeable double bedroom.
At the end of the hallway the half turn staircase leads to the upper living accommodation. There is a window halfway up the stairs letting light flood into the upper landing. To the left is the large family bathroom comprising bath, large shower, hand basin, heated towel rail and WC.
There are 2 double bedrooms both with front facing bay windows taking in the view over the Burn and built in wardrobes. The front facing single bedroom is currently being used as an office/study. The landing gives access to the partially floored loft. An important point to make is that the landing and bedroom 4 are the original ceiling height when the house was built, the bathroom, bedrooms 2 and 3 have all had the ceilings lifted to offer additional space to the coombed ceilings.
Externally at the front of the house is a small garden bound by a medium rise wall, wrought iron railings and gated entrance. To the rear is the private low maintenance garden comprising patio, chipped open space, raised rockery, double car port, off road parking and fully lined shed with electricity supply. The self contained annex has its own small terrace leading to the main outdoor area.
