Property Overview


Hewats are delighted to represent to the market “The Spinney” is a deceptively spacious and well-presented 1920s contemporary detached 4 bedroomed bungalow with well-appointed and versatile accommodation, ideal for both the family buyer or those wishing to downsize. This property has recently undergone damp, woodworm and solum treatments which all come with guarantees and now benefits from newly fitted carpets and redecoration.

Set back from the road and approached via double wooden gates, on entering, a gravelled driveway opens onto ample parking for several cars.

It is situated in the heart of one of Dumfries most prestigious residential areas and is just a short walk from various leisure facilities, the County Golf Course, local restaurants, town centre shopping and educational providers on all levels.  

The generously proportioned garden grounds to front and rear are laid out mainly in lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs that offer all year-round colour. The rear garden boasts several entertaining alfresco dining/entertaining spaces which allows you to make the most of those Spring/Summer evenings.

The recently installed Garden Pod within the rear garden provides a private sanctuary and is an excellent way to create extra entertaining, living or relaxation space. Mains electricity is connected to the Garden Pod and in the future, mains water and drainage could also be connected allowing shower and bathroom facilities. The current owners use the Pod as an Artist Studio. 

The accommodation extends to 153m2 and comprises a well-proportioned Entrance Hall that gives a real flavour and taste of what the property has to offer. Within the Hall there is a decorative stained glass “Coppola” which allows the natural light to flood in. In addition, the property retains some of its original features in particular the coving and mouldings. The open plan kitchen comes with a range of stylish and modern base and mounted wall units, built-in appliances including a high-end coffee machine and an American style fridge/freezer, high quality flooring and a Breakfast Bar area with decorative lighting above. The connecting Garden Room with views out over the rear garden currently acts as the dining space. 

The Sitting Room has a chique and contemporary feel with its white washed walls, wide slatted venetian blinds, glamorous pendant lighting and features a multi-fuel stove with tiled inlay and hearth with oak mantle making this a focal point of the room.

The Master Bedroom is generous in size with a view to the front with built-in triple wardrobes with double rails, shelving and mirrored doors. The further three bedrooms are also double in size and again tastefully decorated with contemporary finishes with wide slatted venetian blinds. Bedrooms 3 and 4 along with the shower room are located to rear of the property thus offering, if required, the scope to transform Bedroom 4, which has lovely views out over the rear garden to a Lounge with additional sleeping and washing facilities adjacent. This could be an ideal solution to providing private multi-generational living without comprising the main living accommodation.
