Originally a lay-preacher's house, Douglas House is situated in the heart of the small village of Gilsland. It is within walking distance from Hadrian's Wall as well as pubs and tea rooms. Surrounding Douglas House are beautiful walks including the stepping stones across the River Irthing. The back of the house is particularly stunning with a 'turret', said to be designed as a folly to show off when the Victorians walked back from the bowling green.
The local primary school is rated outstanding at the last inspection (walking distance from the house). Apart from the Roman forts, there are numerous other castles in the area, some occupied, but most in ruins. In the grounds of the local Gilsland Spa hotel are the chalybeate and sulphur springs that issue from the rocks.
The size and location of Douglas House would make it ideal for a family home but also very attractive for a holiday let, due to the large number of walkers, cyclists and tourists who pass through Gilsland on the Hadrian's Wall trail.
The house consists of a vestibule with stained glass through to the hall, hallway, living room, study, cloakroom, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and utility. Upstairs there is a bathroom along with 3 bedrooms and bedroom 4/study. Outside there is a paved courtyard with access to the garage and cellar workshops. The garage has an electric roller door and inspection pit. There are 2 large cellar workshops providing ample storage. There are 2 small outside store cupboards.
