Burnett House is a well presented and busy business that has been run by the current proprietor since 2004, and has been placed on the market due to their wish to retire.

Burnett House trades throughout the year and has been extensively refurbished by the current vendors.

The quality of the property is reflected in the number of awards it currently holds such as 4 Star rating from VisitScotland and being ranked number 15 out of 49 on TripAdvisor.

Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website:

www.burnetthouse.co.uk.

It enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its central location and excellent reputation. Many of the visitors include tourists and business people.

Although the business is trading extremely successfully, it still has potential to grow income further by developing the large basement or owner's accommodation into further letting rooms, thus freeing up the second floor for more letting space.

Dumfries is a market town and former royal burgh within the Dumfries and Galloway council area of Scotland. Dumfries is well situated, being just 60 minutes from Glasgow and 20 minutes from Carlisle.
Burnett House is located on Lovers Walk, just a few minutes walk from the town centre and approx 5 minutes from Dumfries Railway Station.

Burnett House is a traditionally built Victorian sandstone semi-detached property that has been well maintained and modernised by the current vendors. The property has been completely refurbished to an extremely high standard and is now offered in true walk-in condition.

The property is set in its own grounds, benefiting from private parking to the rear. The main entry is from the front that leads into a reception hallway which in turn gives access to all accommodation and public areas.


Situated to the left hand side of the reception hallway you will find the residents' breakfast/dining room. Furnished comfortably with wooden tables and leather high back chairs, the dining room is tastefully decorated and benefits from a large bay window and gas fireplace.

There are 4 letting bedrooms, 3 of which have en-suite facilities. The rooms comprise of 2 triple rooms, 1 twin and 1 single room with private facilities. The bedrooms have been refurbished to a high modern standard and include LCD televisions and tea/coffee making facilities.

Burnett House benefits from excellent owner's accommodations, featuring 2 double bedrooms: master with en-suite, a private lounge, dining/kitchen with sunroom and large basement.

The kitchen also gives access to a rear garden, laid to slab and shrubbery.

The basement level of Burnett House is used as storage by the current vendor.

As expected with a property the style and size of Burnett House, there are good service areas including a fully fitted kitchen, laundry and cellar.

The front of the property has a small garden and leads straight to the street.

To the rear there is a large parking area for up to three cars and patio area.
