Full description

Ashwood is an extremely appealing and deceptively spacious Victorian villa, sitting in its own grounds accessed by the original sandstone gate piers. A gravel sweep provides ample parking for several cars, and leads around to a large enclosed garden which includes an orchard area to the side. There are open views of farmland to the rear, and village views with the Solway and the Cumbrian Lake District distant beyond from the front. The current owners have maintained Ashwood to a high standard, resulting in an elegant family home suitable for multi-generational living. A suite of rooms comprising the inner hall, dining room and shower room can be used as 'granny accommodation', and the five bedrooms on the first floor offer plenty of flexibility for children and teenagers. The main reception rooms are well proportioned and benefit from large windows letting in lots of light. Many period features remain, such as original cornicing and ceiling roses, beautiful woodwork and doors, including a unique decorative pattern on the sitting room door and skirtings.

Ashwood is located in the quiet Dumfriesshire village of Dornock. Famous for the Battle of Dornock in the Scottish Wars of Independence in 1333, Dornock is situated about two miles east of Annan and 16 miles from the city of Carlisle. The sand and mud banks of the Solway Firth are less than a mile away and the railway between Annan and Gretna is just north of the village. Annan has a good range of shops, schools and services and has excellent road and rail access. The M6 motorway can be reached in approximately ten minutes whilst the main line railway station in Carlisle is only 25 minutes by road. The fastest train to London Euston takes approximately 3 ¼ hours. There is also a railway station in Annan. The Airports of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle are all within about one and a half hours' drive. The area offers boundless opportunities for the outdoor enthusiasts. These include salmon and sea trout fishing on the nearby Rivers Nith, Annan and Border Esk as well as trout fishing on Dumfriesshire's numerous lochs and rivers. In addition spectacular driven and walked up shooting is available on many of the local estates as well as wild fowling on the nearby Solway coast. There are a number of excellent golf courses nearby in addition to the Seven Stanes mountain bike centres of Ae, Newcastleton and Dalbeattie. The mild climate which the area benefits from is ideal for gardeners and length of the growing season allows for a great variety of plants to flourish.
