Full descriptionAttractive semi-detached house, located in a quiet and sought-after residential street, within a short walk of the town centre and amenities. It has had a new gas-fired central heating system installed within the last few years and the original property has had double-glazing added. In the past, a full-height extension has been added at the rear, allowing for a third bedroom upstairs and, downstairs, a separate kitchen which has, in turn, meant that the living accommodation downstairs now features a light and bright lounge open-plan through to a dining-area. Attractive cast-iron open balustrade staircase, and this is an ideal family home which also benefits from off-street parking and a ,safe and secure, enclosed sheltered garden to the rear.

The town also offers the usual range of shopping facilities, whilst the county town of Dumfries (some twenty five minutes away by road) has two cinemas and a wide range of national chain stores and specialist shops. Carlisle is twenty minutes' drive to the south. Lockerbie has highly-regarded schooling to both primary and secondary level in a new combined school.
