North Laurieknowe Place is situated on the western edge of Dumfries. The properties are only a 5-minute walk to the town centre amenities, yet nestled off a minor lane set within extensive beautifully landscaped garden grounds, which provide privacy and seclusion. One could be forgiven for thinking that the whole property is situated in a peaceful semi-rural countryside location.

The main house is a spacious sandstone-built property set over three floors, under a slated roof. The property retains many of the original features, such as cornices, fireplaces, cast iron radiators, etc. The property has been well maintained over the years with new central heating boiler installed very recently, however there are areas which may benefit from a degree of cosmetic modernisation.

Set within the grounds is a detached cottage (No’ 4), which is utilised as holiday let accommodation. This charming cottage is set over a single floor and benefits from almost 40 weeks occupancy throughout the year with many returning customer. In 2018 the property was awarded a gold five-star review rating. Further information with regard to the holiday let can be found via:

The garden has been carefully landscaped over the years, with areas laid to lawns with mature shrubs and specimen trees. An established mature orchard grows a variety of fruit trees to include, pear, plum, cherry, damson, etc., along with a mature fruit garden providing a good crop of gooseberries, loganberries and spring and autumn raspberries together with a vegetable patch.

We are informed that planning permission was granted in 2014 for the erection of another dwellinghouse within the garden grounds, however any interested party wishing to pursue this would need to make their own enquiries with Dumfries & Galloway Council (www.dumgal.gov.uk/planning).

The Home Report can be downloaded by clicking the button on the left of this page. It should be noted that both the main dwelling and the cottage are contained within the one report.
