McEwan Fraser Legal are delighted to offer to the market ‘The Lea’. A charming two-bed detached period home built circa 1920 and set within the peaceful and popular town of Lockerbie. This lovely property is nestled within beautiful gardens surrounding it to the front, side and rear. Lovingly cared for with period features still intact, period homes such as these are becoming something of a rarity these days. This beautiful unspoilt example has been in the same family for the last 58 years, pointing to its unique appeal and captivating aesthetics which continue to delight all who grace its doorway.
This is the ‘someday’ type of home many people dream of owning, and the extensive gardens, a mix of landscaped cottage garden and wildflower wooded areas with established trees and shrubs that surround the property offer the perfect spot to relax and take things a little slower for once. The property oozes timeless period charm and offers a home that is not only extremely comfortable but very relaxing too. The lounge comprises a feature fireplace and a large bay window which creates a very bright and comfortable space. Period detailing is evident throughout and the generous dimensions offer a plethora of furniture configuration options. The spacious kitchen/diner is finished in a range of units with a cooker and space for a dining table. The utility room offers the perfect solution to keep the washing out of sight and helps make washday a little more bearable.
On the ground floor, there are two double bedrooms in this lovely home, both are double aspect and therefore wonderfully bright, along with ample space for free-standing furniture. The shower room contains a toilet and sink and a standalone enclosure with an electric shower. The floored loft area offers tremendous potential (subject to planning approval) to create an extra bedroom and en-suite or home office.
The outside space of this home also adds so much lifestyle value for the new owners. The stunning gardens are beautifully landscaped, with excellent space to relax on the sun patio, for those who love to be close to nature it’s perfect.
Central heating, double-glazing and newly fitted smoke detectors keep the home warm, comfortable, secure and safe. The gated driveway can cater for many vehicles.
Wildlife and many birds will regularly visit the garden. Some properties tick many boxes, rarely, however, do we come across a property that seems to tick all the boxes. If you are searching for attributes like authentic period design, flexible accommodation, set in a quaint friendly town, a stunning setting and an all-around great home, then this is it. Here’s the chance to change to an altogether more relaxed pace of life.
