    About this property

    • This magnificent Grade II* listed property is simply brimming with character and style in equal measure. A gentleman's residence believed to date back to the 1600's and gained its name from hosting The Duke of Cumberland for a few days as he chased Bonnie Prince Charlie north to Scotland in 1745.
      The subject of a complete refurbishment in recent years, the property combines the grace and proportions of a bygone era with contemporary bathrooms, modern central heating and the usual comforts of the 21st Century.

      The impressive front door opens to a splendid hall with a glorious Minton tiled floor which extends through to the staircase hall and a cloakroom with WC. To the left of the hall is the spectacular Palladian style drawing room with its Venetian window, high ceiling with elaborate plaster mouldings and impressive fireplace graced with a period over mantel mirror.
      The formal dining room on the other side of the hall shares fantastic proportions and a fireplace with a living flame gas fire. A carved Jacobean turning staircase leads off the inner hall, illuminated by a skylight with a cloakroom WC and an access door to a stone staircase leading down to the barrel vaulted cellar and utility room.
      The kitchen lies at the rear of the ground floor and opens to a private terrace area and the courtyard with parking and the oak framed style car port beyond. Well-appointed with granite surfaces and contemporary cupboards the breakfast kitchen has a four oven AGA with an electric companion unit and integrated Siemens appliances with a coffee maker, warming drawer, fridge, freezer and microwave.

      The magnificent staircase leads to the landing off which there are four bedrooms, one of which is more suited to a home office, for which it is currently used.

      The principal bedroom lies to the front with two large sash windows and fitted wardrobes flanking the fireplace. An contemporary bathroom lies off with a large shower, washstand wash hand basin, WC and bath. The second bedroom mirrors the dining room below in proportions and has a window to the front and a fireplace. The house bathroom is finished in Travertine marble and features a double ended Laufen bath, large separate shower, WC and wash hand basin and adjoins the split level third bedroom with a window to the rear.

      The gated rear courtyard is accessed off Cumberland Street via a short cobbled lane and the courtyard provides for visitor parking as well as a carport and allocated parking space for Cumberland House. The rear courtyard has a private area off the kitchen for outside entertaining.

      Lawned gardens extend to the front and part of the side. Being elevated from Jordangate, they are pleasant and reasonably private with screening shrubs and bushes.
      Services: all mains services are connected.
