    About this property

    • Believed to date back to the 1600's and formerly the mayor's house, this magnificent Grade II* listed property gained its name from hosting The Duke of Cumberland for a few days as he chased Bonnie Prince Charlie north to Scotland in 1746. This true one of a kind town house is brimming with period features and historical provenance, most notably displayed by the front sitting room.

      The property combines the grace and proportions of a bygone era with modern central heating and the usual comforts of the 21st Century. Priced competitively, this rare to the market opportunity offers buyers the potential to upgrade and enhance this unique property to suit.

      The impressive front door opens to a splendid hall with a glorious Minton tiled floor which extends through to the staircase, dining hall and a cloakroom with WC. To the left of the hall is the spectacular neoclassical Georgian sitting room with its Palladian 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 and 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 to the barrel vaulted cellar with utility space and a gun safe.

      The kitchen lies at the rear of the ground floor. Well-appointed with granite surfaces and contemporary cupboards the breakfast kitchen has integrated Siemens appliances, fridge, freezer and microwave. The kitchen opens on to a small private west facing terrace area and the cobbled courtyard with guest parking and an oak framed style car port beyond.
      The elaborate staircase leads to the landing off which there are four bedrooms, three large doubles and the fourth smaller room which is more suited to a home office, for which it is currently used.

      The principal bedroom suite lies to the front with two large sash windows and fitted wardrobes flanking the period chinoiserie fireplace. A modern bathroom completes the main suite. The second bedroom mirrors the dining room below in proportions and has a window to the front and a fireplace currently housing a safe. The house bathroom is finished in Travertine marble and features a double ended Laufen bath, separate shower, WC and wash hand basin and adjoins the split level third bedroom with window overlooking the communal courtyard.

      The electric gated courtyard is accessed off Cumberland Street via a short cobbled lane and provides for visitor parking as well as a carport and two allocated parking spaces for Cumberland House.

      A small lawned garden extends to the front of the property. Being elevated from Jordangate, they are pleasant and reasonably private with screening shrubs and bushes, perfect for sitting out on a warm summers evening. The garden is secure and dog safe.
