A fine detached property, built by the famous engineer Thomas Telford in 1822. Presently run as a very successful self-catering business sleeping up to 26 people.

KEY FEATURES Telford Manor House is a fine detached property located between Beattock and Moffat. The property was built by the famous engineer Thomas Telford in 1822, and presently offers substantial self-catering accommodation, sleeping 26 guests, in the perfect spot for exploring Dumfriesshire.
Thomas Telford is perhaps best known for building the Menai Suspension Bridge linking North Wales to Anglesey but he also built numerous canals and roads throughout Britain, the stunning Chirk Aqueduct in North Wales and St Katherine's Dock in London, not to mention the Trent and Mersey Canal, the Birmingham and Liverpool Junction Canal, The Ellesmere Canal and the Caledonian Canal in the Highlands along with numerous churches there. Born in 1757, Telford, who was known as 'The Builder of Britain' died in London in 1834 just 12 years after building Telford House, a Coaching Inn on the important north-south route from Glasgow and Edinburgh to London at Beattock. Indeed, Mr Telford's drawings of Telford House are still referred to for advice and information by today's engineers.
This impressive period property offers well-proportioned rooms and retained period detail including the notable original staircase and balustrade. The flexible layout, excellent transport links and potential to continue with the success of the existing business, make this a very attractive property.
 

LOWER GROUND FLOOR With access directly from the rear courtyard, or via the main stairwell within the house, is a superb space with entertainment room, a secondary kitchen, sitting room, WC and double bedroom with en suite shower room.
This level also offers a self-contained two bedroom apartment, with access gained via the rear of the building. There is a spacious living room, fitted kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom.
 

GROUND FLOOR External stone steps lead up to the impressive vestibule which in turn opens into the reception hall and boasts period detail and a fine central staircase with timber balustrade. To the right of the hallway is the large kitchen/dining room, which enjoys a dual aspect and a fully fitted kitchen. Adjacent to this room is a generously proportioned drawing room, with windows to the rear aspect and a feature fireplace. There are three double bedrooms on this level, as well as two modern shower rooms. 

FIRST FLOOR The impressive staircase continues up to the first-floor landing, with a large window at half landing level. On the first floor, seven well-proportioned bedrooms can be found, one with en-suite WC. In addition there are two modern shower rooms and storage areas. 

OUTSIDE To the front and side of the property are areas of enclosed lawn and patios. There is ample parking.
