The property also offers three bathrooms, four reception rooms, a study and extensive ancillary accommodation.

Outbuildings – formerly the stables, groom’s house, laundry, stores and garage – offer great scope for a redevelopment project.

Estate agent Fine and Country listed the property yesterday for offers over £625,000.

They said: “Steilston House is a remarkable C Listed Scots Baronial house, built in 1867, and located on a quiet country road just six miles from Dumfries.

“Built of yellow brick traditional construction with sandstone quoins and crow stepped gables under a slate roof, the detached property sits well back from the road in established grounds and enjoys views over the rolling countryside opposite.

“While the property would benefit from a degree of modernisation, it has been beautifully designed and laid out, with well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings, and flexible accommodation.

“There is a plethora of retained period features evident throughout, to include ornate ceiling cornice and plasterwork, deep original skirting boards, sash windows and fireplaces.

“The accommodation comprises four reception rooms, seven bedrooms, three bathrooms, kitchen, study and extensive ancillary accommodation.
