Property Details

Archbald Moffatt House, Academy Road, Moffat
A delightful mid-Eighteenth Century stone townhouse built in 1751 for Archbald Moffatt, Kirk Elder and linen weaver. It is a vernacular building, B Listed and comprises a ground, first and attic floors with an attached Outhouse and courtyard garden.

The front door is original, the windows are hardwood, all handmade in 2011 with handblown glass by Norgrove Studios. The house was built originally as an L Plan, thatched and with a turnpike stair in the re-entrant angle which serviced ground, first and attic floor. House research, history and documents are available along with the original copperplate deeds dating from 23rd February 1751.
