Mansion house was built by Thomas Telford

A HISTORIC 11 bedroom manor house built by the famous engineer Thomas Telford is up for sale.

The detached period property between Moffat and Beattock was constructed in 1822 and is now run as a self catering business sleeping up to 26 people.

Born in 1757, Telford, who was known as ‘The Builder of Britain’, died in London in 1834 just 12 years after building Telford House, which was initially a coaching inn on the important north-south route from Glasgow and Edinburgh to London.

His drawings of the property are still referred to for advice and information by today’s engineers.

It offers well-proportioned rooms and retained period detail including the notable original staircase and balustrade.

It is on the market with Fine and Country for offers over £895,000.
