PICTURES: Inside the former Kirriemuir home of JM Barrie… on sale for £160k

Post Thumbnail

The Kirriemuir home of Peter Pan author JM Barrie has been put up for sale.

Barrie lived in the Strath View on Forfar Road with his parents from 1872.

Estate agents Thorntons are asking for £160,000 for the three-bedroom townhouse.

A plaque on the building reads: “The residence of the late Sir James M Barrie Bart, O.M novelist and playwright.”

One of Barrie’s first novels, A Window in Thrums, is said to be written about a small cottage viewed from one of the windows of the house.

The listing for the home states it still has many of its “interesting original features” including “stained glass panelling, feature fire surrounds and ornate ceiling plasterwork”.

The three-storey property is available for viewings now.

The house is not JM Barrie’s birthplace, which is also in Kirriemuir and a National Trust for Scotland visitor attraction in the town.
