About this property

  • Pitcon House presents a rare opportunity to acquire a stunning B Listed 18th century classical Georgian country house. The main house stands proudly at the end of a 500m tree-lined driveway and creates a real sense of occasion upon arrival. During the current owners' custodianship, it has been beautifully refurbished with a number of additions and improvements being made including a full fibre broadband connection.

    It is a substantial property, but provides a surprisingly manageable and comfortable living environment, including some 8291 sq ft of space on offer. The accommodation is bright and spacious with classic Georgian proportions. The ground floor begins with an impressive reception hall with a large wood burning stove, oak flooring and an imposing spiral stone staircase leading to the first and second floors and a wine cellar at the mid-level. Located off and to the east is the grand drawing room with large sash and case windows on three sides and a stone open fire. A hallway leads from the reception hall to the library, boot room and WC and then bifurcates to the butler's pantry and on to the impressive formal dining room which has a beautiful open fire with an exquisite carved marble surround and views over the garden.

    The kitchen/breakfast room offers plenty of space for dining, and is well-appointed with a range of built in cabinetry, gas fired AGA and integrated appliances; the central island offers extra surface space. A utility and boiler room houses the gas central heating system which has recently been installed; the pantry and plenty of storage rooms complete the downstairs accommodation.

    The first floor comprises four superb bedrooms, the first with an en suite bathroom and the principal suite with a dressing room and en suite. The rear portion of the first floor has a self-contained two bedroom apartment with sitting room, kitchen, dining room and shower room; this would also work perfectly as three functional offices and has its own independent gas central heating system. The apartment can also be accessed separately from a private entrance and staircase. A further two bedrooms and bathroom are located on the second floor.

    Externally the substantial outbuildings extend to around 2444 sq. ft, and there is a marriage stone dated 1661 with a completely refurbished two room workshop with hot and cold running water and a woodburning stove and the other buildings provide plenty of storage.

    The gardens and grounds of Pitcon House are approximately 95 acres and are truly stunning. They consist of a walled garden, various lawns and parkland surrounded by a diverse and valuable woodland. There are a number of gravel paths and walkways that meander through the policies and along the Pitcon burn. There is opportunity for field sport such as shooting on the estate as well as the right to fish.
