About this property

  • Wester Moss is an attractive family home, situated in a popular, rural yet accessible location. The Ochil Hills to the north provide a beautiful backdrop to this house of great charm and convenience, as well as grounds which give it an abundance of rural ruggedness. The original part of the house is thought to have roots dating back to the 1500s, however it has been significantly extended over time. The current owners carried out a substantial extension and renovation of the property in 2010, before carrying out further improvements in 2019.

    The key reception rooms provide fantastic entertaining space and include dining, sitting and family rooms. They flow in an open circuit on the ground floor, connecting with the kitchen (with AGA) at the heart of the house, and offering outlooks over the surrounding countryside. The accommodation is extremely flexible with up to five bedrooms, and a further study which could also be a playroom. The principal bedroom is on the ground floor, with views over the stables, and an en suite bathroom with separate bath and shower. There are three further bath / shower rooms with modern fittings.

    Off the kitchen is the newly added utility room, which gives outdoor access to the recently redesigned covered patio area, overlooking the gardens, riding area and grazing grounds. It is another fantastic area for outdoor entertaining.

    Gardens
    Wester Moss has superb views predominantly to the south and east over its own gardens and grazing fields, as well as the surrounding countryside. A driveway sweeps between the western fields up to electric gates, then past the stables, and to a generous parking area beside the house. The south facing garden is mainly lawn with a mix of plants, trees and shrubs. There is a covered patio area, and a raised timber decked area to the east of the house.

    Stabling, riding arena and grazing fields
    To the west of the house is an original stone built stable block under a pitched roof, with three loose boxes, two tack rooms and a feed store. There is also an electric vehicle charge point installed here. Subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, this building could offer the potential for further accommodation such as a home office, or a self-contained annexe. To the north of the house is a second, timber built stable block with three loose boxes and a covered area for storage. The floodlit riding arena has a sand / rubber surface, is easily accessible from the stables, and measures 60 x 40 metres.

    The grazing land at Wester Moss extends to about 10 acres with the overall acreage adding up to about 11.5. The land is separated into three larger fields, and five smaller paddocks. There is direct access to good hacking trails from the property.
