About this property

  • St Brydes
    St Brydes is a historic C Listed country house dating from 1789. The property has undergone a sympathetic and meticulous restoration at the hands of the current owners. The attention to detail and quality of the work is evident throughout.

    Throughout the property there is extensive use of dressed hardwoods, Amtico and limestone floorings with all bathrooms demonstrating a classic finish using Porcelanosa fittings and sanitary ware.

    The property is striking in external appearance and suitably grand internally whilst maintaining an exceptional level of comfort and the relaxed ambiance of a modern family home. Spacious reception rooms, all with magnificent views, offer bright and generously proportioned entertaining spaces. None are more beautiful than the drawing room which boasts a stunning, bespoke Scottish stone and slate fireplace, deep bay windows and exquisite oak panelling. A beautifully appointed kitchen with ample fitted units and a stunning two tiered central island, finished with dark granite work tops, leads into an open plan dining area with stunning views across the gardens and over to ‘The Folly' in the distance. The kitchen is equipped with integral fridge freezers, wine fridges, inset oven and grill as well as a high specification coffee machine and five ring gas range with extractor hood above.

    On the ground floor the principal bedroom suite can be found with beautiful white marble finishes to the en suite bathroom with twin wash basins, freestanding bath, wet zone shower and an integral sound system, which features throughout the house. The bedrooms are all generous in size and each has an appointed and individually styled bathroom. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, and a spacious landing has been made into a cosy sitting room formed with rich wood panelling and a flame effect fire, creating a room which has something of a hunting lodge warmth about it, befitting of a house with its own trout loch.


    Bridesmill Cottage
    Dating from 1700, Bridesmill is a B Listed one bedroom cottage that as well as offering incredible commercial potential as a holiday let, stands as simply beautiful guest accommodation. The quality from the main house continues throughout with French oak flooring and an Alno German kitchen. Once again beautiful views across the gardens and countryside beyond are a key component of its charm and character.


    Gardens and Grounds
    The property is accessed and discovered behind a beautiful stone wall with a bell mouth entry. Striking gate piers on either side lead to the gravel driveway which sweeps in front of the property. Flanked by cherry trees, well manicured lawns lead to a grassed turning circle which in turn branches off towards Bridesmill Cottage. The gardens have been beautifully landscaped with intricate walkways, while the sound of the St Brydes burn running through the grounds with its magnificent falls and rock pools is a wonderfully tranquil backdrop. The garden is surrounded by mulched bark beds with a wide variety of planting including some stunning specimen trees such as a Chilean pine.

    Paddocks and Stabling
    In addition to the planted garden there are fenced paddocks split into two enclosures to suit those with equestrian needs. There are four fully fitted loose boxes with concrete floors, power, light and water.

    Trout loch
    Beyond the paddocks lies a 2.8 acre area of ground with a 1 acre stocked trout loch with mown casting bays. There is an island, inlet and outlet sluices along with aeration equipment.
