About this property

  • Designed by Alexander Mair and constructed in the 1930s of stone under a tile roof this 1.5 storey property occupies a large and well established plot with gravel driveway and extensive mature gardens.

    The house underwent a major refurbishment in 2010 to make it into a beautifully presented family home. The original features such as wood paneling in the entrance hall and solid wood floors are sympathetically mixed with a modern family living layout in the form of the large open plan fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, stunning granite worktops and a spacious island shared with the large dining area creating the perfect entertaining space. To the rear of the property is a boot room, for the muddy wellies from country walks, and a good sized utility room. The drawing room boasts a large open fire and three windows providing far-reaching views. The property benefits from a total of five bedrooms and five bath/shower rooms (three en suite) over two floors.

    The garden is set over several levels with an enclosed garden to the front and a tiered garden to the rear which includes an elevated seating area from which to enjoy the stunning views. There is a large area to the rear of the garage building where there are fruit trees which would be the perfect place to establish a vegetable patch. Within close proximity of the house is a detached brick built garage which currently provides an excellent workshop on the ground floor as well as a useful storage area on the upper floor. This building could be refurbished to create an independent home office or a studio space away from the main house.
