    About this property

    • Cornerway is an attractive house with views both to the Garvock Hill and to the glens. The house was originally built in 1978 and was designed to make the most of its setting and is ideal for family living. It is fully double glazed and benefits from oil fired central heating, is brick built with a Fyfe stone and roughcast finish with a tiled roof. The accommodation is arranged over two floors. At ground floor level there is hallway, sitting room with large picture windows making most of the views and a practical dining kitchen. There are two bedrooms, one currently used as a study and a shower room, together with a utility room, store and an integral garage. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, a further shower room and store room. The kitchen was refurbished in the early 2000s while the downstairs shower room was redone in about 2010. The house has traditional features such as cornices in the principal rooms.

      There is a gravelled parking and turning area at the side of the house. A paved path leads to a partially glazed front door with a side light, which opens to an entrance vestibule with an inner partially glazed door, also with a side light, to the hallway. This has a staircase to the first floor, and arranged off this is the sitting room which has picture windows, together with a cast iron fireplace with wooden mantel and tiled inserts. Bedrooms one and two are either side of the hallway, with bedroom two having a built in hanging wardrobe and is currently used as an office. The tiled shower room has a shower cubicle, washbasin and WC. The well proportioned dining kitchen has ample space for dining and seating. The fully fitted kitchen area has wall and floor units with soft closing drawers, incorporating a Belling double oven / grill, Lamona four ring ceramic hob with extractor, Kenwood dishwasher, Ignis under counter fridge and a sink. Beyond is the utility room housing a Grant oil fired combi boiler, sink, AEG washing machine and with a fitted hanging storage cupboard. Beyond this is a rear lobby with back door and a store room with fitted shelves and a door to the integral garage which has a concrete floor, power and light.

      A wooden staircase leads to the first floor landing. Both bedrooms three and four have fitted cupboards, while the shower room has wet walling, a corner shower cubicle, washbasin and a WC. Also off the landing is another useful store room.

      The garden to the front is down to grass with wooden fencing with a gravelled parking and turning area to the side. To the rear of the house is an area of decking and an hexagonal summer house (2.95 m x 2.95 m).

      Adjacent is part of a field, extending to about 0.5 acres, and which could be a useful paddock. If not required then this could be retained by the sellers.

    The convenient and open rural outlook at Cornerway, looking out to the Garvock Hill and the glens, is very special. With excellent, well proportioned accommodation and good city connections, I think this is a family home with much to recommend it.
