Cornerway is an attractive house with views both to the Garvock Hill and to the glens.

There are two bedrooms, one currently used as a study and a shower room, together with a utility room, store and an integral garage.

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 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.Ruaraidh Ogilvie
