Prestigious village house.
Kincardine is one of the best modern houses in Edzell. The Glebe is a short cul de sac, on the edge of the village, with a number of attractive properties, yet is within easy walking distance of the shops and facilities in the village. It was built some 15 years ago by Kirkwood Homes, who are well known for designing and building luxury homes in desirable locations. It is one of a bespoke pair of similar houses and has been in the seller's family since new. It has been built to a high specification to offer comfortable and well laid out accommodation. Particular care was given in its design to ensure that it is a spacious and well laid out house, which is ideal for both modern living and for entertaining with an interlinking hallway and dining room which connects on to a spacious drawing room, and to an open plan kitchen, living room and sun room. As well as the principal bedroom suite and a study, a useful utility room, cloakroom and double integral garage complete the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs is a galleried landing, overlooking the dining room and four further bedrooms, one of which is en suite, and a family bathroom. The house has been well maintained and is well presented. It is an attractive detached house, which is harled with stone finishes and a tiled roof, and is fully double glazed and has mains gas central heating. While modern it has many traditional features such as dormers, together with cornicings throughout the ground floor and on the landing, and also benefits from roof mounted panels.

There is a useful partially tiled cloakroom with washbasin with vanity unit and a WC. Double opening doors lead through to the drawing room. This is a fine west facing room with a bay window, four wall lights, fireplace with marble mantel, surround and hearth housing a gas fire. On the other side of the dining room is the open plan kitchen, living room and sun room which overlooks the garden. The sun room has French doors to a paved terrace, while the fully fitted kitchen has wall and floor units with composite work tops, tiled splashbacks, soft closing drawers, circular sink and a two oven gas AGA with an electric side module with hob and two ovens.
