Former manse with beautiful gardens in idyllic countryside location with stabling and paddocks.
Dalton Burn is a beautiful, substantial detached period manse which formerly served the nearby Dalton Kirk (which is located in the village itself). The house is stone built with a pitched slate roof and is presented over three floors with a basement.
From the gravel parking area a solid timber front door gives entry into a tiled vestibule from which a part glazed door leads into the reception hall where there is a woodburning stove and seating area.
The ground floor accommodation is all accessible from the hall including the light and modern kitchen/breakfast room which has windows on three sides. There are a range of cream coloured floor and glazed wall units with granite style worktop, double Belfast sink and a matching central island with a small stainless steel sink inset. A black four oven AGA provides cooking facilities with a timber mantle over.
The sitting room is dual aspect and has a wood burning stove with timber mantlepiece surround. The large drawing room opens out into a south facing sun room and features an open fireplace with marble effect surround.
The dining room is dual aspect and again has an open fireplace with timber surround and an alcove which is partly shelved with cupboards below.
A WC completes the ground floor accommodation.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor, the principal having a dressing room attached. There is also a shower room and a family bathroom.
The second floor has a further two bedrooms (with coombed ceilings), and a shower room. The basement provides a large utility/laundry room, WC and a generous home office with French doors to the garden. There is also a range of sizeable storage cupboards.
There is a gravel parking area to the front (north) of the house by the main door adjacent to a range of mature trees and established shrubbery with areas of lawn and grass paddocks. Here there is also a long stone and slate barn which provides garaging and dry storage and could equally be used for kennelling, workshops or horses. A purpose built shelter in the adjacent field to the west provides two loose boxes for horses or sheltered storage for machinery. The gardens to the south of the property are enclosed by a well established hedge which provides a private and sheltered area of lawn with herbaceous borders and shrubbery.
Dalton Burn is offered with approximately 13.8 acres of farmland, ideal for grazing and mowing.
A further 22 acres adjoining the property is available by separate negotiation, as shown labelled "Lot 2" on the sale plan.
