About this property

    This beautiful family home occupies an enviable, private position concealed behind a mature leylandii hedge. The Old Smiddy is a brick-built chalet style villa constructed under a slate roof and extends to approximately 2015 sq ft internally.

    The living space begins with a bright welcoming hallway with stylish WC off and a staircase leading upstairs. To the left is a spacious sitting room with dual aspect outlook onto the garden. Off the hallway the light and airy L shaped open plan dining room and kitchen is a superb sociable space; the dining room is beautiful and has a woodburning stove and French doors leading out onto the terrace. The kitchen is well appointed with a range of fitted contemporary units with integrated appliances and a breakfast bar. A handy utility room completes the downstairs accommodation.

    Upstairs The Old Smiddy has four well-proportioned double bedrooms, with the principal bedroom of particular note with its walk in dressing room. Also, on this level is the family bathroom with separate shower, bath, WC and low level wash hand basin.

    Externally the home has a split level garden. The front is mainly laid to lawn with a path leading up to the front door of the property. To the rear there is a stone patio and garden area with a gate leading directly out into woodland and Campsie Dene Road.

    The garage has access from the front and rear leading through to a lower courtyard, ideal for parking a vehicle or storage. The garage is spacious and has an upstairs storage area.
