    About this property

    • Collyhill Croft is a detached one and a half storey traditional style property of stone construction. Estimated to be around 100 years old, there is a more recent single storey extension to the rear. The property offers a superb opportunity to purchase a former estate cottage which in turn provides an excellent canvas for the purchaser to create a modern home in a country setting.

      The entrance door leads into the reception hall, where the staircase leads up to the first floor where bedrooms one and two are located. Situated overlooking the property frontage are two good sized reception rooms: the sitting room and family room. Overlooking the rear garden, bedroom three benefits from storage in the form of an understair cupboard. The kitchen is located within the single storey extension to the rear and also allows for access to the garden. The family bathroom completes the living accommodation.

      Outside, the grounds are mostly undefined, while parts of the grounds at the front and west side of the house are bounded by stone walls. Providing lovely views over the surrounding countryside and agricultural land, within the property boundaries there is also an L-shaped single storey former steading building. Constructed from stone and including a pitched slated roof, the steading may be suitable for conversion, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. It is divided internally into four parts and has an internal floor area of about 135 square metres.
