About this property

  • Snypes Cottage is a beautiful C Listed, 1 ½ storey home with self-contained annexe occupying a secluded rural position overlooking Snypes Dam and the surrounding countryside. The fantastic plot is approximately an acre in size and is accessed via electric gates and surrounded by a stone dyke.
    Originally built in the 1600s and cherished and upgraded by the current owners, Snypes Cottage offers extremely versatile living space. The main accommodation and annexe extends to around 3784 sq ft including the garage and the store and is set over two floors with five bedrooms in its current configuration. An entrance vestibule leads to the main hallway that has a utility room, WC and staircase leading up to a guest bedroom and shower room. The stunning drawing room to the right of the hallway has a dual aspect outlook over the garden and an impressive stone fireplace with multi fuel stove.
    To the left of the hallway the kitchen/dining room is well-proportioned and appointed, with granite worktops, a range of floor and wall mounted cabinetry, range stove, flagstone floor and a door that leads out to the garden at the rear and another door opening through to the beautifully decorated lounge with hardwood floors, multifuel stove and high level mood lighting creating the perfect space to relax or entertain. French doors open to the rear hallway which leads to another bedroom and shower room on the ground floor and a staircase leading up.
    Upstairs there are another two bedrooms and a home office. The principal bedroom benefits from a freestanding bath positioned to take advantage of the views over the countryside, and a stylish en suite shower room.
    A fantastic addition to the property is the separate annexe which offers superb secondary accommodation or a short term rental/lifestyle opportunity. It comprises a living room, kitchen, shower room, bedroom and separate sitting area on the mezzanine level.
    Externally, the gardens and grounds of Snypes Cottage are wonderful. Measuring approximately an acre in size and offering complete privacy and seclusion, the garden is mainly laid to lawn and is planted with a range of mature shrubs and trees. The property further benefits from an outdoor dining patio & carport with an EV charging unit. Snypes Cottage is perfectly positioned to enjoy Snypes dam and the nearby Neilston pad (a distinctive local hill) with a gate at the bottom of the garden giving easy access to the many walks on offer.
