About this property

  • The property dates back to the 19th century but has been significantly modernised and extended by the current owners in 2016.

There are windows overlooking the rear garden along with access onto the paved patio area. A door leads from the kitchen into the light filled garden room with views out across the garden and patio doors opening onto the patio area. The garden room has dressed cut slate flooring, together with part open vaulted ceilings, log burning stove and bi folding oak glazed doors opening into the music room. From the dining area in the kitchen is a door into the original part of the house where the 4th bedroom is located, this is a charming good sized room accessed off a corridor with two exposed granite walls, inglenook with woodburner and access onto the patio. At the end of the corridor is a large storage room which has the potential to be converted into a bathroom if required.
    A staircase ascends from the dining area to the first floor landing off which there are 3 bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom is double aspect looking out over the front of the property and the rear garden with views of the Carp lake and open countryside beyond. The two further bedrooms are of a good size with one having the same view over open countryside as the Principal bedroom. Both bathrooms have modern white 3 piece suites with the family bathroom having an overhead shower.
