Farmhouse with land and buildings.
Burnroot Farmhouse is an attractive and traditional country property, occupying a very convenient position with easy access on to the A90. As the name suggests it was a farmhouse on a local estate. It faces southeast, with its own paddock in front, and a grassed bank to the side. To the rear are some outbuildings and behind is a useful agricultural storage shed. The house is brick built with a slate roof and is a property that offers considerable potential. It was last occupied about six years ago, but still retains much of its original period character. The external windows are double glazed other than the back hall.
A partially glazed wooden door opens to a timber lined hallway with an understair cupboard. Off this are two reception rooms, each with tiled fireplaces, and a bedroom. The kitchen has fitted units with a sink, electric cooker point and extractor. Beyond this the back hall has a rear door, while the useful downstairs shower room has a washbasin and WC. Stairs lead from the hallway to the upstairs landing which has two timber lined walk in stores. Off this are two coombed bedrooms, each with front facing dormer windows and tiled fireplaces.
The garden in front is mainly down to grass with shrubs. To the side of the house is a corrugated storage shed (6.9 m x 4.5 m), while behind are some brick built stores (4.4 m x 2.9 m x 1), one formerly a laundry. In front of the house is a grass paddock, running between the access road and the burn. On the other side of the burn is a grassed bank. Behind the house is a range of agricultural buildings, part stone built with a corrugated roof (4.8 m x 6.1 m), and part steel framed and block (10.9 m x 20.9 m (approx.)), again with corrugated roof cladding, and a part concrete floor.
While the sellers own adjoining land and buildings the garage on the other side of the access from the house and the timber framed barn behind the agricultural shed are not included.

Burnroot Farmhouse would make an ideal restoration project for a budding developer or a buyer looking to make their own mark on a well located traditional property. The manageable six acres and farm buildings make a smallholding or hobby livestock a definite option too.Ruaraidh Ogilvie
