    About this property

    • Pleasance House is a spacious and attractive family home dating back to the 1880s. The house sits in a beautiful residential setting on the edge of the popular and historic village of Falkland, and is nestled amongst its own stunning mature gardens. The house was once the manse for the Free Church which is located a short distance away, and has stunning outlooks over the village rooftops towards East Lomond Hill.

      The front door to Pleasance House opens into the vestibule, from where an original inner glazed door leads into the entrance hall which features ornate cornicing. Two of the house's principal reception rooms sit front facing off the entrance hall. The drawing room has the best ground floor views of the East Lomond Hill and the front garden, as well as a fireplace, original cornicing and a ceiling rose. The sitting room features ornate plasterwork and a window overlooking the front of the house. The family room sits beyond and has a living flame gas fireplace. Across the entrance hall is the dining room and a door from here leads through to the kitchen. The kitchen has natural stone surfaces, a double Belfast sink and integrated appliances which include a four-oven Redfyre range cooker with two hobs, and an electric hob with four rings to the side. The beautiful tiled panel behind the cooker depicts Pleasance House and the backdrop of East Lomond. The garden room sits beyond the kitchen and was added as an extension to the house in 2006. It offers lovely outlooks over the rear garden, with a door leading outside and oak flooring. Other ground floor rooms include a shower room with WC, and a utility room which is plumbed for laundry appliances.

      The main staircase has a characterful curved wooden banister on ornate iron balustrades and is overlooked by a stunning stained glass window. The staircase leads up from the entrance hall to the first floor landing, off which are four double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room. The bedroom above the drawing room has fabulous views to East Lomond Hill. The other front-facing bedroom also has lovely views, along with a fitted wardrobe with integrated sink. There is also an office which could be used as a 5th bedroom, and a family bathroom. The floored attic space above is a large room with two windows, one at each end. This offers excellent potential as additional living space, subject to the necessary consents and the creation of a staircase.

      The mature gardens that surround Pleasance House are fully enclosed by stone walls on three aspects, and a fence on the other. The rear garden is largely laid to lawn and is interspersed with a range of trees, some young, some mature. A patio area sits in the east corner and is in a lovely position to enjoy the evening sunshine and outdoor dining. There is a spacious garden store and a shed. The tarmac driveway has a stone pillared entrance, and sweeps through the front garden and up to the parking area in front of the house.
