    About this property

    • Huntly is a late nineteenth century, Robert Lorimer designed, Arts and Crafts family house which provides superb accommodation over three floors. Throughout the house there is an abundance of natural light and period features including working shutters, plaster work, original fireplaces and timber floors.

      The accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall which has stripped timber floors, fireplace (with working fire) and double doors which open to the drawing room. The drawing room has aspects to the front of the house and a bay window which over looks the garden.

      The main living space is focused on the lovely and bright open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room which has recently been modernised. The kitchen is by Harvey Jones with solid wood, hand painted units complemented by granite work tops. There are integrated Siemens appliances and a four oven Aga. From this living space there are a number of doors which open to the garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is a practical utility room which has pantry cupboards, Belfast sink and laundry appliances.

      Completing the ground floor accommodation is a formal dining room, shower room and W/C.

      Over the first and second floors there are six double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a spacious en suite bathroom and dressing room. From the dressing room a Ramsay ladder provides access to the floored loft. There are two well appointed bathrooms with separate walk in showers.

      On the second floor there is a spacious double bedroom, shower room, two storage rooms and a single bedroom which could also be utilised as a study.

      Externally, the front of the house is approached by a gravelled driveway which provides parking for a number of cars. There is a detached double garage with a remote controlled up and over door and loft storage.

      The main garden area is immaculate with a well maintained lawn edged by mature flower beds, shrubs and trees. There is a kitchen garden with raised beds, fruit cage and greenhouse which has a water supply and electricity. There is a potting shed which provides useful storage.

      Doors open from the kitchen/sitting area to a decked area and patio which provides an ideal space for outdoor entertaining and living.
