Magnificent Category B listed Georgian mansion set in a beautiful position.
Dallars House (previously known as Auchenskeigh) was built in 1775. It is a magnificent Category B listed Georgian mansion built of sandstone with rusticated quoins under a pediment that has urns at the base and apex. It was built as a dower house for William and Agnes Cunningham. In 1995 major renovation work took place at Dallars House with the sensitive division of the property into three separate apartments. The house remains under one title and can easily be converted back into the original mansion with the simple removal of blocked doorways. The renovations in 1995 also included a new roof and in 2012 the ground floor flat was renovated.
The accommodation in the East Wing comprises on the ground floor a magnificent grand hallway with parquet flooring and sweeping stone staircase leading to the first floor. The first floor comprises a beautiful drawing room, sitting room, fitted kitchen and cloakroom/WC off the landing. The second floor accommodation includes two beautiful double sized bedrooms with en suites and bedroom three which could be utilised as a bedroom or additional public room. The third floor accommodation comprises bedroom four, bedroom five, bathroom, utility room and roof terrace with balustrade.
The West Wing accommodation comprises: reception hallway and boiler room on the ground floor with sitting room, kitchen and cloakroom/WC on the first floor. The second floor accommodation comprises two double sized bedrooms, family bathroom and the attic floor has an additional bedroom.
The ground floor flat is located to the rear of the property with separate entrance hallway, cloakroom/WC, sitting room with barrel vaulted ceiling, two double sized bedrooms, master bedroom with three piece en suite bathroom, quality fitted kitchen with barrel vaulted ceiling and family bathroom with three piece suite.
The gardens surrounding Dallars House extend to about 2.2 acres and the front gardens are mainly lawned with beech hedge and a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs. To the east side of the front garden there is a beautifully landscaped garden with wildlife pond and Japanese bridge and the rear garden is mainly lawned with mature trees, shrubs, rhododendrons and a timber hut.
