A remarkable C listed country house set in nearly 6.4 acres with a walled Italianate garden.
Double storm doors with vestibule lead to an entrance hallway with wooden panelling to dado height. This in turn leads to the main reception hallway with double height ceiling and staircase. The hallway leads to a study, cloakroom and drawing room. The drawing room has a brick tiled heated floor, multi-fuel stove and French doors leading directly onto the Italianate walled garden. Off the drawing room are the morning room and dining room. The morning room is a charming cosy space with an open fire set into a painted wooden Georgian fireplace. The dining room also has French doors onto the garden, a brick tiled and electrically heated floor and rare marble fireplace. From here is a home office and the kitchen which has an electrically heated brick floor, units at wall mounted and counter levels and includes an induction hob. Off the kitchen is a back lobby which leads to a studio/workspace with three sets of French doors, workshop and laundry. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is a handy wood and coal store.
Upstairs from the back lobby are two former bedrooms and a bathroom; the current owners have started a project to turn these two bedrooms into a principal bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and music gallery / studio space. A large gallery/music room/studio space looks to both the internal walled garden and eastwards to the meadow and woodland.
Off the gallery is a first floor landing with bedroom and bathroom which combine to create a guest suite. An extension of the first floor landing is a further gallery space / additional bedroom, off which is a contemporary shower room, sitting room, kitchen space with fitted units and pantry, all of which combine to create a self-contained flat ideal for multi-generational living and/or holiday accommodation. The current principal bedroom with en suite shower room completes the accommodation on the first floor.
Also off the first floor landing is a further staircase to the second floor where there is a bedroom and shower room. There is one additional bedroom on the second floor (making seven bedrooms in all) which is accessed from the galleried first floor landing.
The grounds of Parkhead are quite simply breathtaking. They comprise nearly 6.5 acres or thereby with policy woodland, meadow/parkland and one of the most highly regarded walled gardens in Scotland. Adjacent to the walled garden is a further walled enclosure for fruit and vegetables.
The pièce de résistance of the grounds is the utterly unique 1.4 acre topiary walled garden in which three connecting yew circles form the main structure to the garden, in which shape and balance are key. Each circle is bisected by a horizontal path and planted in a different theme using a wonderful variety of box, fruit trees and all manner of plants. Within each circle, there is a round pond.
