    About this property

    • Athas House is an attractive, modern, single storey house which is well located and has easy access to the A90 dual carriageway. The house is believed to date from the 1980s and has since been extended. It has a tiled roof, and faces south over its own pretty garden and agricultural land. There are views north to the hills. Since 2009 the kitchen, bathroom and an en suite shower room have been refurbished and new patio doors were fitted. The sellers acquired the property in 2017 and set about further improvements including a new conservatory, refurbishing the other en suite, renewing the double glazed windows and some of the electrics and plumbing, together with further insulation. As such it is a light and airy house and is ideal for modern family living.

      Gates open onto a tarred driveway which leads past the house to the garage beyond. Doors from the garden open to the conservatory with a tiled floor. The hallway has a shelved and hanging cupboard and a further cupboard housing a Grant oil fired boiler. A sitting room, previously used as a dining room, has a wood burning stove and a picture window. An arch links to the dining kitchen which has fitted units with granite worktops, and Karndean flooring. Appliances include a NEFF double oven/grill and six ring gas hob with extractor, a Zanussi dishwasher, together with a double sink. There is plenty space for dining, and off the kitchen is a back entrance porch. The kitchen, along with the sitting room, connects to a further sitting room, again with a wood burning stove, along with a French door to the garden and wooden flooring. Off this is an office with a shelved airing cupboard and oak flooring which was previously used as a further bedroom. Bedroom 1 has a wardrobe, and an en suite with shower, wash basin, WC and underfloor heating. Also off the hallway is bedroom 2, with a wardrobe, while bedroom 3 has a wardrobe and an en suite with shower, wash basin with vanity unit and WC. Bedroom 4 has wardrobes and connects to the bathroom with bath, shower, wash basin with vanity unit, WC, underfloor heating and a cupboard housing a Samsung washing machine and dryer.

      Outside there is an EV charger and a double garage, with a tiled roof, auto up and over door, and workshop. It has power and light. There is a wooden garden shed and composting bins. The attractive garden is mainly down to lawn with shrub borders and runs down to the burn, which flows into the West Water. There are paved seating areas.
