About this property

  • Craigentor House was built in 1836 for the retiring minister of Monzie Kirk. With its bow fronted windows, fanlights, painted timber fascias and warm pink sandstone, it has a particularly pretty façade. The property is B Listed and its Georgian features and proportions give the house wonderful character internally and externally. The timber lined entrance vestibule with its chequered floor tiles opens to a welcoming reception hall. The drawing room and dining room are on either side of the hall with bowed French windows filling the rooms with southerly light. The drawing room has, a wood burning stove and access to a charming hidden study. The dining room with its pretty fire surround and gas stove is a perfect for entertaining. Behind is the open plan dining kitchen which has French windows to the garden. The kitchen has a central island and a four oven scarlet AGA as well as room for comfortable seating and a dining table. On the ground floor there is also a WC and utility room.

    On the first floor the principal bedroom overlooks the front garden and has an en suite shower room and dressing room. There is also an en suite guest bedroom and one further bedroom and a family bathroom on this floor. On the second floor are three surprisingly bright and spacious bedrooms as well as a shower room. There is plenty of storage in the eaves.

    Office
    Integral to the house but with its own front door is the office which currently consists of two rooms and a WC on the ground floor with a staircase to one large room above. Subject to obtaining the relevant consents this part of the house could be adapted to form an independent cottage for a relative or for letting purposes. It is already ideal for buyers who run a business from home and have a specific requirement for office space.

    Outside
    The entrance to Craigentor is through an old stone wall with white painted wrought iron gates. Mature trees and rhododendrons line the private driveway which leads to a gravel turning circle at the front of the house and also to parking beside the garage at the rear. The grounds extend to about 2.86 acres with the Bog Burn running down the eastern boundary. Beautiful old trees and well established shrubs provide almost total privacy in the garden which is mainly lawn.

    Walled garden plot (available separately)
    To the northeast of Craigentor House is the former walled garden which extends to about 0.69 acres and is outlined in blue on the sale plan. The site is now grass with conifers. Planning permission is being sought (awaiting approval) for the construction of a 1 3/4 storey house deigned by The James Denholm Partnership. Access will be taken from the road which serves the neighbouring properties behind Craigentor House. Services have been brought up to the site. From the walled garden there is direct access to Milquhanzie Hill and endless walks beyond.

Although the house is on the edge of a village it is completely hidden from view and is wonderfully private.
