About this property

  • Ochilview is believed to have been built in the late 19th century for the son of a doctor who lived in the neighbouring house. The property has a peaceful and private location overlooking its large south facing garden. The house requires modernisation buts its traditional features and proportions give it the potential to become a beautiful family home once again.

    Ochilview is approached by a short private driveway from Lyndoch Street which arrives at parking in front and to the side of the house. The front door is framed by a pretty painted timber porch and opens via a vestibule to the reception hall which has a sitting room and dining room on either side. The sitting room is a bright room with a large south facing bay window filling it with light. It also has a fireplace. The dining room is currently a more formal room with a charming astragal window and an arched alcove to the rear. A door from the dining room links to the kitchen which has space for a dining table. Also at the rear of the house is a utility room, cloakroom, WC and store.

    A carved timber staircase rises from the reception hall to the first floor landing where there are four well-proportioned double bedrooms and one bathroom. A large box room and a dressing room would both lend themselves well (subject to obtaining the relevant planning consents) to becoming additional bath or shower rooms. The principal bedroom is impressive and historically, when the trees were smaller, framed a view to the Ochil Hills.

    Ochilview is set in about half an acre of mature garden. Although the garden has become overgrown in recent years it is easy to see the potential it offers, and it has a lovely southerly aspect.
