    About this property

    • Hawkhill House is a pretty former farmhouse, situated in an elevated position with lovely views out over Lunan Bay. The house is most attractively built of local red sandstone, and has a slate roof, together with a date stone of 1848. It is a spacious, imposing and well laid out house, which still retains many of its original features such as cornices in the principal reception rooms and main bedrooms, together with panelled doors. With good sized reception rooms and five bedrooms, along with extensive gardens, it is perfect for both family living and for entertaining. The house is mostly double glazed, with some of the windows having been re-done in the last few years, and the shower room has been recently refurbished.

      Stone gate piers with a wooden gate open onto a gravelled drive which leads up to parking and turning at the front of the house. Steps lead up to a partially glazed front door which opens into a porch with an inner partially glazed and etched door to a welcoming hallway. This has a staircase to the first floor and a tiled floor. Off this is the double aspect sitting room with a picture rail, window shutters, fireplace with wooden mantel housing a wood burning stove and a shelved press. Opposite is the fine dining room with a picture rail and window shutters. The study also has a picture rail and window shutters along with a wooden mantel and recessed shelves.

Appliances include an under counter Beko fridge and freezer, Leisure Rangemaster 110 cooker with four ring gas hob, griddle, hotplate, double oven, grill and warming drawer with extractor, together with a Blomberg dishwasher and a Belfast sink. In addition, there is a warming wood burning stove, recessed shelves, stone tiled floor, ample space for informal dining and French doors leading to a terrace overlooking Lunan Bay. The back hall has original stone walls, a back door, fitted hanging cupboard, tiled floor and back stairs to the first floor. Off this is a timber lined utility room with a Belfast sink, Blomberg dryer, Miele washing machine, cupboard housing an oil fired boiler and two further shelved and hanging cupboards. A side passage gives access to a car port and there is also a downstairs timber lined bathroom with a tiled shower cubicle, pedestal washbasin, bidet and WC.

      A pretty hanging stone staircase which has cast iron balustrades, a wooden handrail and is lit by a large etched window, leads to the first floor landing. Bedroom one, which overlooks Lunan Bay has window shutters and a tiled fireplace with wooden mantel. Bedroom two also has window shutters. The shower room has a walk in shower cubicle with wet walling together with a washbasin, WC and window shutters.

    Local information

    • Hawkhill House is situated in a lovely position just inland from Lunan Bay – an award winning beach popular with surfers, dog walkers and horse riders on the Angus coast. This part of the Angus coastline is mainly red sandstone with notable cliffs, rock features and sandy bays. As well as Lunan Bay, other popular beaches are found at Montrose and St Cyrus. There is an attractive coastal walk from Lunan Bay to Arbroath via Auchmithie. Sea fishing has long been associated with the area, especially in Arbroath, famous for its “smokies”, as well as at Auchmithie and Usan. The surrounding countryside is rolling fertile farmland and there are nature reserves at Montrose Basin and St Cyrus. Salmon and sea trout fishing is available locally on the North and South Esks. There are golf courses at Montrose and Arbroath, together with the championship course at Carnoustie. There is a marina at Arbroath, while inland are the Angus glens.
    • The nearby village of Inverkeilor is just to the south, off the A92 coast road, and provides primary schooling. Gordon's at Inverkeilor is an award winning restaurant, while the Lunan House Hotel has a bar and grill. Secondary schooling is available at Montrose and Arbroath which both offer a full range of shopping, business and leisure facilities. Private schooling is found at Lathallan and Dundee High School.
    • Inverkeilor is within easy driving distance of both Dundee and Aberdeen which provide all the services expected of major centres. Dundee's cultural attractions include the V&A, Scotland's design museum. There are train stations at Montrose and Arbroath with regular services to Aberdeen and to the south, including a sleeper. Aberdeen Airport has a wide range of flights and there are services from Dundee to London City. Journey times to Aberdeen and its airport have been much reduced by the Western Peripheral Route.
