    About this property

    • Laverockdale Garden House is a highly individual, split level house in a secluded setting, designed to take full benefit of its wonderful gardens.

      A private road leads from Dreghorn Loan to the house with double electric gates opening to a secluded courtyard with parking for several cars. A double garage faces the main gates and to the north side of the courtyard there are extensive garden stores and cellar, which could be converted, subject to the necessary consents. The entrance to the house lies to the south of the courtyard with an attractive glass and oak vestibule leading to a spacious reception hall from which the main public rooms open.

      The property provides a fantastic blend of living and entertaining spaces with four luxuriously appointed bedrooms, ideal for families. There is a delightful and spacious living room with a triple aspect overlooking the garden, which floods the room with light and a high-spec stylish kitchen, with integrated Siemens appliances, that extends into a predominantly glass structured dining area with multi-fuelled stove and bi-folding doors which open onto the garden. There is a separate utility room and store.

      The master bedroom suite has a walk-in, fitted dressing room, large en suite with a separate bath and shower and twin sink. The second double bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath.

      There is a wonderful sense of continuity from inside to out with a superb decked terrace facing south towards the lawn and a fantastic raised decked terrace area providing a lovely space for barbequing and summer dining. The garden itself has many fine specimen plants and trees and is intersected by the Bonaly burn with a bridge leading towards a summerhouse at the southern end of the lawn. Glass balustrades run alongside the burn.

    I love the connection between inside and out, and the expansive south-facing garden has to be one of the best I have seen recently!
