Handsome C listed stone built Victorian villa overlooking the Dollar Burn close to Dollar Academy.
Huntly House is believed to date from about 1880 and has been owned by one family for 100 years. It is a most attractive house with decorative timber facings and a stone wall running around the front of its corner sited garden. The property is situated on arguably the prettiest street in Dollar. It overlooks the Dollar Burn, has views to the hills and is only a short walk to the shops and Dollar Academy.
The front door of Huntly House opens to a vestibule with a broad glazed door opening to the reception hall. From the hall there is access to all the principal living rooms. Either side of the front door are two beautifully proportioned formal rooms most recently used as a drawing room and a sitting room. They both overlook the Burnside and having the original fire surrounds, floorboards, doors and windows with shutters, they have charming traditional character. The sitting room also has a wood burning stove. Behind the sitting room is the dining room which is similarly well proportioned and retains its original tiled fireplace. To the rear of the drawing room is the kitchen which is fitted with wall and base units on two walls. The kitchen overlooks the side of the house and also retains some delightful original features with the alcove for the original range still in situ, a ceiling pulley and the old staff bells. Beyond the kitchen is the rear hallway, a good sized utility room, a larder and the back door. Beneath the stairs is a cloakroom with shower.
A splendid carved timber staircase rises to the first floor where a split landing leads firstly to the original maids' accommodation which now consists of a single bedroom and bathroom. The main landing gives access to all the principal bedrooms. As with the ground floor accommodation, the rooms are all beautifully proportioned, with high ceilings and large windows. The master bedroom and second bedroom look over the Burnside and have fabulous views over Dollar and to the hills. The second two bedrooms have views of the garden and there is also a family shower room on this floor.
The garden at Huntly House is mainly laid out to the north side of the property allowing the south side to be used for off street parking and access to the double garage. A border planted with spring bulbs and herbaceous plants wraps around the front and sides of the house. There is also a rose bed and two ancient apple trees on the north side of the house. A path lined on one side with box hedge leads up to the top of the garden where there is a wonderful opportunity to create an upper level with lovely views and vehicular access from Sorley's Brae.
