Lovely to see this super family home on the front cover of 25 Beautiful Homes.
Set in an idyllic setting of 3.8 acres within the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, with panoramic views of Ben Lomond and Ben Ledi, the house has been re-built after a fire with every modern comfort whilst retaining the character of the original 150 year old farmhouse. It really is so cosy and welcoming and believe it or not – for sale!
A cosy carpet is a must have addition in a beautiful but spacious bedroom.
With 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, cloakroom and sauna, exposed beams, oak flooring, open fireplaces, this property is spacious and luxurious and is a must to view.
The open plan family kitchen, complete with island unit and AGA, has windows to all sides, giving stunning forest views. There is an abundance of natural light flooding into all the rooms which pleasingly flow, providing a good mixture of privacy and conviviality. There are two additional living rooms, both with exposed beams, one with an open fire and the other with a log burning stove, also with far reaching views beyond. Adjoining the main house is a garage, workshop and sizeable stone barn, with windows and upper floor, currently utilised for storage. This has excellent potential for a granny flat or office, subject to the relevant planning consent.
The property is in particularly a tranquil setting and is surrounded by lawns and herbaceous borders, together with a decked sunbathing area, orchard, greenhouse and a good sized vegetable patch enclosed by beech hedging. The area is handy for all the main Scottish cities, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling and is served by excellent schools and enjoys a friendly local community in the local village.
