This superb detached family home is beautifully situated amongst approximately 1.6 acres of naturally themed landscaped gardens with stunning views over the surrounding countryside and towards KnocklaydeMountain in the distance.
The property was constructed approximately 8 years ago and has been meticulously detailed and finished throughout (by the current owners) to provide a comfortable and traditionally styled though modern residence with all the associated benefits one would expect.
This includes well proportioned and flexible living accommodation which is adaptable to suit individual requirements. The layout is currently being used as 5 bedrooms and 3 plus reception rooms which include a master bedroom with ensuite; living room with a stove and built in bookcase; reception hall with attractive wood panelling; country style fitted kitchen and a large feature sun room with access from both the kitchen and the living room.
Gardens are laid out in cottage style planting to the rear of the house with a good sized lawn area to the front. The remainder of the garden is a low maintenance wild garden planted mostly with native species such as rowan, dog rose and willow and is a haven for wildlife, visitors include hedgehogs, red squirrels, cuckoos and ground nesting meadow pipits.
As such it is without hesitation that we recommend inspection to fully appreciate this delightful residence and its choice situation.
