Stunning Property Alert!!
We are delighted to present this unique 5 bedroom property to the market. Originally built around 1900 as a gamekeeper’s house, it has been extended and upgraded to a truly delightful family home.
Edgemore, which is of traditional stone construction, is an imposing property. The home is an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional features. The restored doorbell, original cornices, deep skirting boards, original doors and floorboards are complimented by large mirrors to give an air of grandeur. This has been married to a large modern breakfasting kitchen in the extended area.
High Speed Broadband has recently been introduced to the area making working from home entirely feasible and giving access to home entertainment.
The very well-proportioned accommodation is arranged over 2 levels and comprises mainly of the following:
The entrance vestibule leads into the entrance hall which gives access to the front and side aspect spacious drawing room which benefits from a focal cast iron fireplace and original floorboards. The sumptuous dining room, also with focal fireplace and original floorboards, offers an ideal setting for entertaining guests or formal family gatherings. Double doors from this room lead to a useful snug/ family room with coal effect electric fire. The very sizeable breakfasting kitchen is furnished with an impressive range of units, a range style cooker, Belfast sink, granite work surfaces and a central island which offers both storage and seating space for informal dining. The kitchen also boasts significant living space, with ample room for two settees. Bi-fold doors on one wall open out on to a courtyard. Also, on the ground floor there is a magnificent bathroom with roll top bath, tiled double shower cubicle, wc, bidet and stylish his and hers sinks. Additionally, a separate shower room also impresses, boasting a double shower cubicle, wc, and traditional sink with pedestal.
An elegant, original staircase leads to the mid landing where a truly spectacular double aspect master bedroom awaits. With free standing bath, sink, electric fire, and views over the surrounding countryside, it is unclear whether or not you could ever manage to wrench yourself out of this room! A further set of stairs lead to the upper level. There are 4 large double bedrooms on this level, two with feature open fireplaces. Each one is impressive and welcoming. In addition, one bedroom boasts a spacious en-suite shower room with double shower cubicle.
If the house is outstanding (and it is!), the gardens may well be deemed to be the second “pièce de resistance “of this property. The large gardens have been laid out in a series of rooms, with planting in keeping with the age of the house and have been thoughtfully designed for ease of maintenance. Two strategically placed summerhouses provide relaxed settings from which to enjoy the gardens and are perfect for all sorts of entertaining! The gardens are all also a child's dream come true, their appeal and enchantment will be assured always.
Lastly, the property has, as well as another outbuilding, a large double garage with mono bloc driveway providing parking space for several cars.
Viewing of this property is highly recommended to fully appreciate the wealth of its appeal.
Elvanfoot is 45 miles from Glasgow, 49 miles from Edinburgh and 53 miles from Carlisle (all mileages are approximate). The property has a unique advantage, located in a tranquil rural setting within the hamlet of Elvanfoot, yet it is within striking distance of the M74 which means access to both Glasgow and Edinburgh is very straightforward and viable for both work and shopping. Both Glasgow and Edinburgh International Airports are also easily reached via the motorway network. More locally, the towns of Moffat and Biggar, together with the villages of Leadhills, Crawford and Abington, have a wide variety of shops to satisfy most requirements. Furthermore, a good range of sporting activities (e.g. golf, gyms, bowling, and cycle routes), exercise classes and places of interest etc, will keep all the family busy. Nursery and toddler groups are available nearby, Crawford has a newly built Primary school, Biggar offers Secondary school education.
