The previous Gillespie Manse dating back to c.1912, this much-loved family home has been beautifully refurbished and upgraded over the years in keeping with the original character of the property. Set over three floors this substantial home offers masses of flexibility and options of how you may wish to use the accommodation, with a super conversion on the upper floor for guests or teenagers and the option of downstairs living if desired.

Entering from the front the charm and character of the property is immediately evident with the studded front door leading into the vestibule with its mosaic tile floor and half stained-glass panel door into the beautiful internal hallway.  Retaining much of the original character and grandeur of the former manse the property has been upgraded to give a super flow for modern family living and entertaining.

The two main public rooms are positioned to the front of the property with the formal lounge being a stunning room with a large bay window looking out to the garden and the original fireplace with high mantle now housing a cosy modern stove.  The second sitting room is another impressive room, again retaining many fine features, with double French doors opening through to the dining room which works well for everyday family use and for entertaining. The breakfasting kitchen is positioned adjacent and with its bespoke crafted kitchen, vaulted ceiling and a roundel window over French doors leading to the garden, it has been beautifully updated and oozes character.  All the modern requirements are catered for with underfloor heating, integrated appliances and a utility room, pantry and entrance porch with space for coats and boots, ensuring all practicalities are catered for.  The accommodation is completed on this level by a large shower room and a double bedroom which could serve equally well as a further sitting room or home office.

A wide staircase sweeps to the first floor with the spacious hallway again having many fine features and archways leading to the bedrooms.   The Master Bedroom is a magnificent, large room mirroring the formal lounge below with its bay window and size and with super views to the south.  There are a further three spacious double bedrooms on this level and the family bathroom which has modern fittings and classic style with a double ended bath with over bath mains shower and a wall hung wash hand basin. 

On the upper floor is the super conversion which has worked incredibly well over the years in housing teenagers within their own space and extended family for longer visits. 

Externally there is a spacious, gated driveway with parking for numerous vehicles leading to the double garage and rear entrance porch to the property.  The enclosed garden to the front and side is bounded by a high hedge offering privacy and seclusion, with mature shrubs and trees and an area of lawn edging a lovely, large patio area which offers a super entertaining space which is again totally in keeping with the character of the property.

Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate all this extensive property has to offer.
