Magnificent! Thought to originally date to the mid-19th century, this beautiful home has been lovingly restored and updated in recent years to combine modern family living with a wealth of charm and character.  With a super position in the village enjoying a tremendous view over the valley, the property is set within it’s own beautiful mature gardens and has so much flexibility in the accommodation with the option of its own annex giving options for extended or growing family. 
With much attention to detail such as handcrafted, bespoke cabinetry this five-bedroom, three public room detached property oozes with charm and character and is nicely positioned to enjoy the surrounding countryside whilst being commutable to Edinburgh and Glasgow and within c.5 minutes’ drive of the M74.

The entrance porch gives an immediate nod to the style and character with the combination of tradition with a touch of quirkiness providing a charming home.  The original house is traditional in character with high ceilings and panel doors with working shutters and stripped floors in some rooms.  There is a traditional lounge on the ground floor which has a fireplace with open fire and a twin aspect with a super view to the front.  The original stripped staircase leads to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom, all of which have stripped flooring and enjoy the view to the front.  There is also a bathroom which has had a funky update with quirky tiles and cheerful vinyl flooring.

On the ground floor off the main hallway there is the dining kitchen which absolutely oozes in charm and character with its bespoke cabinetry, stone flag floor and painted stone wall with fireplace and a stove.  There is a large pantry offering great additional storage and a shelved glass cupboard.  There is also space for a range cooker, dishwasher and American style fridge freezer.  This really is a lovely heart to the home which works really well with the large utility room just off which mirrors the kitchen in style and character and also has a door to the side.
Continuing through to the adjoining part of the building the WOW continues! Here there is a beautiful dining room which has a gorgeous stained-glass window and French doors to a lovely, private patio area.  Just off the hallway there is a bathroom which is totally in keeping with the styling of the home with quarry tile flooring, part tiled, part panelled walls, a double ended rolltop bath, shower cubicle with mains shower, w.c. and pedestal wash hand basin.  From the hallway in this area there is an open staircase which leads to another spacious bedroom which also has a study and sitting area.  Through from the dining room is another lovely sitting room which has exposed stone walls, slate flooring, a stone fireplace with stove and a door leading out to the garden.  Another open staircase from here takes you to a further beautifully presented double bedroom.

Externally there is a carport to the side which has a raised deck above which has been perfectly positioned to enjoy the view and gives a lovely spot for al fresco dining or simply just a tranquil place from which to sit and enjoy the view.  There are lots of lovely spots to enjoy in the garden, pretty patios, lovely mature shrubs and trees and a winding lawn taking you to the various spots from which to enjoy the outdoors.  

An impressive, luxurious home which must be seen to fully appreciate the extensive interior, lovely views and fabulous, private garden.
