  • Three bed unique family home
  • Sympathetically renovated to retain its gothic drama
  • Modern and stylish kitchen
  • Large open plan living room and dining area
  • Fabulous mezzanine area taking your gaze to the original rafters above
  • Spacious master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom
  • Further two double bedrooms
  • Tremendous views overlooking the river Clyde and across the valley

Part of a beautifully converted church, 69 Carlisle Road is a superbly located unique family home with tremendous views overlooking the river Clyde and across the valley to the hills beyond. This impressive sandstone building has been sympathetically renovated to retain its gothic drama whilst providing a charming family home, first constructed in 1874 and converted at some point in the 90s with many upgrades in more recent years.

The entrance to the property is to the front through a dramatic vestibule with large ornate timber doors. On entering you are immediately aware of the imposing proportions with a high staircase leading up to the first floor living areas. To the left is a modern and stylish kitchen with its own stained-glass window. The stained-glass windows from the church have been retained and modernised with secondary double glazing on the inner ledges.

To the other side of the hall is the family living room. This huge space provides a large open plan area encompassing a living room and dining area. Above, a gallery runs on two sides of the space giving a fabulous mezzanine area and taking your gaze to the original rafters above.

One of the really useful features of this house is its suitability for downstairs living if required. To the rear of the hallway, there’s a large double bedroom with a family bathroom adjacent to it. This is a perfect arrangement for extended family or visiting friends and relatives. To the rear there is an additional vestibule/boot room which provides access to the rear garden. The downstairs hall contains a large under stairs storage area, and part way up the stairs there is further large storage space built to the side of the staircase. The staircase itself leads to the extensive gallery/mezzanine which provides a perfect study area for those who now work from home and negates the need to use a bedroom as a study.

On the other side of the gallery there are two bedrooms, including a large master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. This bedroom is brightly lit by two large double Velux windows which look over the open countryside to the rear. Looking out to the front is the third double bedroom. This room provides further surprise - a staircase that leads to an attic store room.

The outdoor areas have an outlook at the rear of the house across the river and valley to the hills beyond. A path runs around the property leading to the driveway and parking area to the front as well as an additional side garden.
