Constructed c.1900 by an Edinburgh merchant as his country retreat, Oakdene House (known locally as ‘the round house’) is a beautiful, red sandstone 3 bed, 3 public room detached, character property which has a super outlook across open farmland toward Tinto Hill to the rear and to Quothquan Law to the front. With a good-sized garden, large monobloc driveway and double garage, this substantial property has lots to offer. Oozing with original character evident from the outset, this is a delightful property with the two public rooms to the front and the main bedroom having the character of the circular feature of the property. The lounge has a cosy multi-fuel stove, beautiful cornicing, panel door and panelling to the windows, there is also a shelved alcove. The dining room also has wooden panelling to the windows, a feature fireplace and a lovely original built in cabinet. The breakfast room could work equally well as a study or family room and is positioned adjacent to the kitchen which has been refurbished over recent years with a good range of modern, cream units with space for a cooker, washing machine and fridge freezer. A door to the side porch from the kitchen offers a useful additional space and leads to the rear path, garage and parking. The accommodation on this level is completed by the bathroom which has also been refurbished over recent years. On the upper floor there is a charming roundel on the landing offering a peek of the view across to Quothquan Law, which is also enjoyed from the main bedroom. The two further bedrooms are both positioned to the side and have built in cupboards. Externally the garden and outstanding views are a real asset to the property. The large double garage to the rear and driveway offer parking for numerous vehicles. With a good area of lawn, flower and shrub borders and ample space for vegetable beds if wished, there is something to offer everyone in this delightful property.
