Property Details

The Property

This six bedroomed deceptively large stone built steading has been renovated to a high standard and would make a beautiful family home. Set in the rural area of Bilbster and in excellent decorative order, the accommodation consists of lounge, kitchen, dining room, family room, utility room, six bedrooms (one with en-suite) and bathroom. The property benefits from oil central heating and is double glazed throughout. There is a gravel driveway at the front of the property with parking for several vehicles. An enclosed drystone wall surrounds the property which is mainly laid to grass and stepping stones. Two adjoining outbuildings lie adjacent to the property, one which is currently used as a garage and the other, a workshop, both benefitting from power and light. There are excellent open countryside views over farmland and beyond.
