The Firs nestles on a westerly facing hillside amid a tall mature fir grove.  As you turn into the drive the first thing you notice is the extensive gardens; the long driveway is flagged with white kerbstone and crosses a stone bridge over a small burn which runs into an attractive reed pond alive with water life. To the right is a miniature stone bridge over the burn. Beyond the treeline there are open views to the South, West, and North.


The Firs has oil fired central heating, double glazing, beautiful gardens, generous parking, and an extensive workshop. There is a railway line nearby however this does not detract from the remoteness and peacefulness of this location.


The red gravel driveway leads to the double garage and practical side entrance to the property. A timber door opens onto an entrance vestibule which in turn accesses the boiler-room and the Cottage Kitchen.


The main entrance at the front of the property is approached via attractive red circular steps where a timber door with leaded glass panel opens onto an entrance porch.


ENTRANCE PORCH    9' x 3'7”

The entrance porch has tiled flooring, a window to the front of the property and a glass panel door to the main hallway in the cottage. The hallway is 25'6” x 4'9”, has carpeted flooring, a window to the front, radiator, and accesses the three bedrooms, the bathroom, and the sitting room.


To the left is the:

SITTING ROOM  19'9” x 13'4”

Measured into the bay window, which has beautiful views over the garden and surrounding hillside. A second bay window to the side has lovely northerly views. A false wall was built to create alcoves at either side of the imposing solid fuel stove which has a timber surround and a marble hearth.  The ornate cornice and ceiling rose is easily missed as your eye is taken to the most unusual circular opening to the dining room.


DINING ROOM 17'1” x 13'9”

Located between the sitting room and the kitchen the dining room benefits from natural light via a double glazed window on the side elevation. There are two large storage cupboards off the dining room one 11'7”x4'5” and the second 7'5”x4'10” both storage cupboards have windows.


KITCHEN  12'7” x 15'9”

The Firs, whilst secluded, is only 1.5 miles from the M74 and is convenient for Lanark, Biggar, Central Lanarkshire, and The South.  Exit the M74 at J13 signed Edinburgh A702 and Lanark (A73).  At the roundabout pass the Service Station entrance; pass Edinburgh A702 exit; take the third exit signed Abington A702.  Continue through Abington past the hotel on the right and the convenience store on the left. At the end of the main street turn left onto Station Road. Continue down Station Road where you will cross the river Clyde, then the railway line, at the T junction turn left. Continue along this road for half a mile and The Firs is the white house sitting on the side of the hill on your right hand side.
