This unique and traditional semi-detached cottage was built around 1880 and has been fully modernised to offer beautiful accommodation extending to approximately 120 sqm. The property is sure to appeal to anyone looking for a characterful home within a popular area due to its close proximity to the local schools and all amenities. The property also boasts wonderful outside space with a secluded rear garden.
What makes this property really special is the historic Doocot, a former dove house, which is located in the garden. Originally constructed in another part of Dunblane, the circular Doocot was dismantled in 1725 and rebuilt in its current location around 1825. The Doocot is listed by Historic Scotland.
The property comprises entrance hall, lounge, kitchen, conservatory, bathroom, three bedrooms, master with en-suite. All rooms are tastefully decorated and fitted with quality flooring and carpets. There are many traditional features including high ceilings, coving, ceiling roses, and open fireplace.
The house is set within generous mature gardens and the entrance is reached through a large driveway which can accommodate several cars.
Entry to the property is through a stylishly decorated hall, from which all rooms on the ground floor can be accessed.
Leading from the hall is a comfortable and spacious lounge overlooking the side garden. The lounge has a fabulous open fireplace, high ceilings, decorative coving and ceiling rose. There is a French door giving access to the garden.
To the rear of the property is a bright, modern fitted kitchen with a combination of light shaker base and wall-mounted units and wood effect worktops, including stainless steel range cooker with double oven and 5 burner hob, large American fridge-freezer and dishwasher. Leading off the kitchen is a bright, single glazed conservatory with ceramic floor.
