This stone built, extended semi-detached three-bedroom Edwardian villa is ideal for those looking for a pleasant and practical family home with flexible accommodation. It extends to around 149 square metres, with the added benefit of a separate garage and is located close to Newton Primary School, and offers easy access to all of Dunblane’s local amenities and excellent transport links.
On entering the property through a storm porch, there is a large and welcoming hallway, which leads to the lounge, a second reception room, downstairs bathroom, spacious kitchen diner, and stair to the upper levels.
The bright, spacious lounge which overlooks the extensive front garden is a generously sized room, complete with a large bay window and working coal fire with decorative wooden fire surround. Original features such as cornicing and wood panelling have been retained, along with wooden skirting and stripped pine doors.
Next to the lounge, a sizeable second reception room overlooks the side of the house. It is currently being used as an extra bedroom/study, but could easily become a generous dining room creating an excellent space for entertaining.
Adjacent, and overlooking the back garden, is the big, bright kitchen extension. This sizeable room accommodates a well-appointed kitchen, with walk-in larder, matching wooden base and wall units, extensive butcher’s block work top, a gas hob, double electric ovens, and built-in microwave, as well as room for a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier. The dining area easily accommodates an eight-seater table, making this space perfect for family dinners or informal kitchen suppers. An additional cupboard houses the gas boiler, which provides the house with heating and hot water.
A bathroom with a white WC, sink and shower completes the accommodation downstairs.
Upstairs, the family bathroom can be found on the mezzanine, with white suite, over-bath shower comprising a Triton unit and a luxurious rainstorm shower head. The ceramic tiles on the walls and tile-effect vinyl on the floor complete the practical installation.
On the first floor, the large, bright rear-facing master bedroom has built-in, mirror wardrobes, while the front-facing second bedroom is a similarly large room, brightly decorated and boasting a shelved Edinburgh press for storage.
In what was the third bedroom, a carpeted staircase leads up to the converted attic, which accommodates a large, sunny bedroom bathed in light from a Velux window with views over Dunblane towards Sheriffmuir. Excellent loft storage can be accessed via a door adjacent to the bedroom.
Outside, the extensive, front garden is laid mainly to lawn with mature shrubs, with a long tarmac drive providing off-street parking for several cars. Double wooden gates guarantee security for pets and a perfect play area for children. There is also a log store and a small wooden garden shed for storage, and behind a low iron fence, in the back garden, a purpose-built covered coal bunker. The back garden is also laid mainly to lawn, with a raised vegetable bed, a greenhouse and a sun-trap paved patio at the rear, ideal for outdoor dining or simply enjoying the fresh air. A single-car garage is accessed from St Margaret’s Loan.
All local services and amenities are readily accessible, while the city of Stirling is only a ten-minute drive to the south. The beautiful and historic City of Dunblane gains its city status from the magnificent 13th-century Cathedral that dominates the local landscape. It boasts primary and secondary schools with first-class reputations, and two are within a few minutes' walk. Dunblane also provides good leisure facilities with a challenging eighteen-hole golf course, numerous sports and social clubs, including the local tennis club and excellent Dunblane Youth and Sports Centre. With its easy access to the road and rail network covering central Scotland and beyond, Dunblane remains a much sought-after area among house hunters.
The date of entry is flexible and by mutual agreement.
Viewing is by appointment through Cathedral City Estates.
