At this time of year properties with gardens are very attractive, and this is a stunner, writes Beverley Brown
Gardens are a key selling point at this time of year and an upgraded 1960s house in the historic conservation village of Culross – where the 16th century Palace gardens are achingly beautiful – has a unique selling point with walled gardens extending to nearly an acre. Situated just below Culross Abbey, Parleyhill is a four bedroomed villa configured over two floors to give a three bedroomed home on the upper level with a self-contained abode (lounge, shower room, double bedroom and utility) downstairs. Both upper and lower levels have balconies with views over the gardens to the Firth of Forth beyond, but while the house design is modern, the walled gardens landscaped in the last 20 years have age, character, superb planting – and have been opened in the past as part of Scotland’s Gardens charity. Offers over £450,000 are invited by Baird Lumsden’s Bridge of Allan office.
