Judy Murray has put her plush country home on the market for £825,000 - with the kitchen and bathroom full of photos of her famous sons.

The proud mum of world number one, Sir Andy Murray, bought Khyber House in 2012 because she wanted somewhere to relax.

It was fully refurbished when Mrs Murray moved in and since then she has carried out extensive redecoration, bathroom improvements and laid a tarmac driveway and parking area.

Built in the 1930s to a traditional Scottish design, with hints of Scots Baronial, the four bedroom family home is in Bridge of Allan, a spa town near Stirling.

The tennis coach has now decided to sell up and has put the home on the market with Savills for £825,000.

She said: "I loved Khyber House from the first time I saw it. It's like a little white castle sitting above the town and looking out over the hills.

"I have a pretty hectic travel and work schedule so it's the perfect place to chill because it's so quiet and peaceful.

"The house is big enough to host the whole family on the rare occasions that Jamie and Andy are home, and its central location makes it easy to commute to the bigger cities and the airports.

"Bridge of Allan is a gorgeous town with lots of character and loads going on."

Khyber House has four bedrooms, two with en-suites, three reception rooms, a family bathroom, gym and double garage.

It sits in a "wonderfully private and secluded position" yet is only a short distance from the University of Stirling and the cafés, independent shops and restaurants of Bridge of Allan.

Harry Maitland, from Savills, added: "Khyber House is a fine family home in one of central Scotland's best kept secrets - a really scenic town that works brilliantly for both east and west commuters.

"It also has a great community feel and fantastic local services, schools and a train station.

"Bridge of Allan is such a central location, equidistant Scotland's largest airports and at the heart of the motorway network.

"Although Khyber House is traditionally built, it has an excellent open plan entertaining and living space.

"The views and the private garden are superb and the property really is in fantastic condition. Mrs Murray is not only her son's most recognised supporter.

"She does an enormous amount of work to encourage children to play tennis running workshops all over the UK so having a house in easy reach of the airports has been ideal."
