Fabulous family accomadation
Large private rear gardens
FLEXIBLE ACCOMODATION THAT LENDS ITSELF TO DUAL OCCUPANCY OR ONE IMPRESSIVE FAMILY HOME
Set in a strategic central Scotland position, this impressive traditional sandstone three storey property built in 1835 now seeks a new owner. Packing a real punch in interior design standards this property must be viewed to appreciate the quality of finish on offer. Lovingly restored and modernised this home offers endless solutions to your accommodation needs. Whilst the property has been lived in as one large family home recently, the conversion works to the ground floor have resulted in the potential for private / self-contained living space for a multigenerational family or for many other purposes. This is the ideal home for a growing family or those just looking for a bit more space to spread their wings.
Following planning permission, change of use and the necessary building warrant, during the past three years' this ideal family home has undergone comprehensive renovation and modernisation on each of its three levels. Lovingly restored with a great eye and attention to detail, the home retains a traditional feel yet offers all the convenience of modern living. Whilst the top two floors retain the original Georgian features, a new bathroom and kitchen have helped to add much character through the creative use of colour, texture, furnishings and artwork. Most of the rooms here mix modern happily with the Georgian window panelling, deep skirtings, traditional doors, tall ceilings and cornices etc.
On the ground floor which was previously a commercial unit, the approach has been entirely modern with the complete interior strip out resulting in all new insulated floors, walls and ceilings, LED downlights and laminate flooring throughout. This new two bedrooms self-contained 'flat' has its own gas boiler, vertical radiators, new electrics, plumbing and bathroom (which contains a small laundry area), along with open plan kitchen with feature island and living/lounge space. The gas and electrical supplies here are separate to those in the accommodation above which was a three bed self-contained flat above the ex-commercial unit.
With current trends reducing the amount of time people want to spend commuting and / or work a traditional five-day week in an office, this property offers an exciting opportunity with considerable space for home working or for anyone self-employed &/or running a small business. The front ground floor bedroom was designed for home working and has had Cat 6 cabling installed for fast internet connectivity. Beneath this new ground floor self-contained space is a large cellar area spanning the width of the property providing limited headroom but great storage. Access is via steps beneath a trap door in the kitchen floor.
Linking the modern ground floor with its own front and back door to the accommodation above is a unique external sandstone turret with stone spiral steps which at the bottom lead out via the main door to the garden area and at the top lead into the main upper storey hallway with a stunning Georgian stained glass panelled door. Light pours into this previously gloomy turret staircase through a skylight in the new insulated turret roof. On this first floor, there is the family kitchen with ample floor and wall mounted units including a kitchen island. The true hub of the home, this room offers the perfect layout for entertaining or modern family life. There is also space and plumbing for a washing machine with a tall larder alongside.
The dining room is opposite across the hallway with easy access to the adjoining lounge, perfect for more formal dining. The lounge is a bright airy room with high ceilings contributing to the feeling of space, and a focal point fireplace offers a great space to relax in the evening. A further good sized room off the hallway could become another double bedroom, home office or playroom. A second flight of stairs leads up to the two large light filled double bedrooms and a modern bathroom with white three-piece suite, black over- bath shower, stone hand basin and a wonderful view of the trees in the garden. All windows in the property on all floors are triple glazed with the front ground floor ones also made of toughened glass.
Back downstairs, the main door from the turret leads into the substantial garden where, beyond the private parking area, privacy and security are maintained by pedestrian and vehicle double gates. The mature garden beyond is long, south facing and full of a variety of trees, vegetable patches, mature flowering shrubs and plenty of secluded places to sit and relax or play games on the grassy area at the back, left uncut purposely for pollinators.
This large and unique property with its two self-contained units currently utilised as one large family house lends itself to many permutations combining family life and home working interests perhaps now or in the future as well as offering the possibility of income generation through holiday letting or via a return to commercial usage (all changes subject to the usual formal consents and council tax / business rating assessments etc). Alternatively, the property could be bought by friends or relatives to live together but each with their separate space or formally turned into two flats to rent out. The possibilities seem almost endless, a bit like the garden!
