This substantial detached villa is located in an enviable position at the foot of a quiet cul-de-sac. The house boasts one of the largest plots on this highly sought-after development. Features include modern contemporary décor throughout, a large lounge/dining room with patio doors to the front lawn, 3 large double bedrooms - one with patio doors to a seated balcony plus an en suite shower room, a brand new Wren fitted kitchen with appliances, a sunny conservatory/family room with patio doors to the secluded sunny garden, a family bathroom with corner bath, further downstairs WC, integral garage, driveway and a good sized south-west facing rear garden with patio, lawn and terraced rockeries. During 2018 the owners undertook many improvements to the home including new carpeting to the hallway, stairs and two bedrooms, new wood flooring to the lower hall and WC, a new gas central heating boiler and a luxury high gloss Wren fitted kitchen with integral appliances. The property is also double glazed throughout.
The house, extending to 1420sq ft (132sq m) enters via a stylish hallway decorated in tones of grey and silver with a new wood floor, radiator cover, alarm control panel, Sky wifi points and a deep storage cupboard with shelving.
A feature glass wall in the hallway looks into the large L-shaped lounge/diningroom which has double patio doors to the front lawn allowing an abundance of natural light to flood in. This versatile room falls naturally into a sitting area and a dining area with ample capacity for a 6-seater dining suite. It has a useful shelved storage alcove, two further windows to the side and Sky TV point. The laminate flooring, spotlights & venetian blinds are all included.
The kitchen has just been refitted with luxury brand new Wren units in high gloss pebble grey complimented by beautiful dark oak worktops and copper edging. It has been thoughtfully designed to include soft closing doors; inbuilt basket storage units; continuing dark oak splashbacks with eye-catching copper trim around the edges; a Zanussi induction hob, electric fan assisted oven and glass splashback; an integral Neff dishwasher; curved edges to the worktops, wall and base units; black ceramic tiled floor; titanium black chrome sockets and switches (some with USB points); and a deep black sink and drainer with black/copper spray & mixer tap. The new Alpha central heating boiler is regularly maintained and has been carefully concealed within the wall units.
Leading off the kitchen is an open plan sunroom/conservatory, currently used as a dining/family room. This exceptionally useful room has built in bench seating in a fun retro campervan fabric and easily seats 4 people and there is further space for a two-seater sofa. The grey/pine farmhouse dining table fits perfectly into this space and so will be included in the sale. An electric wall mounted fire provides extra comfort and allows the room to be used all year round. In the summer months this is a beautifully warm and sunny room in which to enjoy the views onto the rear garden and double patio doors lead onto the patio deck outside. There is also a large storage cupboard and practical laminate flooring. The window roller blinds are included, as is the wall mounted TV bracket. The room was further enhanced this year by the installation of insulation to the roof panels which has been fully plastered and freshly decorated.
Off the lower hallway is an additional WC decorated in contemporary teal with new wood flooring, spotlight, white sink and WC, central heating radiator.
The staircase and upper landing have been recently fitted with new grey/black carpeting and has windows to the rear garden and side of the house with window blinds included. From the upper landing is a loft hatch accessing a very spacious attic with generous storage possibilities, and there is a further large linen cupboard with shelving.
To the front of the property is the large master bedroom, beautifully decorated in shades of silver, soft pink and grey with brand new soft grey carpeting. This room offers more than enough space for a king-sized bed and bedroom furniture and features double patio doors to a private balcony with room for two chairs – a lovely space to enjoy morning coffee or some balcony plants. Full length built-in double wardrobes provide substantial storage space with hanging rails and shelving. The new blackout grey roller blinds, spotlights, curtain poles, new carpeting and fixed mirrors will be included in the sale. Leading off the bedroom is an en suite showerroom, fully tiled in shades of black and white, with WC, large heated towel rail, wall mounted mirror cabinet, basin in vanity unit and LED lights on a dimmer.
Bedroom 2 is a double room quietly located to the rear of the house and is lovely and sunny with views to woodlands beyond. Again, recently decorated, it provides built-in deep double wardrobes with hanging space and shelving. The spotlights, new soft grey carpeting, TV bracket, blackout roller blind and curtain pole are included.
Bedroom 3 is a fantastic large double bedroom featuring an amazing outer space wall mural which would be sure to delight any young member of the family. A low height window is perfect for little ones to look out onto the rear garden and to woodlands beyond – in fact it is often possible to see the neighbouring friendly donkeys in the neighbouring field. Again, at the rear of the house, this is a quiet and sunny bedroom. There is ample room for additional bedroom furniture and the built-in deep double mirror fronted wardrobes offer enough space to conceal extra storage chests if required, along with hanging & shelving space. The shelving, TV bracket, roller blind, curtain pole and carpet are all included.
The family bathroom boasts a large corner bath with shower fitting over, WC & sink in white, and black/white contemporary tiling to walls and floor. The LED lighting on dimmer and waterfall sink tap have been recently fitted and there is an additional mirrored wall cabinet and heated towel rail.
The house also features a full alarm system – please note, the current owners had this deactivated some years ago and cannot verify its working condition, however the instructions, rooms sensors, alarm control panel and outside alarm boxes are all still in place.
A particular feature of this lovely home is the large rear garden – indeed, it is one of the largest gardens in the development. Being south-west facing and fully enclosed, it is a complete sun trap in the summer months. The contemporary grey patio decking offers a lovely secluded outside eating area and looks onto well stocked terraced rockeries with built-in water feature. There is a further lawn area, secluded bench seating area and a clothes-drying area. The playhouse can be included if a purchaser requires. This lovely garden is fully enclosed with mature trees and shrubs, high fencing and is not overlooked by adjoining proprietors.
To the front of the property is a monoblocked driveway and a lawn area with well-stocked shrubbed borders and a cherry blossom tree. Two gates access both sides of the property, a bin store area, outside tap, a new SKY TV dish and pathway to the rear garden.
Lastly an integral garage provides an abundance of storage space for garden equipment or tools and features and up-and-over door, rear door, power, light and additional roof storage space.
Springbank Gardens is a quiet cul-de-sac development, built around 1988 in an enviable location bordering the Allanwater River and Laighhills Park. Originally the site of an old Mill, within a few minutes of the property are lovely riverside walks, woodland paths, brand new childrens’ play facilities and beautiful natural views, all accessed via the historic Faery Bridge. Dunblane Primary School is a safe 5-minute walk from the property, with the High School easily reachable in a 15-minute walk. An unusual feature of Springbank Gardens is the original Old Mill Schoolhouse, which has now been sympathetically converted into a community hall for the exclusive use of residents only – providing a fantastic venue for family parties or charitable events. NB. There is a factoring fee for the maintenance of the Schoolhouse Hall which is approximately £60 per year.
The historic City of Dunblane offers outstanding facilities for couples and families alike, such as a railway station running frequent trains to Glasgow, Stirling, Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen & Edinburgh; Marks & Spencers, Co-op and Tesco supermarkets; a quaint high street selling a variety of locally produced goods and takeaways; several very good cafes and restaurants including Nick Nairns Kailyard at Dunblane Hilton Hotel; a Livingwell Health Club & pool; youth clubs and sports classes at the Dunblane Centre; the famous Cathedral; two libraries; 3 primary schools and a High School consistently rated amongst the top 10 State Secondary Schools in Scotland. Ideally placed for access to the M9, A9, M8 and beyond, commuters can easily reach both Edinburgh and Glasgow cities or the airports within 45-60 minutes.
