Fantastic opportunity to purchase Beattock House, a seven bedroom detached Victorian house located within stunning mature grounds extending to approximately 2 acres and boats wonderful views over the surrounding parkland. The property is thought to date from around 1850 and was built by the Hay family whose business was in Glasgow and who used the house as holiday accommodation. The property is B-Listed and has extensive accommodation (around 5,447 sq. ft.) arranged over lower ground, ground and first floors, which has been substantially upgraded by the current owners and has a number of original historic features including ornate fireplaces, staircase and ceiling cornicing. The property was previously used for holiday rentals and would be suitable for a wide variety of uses including hospitality, residential or institutional.
The main floor of the house comprises; entrance vestibule which leads into the main reception hall. There are five principal reception rooms on the ground floor making it ideal for entertaining. The drawing room has a beautiful, decorative cornice, a parquet floor, a log burning stove with a beautiful, marble surround and links directly into the dining room through double doors. The dining room has a fabulous bay window with ornate, panelled woodwork. Doors from the dining room lead into the morning room, which is ideal for informal dining. There is also a library with an extensive range of fitted bookshelves which connects into the billiard room via a double door. The kitchen is spacious and has an oil-fired Aga, a gas range and a range of fitted units including an island unit. Accessed from the kitchen, is a pantry and a laundry room and a separate door leads into the original butlers pantry. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a WC and a shower room.
The first-floor comprises; seven bedrooms in total, three have en suite bathrooms or shower rooms, one has an en suite WC and the other three are serviced by two separate bathrooms.
The lower ground floor was formally used as staff accommodation and the public bar when the property was run as a hotel. This could now easily convert into a separate flat for additional family or staff. The lower ground floor also houses an extensive wine cellar with original stone wine bin. Also on this level, but accessed from the outside, is a boiler room, which has two separate oil-fired boilers installed in the autumn of 2013.
The property has mains electric and water, private drainage and oil-fired central heating.
Externally, Beattock House is approached by a tree-lined drive, which is part-shared with the Osprey, a bungalow to the west and behind Beattock House. This driveway leads to gravelled parking and turning area to the front of the house.
