Rosie Fraser Real Estate are delighted to bring to the market this exceptional four-bedroom steading with endless bounds of charm.
The property is spread over two levels with downstairs comprising of open plan dining area with working log burning stove, spacious country style kitchen complete with country style sink, range cooker and built-in dishwasher. The kitchen has space for a dining table. A beautiful sash window complete with window seat and exposed ceiling beam adds character to this beautiful room. Leading from the kitchen is a useful utility room with country sink and additional cupboard space. Additionally downstairs are two of four of the double bedrooms, a shower room and a spacious sunroom with large windows overlooking the fairylike garden and a log burning stove.
Upstairs is the lounge with log burning stove and exposed ceiling beams then leading to the library with views over the garden. Two further spacious double bedrooms and family bathroom with shower over bath.
External to the rear of the property is an extensive and fairylike garden. The garden is extremely productive and vibrant whilst not requiring much detailed attention. This is partly due to the high nitrogenous water that runs down the hill as well as the well-chosen plants that flower at different times of the year. In warmer months there is no shortage of colour in the garden due to different flowering time of various plants. The garden is complete with its own fresh running stream from the hills, summer house which would remain, patio area and two garden sheds which would remain.
The property comes with private parking spaces to the rear and ample unallocated parking to the front of the property.
The property dates to 1802. Coming out from the main drive, Balkello woodland is 500m to the right and Auchterhouse hill is 500m to the left. Surrounded by Christmas trees there’s plenty of wildlife within the steading grounds, including deer, red squirrels, badgers, owls, and foxes.
The steading is approximately 1 mile from Auchterhouse primary school. Auchterhouse village is a close-knit community with its own Facebook resident’s page. There are regular events at the church hall on Friday evenings as well as other special events throughout the year; including the Auchterhouse hill run from the village.
Another peaceful and interesting walk less than 2 miles from the house is Dronley Wood. Rejuvenated by local efforts since storm Arwen in November 2021, dronley wood continues to see many of its resident birds including Blue Jays, Woodpeckers, Herons and other local species.
The property has gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
Early viewings are advised to appreciate this truly exceptional property.
