Sitting on the outskirts of Eaglesham, an attached stone built farmhouse sitting in just over an acre of ground with exceptional uninterrupted views over rolling, surrounding hills. Built in the late 18th century and forming part of a larger farm development, this stone built farmhouse offers exceptional, well laid out accommodation over two levels with modern extension to the rear and side. Access to the grounds are via a shared tarmacadam driveway and into a large, private stone chipped parking bay for several cars.
Sitting well back from the road this family home offers quiet rural living just a stone’s throw from Eaglesham; a small conservation village on the south side of Glasgow with ease of access to Glasgow city centre, Ayrshire and Lanarkshire.
The front elevation is original blond sandstone beneath a pitched slate roof, as you will see from the attached photographs. The house has been tastefully decorated throughout offering a blend of beautiful modern touches yet still retaining many of its alluring, original features.
There is a small porch way entering further into a welcoming reception hallway with large under stair cupboard. There is a beautiful well proportioned lounge finished with an exposed stone wall, wooden panelling and feature stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. Across the hallway is the main social hub of the house, a beautiful country style kitchen finished with stone tiled floors, wooden cabinets and black granite worktops.
There is a large Rangemaster cooker with induction hob and a large American style double door fridge/freezer. Integrated appliances include Miele microwave, Miele coffee machine and Lamona dishwasher, as well as having plenty of free standing kitchen units.
The living area to the rear of the kitchen has been upgraded by its current owners to include fully insulated walls with a new pitched tiled roof, to offer extra comfort and offering use all throughout the year. The extension also houses a spacious study/gym and good sized laundry room, fitted with floor and wall mounted units and sink, with space for a separate washing machine and dryer. There is also a WC and storage cupboard to the rear.
Upstairs there are three decent sized bedrooms all leading off a generously proportioned top floor landing. The area is flooded with light via an original stain glass window above the bathroom.
The master bedroom is a massive double room with two recessed press’, views over the front and rear gardens as well as having a beautiful feature fireplace.
The second and third bedrooms are both across the hallway, and are both decent sized doubles with the second bedroom benefiting from built in wardrobes. The bathroom on the half landing has been fitted with traditional roll topped bath, WC, wash hand basin and separate shower cubicle with stainless steel fittings and finished with tiled floors, wooden panelling to shoulder height and traditional features including original stained glass window. The house has been decorated throughout in a subtle palate, to suit many tastes and has a mixture of hardwood flooring, carpeting and tiled flooring.
As was previously mentioned the house has been sympathetically modernised and offers a nice blend of traditional features such as cornicing, stained glass windows yet still having many modern touches which most family homes enjoy including UPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating. Both the oil tank and septic tank are located in the neighbours’ garden with right of access for maintenance and upkeep.
This exceptionally large plot has been predominately turfed and offers plenty of privacy with tree and hedge lining around the plot. Even though the house is partially attached you would barely notice your neighbours next door with plenty of privacy via hedging and fencing. The garden has also been gated at the side to offer peace of mind for kids and pets.
The sale of the property will include all floor coverings, light fittings and blinds. Please note that kitchen appliances included in the sale are the Rangemaster cooker and hob, Rangemaster fridge/freezer, integrated Miele microwave and coffee machine, and Lamona dishwasher.
