About the property
Situated within the prime residential area of the city, this imposing mansion house is surely one of the finest and largest homes to grace the King’s Park market in years. The property sits amidst grounds which extend to approximately one acre and faces the well maintained gardens of the crescent. Built circa 1865 with dressed blonde sandstone under a slate and pitched roof, this B-listed property offers accommodation over four levels and has been extensively, yet sympathetically, upgraded in recent years and retains some amazing features including ornate cornicing, working shutters and stained glass windows.
The ground floor level is completely self-contained and self-serving, and can be accessed from the front and internally from the raised ground floor. The accommodation extends to a sitting room, dining kitchen, two bedrooms, dressing room, en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower cubicle and W.C. To the side of this is a games room which was a former stable and an office/ bedroom 7.
The raised ground floor level extends to an entrance vestibule, hallway, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, kitchen, utility room, family room and shower room.
The first floor landing leads to an instantly impressive master bedroom with dual aspects and a fabulous en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower area. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom on this level. There is access from this level to a stairwell leading to a study/bedroom 8, and a stunning Belvedere which offers one of the most spectacular 360 degree views of King’s Park, Stirling and beyond that is available.
Externally, the garden grounds are something to admire. The front garden has a very wide horse shoe driveway which has planning permission for electric gates and fencing. To the side of this is a triple garage and gate that opens to reveal a secret garden on a grand scale. There are a number of raised vegetable beds, numerous fruit trees and bushes. There are three lawn areas divided by tall bushes and complemented by colourful and well stocked borders and perimeters, mature trees and a substantial monobloc patio with sheltered BBQ area and outhouse.
