About the property
This outstanding example of a period school house conversion is situated within a scenic and beautiful location on the outskirts of Buchlyvie. The property has instant charm and warmth that would suit family buyers or someone looking for a country retreat. The accommodation is versatile and comprises entrance vestibule, lounge with log burning stove, open plan drawing room, a fabulous breakfasting kitchen that leads to the spacious conservatory to the rear and large utility room with w/c off. There are three double bedrooms upstairs, two fitted bathrooms with bedroom four located off the drawing room and features an en-suite shower room. The property is completed with neutral décor, double-glazed windows and LPG gas central heating.
Externally the grounds are of particular note. The instantly memorable feature is the large pond to the rear which was originally constructed as an outdoor swimming pool with the current vendors opting to make it a pond it features a small water fall and decking situated to the rear, ideal for those summer months. Beyond the conservatory is a patio area with stairs leading to a gentle sloping lawn with apple trees and hedging to the side. Reached by a cobble stone driveway, the far end of the garden hosts the detached double garage and a fantastic Bothy. The Bothy features a living area with log burning stove and a mezzanine area above and could be possible used as a guest house or a small rental opportunity. Past the Bothy lies a small bridge that extends to a small woodland, perfect for children to explore or even a source of wood for the log burners.
