Full description

The name 'Spylaw House' gives a clue to the outstanding open views of both coast and country which this property enjoys. The property was converted during 1994 and has since been refurbished and upgraded to provide spacious accommodation in a rural position, yet only around 1/2 mile from the station and about 4 miles to the A1 road. The accommodation is split level retaining many original features including arched window openings and beamed ceilings complemented by modern kitchen fittings with electric aga. The ground floor includes large sitting room with cast iron stove and doors within the arches opening out to the courtyard, very large conservatory enjoying the views to the north and east, and farmhouse style kitchen with stone floor and granite worktops. The lower ground floor includes two double bedrooms (one with en suite and one with separate shower room), and the master suite is on the first floor with dressing room and five piece bathroom. There is also a fourth double bedroom and study at this level. The annexe is attached to the main house and is linked through the utility room, but has its own main entrance. On the ground floor there is a sitting room, conservatory and kitchen. There are two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. Externally the gardens comprise a delightful mixture of courtyard planting with a wide range of flowering shrubs, plus lawned garden, vegetable area and outhouse. The annexe also has a small enclosed patio garden. The detached double garage has an inspection pit and electrically operated doors. Easy gravelled parking and turning area. This is an unusual and spacious property and only by an internal inspection can its full value be appreciated.

The main entrance to the house is from the rear where the parking and garage is situated. There is direct access to the kitchen or to the conservatory.
