Faraway House is a home of exceptional quality. Extending to around 260 square metres (2,800 square feet) and fastidiously maintained, the property has been recently upgraded and decorated throughout both internally and externally. It offers free flowing accommodation starting from the entrance porch leading into a spacious reception hall, formal lounge, dining room open plan to sitting room and recently installed designer kitchen with island breakfasting area. Bi-fold doors open up from the kitchen into a superb kitchen extension and multi purpose utility space with adjacent cloakroom. There are glazed multi fold doors leading onto a covered decked area. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a guest bedroom with en-suite. Patio doors from the lounge and dining room open onto south and west facing decking.

The upstairs hall is large enough to accommodate a small seating or study area. There is a large master bedroom with en-suite and extensive fitted wardrobes, 2 further bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes one of which also has an en-suite and there is a main bathroom.

Central heating is via an LP gas boiler and the house is fully double glazed. In addition there are stylish contemporary wood burning stoves in both the lounge and sitting room. There are photo voltaic solar roof panels which reduce electricity costs and also provide an income through the government Feed-In Tariff scheme.

In total the grounds extend to around 9 acres. The area around the house is mainly lawn with borders, shrubs, fish pond and a tarmacadam parking and turning area. There is a 2 car garage with garden machinery store and a separate purpose built stable block with 2 loose boxes, tack room and log store. The remaining grounds are planted as young woodland with over 3000 trees providing delightful walks and a haven for wildlife. There are also fishing rights on the adjacent River Forth.

In addition, and sheltered away from the house, is a modern steel framed workshop unit fitted out with a spacious office, kitchen, shower room and large dry storage area with roller door. This unit is currently utilised by the current owners in connection with their business, a low input lifestyle business. The owners will relocate the business upon sale of the property. However, should a prospective purchaser of the property wish to consider purchase of the business then figures relative to turnover, profitability and value can be provided.

The property enjoys a truly beautiful and idyllic location to the west side of Flanders Moss and adjacent to the River Forth with views across to the Trossachs. Access is from the A811 at Ladylands Farm. This single track public road continues to a bridge after which the tarmacadam road is private with the owners of Faraway responsible for a share of costs towards upkeep.

The nearest village is Kippen (3 miles), renowned as warm and friendly and with good facilities including shops, church, post office, health centre, tennis courts and hotels. Primary schooling is available within the village while secondary schooling is at Balfron High, which benefits from state of the art facilities. Private schools in the area include Beaconhurst, Dollar Academy and Morrison's Academy. Stirling (12 miles) is the major city of central Scotland and provides a full range of shops and services including a choice of supermarkets, a large shopping centre, a cinema and swimming pool. Bridge of Allan is home to Stirling University which has a sports centre and the MacRobert Art Centre with a theatre and cinema. Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth are all within commuting distance.
