Property Description

Full description


Fortunate to enjoy country views all round and a short distance from the conservation village of Eaglesham and the dormitory village of Auldhouse, Lairfad House is a substantial five bedroom attached property, originally dating from (circa) 1850. It extends to approximately 4500 square feet of floor space and is set in shared grounds extending to approximately three and a half acres. Internally, the property has been comprehensively redesigned and reworked in recent years and now offers versatile, family accommodation, with four public rooms and five bedrooms, formed over two substantial levels.

This property is as unique as it is beautiful. The traditional building has been well maintained both internally and externally, to create fantastic and flexible accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify. The bespoke interior offers sophisticated living space, with exquisite, restored period detailing including cornicing, fireplaces and skirtings, which is inherent with a home of this age and character. The property is surrounded by gardens mainly laid to lawn and screened by a wide variety of mature trees and hedging. The gardens provide seasonal colour and benefit from a feature patio area. There is a chipped driveway providing off-road parking for several vehicles. A short drive to Eaglesham and Newton Mearns offers outstanding retail, business and leisure facilities. The property enjoys views over the adjacent rolling countryside and would be a haven for those seeking a lifestyle change.

This is the main house of Lairfad Farm. The ground floor accommodation offers an entrance porch, lovely traditional style hallway leading to a traditional large wood panelled cloakroom with WC. Original parquet flooring and traditional wooden floors extend throughout the ground floor. The ground floor continues with a beautiful dining room with focal point fireplace with log burning stove, magnificent 31 foot by 26 foot drawing room with feature split level area, family sitting room with log burning stove, dining kitchen with access through to a large laundry room and boiler drying room. The large rear hallway, area is ideal for storage and ancillary use and it also gives access to bedroom five/study.

The upper accommodation displays a magnificent stain glass decorative window and doorway giving access to a contemporary bathroom suite with roll top bath, master bedroom suite with large walk-in dressing room which leads to a beautifully refitted contemporary en-suite bathroom with double shower enclosure, roll top bath and tiling. There are three further double bedrooms that complete the upper floor.
