Full descriptionHenderson Roche are delighted to be marketing Inverteith in Doune. A substantial 4 bedroom detached sandstone villa built around 1801. With private driveway and walled garden grounds this beautiful property will make an ideal family home.
The property is set back from Stirling Road via a walled garden and private driveway upon entry to the village of Doune. It is surrounded by houses of varying nature and construction spaced well enough apart to afford privacy. Local amenities are reasonably accessed within a short walk and further range of services are available in the nearby city of Stirling.
Entry to the property is via a private driveway with space for several vehicles leading to a stone built garage. The house boasts 4 generous bedrooms and 3 reception rooms. The kitchen has been recently extended to afford ample cooking, dining and entertaining space and the walled garden has many areas of mature shrubs, plants and trees with a large lawned area and a vegetable patch.
Upon entry to the vestibule via the original timber door you are immediately in to a welcoming hallway on the ground floor. A delightful space with stripped and varnished original floorboards and there is attractive wallpaper to dado height. The house retains many original features throughout such as attractive cornicing, ceiling roses and high ceilings, solid oak doors and high skirting boards, not to mention fireplaces and sash and case windows.
There are 5 main rooms on the ground floor; the drawing room, family room, dining room, kitchen and the sun lounge. There is also a utility room off the kitchen and a convenient WC.
Immediately to your left off the hallway is the family room, a spacious room currently utilised as an office. There is an open fireplace with attractive surround and a large window looks to the front over the garden and driveway. The stripped floorboards continue through from the hallway creating a lovely flow and there is an open fire with attractive surround.
Across the hallway to the right is the formal drawing room, a light space with bay window to the front with fitted seating within. There is a further window to the side of the house and an open fireplace with attractive surround/
The recently fitted and modern kitchen sits to the rear of the property. A lovely light, bright space with feature AGA with hot plates. 2 Large Velux-style windows allow the room to fill with natural daylight. In addition to the range of base and wall units and ample workspace there is also ample space for a family dining table. From this space you are led through to a convenient utility room - complete with further base and wall units and sink and drawer, there is also space and plumbing for laundry appliances. The kitchen also includes a back door which leads to a small courtyard and further access to the beautiful garden beyond.
The dining room sits to the rear of the house with a window overlooking the garden and ample space for dining furniture. This room then flows through to the sun lounge.
The sun lounge is glazed on 3 sides and is a charming space to relax in the evening. A door leads again to the courtyard to the rear.
A quirky WC completes the ground floor and includes a traditional suite of high-cistern WC and an attractive pedestal sink.
From the ground floor hallway the staircase rises to the first floor, giving access to 4 generous bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate shower room. The stripped wooden flooring continues on this floor and allows each of the rooms to maintain an airy and spacious feel.
The Master bedroom sits to the side with a feature bay window overlooking the garden. This room has very generous proportions and can accommodate a large bed in addition to bedroom furniture. A chandelier-effect light fitting provides further lighting. Bedroom 2 is dual aspect with attractive fitted curtains and pelmet. Original cornicing remains and a little concealed door leads through to the shower room.
The shower room which sits between bedrooms 2 and 3, is a fantastic space with a large walk-in shower cubicle with drying area. Neutral tiling is present on the walls to full height and a white suite comprising WC and pedestal sink completes the room. Downlights provide lighting in addition to a charming window looking to the front. An original radiator provides warmth.
Bedroom 3 is again a generous size with a window to the front and original coring.
Bedroom 4 sits to the rear of the property and although the smallest of the four bedrooms, is by no means a small room. Generously proportioned and with a window to the side, this room can easily fit a double bed and further furniture.
The family bathroom is a beautiful room and includes a freestanding bathtub with traditional style taps and hand held shower in cradle. The flooring is tiled and attractive wooden panelling lines the wall to half-height around the room. 2 frosted windows overlook the rear of the property. A large free-standing sink and traditional style WC are also present and an attractive tiled splashback panel behind the bath is a lovely feature.
Completing this floor is access to the fully floored attic space accessed via a Ramsey ladder. This space offers fantastic development potential, subject to the necessary planning consent.
Externally Invertieth has beautiful garden grounds. There is a wall to the front with access to the driveway which runs up the side of the house to a gated access into the detached brick-built garage with folding doors. To the other side of the garden is a lovely lawned area surrounded by well-established trees, shrubs and plants. A substantial vegetable patch has the potential to maintain rhubarb, potatoes, leeks and lettuces.
Further to the rear is a patio area for outdoor dining furniture. Next to the courtyard and attached to the rear of the kitchen is a log-store and small WC beyond the boiler room.
Inverkieth is a truly beautiful family home perfectly situated in the Village of Doune. Easily commutable to Stirling and beyond, this is a warm, welcoming home to return to after a hard day at the office.
Doune itself is a well-serviced Village with a host of amenities including restaurants, bars, cafés and shops. There is a lovely Primary School within the Village.
Doune is renowned for its Medieval Castle, built in the 14th Century.
Further amenities can be sought in the Cathedral town of Dunblane, including an M&S Simply Food, a Tesco Metro and a sports club with all-weather tennis courts and 2 golf clubs.
We anticipate a high level of interest in Invertieth and as such recommend early viewing to fully appreciate all this beautiful property has to offer.
