Gwynbrook is an attractive house on the edge of the village of Edzell. It is situated on Dunlappie Road, within easy walking distance of the High Street and all the amenities of Edzell, including the two golf courses and the driving range. The house dates from the 1920s, and the current owners are only the third family to have lived in the house. The house was extended in 1984 and again in 1998. It is an extremely adaptable house. Prior to being acquired by the sellers in 2009 it comprised the main house and an interlinking annexe, which had its own entrance. This has all now been incorporated into one good sized family house. The main part of the house still retains many of its original features including cornicings and panelled doors, and the house has a harled finish with a slate roof. It is fully double glazed and there are views to the north to the hills.
Since 2011 the kitchen has been refurbished and the master bedroom, with an enlarged en suite bathroom, has been created within what was part of the former annexe. A new boiler has also been fitted and the house has been extensively redecorated and re-carpeted, including extending the Amtico flooring in the hallway. As such this is a fine family home. At ground floor level there are two good sized reception rooms and the modern kitchen links through into a family room. As well as the master bedroom there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom at this level, together with a conservatory. Upstairs there is another en suite bedroom. It is a house that lends itself well to modern family living and to entertaining, with a secluded and enclosed garden at the rear.
At the front of the house are block paved parking and turning areas with two entrances off Dunlappie Road, arranged around a central and gravelled shrub border. A partially glazed front door opens to a vestibule with an inner glazed door to the hallway. This, along with the vestibule has Amtico flooring together with stairs to the first floor and cornicing. At the far end of the hallway is a side porch with a further entrance door. The sitting room has a cornice, picture rail, fireplace with composite mantel and housing a Living Flame gas fire. The dining room also has a cornice and picture rail, together with a fireplace with wooden mantel and tiled inserts. The modern kitchen has fitted Moben wooden wall and base units with tiled splashbacks and housing a Rangemaster Toledo cooker with two ovens, grill, five gas burners and hot plate, integral Tecnik dishwasher, sink, fitted fridge and freezer. The kitchen has a tiled floor and an arch through to the family room. This has a picture window with views to the hills, sliding doors to the garden, cornice, two wall lights and ample space for both informal dining off the kitchen and as a living room. Off this is a utility room with a further entrance door, built in and fitted cupboards (one used as a linen cupboard and housing a wall mounted Worcester boiler) together with fitted wall and base units with sink, Panasonic washing machine and Creda dryer.
Also off the hallway is the tiled bathroom with bath with shower, pedestal washbasin and WC. Bedroom 1 has a cornice and views to the hills. Bedroom 2 has a cornice and a bay window. Double doors open to the master bedroom which has a cornice, downlighters, fitted hanging and shelved wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with a free standing bath, drencher shower cubicle, two circular washbasins with vanity unit and a WC. Glazed doors open onto a conservatory with timber lined walls and doors opening onto paving in the garden which links across to the family room.
Wooden and carpeted steps lead up to the first floor with a louvered door to a storage cupboard. Bedroom 4 also has uninterupted views to the hills, together with a built in hanging and shelved cupboard and an en suite shower room with shower cubicle, pedestal washbasin, WC and tiled floor.
