Channelkirk House, formerly a Church of Scotland manse, is a really attractive Victorian family house set in mature, private grounds. It is constructed of solid natural stone walls which are rough cast externally, under pitched slate roofs. The manse was thirty years old when the new kirk was built in 1817. However, it burnt down in 1868 and had to be largely re-built. Although in need of some refurbishment, Channelkirk House presents many possibilities and has huge scope. It is light and bright and the rooms provide adaptable family accommodation with well proportion reception rooms and good size bedrooms. It is full of character with high ceilings and a welcoming hallway. Of particular note is the large play room which adds another dimension to the house.
Channelkirk House is approached along a gravelled drive with a large parking area at the front door. Set apart from the house is a useful range of outbuildings constructed of solid natural stone under a slate roof. It provides garaging for one car and a store for garden equipment.
Surrounding the house is a private garden, mainly down to lawn and bordered with mature trees which add to the sense of seclusion. At the back of the house, across the back drive, is the former vegetable garden and orchard. Set apart from the house is an “En Tout Cas” tennis court which is in need of resurfacing. A right of access if retained over the land linking Channelkirk House to the tennis court.
