Property Description

Full description

Elmbank is a most impressive individually designed detached family home set in private landscaped grounds of just under an acre, in the pretty hamlet of Kirkton.

With spacious and thoughtfully laid out living accommodation throughout and geo-thermal heating providing heat and hot water, this modern characterful home offers a wonderful rural lifestyle with twenty-first century design and comfort.

The property is set in a beautiful rural position with fine open views, a sweeping private drive and generous landscaped gardens and grounds.

Elmbank also benefits from excellent transport links north to Edinburgh and south to Newcastle and Carlisle via the A7 and A68, with mainline railway and airports within easy striking distance.

The size and layout of the plot would easily lend itself to extending the house to create an annexe or to build a detached annexe/holiday let within the grounds, or even to situated several holiday lodges, cabins or yurts, to create an income.

A pre-application enquiry was made by the sellers in August 2015, to establish the feasibility of creating an additional dwelling house within the gardens to Elmbank. Subject to the details of any proposals, the local authority has suggested that this would comply with both current and emerging policies. A copy of the Council's response is available from the selling agent.

The accommodation comprises:

Ground Floor: Entrance hallway, cloakroom, kitchen-breakfast room, utility room, drawing room, sitting room, dining room.

First floor: Galleried landing, master bedroom with en-suite, guest bedroom with en-suite, three further double bedrooms, family bathroom.
