Enjoying a tranquil setting in Bellsquarry, this traditional, extended detached cottage has been sympathetically reconfigured and modernised to create an exquisite blend of period charm and contemporary living.


Its abundance of carefully-preserved original features, which include rustic exposed stone walls, are enhanced by a simple and cohesive interior design concept of rich oak and elegant neutral décor. In addition to a wealth of flexible accommodation over two levels, this idyllic family home is enveloped by beautiful private gardens, and boasts a single garage and offstreet parking for a further three vehicles.

Positioned behind a walled front garden, the cottage instantly endears with its white painted façade and traditional windows. Welcoming you inside is a spacious entrance hall, where an exposed stone wall and solid oak flooring convey a warm and homely feel. A glazed door on the right allows a first glimpse into the vast yet cosy living room, which features another exposed stone wall. Perfect for winding down in the evening, at the heart of the space is a rustic fireplace with a cast-iron multi-fuel stove. The living room leads into a neat inner hall, which accommodates a spacious three piece bathroom and a useful utility room, and continues into the contemporary open-plan kitchen and dining area.

Designed as a hardworking family hub and a stylish entertaining space, the room enjoys a
wonderful triple aspect and superb natural light from dawn until dusk.

The classic oak Shaker kitchen incorporates a wealth of hidden storage and workspace, plus an integrated fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. At the focal point of the kitchen is a stunning Rangemaster gas cooker, which comprises five gas burners, two conventional ovens, a separate grill and a ceramic warming plate. A convivial breakfast peninsula provides bar seating for four, while the spacious dining area adjacent easily accommodates an eight-seat dining table. From here double doors open into the spectacular triple-aspect conservatory, which offers another all-season reception room with beautiful garden views.

Upstairs, the luxurious master bedroom is bathed in light from a south-facing Juliet balcony overlooking the rear garden, and boasts a part-fitted, dual-door dressing room. There are two further double bedrooms and a versatile single bedroom/study, all of which benefit from generous fitted wardrobes and storage. Completing the first floor is a sunny three piece shower room, which features a glazed shower compartment, substantial vanity storage and a useful linen cupboard.


The cottage is enveloped by beautiful landscaped gardens, including a walled front garden populated with colourful planters and window boxes, and an exceptionally private and secluded, south-facing rear garden. Screened and sheltered by established trees, the sprawling rear lawn is dotted with mature fruit trees and a sandstone patio, and also features a garden shed. The lush green fields and Bellsquarry Wood on the southern
boundary of the garden are managed by The Woodland Trust, and can be accessed via a pedestrian footpath adjacent to the cottage. The property benefits from double glazed windows and gas central heating throughout, ensuring a warm, energy-efficient climate all year round.

Viewing: Saturday 2-4pm and by appointment with Gilson Gray
