Description

Bogangreen House is a fine 18th century farmhouse which retains many beautiful original features and has been upgraded for modern day family living. The perfectly symmetrical house is striking from all aspects but particularly from the front thanks to unique features such as a batwing fanlight above the door and central wall head pediment at the roof line. The sash and case windows throughout the house have in recent years been replaced and window shutters have been restored. Other interior features found throughout the house include decorative cornicing and plaster work, and wood panelling.

The house is approached off a quiet lane on the outskirts of Coldingham where a low stone wall flanks the property, and set between two stone gate pillars is a wrought iron gate to the driveway of Bogangreen House. The gravel driveway sweeps round the front of the house to the back door and car port.

The accommodation is very well presented with reception rooms spread over the ground and first floors. The sitting room has painted wood panelling to dado height, recessed display shelving, windows on two aspects and set beneath the decorative timber mantelpiece is a multi fuel stove. The flooring in the sitting room, along with much of the house, is American green oak.

The kitchen/ dining room is very much the hub of the house with plenty of room for a dining table and a sitting area with a multi fuel stove to one corner. There is a small prep area with solid granite worktop by the four oven Aga which is set beneath a large decorative mantel with tiling below.

The back kitchen has tiled flooring, a large stainless steel sink unit and worktop space. A door from here leads out to the rear car porch which in the summer is an excellent outdoor dining area. Beyond the back kitchen is a utility room which has base units with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.

The ground floor is completed by a shower room which has a wash hand basin and a WC. Steps from the rear corridor lead down into the cellar which offers excellent storage.

The staircase rises to the first floor from the central hallway, lit by an impressive arched window on the north east elevation which lets a huge amount of natural light into the house.

The first floor drawing room is magnificent and has breathtaking views over the gardens and grounds and over towards Coldingham Bay. Either side of the semi circular wall are two large built in cupboards and set beneath the decorative mantelpiece is another multi fuel stove. The decorative cornicing with its unique colouring is thought to be as it was when the house was built.

The master bedroom sits adjacent to the drawing room and enjoys similar, yet slightly different views. Set between it and the drawing room is a dressing room which could also be a children's bedroom or a study.

The bathroom has been fitted with quality bathroom fixtures which include a double bath with jacuzzi jets, a shower unit with multiple heads, a WC and a solid marble wash hand basin. Set beneath the window is a window seat and the room has a working open fireplace.

There are a further four generous bedroom on the second floor. Two of these look south-east to the North Sea while the rear bedrooms have excellent views across the neighbouring farmland. The second floor bedrooms are serviced by a shower room and benefit from excellent views in all directions.

Outside
Immediately in front of the house is a generous area of lawn and beyond is a wild paddock which extends to approximately 2.6 acres. Interspersed throughout the grounds of Bogangreen House are magnificent and mature evergreen and deciduous trees and shrubs which include maples, ashes and hollies. The grounds are fully enclosed by stone walls and fencing and are bounded by two burns which run down the north and south boundaries. To the rear of the house are a further area of lawn, a parking area and a timber built car port. There are plenty of areas of woodland throughout the grounds which provide a year round supply of wood for the house.
