Description

Greenacre sits in almost an acre of gardens and has a wonderful setting above Loch Tay with outstanding views over the loch to the hills on the far side. It is a superb family house built in approximately 1967, however it has been fully renovated and extended to include a new second floor master bedroom suite with balcony providing breathtaking views. Since purchasing it in 2010, the current owners have substantially invested in key aspects such as the new Fischer heating system, the roof, the chalet and the water supply to name a few. The house sits in a private yet accessible setting off the A827 road from Killin to Kenmore.

The kitchen has superb south facing views over the garden and towards Loch Tay. It has solid wooden flooring, a range of fitted base and wall units and range of new Lamona appliances including a microwave, electric oven and grill, dishwasher, four electric hobs with an extractor fan over and a separate fridge freezer. There is also a traditional Raeburn set into an alcove. There is a utility / pantry cupboard which is plumbed for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A glass door from the kitchen leads out to the south facing garden and decked terrace. The kitchen sits adjacent to the dining room, which again has superb south facing views. At the end of the hall is a sitting room which has plenty of traditional character with exposed timber ceiling beams, an open fireplace with brick surround and tiled hearth and double doors leading out onto the decked terrace. The ground floor is completed by a cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin as well as a large under stair cupboard.

A staircase leads up to the first floor galleried landing. Here there are windows to the north providing views of the hills beyond. Set off the landing are three south facing double bedrooms, one of which has a range of fitted storage cupboards with an integrated sink and fireplace. There is a further bedroom which has windows to the south and west as well as an open fireplace. This is currently used as a reading room but could easily be another bedroom. At the end of the landing is the family bathroom with WC, wash hand basin, bath and separate shower cubicle. Off the landing there is also a large linen cupboard.

From the first floor landing a staircase curves up to the second floor master bedroom suite. This was added by the owners in 2011 and features a superb balcony offering spectacular views over the gardens and Loch Tay beyond. There is an en suite bathroom with WC, twin wash hand basins, bidet, bath and separate shower cubicle. There is also a good sized dressing room with Velux window which could also be a single bedroom or nursery if required.

Chalet

Adjacent to the main house is a chalet which has previously been let for short term holidays. To the front there is a timber verandah from which there are excellent views to the north towards the hills. The accommodation includes a kitchen / sitting room with electric appliances and a stainless steel double sink. Adjacent to this there is a double bedroom with an en suite shower room.

Studio

Immediately to the south of the chalet is a studio which was used by previous owners as a recording studio. This has two generous shelved storage rooms, a recording room and a sitting room overlooking the garden.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

The gardens extend to approximately 0.94 acres and are beautifully presented and south facing, making the most of the stunning views towards Loch Tay. Outbuildings include a greenhouse, a workshop and a potting shed. There is also a garage situated off the parking area. The gardens are terraced in different sections.
