Blairlogie is a small, late medieval village nestled under the cliff of Dumyat at the foot of the Ochil Hills. The buildings date from at least the 16th century and are striking in their historic character, quality of detail and architecture. Struan is one of the most notable buildings in the village built around 1876, set back from the road and characterised by the ornate stone work and Cathedral style upper windows.
The grounds are divided into separate sections to accommodate various functions and times of day to capture the sun. The manicured front garden resembles a period garden with generous lawn areas separated by a defined stone chipped pathway complemented by mature bushes, shrubbery and hedges. To the side of this a further tall hedge screens a long driveway with ample parking leading to a detached garage. Beyond this a superb child’s secret garden features a barked area with combined timber climbing frame, swing and chute all with the added advantage of a patio area great for observing and entertaining. The garden is completed to the rear with a raised monobloc area, stone chipped section, lawn and sheds.
The current vendors have sympathetically maintained and upgraded the property over a number of years resulting in this fine example of a traditional home which only after close inspection can be truly appreciated. The building is of sandstone construction, presented under a pitched slate roof with striking and beautiful features.
The accommodation is deceptively spacious, very adaptable and successfully blends high quality modern specifications with period charm. The ground floor consists of an entrance hallway, bright commodious bay window lounge with working fireplace as the main focal point and complemented by detailed cornicing. The dining room is an attractive formal room with a display alcove and access to the utility room and kitchen. Superb Ashley Ann fitted kitchen with a selection of integrated appliances, high quality tall and low level units with space saving pull out shelves, soft closing drawers all enhanced with a central island and a granite work surfaces. Not finished there, the classic Range Master stove completes one of the most important rooms of any home. French doors provide access to the garden to the side .Off the kitchen is a useful utility room with space and fitting for appliances, and downstairs gardener’s toilet.
Upstairs the L-shaped landing leads to all bedrooms and family bathroom, with a number of deceptively spacious storage cupboards, very useful for any family. The master bedroom is a bright and airy room with double aspects over the garden, to the farm land beyond. There is a recessed wash hand basin, en-suite wc and further storage within the eaves and a shallow press cupboard. The second bedroom is also situated to the front of the property and benefits from similar aspects. This room has an en-suite shower room, not common in period homes, but very appealing and useful in its benefits. The third bedroom is situated to the rear and is a good-sized room with views to the Hills at the rear and features exposed floorboards. The nursery has space for a child’s cot or single bed but could easily be utilised as a home office or library. The up-graded family bathroom completes the upstairs accommodation and really does not disappoint. The four piece suite comprises instantly impressive cast iron roll top bath with separate shower cubicle with wet wall, wc and wash hand basin. Complementing tiling to half height, side facing velux window and wall paper on all walls.
