Description

Lochview is a superb family house, which was built to an excellent standard in 2012. The house is timber framed and has a mixture of natural stone clad and white washed walls, all under a slate roof. The elevated setting gives panoramic views towards Loch Leven, north and west across the rolling farmland. The house sits in a fantastic site in the north west corner of Flockhouse Mains which comprises four properties.

The formal front door is on the east side of the house and opens into a vestibule with coat cupboard and further door into the main reception hallway. The hallway has oak flooring and a seating area in front of the double doors out to the garden. Opposite this is a cosy library which is open to the hallway.

The kitchen/ family room is a superb space with French doors to an outside terrace on one side and to the front garden on the other side. The kitchen is fitted by Calum Walker with top quality fixtures, fittings and appliances which include:
• Oak flooring.
• Pantry with Kelpie design sliding glass doors.
• Base and wall mounted units in gloss white.
• Miele appliances: electric induction hob, extractor fan, dishwasher, fridge freezer, oven, steam oven, warming drawer and wine fridge.
• Villeroy & Boch double sink with mixer tap and Quooker boiling water tap.
• Corian work tops with integrated power sockets.
• Oak breakfast bar.
• Sonos music system - linked to master bedroom, master bathroom, dining room and entrance hallway.
• Seating area with recessed display shelving, double sided Firebelly stove with oak mantelpiece above.

The dining room shares the family room stove and is accessed through double partial glazed doors from the hallway. This overlooks the rear garden with windows on two aspects. Also off the main hallway is a cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin and a guest bedroom with en suite shower room.

The utility room is fitted with a range of base and wall mounted units with a stainless steel sink and LG washing machine and dryer. Here there is a back door to the garden and a door giving access to a back set of stairs up to the office / bedroom 5 which is serviced by a separate WC and wash hand basin. Below this is a games room / gym, which was previously the garage of Lochview. This could potentially be converted back to garage space if required.

An oak and glass panelled staircase highlighted by recessed lighting rises up to the first floor, where there is a large landing with plenty of adaptable space (currently a seating area). There is a fitted desk in front of the window to the north.

The master suite encompasses a bedroom with a balcony overlooking the garden, a large bathroom with slipper bath and separate shower, and a large dressing room with built in wardrobes with sliding mirrored doors. There are two further double bedrooms on this level which both have en suite bath / shower rooms.

Outside
The grounds which surround Lochview are extensive and are enclosed by a series of stone walls and timber fences. An electric steel gate gives access onto the driveway which leads up to the yard. On the right hand side of the driveway is a fenced area which is currently used as a chicken run and opposite is a sheltered paved area by the kitchen which is ideal for outdoor dining and barbequing. The formal garden is to the back of the house and is mainly laid to lawn. There are two terraces of lawn which are separated by a colourful and well established planted bed. There is a lovely semi circular stone built seating area which is incorporated into the north wall and by the back door is a raised platform with pergola above. There is a pond at the west end of the garden which is surrounded by decking and is next to the greenhouse. The orchard is across the yard from the main garden and has been planted with a range of fruit trees including: apple, pear, cherry, plum and damson.

Equestrian and Grazing
Lochview is very well set up for those with horses or livestock. There is a large yard with hard standing next to the stables and a gate from here into the riding arena. The arena is approximately 20m x 30m and has a rubber and sand base. There is another gate from the yard into the paddocks which in total extend to approximately 14 acres. There are 4 primary paddocks arranged to facilitate grazing management with 3 having a timber field shelter. The yard has an L shaped stable block with three loose boxes, a tack room, a garden store, shower area, hay barn/ car port, and machinery store. The tack room is fitted with base units with integrated sink and Candy washer / dryer.
