Location

New Mains House is ideally placed for access to all of Scotland's major cities. The M90 gives quick access to both Perth and Edinburgh. There is a Park and Ride service at Kinross with regular express coach services to Edinburgh and Perth. There is a train station at Inverkeithing with services into both Haymarket and Edinburgh Waverley, as well as a further Park and Ride service. Edinburgh Airport, situated on the western periphery of Edinburgh, has a wide range of domestic and international flights.

New Mains House is in the catchment area for Milnathort Primary School. There are a number of private schools within easy reach including Strathallan, Craigclowan, Kilgraston, Dollar Academy, Glenalmond and St Leonards.

Nearby Kinross is an attractive county town which offers a wide range of local facilities, including shops, professional services, primary and secondary schooling, restaurants, several hotels, a curling rink, a supermarket and two golf courses.

The Loch Leven Heritage Trail is a unique waterside route which runs for almost 8 miles around the north and east shores of Loch Leven, from the Pier, Kinross to the RSPB reserve at Vane Farm, linking natural, historic and cultural heritage sites. The loch is also renowned for its excellent brown trout fishing and for Loch Leven Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was held prisoner from 1567 until her escape in 1568. The beautiful countryside surrounding it provides further walking, cycling and riding opportunities. The neighbouring equestrian centre may provide livery.

Description

New Mains House is an immaculate and superbly finished family house situated in an ideal location for commuting to both Edinburgh and Perth. The house was built in 2006 and has recently been extended by the current owners to provide further first floor accommodation at the rear of the property. It sits in about 3.2 acres of grounds with a paddock to the north and superb views across the neighbouring farmland and towards the Ochil Hills.

The house is approached by a tarmac road, lined with lantern street lamps, which sweeps through a pillared entrance with electric wrought iron gates to the turning circle at the front of the house. The drive continues round to a second access approaching the courtyard. A porch flanked by stone pillars leads to the front door. Off the inner porch there is a cloakroom and a WC and the principal accommodation lies off the magnificent entrance hall. This has decorative pillars and ceiling plasterwork as well as the large open staircase leading up to the first floor galleried landing. The dining room and drawing room are both open plan and are located off the entrance hall. The drawing room has a wood burning stove set into a stone surround and double doors lead through to the north facing sun room. This has superb views over the paddock, the neighbouring fields and towards the Ochil Hills. It also has doors leading out to the side of the house. The dining room has views over the front of the house through a large bay window and a door leading into the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of oak cabinets with Corian worktops as well as a range of high spec appliances. These include a Neff fridge freezer, a Hotpoint wine cooler, a Neff warming plate and a Neff convection oven/microwave. There is also a large central island with a two oven / one grill Rangemaster with hobs and extractor fan over. Glass doors lead out to the south facing terrace. The open plan family room sits off the kitchen and has doors leading to the courtyard and a further door connecting back round to the entrance hall. The games room also sits off the entrance hall and offers fantastic entertaining space. There is a fitted bar at one end and a seating area at the other with doors leading onto the courtyard and out to the north of the house. It is overlooked by the first floor sitting room/gym area. A door connects through to the rear hallway off which there are two double bedrooms, a shower room and a library/reading area. The ground floor is completed by the utility room which sits off the kitchen and is fitted with a Corian work surface incorporating a sink and units as well as plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Adjacent to this there is a boiler room, WC, store and a small study. A second boiler is located within an airing cupboard off the rear hallway and serves the rear wing of the property.

The impressive American white oak staircase leads up from the main entrance hall to the first floor landing. Situated immediately off the landing there are three double bedrooms, two of which have superb views to the west over the front garden and neighbouring fields. All three bedrooms have dressing rooms and en suite bathrooms. Also off the landing is an open sitting room that is currently used as a gym space and overlooks the games room below. A separate staircase leads up from the rear hallway on the ground floor to two double bedrooms above and a seating/play area.

Outside

The gardens and grounds at New Mains House are beautifully presented and well maintained. The front garden is interspersed with well stocked flower beds with several mature trees passing along the southern most boundary. The western boundary is enclosed by a stone wall with stone pillars giving access to the driveway and there is a stone wall with pillars also to the rear driveway which approaches the courtyard.

There is parking to the front of the house with a large turning circle. However, the principal parking is to the rear where there is an integral triple garage. It has three electric up and over doors and a workshop area. A side door connects through to the courtyard. There is access through wooden gates and under two stone archways leading into the courtyard.

New Mains House has excellent outdoor entertaining areas with paved terraces both to the north and south offering superb views. The courtyard is also a fantastic enclosed entertaining area with doors leading into the family room, games room, utility room, garage and a ground floor bedroom (currently a gym).
