Full description

Halliday Homes are delighted to offer this property, the focal point of a superb church conversion, to the market. Winner of the coveted "Herald Property Awards Best Renovation Project" in 2011, this is a magnificent and unique property which is beautifully presented.

Maintaining a plethora of original features including a superb stained glass window, this triplex property includes the clock tower of the church, which is still a working feature much admired by passers-by.

The imposing double arched doors of the original main entrance to the church provide an exclusive and stunning entrance to this property. The internal accommodation comprises entrance vestibule and hallway with leaded glass windows, which takes you into the main body of the building. On this level are two well-proportioned double bedrooms, both of which include fitted opaque glass wardrobes, with the master bedroom further benefitting from a superb en-suite shower room.

A feature curved staircase leads to the first floor, which hosts a superbly designed in-toto kitchen with integrated Neff appliances and a substantial island unit with Corian worktop. Also on this level are the lounge and a stunning open area which could be utilised as a dining or music room, with a particular feature being a beautiful stained glass window. Exposed beams add to the character of this floor and, to enhance the ambience there is a remote-control operated "mood" lighting system.

Another feature staircase leads to a mezzanine, currently utilised as a home office. The high ceilings on this floor bring a fabulous aura of space to the property.

Perhaps the most unique aspect of this home is the clock tower. Accessed by a stone spiral staircase, there is a room at clock level, currently used as a home gym. The 3 faces of the clock are behind wooden shutters.

There is a useful utility room/store, accessed separately by a stone staircase to the side of the building.

The Chalmers Church development sits in beautifully maintained grounds, with this particular house having the further benefit of its own planted beds around the perimeter. There is one allocated parking space for this property, as well as ample visitor parking.

The development is situated in the heart of sought-after Bridge of Allan. The thriving former spa resort has a fine range of shops, cafes and restaurants, with more extensive shopping facilities being available in nearby Stirling. There is local schooling at nursery and primary level, with secondary schooling at Wallace High in neighbouring Causewayhead. The independent sector is well provided for, with Beaconhurst in the town itself and other independent schools in the area including Dollar and Morrison's Academy. The town also benefits from its proximity to Stirling University, many of whose sporting facilities are available to the public, as well as a local golf course and sports club. In addition there are plentiful open spaces and woodland walks.

Bridge of Allan is well positioned for travel to all major towns and cities in central Scotland. The M9 motorway is close by, as is the A9 which gives quick access to Perth. The international airports of Glasgow and Edinburgh are within easy reach by road and the main line railway station in Bridge of Allan has regular services to both cities.

This is a genuine "one-off" property which can only be truly appreciated by viewing.
