Description

Milkwood, aptly named as it was formerly one of Scotland's earliest recorded automated dairy parlours dating back to 1893, is now a delightful and spacious detached family home. The property is set at the edge of a converted steading and is mainly constructed out of red sandstone with slate roof.

A covered porch leads to the front door, which opens into a vestibule and then a welcoming main hall. From the hall a WC and cloakroom are accessed. Glass French doors open into the formal dining room, which is lit by large dual aspect windows. Further down the hall is a large farmhouse kitchen with breakfast and sitting area, which features fitted base cabinets, a double range style cooker, and peninsular unit. The kitchen includes a spacious larder, as well as access to the utility room. Access to the garden is through a stable door from the sitting area which has large windows overlooking the garden and conservatory.

At the end of the hall is a large living room, with three French doors opening up on to the loggia and garden. A striking brick fireplace with multi fuel stove provides a focal point for the room, with further features including a library adjacent to the door leading to an independent suite. The suite comprises of sitting room and bedroom with an en suite shower room. There is access outside to the loggia and garden from this bedroom.

From the main hall, the staircase leads up to a bright first floor landing where four double bedrooms, family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and shower, and a generous linen cupboard are all accessed. The first bedroom on the landing overlooks the surrounding woodland and has a window seat to enjoy the view. There is access to eaves storage from this bedroom. The second bedroom has stunning views northwards and the third bedroom also overlooks the surrounding woodlands. The linen cupboard contains the hot water tank, loft access and houses the Ductex ventilation system which extracts air from wet spaces such as bathrooms, kitchen and utility room whilst bringing in fresh air to living spaces throughout the house.

At the end of the landing hall is the master suite with en suite shower room featuring a walk in shower, WC and two basins. The main room is a lovely bright space with two dormer windows and a skylight. There is a good size dressing room to the rear of the room, with a further box room with ample storage space.

Outside

A gravelled area leads up to the door of the double garage which is integrated into the property. The door at the rear of the garage leads into the boiler and storage room which is adjacent to the utility room. A spacious conservatory opens out onto the rear landscaped garden.

A gravel path winds down past a rock garden to a sheltered area with shrubs and small trees.
