Full description

Flur Na H-Alba is an impressive architect designed detached bungalow set within the heart of the Buchanan Castle Estate. Owned by the Duke of Montrose the estate has at its centrepiece the ruined remains of Buchanan Castle and within the grounds its highly regarded golf course. Access to the property is through the impressive original estate gates. A short drive along the tree lined road leads you to the electric gates at the foot of the extensive driveway.

Flur Na H-Alba is a modern bungalow that was built originally in the 1960s that has been extended over the years. It occupies arguably one of the very best positions in the whole estate in grounds of approximately one acre with lovely views to the front, between the trees and over the fairways of Buchanan Castle Golf Course itself. The views are simply stunning. The property's garden is on a gentle hillside site which takes best advantage of this aspect and indeed our owners have invested considerably in landscaping the garden, particularly through the erection of external sundecks which most successfully connect the house with the garden and subsequently the view. The main sundeck is a substantial area accessed from both the lounge and from the kitchen creating a beautiful spot in which to enjoy spring and summer days. Additionally there is a dining deck from the family / dining room via French doors which provides a super spot for pre-dinner drinks or for alfresco dining.

The bungalow extends in total to approximately 1,948 sq, ft. It is well maintained and has a modern re-fitted kitchen leading to the utility room, two bathrooms including an en-suite to the master bedroom, a mains gas central heating system and replacement UPVC double glazing.

The accommodation comprises; entrance dining hall which is set on an open plan basis to the property's sitting room which in turn is semi open-plan to the main lounge - makes for a great entertaining space. Superb views are afforded from the lounge and from the sitting room and in general from almost every room in the house - across the gardens and beyond, to the fairways of Buchanan Castle Estate's golf course and the surrounding area. The family room/formal dining room is set on a lower level and is undoubtedly a feature room in the house - a large family room with a preparation kitchen with cooker and wine cooler and French doors onto the aforementioned dining deck. This is a great room for entertaining - warm and cosy during the winter months and bright and airy with its outdoor deck for those sunny summer and spring days. The refitted kitchen incorporates contemporary white high-gloss units with LED plinth lights and unit downlighters, integrated Stoves oven and grill and a NEFF five ring gas hob. There are four good sized bedrooms including a master suite with French doors onto a morning sundeck, master ensuite four piece bathroom. There is also a white three piece family bathroom.

At the top of the driveway there is a large detached garage / store room which has plumbing and lighting installed. There is also a garden shed providing further storage.

The gardens are bounded by fencing and hedgerows on the periphery with the front perimeter protected by a top quality timber garden fence constructed by the same company that erected the sundecks. Electric driveway gates open to a long gravel driveway which leads up to the garage and the house. Most of the garden is laid to lawn and many specimen native trees have been retained. The rear garden has a lovely winding pathway which leads around the garden which is illuminated by dusk to dawn lighting with various vantage points for bench seating to take in the wonderful views. For families with small children the garden offers an exciting adventure playground.
