Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a superbly appointed detached fam ily home dating to circa 1881, in a commanding position above the Glen Road in Bridge of Allan. Set in a fine garden with mature trees and extending to over 0.8 acres in the very sought-after Upper Glen Road, the plot has the benefit of planning permission for a substantial new build "family annexe" providing accommodation and a new double garage on the existing detached double garage site. Orchard House has a wealth of period features including fantastic cornicing, panelled doors and working shutters in some rooms. Fixtures and fittings are of a standard befitting such an outstanding property.

Being set back in the plot thus offering excellent privacy, the elevated position of the house leads to fabulous views over the glen and on to Ben Ledi in the distance.

The internal accommodation comprises of, on the ground floor, fine entrance vestibule, hall, sitting room, bay-windowed dining room, kitchen, family room, conservatory, utility room, inner hall, bedroom/study, shower room and a further wc. A magnificent period pitch pine staircase leads to the upper level with a fine cupola, on which are four well-proportioned bedrooms (the master offering en-suite shower facilities) and a family bathroom. The property benefits from gas-fired central heating, high standards of insulation and professionally restored windows.
Externally, there is a detached double garage, two summerhouses, a further traditional outbuilding and a separately housed hot tub. The extensive garden grounds feature well-tended lawns with mature trees and shrubs to the front and attractive terraces with patios, further lawns and planted areas to the rear. In addition to the garage there is ample off-road parking on the long tarmacadam driveway, which is accessed via entrance gates.

Orchard House is within walking distance of the heart of 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.
