The west wing is home to a further utility, conservatory hallway and an impressive billiard room with tall arched window, as well as three bedrooms, the principal benefitting from a chic en suite bathroom.

The split first-floor accommodation comprises a versatile self-contained space above the east wing with a bedroom, bathroom, lounge and dual-aspect kitchen with picture window. Above the west wing there is a large skylit attic space with dressing room and family bathroom while above the central drawing room there are 3 bedrooms, an additional dressing room, a bathroom and a cloakroom.

In addition to the main accommodation there are another two properties within the grounds. Gardeners Cottage accommodation comprises entrance vestibule, lounge, 2 bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom.

Kinsteary House sits in established, tranquil private grounds of approximately 19 acres with a plethora of mature, specimen and colourful blossom trees throughout. The formally arranged courtyard garden is enclosed with wrought iron fencing and feature neat and vibrant planting and flowerbeds, topiary, decorative stone pathways and a paved south-facing sun terrace. Further is the expansive and historic “B" listed walled garden with lawn and fruit trees. A large sweeping gravelled in and out driveway flows around the estate, whilst the charming and well-presented two-bedroom stone-built cottage sits beside the substantial lochan, paddock and large triple sheds/stables.
