The master bedroom is a double aspect room with views over the grounds, and a bank of fitted wardrobes along one wall.
There are four further bedrooms, three of which have fitted wardrobes.
The family bathroom has a panel-enclosed bath with mixer taps and shower attachment, pedestal wash basin and WC.

Wedderlie House is the last house at the end of a no-through road, a five bar gate leads onto the driveway over a bridge onto a parking/turning area for a number of vehicles, leading round to the garage and carport to the rear.
There is a terrace adjoining two sides of the property with a brick retaining wall, having an outlook over the garden and enjoying privacy.
The gardens are a plantsman’s paradise and in the current ownership have been stocked with numerous varieties of rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas, magnolias and other species from the Himalayas and major plant collections. There are also a number of mature oak trees and Scots Pines.
Various pathways intersect the semi-woodland leading down to a small stream.

In all about 2.42 acres.
