Property Description

Full description

Stockiemuir Cottage is a superb family home enjoying a fabulous rural location just past the Queens View (The Whangie) and set in beautiful Scottish countryside, yet within an easy and striking distance of Bearsden (8 miles), Glasgow (13.5 miles) and, closer still, Killearn (3.4 miles). The property which was rebuilt in 1994 from the ruins of two stone cottages, has been constructed to the highest of standards, with modern insulation qualities and has rebuit stone walls and a slate roof, retaining a traditional cottage feel with many lovely features. The main house sits within a large garden of more than 1 acre surrounded by deer fencing with mature shrubs and trees. A high hedge to its rear elevation provides further screening from Stockiemuir Road.
In addition to the Cottage's formal garden there are two plots of land, including one opposite the property, giving overall acreage of approximately fourteen acres.
The property is now available for sale as one whole or as two separate lots, with the Cottage and its two adjoining fields on the west side of the road forming lot 1. The land opposite comprises lot 2 and includes the ruins of a former cottage with potential for development, subject of course to the necessary planning approval and consents being obtained.

The home itself offers bright and generously proportioned accommodation with an entrance porch providing access into an entrance hallway, which itself leads into a large central hall. A delightful feature sitting room offers a vaulted ceiling with windows on three sides, flooding the room with light, and provides views across the enclosed well stocked gardens. At the rear of this room, there is a fireplace which provides a cosier snug sitting area. A formal dining room through the hallway provides a very useful entertaining space and with its generously sized dining kitchen it offers abundant storage space and, at its heart there is an oil fired range cooker. There is a large utility room which offers space for laundry with ceiling pulley for drying. There is door access from the rear of the cottage from the utility room, which allows easy access to the garden and log stores. The accommodation on the ground floor is complemented by a shower room.

A return flight staircase from the central hall leads to the upstairs accommodation and there are four bedrooms on offer on this floor, with the guest bedroom offering an attractive en-suite shower room. The upstairs accommodation is completed by the family bathroom. The home is warmed by oil fired central heating and has double glazed cottage style windows

To the outside, in addition to the well stocked mature gardens, there is a lovely outdoor dining area with built in barbeque and pergola walkway. A substantial detached double garage with loft space (built to living standard and suitable for further development as a granny annexe or office, subject to planning and necessary consents being obtained ) provides excellent storage with an attached greenhouse and potting shed. At the rear of the garage, there are two log stores, oil storage tank and bin store, which are covered.

Situation:

Stockiemuir Cottage enjoys convenient access to a wide range of amenities and is within commuting distance of Glasgow (13.5 miles) and Milngavie Railway Station where there is a regular service to Glasgow (four trains an hour), with a direct service through to Edinburgh, Waverley. The village of Killearn offers local primary schooling, with secondary schooling at Balfron High (school bus picks up from outside the cottage) as well as local shopping. For those who enjoy outside pursuits, the area is ideally located to provide access to the Kilpatrick Hills and to its many local golf courses and, also on the doorstep, the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park where there are excellent hillwalking and mountain bike tracks. Further to the west and south, Milngavie and Bearsden offer a wider range of shopping facilities with several supermarkets including Waitrose, Marks and Spencer, Tesco and Asda as well as independent retailers.
