Description

Lindsay House is a most attractive property, situated towards the northern end of the village, and within easy walking distance of the park and school, as well as all the other amenities within Edzell. The house is believed to date from the 1850s and was thought to have been built as two houses and later converted into one. At one point it was used as the premises for a bank. Lindsay House was acquired by the sellers in 2004. Since then they have made considerable improvements. Shortly after acquiring the house they refurbished the kitchen and utility room. The bathroom and shower rooms have also been refurbished and since 2012 the double glazed windows have been replaced and oak flooring has been laid in the living room and dining room. As such it is a very well presented house, but it still retains much of its original character and features.

It is an imposing house, which fronts onto the High Street, and has a large enclosed garden to the rear. Stone built, the property displays a dressed stone double bay frontage, and has a slate roof. It is attached to No 61 High Street next door, by its own garage and a private walkway separates it from No 69 High Street at the other side. It is a spacious house. On the ground floor are three imposing reception rooms and the breakfasting kitchen, while just outside is the useful utility room and store room. There is also a shower room at ground floor level. Upstairs on the first floor are five good sized bedrooms, a further shower room and bathroom. The master bedroom, at the rear of the house, has an interlinking door to the bathroom. On the top floor is an attic room. As such it is a property that is ideal for both modern family living and for entertaining and benefits from period features such as cornices in the hallway, principal rooms and bedrooms, together with panelled doors.

To the side of the house is an attached garage with an electric up and over door, concrete floor and access through to the garden. The enclosed garden behind the house is mainly down to lawn with trees and shrubs, together with a wooden Wendy house, wooden seated arbour and a kennel. Adjacent to the house is raised decking which provides an ideal seating and entertaining area.
