Fine townhouse which has been extended and modernised

Location

Glenwood is situated on Kinnordy Road close to the northern edge of Kirriemuir yet within easy reach of the town centre. Kirriemuir is an attractive town, only some 5 miles from the A90 dual carriageway, allowing easy access to both Aberdeen and the north and to Dundee and the south. It is well known as the birthplace of J M Barrie, author of Peter Pan. The town lies at the foot of Angus Glens which provide some of the best hill walking in eastern Scotland. There is skiing at Glenshee. Fishing is available on the North and South Esks.

The town provides local schooling, including Northmuir Primary and Websters Secondary school, a good array of independent shops and a supermarket, together with leisure, business and community facilities. Forfar, the county town, lies 6 miles distant and has a wide range of services including a new sports and leisure centre. Dundee provides all the facilities expected of a major city and is the location of the new V&A museum. Private schooling is available at Dundee High School with a dedicated bus service from Forfar. There is a railway station at Dundee with mainline services, including a sleeper to London. Aberdeen and Edinburgh airports provide a range of domestic and international flights. There is an airport at Dundee with flights to London Stansted. Journey times to Aberdeen and its airport will be much reduced with the opening of the Western Peripheral Route around Aberdeen.

Attractions in the area include Barrie’s Birthplace (National Trust for Scotland) in Kirriemuir, Glamis Castle and the Loch of Kinnordy Nature Reserve. In addition to golf courses at Kirriemuir and Forfar there are three courses at Alyth and the championship courses at Carnoustie and Rosemount (Blairgowrie) are within easy driving distance. There are pleasant sandy beaches at Lunan Bay and St Cyrus.

Description

Glenwood is an attractive and discreetly located townhouse. It has a harled and Fyfestone finish and a tiled roof and is surrounded by its own attractive and well laid out gardens, and is well set back from the road from which it is screened by trees. The house originally dates from the 1930s / 1940s. It was extended in the late 1980s and again in the 1990s, and was acquired by the sellers in 2002. In 2003 / 2004 they undertook further improvements including the addition of the impressive sun room, extending up into the roof space and the installation of two dormer windows to create the games room and additional bedroom. At the same time the garage was built and the house was renovated. The drive was re-tarred in 2014 and new gate piers were added.

The rooms at Glenwood are well proportioned and the house is fully double glazed and also benefits from some discreetly mounted solar panels. Internally the house has traditional features such as cornicings in the principal reception rooms and bedrooms. It is ideal for modern family living and for entertaining, particularly with the sun room and two main reception rooms off the hallway and the games room upstairs. From the stone gate piers a tarred drive leads up to tarred parking and turning areas at the front of the house, and continues on to the rear.

A partially glazed front door opens to a sun room, with ornate cornicing, French doors to the garden, tiled floor and an inner partially glazed door with etched glass to the hallway.
