Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Wester Gauldwell House is a very impressive, extended traditional farmhouse located in an accessible rural setting near Craigellachie. Likely to date from the mid to late 1800s, the house has been comprehensively renovated in relatively recent years to create what is now a fabulous family home of great character. The accommodation is provided over two storeys and on the ground floor is accessed through a spacious vestibule with a tiled floor. A good sized hallway leads to an impressive dual aspect sitting room with a tall corniced ceiling and an attractive fireplace with a wood burning stove. From here, a door leads to a family room/play room which is currently used as a study. With a large picture window, this is a particularly bright and airy room. On the opposite side of the hall is a dining room with a magnificent fireplace with a stone surround. At the heart of the house is a well equipped dining kitchen with an oil fired Aga, central island unit, a good range of wall and floor units, various integrated appliances including a Neff oven and coffee machine, slabbed floor and French doors to the garden. A rear hall/boot room and utility room complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor, a half landing with built in shelving leads to three good sized bedrooms with the master suite comprising a double bedroom, dressing room and en suite bathroom. A walk in linen cupboard provides excellent storage space. The first floor accommodation is completed by a family bathroom which leads to a separate fourth bedroom.

Wester Gauldwell House has all of the features one would hope to fine in a property of this age and character, tall corniced ceiling, fireplaces and working timber shutters. The house is heated using oil central heating.

Outside, the grounds are equally as appealing. Extending to over 4 acres, they include a generously sized and well maintained garden with areas of lawn, a patio accessed from the kitchen, various raised beds and a large poly tunnel. There is a superb 20m x 40m (approximate) sand based riding arena enclosed by a post and rail fence together with a superb timber built barn (about 14.6m x 7.8m) with a concrete floor, power and water supply. A further garage/hay store (about 5.7m x 3.7m) provides excellent storage space. A paddock of about 3 acres provides excellent grazing for horses, ponies or other livestock whilst there is also a further timber built field shelter (about 3.8m x 4.3m).

In essence, Wester Gauldwell House is a highly desirable property in a popular location. It will appeal to families looking for a spacious country home as well as to those with equestrian or livestock interests.
