A beautifully presented contemporary house with land in a rural but accessible location.
Mill Lodge is situated in the Carse of Stirling, just a few miles to the west of Stirling city centre. The countryside around Mill Lodge is typified by scattered farmhouses, steadings and open farmland interspersed with trees and woodland. As the land is relatively low lying, the views are extensive, taking in the hills of the Trossachs to the west and the Touch Hills to the south.
The local villages of Thornhill, Kippen and Gargunnock are all within about 6 miles of Mill Lodge and have thriving local communities with village pubs, post offices and primary schools. There are secondary schools in Stirling and in Callander. In addition, there is private schooling at Beaconhurst School in Bridge of Allan for both primary and secondary school ages, further augmented by Ardvreck and Morrisons in Crieff as well as Dollar Academy.
Bridge of Allan is the home of Stirling University which has a sports centre and the MacRobert Arts Centre with a theatre and cinema. Stirling, with its historic castle, has a selection of professional, retail and leisure facilities as well as a train station, and is also ideally placed for motorway commuting to Edinburgh, Glasgow or Perth.
Mill Lodge is a beautifully finished contemporary home which was constructed in 2013. With a slate roof, rendered walls and sash and case windows, the house has an appealing traditional style and fits comfortably in its rural surroundings. The house is situated among a small group of properties on Rossburn Lane.
A beautiful new stone dyke frames the entrance to Mill Lodge and a neat gravel driveway leads up to a parking area beside the house. Overhanging eaves provide cover over the front door which opens to the bright entrance hall. Porcelanosa tiles have been laid throughout the reception hall and main reception areas providing a seamless flow into the sitting room and the kitchen. The sitting room has been beautifully decorated with paint colours to complement the floor tiles and has atmospheric lighting as well as a multi fuel stove. Double doors open onto a decked sitting area which is also accessible from the kitchen.
The kitchen is one of the most beautiful rooms in the house. With its full height ceiling, south facing French windows and roof lights as well as windows facing north and west, it is filled with light. A bespoke Steven Burgess kitchen with a mixture of oak and painted units is topped with a slate work surface and incorporates appliances which include an American style fridge freezer. The five ring electric range is framed by oak cabinets and has a cheerful splashback with a game bird design. Strategically placed pendant lights provide atmospheric lighting over the dining area and a cosy wood burner sits below a timber mantel. There is space for comfortable seating beside double doors which can be opened onto the decking in the summer.
From the kitchen there is access to the utility room which has useful storage, space for a dog bed and a back door. There is access from both the utility room and the hall into a wet room which, along with all the bathrooms, was designed and fitted by Martin Craig of Stirling. On the ground floor there is also a double bedroom and an office / bedroom 4. On the first floor the master bedroom has a built in wardrobe and a contemporary en suite shower room. There is one further double bedroom and a family bathroom.
Mill Lodge is in move in condition and although it is four years old it feels brand new. Details such as the timber double glazed windows, plantation blinds, Farrow and Ball paint and designer kitchen and bathrooms are all testament to the quality of its finish.
Mill Lodge sits in about 0.58 acres of garden which is mainly neat lawn. There is lots of scope for a buyer to develop the garden further by planting hedges and creating borders and beds. A substantial garden shed is situated immediately behind the house and serves as a log shed and garden store.
Planning permission has been granted (15/00516/FUL) for the construction of a combined garage and stable block within the garden. Plans are available from the selling agent.
About 10.40 acres of grazing is situated behind the house as shown on the sale plan.
Square Footage: 1,772 sq ft
Acreage: 10.98 Acres
