Full description

Stunning traditional C listed property, the immediately impressive Clachain House is one of the oldest property in Balfron and when originally built in 1766 sat at the heart of this popular Stirlingshire village. This property is very much part of the history of Balfron serving the community as an Inn towards the end of the 18th century, then as a family home for over 200 years. The original property was extensively remodelled in 1922, hence the dates seen to the front of the property, with a large two storey extension to the rear incorporating two west facing box window formations and a flat-roofed polygonal bay window formation to the gable end of main house.

Maintained by the present owners to an exceptionally high standard and presented to the market in superb condition, retaining many original features this family home provides spacious accommodation over three levels. On the ground floor the reception hall, also extended in the 1920's provides access to the drawing room, dining room, with a hallway leading to the rear of the property and including a winding stone staircase with turned timber balusters leading to the upper floors.

To the left of the reception hall the traditional finely panelled drawing room with a combination of parquet and tiled flooring accesses the polygonal bay window formation overlooking the gardens, on the focal wall there is a recessed log burning stove. The dining room with windows to front and side has on the focal wall a log burning stove and provides access via French doors to the kitchen. This bespoke custom made kitchen with Paul Hodgkiss work surfaces features at its heart a gas fired AGA, the kitchen has side facing windows with additional natural light via a velux window. A rear hallway, open to the main reception hall, which leads to the garden provides access to a shower room and study with a box window formation which could if required serve as a fifth bedroom.

The first floor has two large double bedrooms both with front and rear facing windows, a lovely family bathroom and a bright sitting room to the rear with a west facing box window formation, stairs lead to the attic level where there are two further double bedrooms.

Externally the property has extensive well maintained enclosed gardens bound by a tall stone wall to the front, a gate leads directly from the pavement to the gardens, the gardens are split level with a lawned area and a patio area with plant and shrub beds. The large garage accessed from the road via electric up and over door has a door providing access to the gardens and to the rear of the garage a fabulous garden room could serve as a home office or studio.

The village of Balfron offers an excellent range of local amenities including a selection of shops catering for all day to day requirements. Schooling is available locally at Balfron Primary, the secondary level education at nearby Balfron High School. Public transport services include regular bus service to West Stirling and Glasgow and rail travel is available from Milngavie Railway Station. There is an excellent range of recreational and vocational pursuits and outdoor activities within the area, all easily accessible.

The agents have no hesitation in recommending early internal viewing of this impressive family home to fully appreciate the space and quality of living this home provides.
