Whilst enjoying seclusion and privacy within this leafy pocket of Eskbank, this charming property is superbly positioned just a stone’s throw away from some lovely local pubs and restaurants. This wonderful family home occupies a fantastic location set within lovely grounds extending to approximately 4.18 acres. The grounds include ornamental gardens, paddocks, a walled kitchen garden with three large greenhouses, a large potting shed, a large brick built store room and a large wooden barn situated away from the house, all of which are bordered by the river North Esk. Ideally positioned amongst sloping grounds and surrounding woodlands makes this property ideal for families with children, as it ensures complete privacy, seclusion and security.
Upon entering the grounds your breath is taken away by this truly exceptional property. Set over two floors with spacious and versatile accommodation this property would make an ideal family home.
Glenarch House is an impressive country residence built in the early part of the 19th Century. Annexed to the main building is the guest wing comprising the old coach house and stabling block.
The original house was significantly enhanced in the late 19th Century. At the same time the domestic offices and stable courtyard were enlarged to reflect the enhanced status of the house. A spectacular and rusticated double summer house was built later and is now separately listed by Historic Scotland for its outstanding architectural merit.
As one would expect, a wealth of period detailing has been retained, most noticeably cornice work, original fire places, tiled floor, working shutters which will no doubt appeal to the discerning buyer.
On entering the home through the entrance vestibule and hallway, it is immediately apparent that the current owners have meticulously looked after this family home, which is fit for today’s modern living. Room usage throughout can be adapted to meet individual purchasers’ needs and will comfortably provide for a larger family. The property is finished to a high standard throughout and one can enjoy spacious apartments found in traditional builds. Great emphasis has been placed on the creation of easily managed and free-flowing space on a bright and fresh layout.
In more detail, the accommodation comprises: entrance vestibule leading into the welcoming entrance hall, allowing access to the sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen, a large shower room, a store and feature staircase which leads to the upper level.
To the front of the property there is an immediately impressive sitting room featuring a three light curved bay window and a large box bay window, which allows the room to be flooded with natural light. The room boasts an attractive Adam Style feature fireplace with an ornate pine and gesso mantel, ceiling rose and fabulous cornicing. For some family time, there’s an additional dining room and lounge/study. The fully fitted breakfasting kitchen has been beautifully fitted to include a quality range of floor and wall mounted units which provides efficient workspace. The kitchen further benefits from a Belling LPG duel fuel range cooker with extractor hood and a cast iron fireplace with a wood burning stove making this the ideal kitchen for aspiring chefs! Off the kitchen is the utility room. The utility room provides plumbing facilities for a washing machine and dishwasher and two Belfast style sinks. This zone also provides access to the conservatory followed by the guest wing.
The original coach house and stable block have been converted to provide five bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities and a laundry room. In addition to access through the conservatory the guest wing has a front door accessed from the courtyard allowing it to be separated as necessary from the rest of the house.
The original stone staircase with iron balustrade leads to the upper level of the accommodation, where you will find four generous sized bedrooms all with a range of furniture configurations. The ample space is accentuated by built-in fitted wardrobes, which provide excellent storage space. The master bedroom benefits from a beautiful en-suite bathroom with a free standing bath and tiled floor. The first floor also has a drawingroom with floor to ceiling windows and a similar fire place to the sitting room. A three piece family bathroom suite and shower cubicle completes the impressive accommodation internally.
