Part Exchange available. This is an attractive, late Georgian country house dating from 1820, at which time it was built in classical principles as the manse for the nearby Carmyllie Kirk. Carmyllie House is a symmetrical house overlooking a crescent-shaped ha-ha, taking full advantage of the magnificent surrounding rural views and looks to the sea in the distance. Acquired by the present owners in 1985, the property was re-wired, re-plumbed and a central heating system was installed at that time. Much of the house was refurbished with careful attention to ensuring that works carried out would blend sympathetically with the original character and features throughout. In 2004 an attractive studio was created out of the former housekeeper’s room and prior to that, a substantial conservatory was added.
This magniﬁcent stone built residence is harled, has a slate roof and there is a traditional Carmyllie slate roof on the store to the rear. Elegant, well-proportioned reception rooms are located at ground ﬂoor level and the bedrooms are arranged over the upper ﬂoors. Downstairs we have an impressive vestibule leading into the entrance hall with stairs to ﬁrst ﬂoor. The drawing room is located to the front with a beautiful ﬁreplace, walk-in bay window and two cupboards. To the other side of the building is the dining room which leads into the study and then onto the conservatory through double doors. This room gives lovely views of the surrounding garden grounds. A three-piece shower room suite is situated next door and then a further door leads into the kitchen/breakfast room. The traditional kitchen boasts a range of oak base units with Hotpoint ceramic hob, Siemens double oven/grill, plumbing for a dishwasher and adequate space for a dining table and six chairs. From the kitchen, a door provides access to the lobby with a door to the rear garden, and then on to a large store room where there is plumbing for a washing machine and fuel storage facilities.
Off the main stairwell, access can be gained to a generously sized studio and three-piece bathroom suite. Carry on upstairs to the ﬁrst ﬂoor, there is the master bedroom which enjoys a front aspect and benefits from a dressing room which could be converted into a lovely en-suite. There are two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom also located on this level. On the second floor, there are two large double bedrooms and a further store room which could be converted into an en-suite shower room to accommodate these two bedrooms.
The garden grounds provide an attractive setting for this outstanding family home. The front garden is laid mainly to lawn with some fine trees incorporated. The walled garden to the side and rear is accessed via an attractive Scottish 17th Century style gate. Within the walled garden, there is a central symmetrical sundial and a paved terrace sits adjacent to the conservatory. At the back of the house a stone built wood/oil shed, aluminium greenhouse and a stone built dog kennel and run are located.
The owners rent the paddock to the front which is approximately two acres for a small sum per year. They would be happy to discuss this with you on the viewing. The owner has also put in planning permission to build two properties within their boundary. Again this is in very early stages but they would be delighted to discuss this with you during the viewing.By appointment through McEwan Fraser Legal on 01382 721 212
