Property Round-Up: Homes to Fall In Love With
Love is in the air this week as our property round-up looks at homes to fall in love with – including a ‘couple’ new to the market this week!
Looking From a Window Above
New to the market with our Edinburgh office, Cluny House is a luxury modern country home on the outskirts of the village of Howgate, near Penicuik. The property’s double height windows and glass doors make for an extremely bright living space (pictured above) perfect for family living and entertaining as well as taking advantage of the views over the gardens and beyond.
Also new to the market this week, Summerfield offers a chance to enjoy life among the rolling Perthshire countryside close to the popular village of Scone and conveniently located for Perth. In addition to the main house a two bedroom cottage – Summerfield View - provides a potential extra income as a holiday let while stabling, a paddock and a riding arena mean your horse can feel loved to!
Signed, Sealed, Delivered
This home in the Highland village of Kingussie will be no stranger to love letters and Valentine cards: in an earlier life it was the village post office! Renovated and converted by the current owners in the 1990s, The Post House still has many of its original features including the original hardwood counters in the entrance hall; a large copper parcel flap which serves as a hatch between the hall and dining area while one of the house’s six bedrooms has another original counter complete with pigeon holes.
When You Walk in the Room
Ultimately, picking a perfect Valentine’s Day property is a matter of personal taste. Some might go for grand and gorgeous while others favour comfort and cosiness – but it's hard to overlook a home with its own ‘love room’! The love room was the name given to a small upstairs sitting room of Auchinroath House – a baronial country home in the Glen of Rothes. While it provided a place for courting couples to meet in days gone by, the sensibilities of the time were maintained as throughout any rendezvous a chaperone would wait in the adjoining turret.
