The property is one of a small group of houses forming a steading conversion and is surrounded by open countryside with far reaching views of the munros of Ben Lawers and Glen Lyon. Aberfeldy town centre is a 15 minute walk, via a public footpath. This part of Scotland is famed for the beauty of its natural scenery.
Iain Paterson of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “West Borlick Steading combines the advantages of a wonderful edge of village location with glorious views and easy access to the centre of Aberfeldy.
“The rooms are all generously sized and offer flexible living space and of particular note are the double aspect open plan living space with its feature fireplace, the superb master suite and the mezzanine study area. Added to all this is the benefit of the lovely enclosed garden, also enjoying open outlooks to the hills. We expect a great deal of interest in this property.”
The heart of the house is an open plan kitchen-living-dining room with large windows on two sides which flood the space with natural light. There is a Heta wood burning stove for the winter and in the summer French doors open on to the south-west facing decking and garden. The kitchen has all integrated appliances as well as a central breakfast bar island. There is a useful utility room off the kitchen with garden access. The ground floor also has a generous reception hall, WC, and a double bedroom with en-suite, which is ideal for visitors.
The first floor has a mezzanine landing area which offers great flexibility as a study, a kids’ play area or alternatively could be converted to an additional bedroom. There are a further two generous double bedrooms and a large family bathroom with shower and bath. The first floor is completed by a superb master suite with a full height window to make the most of the breathtaking views, as well as a walk-in dressing room and en-suite with shower and bath.
West Borlick Steading has a pretty garden to the front of the house with a sunny south west facing aspect, a large decking area ideal for outdoor seating which is surrounded by well-maintained lawns, well-stocked borders, a raised vegetable bed, colourful climbing plants and enclosed with mature hedging and fencing to provide privacy.
In the front garden there is also a garden shed and a timber garden room (with power) which is currently used as a store but offers flexibility as a home office, children’s playroom or as an additional reception space. There is also a good-sized gravel parking area.
