In addition there is a neighbouring plot of land of nearly half an acre, with planning permission for construction of a five-bedroom home, which will be sold as a separate lot.

Dating from the 19th century, Braidlea has retained much of its original charm and character, with well-proportioned rooms, traditional fireplaces and working shutters.

Jake Shaw-Tan, of Galbraith said: “Braidlea is an exceptional property, offering the combined benefits of a beautiful and well-appointed house, a manageable amount of grazing land, ready-made stables and extensive woodland, all in a wonderful rural setting. The woodland offers the potential to generate an income from regular felling, or to create a diversity of habitats. Despite the tranquillity and lovely views, the property is within easy reach of Glasgow and the central belt.

“Finally, the neighbouring plot of land, which is for sale separately, offers significant potential to create a bespoke family home in this superb location. Given that planning permission has already been granted and access to the site has been built, this is an excellent opportunity for the purchaser.”

The accommodation at Braidlea includes three reception rooms and five/six bedrooms.

Of particular note is the open plan kitchen – garden room – sitting room, benefiting from a wealth of natural light and with French doors to the patio. The kitchen has a large central island unit with plentiful floor and wall units, Range electric cooker, integral dishwasher, tiled flooring and a useful shelved pantry. The living area has a superb open fireplace and built-in bookcases.

There is also a separate dining room and an elegant drawing room with multi-fuel wood burning stove.

On the first floor there are five generous sized bedrooms, two with built-in showers and mezzanine study area, and two bedrooms sharing a Jack and Jill bathroom. There is a lovely master en suite with roll top bath and separate shower and a stylish family bathroom. The sixth bedroom is currently used as an office. All of the bedrooms have delightful views over the grounds.

The south facing gardens are predominantly to lawn with colourful spring plants such as snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells. The gardens also benefit from a greenhouse and a flagged patio area, an ideal space for alfresco dining. The property has a large gravelled driveway and double garage.

Braidlea sits in approximately 13.39 acres which is predominantly coniferous woodland, offering the potential for felling timber as an income stream, subject to the relevant licences. Further to this there are two small grazing paddocks, three stables for horses and a field shelter.

Braidlea is in an idyllic rural position with lovely views. The village of Douglas has a primary school, a good range of day to day facilities, and provides easy access to the M74 (about 2.8 miles).
