MAINS OF CULTS FARM
Commanding breath taking views of the surrounding rolling countryside Mains of Cults farmhouse is believed to date back to around 1898 and was built as a traditional farmhouse of stone construction with slated roof. The property has now been in the ownership of the existing owners since 2007 and in that time they have greatly improved the house with a large extension and full renovation project bringing the spacious home into modern day standards. The property has been decorated in neutral tones creating a bright calming ambience complimented by neutral carpeting, wood or tiled flooring throughout. On entering the property, via a glazed exterior door, the bright hallway provides access to the main public rooms and features wood flooring. The lounge enjoys a bright double aspect design with window to the front and full length window to the side. The lounge has a lovely wood burning stove which is set on a stone hearth, wood floor and a door leads through to the spacious study with rear facing window. The family / dining kitchen is sure to be the main hub of the house and is fitted with a wide range of modern base and wall units with composite work surfaces and a 1 ½ composite sink and drainer with mixer tap. Integrated appliances include an oven, hob, hood, microwave, dish washer and there is space for an American style fridge freezer.
