Whistlebrae Steading is a beautiful detached traditional stone steading, converted to an exceptionally high standard and offering a wonderful family home. Sat in around 0.57 of an acre, the grounds are generous with a large south west facing garden, and the house itself offers flexible space and versatility over two floors. The steading was converted by the present owners around 1997 to an exemplary standard, carefully designed by a local architect and sympathetically restored by local tradesman. With a unique style and design, the lounge, dining hall and kitchen area have beautiful bespoke solid oak frames, designed and installed by the renowned and respected ‘Carpenter Oak’. The ceiling beams offer an incredible feature of superior technical design, master craftsmanship and exquisite materials to create an open roof design within the main living areas. The accommodation comprises an entrance vestibule, which in turn leads through to the main dining hall. The dining halloffers an incredible entrance to the home and you immediately notice the bespoke solid oak beams and full height ceilings, setting the unique theme and quality throughout the entire property. This is an extremely flexible space, ideal as a family and dining room and has French doors opening out to the patio area. The quality fitted kitchen has space for dining and is fitted with bespoke wood units and granite worktops. There are integrated appliances and the Falcon range-style cooker and built-in Samsung American-style fridge-freezer will remain. The kitchen also gives access to the utility room and larder. The main lounge also has a beautiful full height ceiling and bespoke wood beams, and there is an open fire with striking brick and granite surround.
