The property sits in around 0.40 of an acre, mostly with a southerly aspect and bound by the charming Gormack Burn. This traditional farmhouse extends across two floors and the accommodation includes the entrance hall, bathroom with white suite and a sitting room with open fire and twin aspect. The very flexible and spacious family room overlooks the rear garden and leads through to the large country style dining kitchen, creating an excellent family living space. Stairs from the kitchen lead up to a double bedroom, also thought ideal as a home office. Accessed from the kitchen is a useful utility room. Returning to the main entrance hall and continuing upstairs, there is an open bright landing.
