DESCRIPTION Originally built in 1969, Craigard is a well-proportioned detached one and a half storey home which has been modernised to a very high standard both inside and out. The current owners have created a light and airy contemporary feel and have maximised the use of the floor area by adjusting the layout to provide an open plan kitchen/dining/living area which is ideal for family life. A separate sitting room provides more formal living space. The master suite is situated on the ground floor and cleverly incorporates a dressing room as well as an en suite. A useful utility space, boot room and WC complete the accommodation on this level. Upstairs are two double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a single bedroom, reached by a staircase with beautiful solid oak balustrades, which echoes the internal doors.Outside is a large garden with a generous parking and turning area, along with areas of lawn giving plenty of scope for kids, dogs and outside entertaining. A detached double garage has light and power, and a summer house provides somewhere to sit on chillier spring and summer nights. There are wonderful views across open farmland to the front, and the house is situated within very easy walking distance of the primary school. ACCOMMODATION Ground Floor: Entrance Hall.
