Completed in 2013, Baldinnie House is an outstanding contemporary country property, immaculately presented and offering exceptional spacious quality accommodation of a very high standard in an attractive setting. The house offers generous flexible accommodation over two levels centred around the impressive main hallway with galleried landing above, off which is the truly stunning open plan kitchen/dining room/sitting room, and separate family room. A corridor leads to two very good double bedrooms (both with en-suite facilities), and also providing access to the integral double garage. Completing the ground floor is the family shower room and utility room. A beautiful oak staircase leads to the first floor with the impressive galleried landing providing access to the generously proportioned master bedroom with Juliette balcony, dressing area and en-suite bathroom, along with a further double bedroom, again with en-suite facilities. The house has a lovely feel throughout with the high-quality finish and spaciousness of the property being of particular note. The main open plan kitchen/dining room/sitting room is particularly impressive with the beautiful oak kitchen benefitting from an Aga MasterChef with gas hob and four electric ovens. Centrally within the room is a superb Rocal fireplace, with two sets of glazed doors to the garden, one to the terrace at the side of the house and another to the deck to the rear. The separate family room benefits from a stove whilst there is oak flooring and doors throughout much of the property. Multiple Velux windows flood the main hall with light and similarly in the main reception room. There is a fire alarm as well as cat 5 wiring throughout.
The property stands in a charming extensive garden, essentially laid to grass. There is a lovely terraced seating area to the west of the house along with an extensive deck to the north. The gravelled drive offers parking for several vehicles.
