Extending to about 4.65 ha (11.5 acres), Starmyres is a charming small lifestyle farm comprising an impressive recently improved traditional farmhouse, a range of useful traditional and modern outbuildings including a large barn currently used as 3 loose boxes, excellent grazing land suitable for horses or other livestock and a 20m x 40m riding arena.
Starmyres Farmhouse is likely to date back to the late 1800's and is constructed of stone under a pitched slate roof. Later additions have extended the accommodation to create a charming family home of considerable character. From the front garden, the front door leads to a well lit hall and on to a cosy sitting room with an attractive fireplace and a shelved alcove. The spacious dining room also has a delightful fireplace with a wood burning stove and a back boiler that supplements the recently installed oil central heating system. There is a well equipped kitchen with fine views over the yard and steading as well as a good sized utility / rear hall with a large walk in storage cupboard. Also on the ground floor is a study which could also be used as a third bedroom. On the first floor, are a family bathroom and 2 bedrooms with large windows overlooking the garden and fields beyond. The house has considerable character and has been greatly improved by the current owners in recent years. It has a newly installed heating system, double glazing, attractive exposed wooden floors and excellent built in storage space. Outside, there is an enclosed garden with areas of lawn and a number of mature plants and shrubs.
Located to the rear of the house and across the yard is a superb traditional steading, part of which have also been recently upgraded with a new profile steel roof. The steading includes stabling for up to 6 horses, a workshop, implement store, tack room and loft space and currently provides excellent storage as well as long term development potential to create a new dwelling on site (subject to planning).
