Birchbank House is an impressive detached house located in a secluded yet accessible rural setting in Glen Rinnes. Originally built in the 1960’s as a school, Birchbank House has been converted into a stunning family home commanding fine views over Ben Rinnes and the surrounding countryside. The front door opens into a vestibule and on to a dining kitchen.
The dining kitchen has an excellent range of timber wall and floor units providing ample storage space, a Belfast sink, and an integrated dishwasher. A door opens to the main hallway from which the remainder of the accommodation is accessed. To the left is a good sized bedroom with an en suite shower room. Further down the hallway on the right is the master bedroom (also with an en suite bathroom) which is generously sized and wonderfully light. At the end of the hallway is a laundry room with space for white goods, a sink and shelves for linen. At the opposite end of the hallway is a magnificent and generously sized drawing room with large dual aspect windows that overlook the garden, whilst an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove provides a wonderful focal point. Leaving the drawing room, to the right there is a bedroom/study. The sun room also has views over the garden and countryside and French doors out to the garden. The accommodation is completed by a further good sized bedroom, an impressive family shower room and a boiler room. Overall, the house appears to be in excellent condition and is tastefully decorated throughout. It has a flexible room layout whilst large windows flood the interior with natural light and give it a bright and airy atmosphere.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
Outside, the house is accessed over a tree lined private driveway with ample parking available to the front of the house as well as under a car port to the side of the house. The garden is as impressive as the house and extends to about 1.58 acres, comprising areas of lawn, well stocked beds and borders, raised vegetable beds, a pond, polytunnel, 2 outside storage sheds and an orchard.
