Sitting in a secluded and very tranquil position, Birklaw enjoys a wonderful rural position and yet is only 10 minutes’ drive from a supermarket, train station and all of the facilities available in Keith. Built in 2012, the house is of timber frame construction with part lime render and part Siberian Larch cladding under a pitched slate roof. Well designed and flexible accommodation is provided over two storeys. On the ground floor, the house is entered through the spacious vestibule / boot room. This in turn leads to a magnificent triple aspect open plan dining / living room which has a wood burning stove, a full height ceiling, 2 pairs of sliding doors to a verandah, and oak flooring. Stairs from here lead to the first floor whilst a door and worktop / bar open to the well-equipped kitchen. The kitchen has a good range of wall and floor units, various integrated appliances, an Oak worktop and Oak flooring. A door leads to a utility / rear hall which also has a good range of fitted units as well as a large walk-in larder. Doors lead to the WC / cloak room and also to the rear garden. There are two generously sized bedrooms on the ground floor, both of which have built in storage and full height tilt and turn windows which lead out to the verandah. The master bedroom has an ‘en suite’ shower room whilst a family bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor, there is a landing / seating area, a shower room and two further bedrooms.
Birklaw appears to be in excellent condition and is tastefully decorated throughout. The house
is double glazed (Nordan) and heated using oil central heating with under floor heating in the
ground floor bathroom and shower room. Having been built to a high standard and with high
levels of insulation, the property is energy efficient.
Outside, the garden and grounds include many mature trees with a good range of species including Birch, Oak, Beech, Blackthorn, Hazel and Wild Cherry. There are areas of lawn and ample parking space for several vehicles on a gravelled driveway. In addition, there is a superb double garage (about 6.2m x 6.6m which has been designed to allow for the creation of additional accommodation in the loft space (subject to planning). The garden also includes a poly tunnel and in ground trampoline.
