Auchindachy House is an outstanding detached house located in a charming, rural, elevated position with wonderful views over Strathisla. Likely to date from the late 1800s, the house is constructed of stone under a pitched slate roof. Auchindachy House is in excellent condition and provides spacious and well-appointed accommodation over two storeys. On the ground floor, the house is entered through a delightful vestibule with a tall corniced ceiling and tiled floor. The main hallway has stairs to the first floor and doors off to a sitting room and lounge. The sitting room is a most impressive room with an attractive marble fireplace, bay window and hardwood flooring. The lounge, which is located opposite, also has a bay window and an open fire with a Riven slate surround and if required would lend itself for use as a 5th bedroom. From the hall, a passage leads to a cloak room and WC, a store with stairs down to the wine cellar/workshop and a door to the dining room. At the end of the passage, a door opens into a superb kitchen with an oil fired Aga, separate oven, a central island with two sinks, a range of well-crafted floor units with space for integrated appliances, granite work surfaces and a very attractive flag stone floor. Glazed double doors from the kitchen lead back to the dining room whilst a rear staircase also provides access to the first floor. An opening from the kitchen leads to a magnificent sun room with triple aspect windows, flag stone floor and French doors to the garden. A further opening from the kitchen leads to a utility room with a further door to the garden. On the first floor, the main landing accesses the master bedroom which has built in mirror fronted wardrobes and an ‘en suite’ shower room, whilst the second bedroom is located directly opposite. There are two further bedrooms, a shower room and a generously sized bathroom with separate shower. The house has considerable character and beautifully combines modern living with all of the traditional features one would hope for in a house of this age and character including cornicing, open fires, wooden skirtings, doors and finishes and hardwood flooring. The sitting room, kitchen and sun room are particularly appealing rooms. The house is heated using oil central heating and is double glazed. It is connected to mains electricity and water and a septic tank.Outside, the grounds extend to about 0.75 acres and are no less impressive than the house. Enclosed by a wall, hedging and mature trees, the grounds include areas of lawn, well stocked beds and borders, two patios / seating areas, a summer house, currently used as a gym and useful garden stores. A detached garage provides excellent storage space whilst the property itself is accessed over a blocked driveway with an electric gate. Ample parking for several vehicles is provided on a gravelled parking area, where there is also an E.V charging point.
