Fallaws House is a superb, substantial detached country property of great character and charm standing in a lovely quiet rural setting at Crombie with only a handful of near neighbours, a short distance to the north of Monikie and about a fifteen minute drive from Broughty Ferry. Shortly to be the home of the new V & A Museum, the resurgent city of Dundee offers an excellent range of shops, services and amenities with Broughty Ferry, Monifieth and Carnoustie also offering a good range of options. Aberdeen is just over an hour to the north with Edinburgh a similar distance south. Home to an array of wildlife, the Crombie area provides easy access to some particularly outstanding and varied countryside with hill, wood, river, farmland and coastline all quite close by. The result is a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling and riding all readily available. Golfers in particular are especially well provided for with an unrivalled selection of highly rated courses within easy striking distance including the Championship Course at Carnoustie and the Old Course at St. Andrews which both regularly host the British Open. Forfar, Edzell, Alyth and Montrose are also on hand. Challenging shooting and fishing may be taken locally whilst the pretty Angus glens such as Isla, Prosen, Clova and Lethnot are temptingly accessible. In terms of days out the stunning sandy beaches at Lunan Bay and St. Cryus, and the red sandstone cliffs at Arbroath, are well within reach. There are also a number of interesting National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including the House of Dun at Montrose and the JM Barrie house, once home to the creator or Peter Pan, in Kirriemuir. Good state schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at the highly regarded High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Montrose, Arbroath, Carnoustie and Dundee with Aberdeen airport just over an hour to the north. Edinburgh airport is about an hour to the south whilst the busy regional airport at Dundee also offers a good range of short-haul flights.
The original section of Fallaws House is believed to date from 1884, having been the Grieves house for the local farm, with extensions having been added in 1998 and 2011 to create a wonderful substantial family house offering impressive deceptively spacious contemporary accommodation of a very high standard. Lying at the heart of the house is the superb open plan kitchen / dining room with large Rangemaster cooker and glazed doors out to the decked BBQ area. There is also a useful walk in pantry. Lying adjacent is the lovely cosy family room complete with wood burning stove, with the spacious laundry to the rear of the house along with WC. The well proportioned sitting room is at the other end of the house, again with wood burning stove, with the sun room off offering excellent additional living space and direct access to the deck. Completing the ground floor is the study / bedroom 6, spacious hall and a good double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower room. Upstairs is the fabulous principal bedroom suite with cathedral ceiling, dressing area and en-suite shower room, along with two further good double bedrooms, single bedroom, family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and separate shower, and hall.
Fallaws House stands in a lovely sizeable garden with generous chipped drive / parking area, neat lawns and an attractive mix of plants trees and shrubs. To the west of the house is a superb, sheltered decked BBQ area, ideal for entertaining, whilst to the rear is a further separate recreational area with state of the art 8 person swim spa, summer house and paved seating area. There is a double garage and timber garden shed.
A short walk from the house is a grazing paddock extending to approximately an acre, with a further useful small paddock adjacent to the house itself.
