Corrennie Schoolhouse is a fine traditional property with a south facing aspect, and stands proudly amongst beautiful garden grounds and land of around 14 acres. Formerly the local school, this charming traditional home has versatile accommodation over two floors and was more recently extended by the present owners to create further accommodation. The schoolhouse comprises an entrance porch, main reception hall, sitting room with bay window and open fire. The kitchen leads through to the breakfast room, a bright room with large windows overlooking the garden terrace. The dining room is a beautiful spacious room and could also be the 4th bedroom. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is the cloakroom and utility room. Continuing up the main stairs there is a landing with generous linen cupboard and the master bedroom with French doors opening out to the balcony. This room also enjoys a dressing area, with fitted wardrobes, and an ensuite bathroom with shower. Bedroom 2 is generously proportioned and there is the main family bathroom. To the rear of the house there is a separate stair case providing access to bedroom 3, currently used as a home office.
The garden grounds surrounding the house have been beautifully created and maintained, with a garden terrace lying adjacent to the house for outdoor dining. There are large sweeping lawns with scattered mature trees and fruit trees and natural paths meander through the grounds. During the spring and summer months, there’s an array of colourful rhododendrons and a blanket of daffodils, and a circular hedge provides a secret, sheltered garden area. The grounds of Corrennie Schoolhouse offer space, tranquillity and privacy and an incredible outdoor space for families to enjoy and discover. To the south the land is bound by the Douglas Burn and to the North by Corrybeg Woods, offering endless walks and wildlife. A summerhouse with terrace is perfectly placed on the western boundary to enjoy the evening sunsets and views across the rolling countryside.
