STRAWEARN HOUSE

Strawearn House is a modern 5 bedroom U-shaped house worthy of its imposing location over Glenfarg. The house is of a roughcast construction under a slate roof.

The front entrance of Strawearn proudly sits facing east enjoying the prominent view achieved by the houses location. Internally, an expansive living space has been created with a substantial kitchen and dining area, ideal for the family, being serviced by a twin facing stove accessible from either the kitchen space or the neighbouring living room.

The living room of Strawearn is arguably the proverbial jewel in the crown at Candy; with large twin gable windows bathing the room in light with sleek twin chandeliers arrogantly filling the high ceiling room. A separate dining room looks onto the private patio space at the heart of Strawearn, parallel to this dining room is a comfortable office space with patio doors allowing for a relaxing, yet private, work space. There are three double bedrooms on the ground level, all with en-suite bathrooms and French doors, with two further bedrooms upstairs including the large master bedroom which enjoys dual aspect windows and a significant living area.

Strawearn House has been designed to be the ideal family home; with large modern living spaces offering a practical and warm living environment. The present layout of the internal accommodation comprises;

Ground Floor: Vestibule, hallway, living room, kitchen, pantry, utility room, office, bathroom, dining room, study, 3 bedrooms all with en-suites, stairway.

First Floor: bedroom, family bathroom, master bedroom and attic space.

The house enjoys a garden laid to lawn on its eastern aspect. There is a large gravel parking area which leads to a private patio space in the central area of the U-shaped building. The dwelling benefits from a large store, of timber construction, which is split between an open faced section and a secure closed compartment.

Strawearn was designed to accommodate guests under a B&B arrangement. Two of the bedrooms on the lower floor can be utilised for this purpose. They have external doors to the rear courtyard allowing for access into the dining room.

CARAVAN PLOT
