54 Woolcarder's Court
Cambusbarron is a quiet village located to the southwest of Stirling. There is evidence of settlement in Cambusbarron since the Bronze Age and several forts dating from the Iron Age have been found near the village. One such fort is located at Gillies Hill, a large semi-natural ancient woodland area with a range of unusual wildlife, thought to be the site of Robert the Bruce's camp shortly before the Battle of Bannockburn. Village amenities include a Post Office, Pharmacy, Butcher and local pub.
Woolcarder's Court lies within idyllic open Stirlingshire farmland just minutes from Stirling city centre. This is a most unique property as it enjoys a peaceful rural position yet is such a short distance from an abundance of amenities in Stirling which was granted city status in 2002 as part of Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee. Stirling is clustered around a large fortress and medieval old town. Once the capital of Scotland, Stirling contains the Great Hall and the Renaissance within Stirling Castle. Stirling also has its medieval parish church, the Church of the Holy Rude, where King James VI was crowned King of Scots on 29 July 1567. The Holy Rude still functions, with a service every Sunday. This corridor of the country has endured lasting popularity with commuters, enjoying enviable communications and easy access into the main motorway networks. There are medical, professional and business services, extensive High Street retailing, a shopping centre, a retail park, and a number of large superstores and an abundance of leisure facilities in Stirling. There is a plethora of local walks and the Trossach hills and munros are within easy reach. From the property there are views of Ben Lomond 3195ft and also Ben Ledi a Corbett off 2873ft. Reputable salmon and trout fishing can be found on the River Teith. Nearby Loch Lomond is renowned for its water sports including sailing, windsurfing, water skiing and wake boarding, as well as further fishing. Golfing opportunities in the area include courses at Stirling, Callander, Buchanan Castle, Balfron and Dunblane. The international acclaimed golf courses of Gleneagles Hotel, which recently hosted the Ryder Cup, are also within easy reach. There are well-regarded primary and secondary schooling in the area, which is supplemented by a range of private schools including Dollar Academy, Beaconhurst in Bridge of Allan and further private schools in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perthshire.
Woolcarder's Court was built circa 1860-80. This former woollen mill complex is a brick built mill building with red and white polychrome treatment. The glazing pattern originally 6-(round-headed) or 9-pane, altered on the principal blocks and was converted into a residential dwelling in 2003.

As such it has wonderful proportions, is positioned well for the beautiful views and has been maintained to a very high standard, having been recently redecorated throughout by the current owner, including the installation of a bespoke modern bathroom.
