The historic city of Stirling is some 8 miles distant and offers an extensive range of national and independent retailers as well as a range of professional services. Stirlingshire and the neighbouring county of North Lanarkshire provide a wonderful setting for the property and ample opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. The property is located close to the scenic Carron Valley, with the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park being a short drive to the west offering world renowned scenery and excellent opportunities for hacking, hill walking, along with other rural activities such as pony trekking, mountain biking, fishing and shooting. The development of the Medieval Duncarron Village is within easy reach. There is a hotel and public house within a short driving distance, aswell as Fintry village for Culcreuch Castle Hotel, Fintry Inn (ceilidh and folk nights as well as quiz evenings), a theatre group and a sports centre.

DESCRIPTION: 1 Croftoot Farm is a two storey semi-detached stone built steading conversion lying under a slate roof. The property is accessed through a secure entry with electric gates leading to a shared driveway. This exclusive steading development is surrounded by paddocks and woodlands providing a peaceful and most private setting for these equestrian properties. The front entrance overlooks the private gardens with views beyond to the paddock, arena and stables belonging to this property. The gardens are easily maintained and are mostly laid to lawn with a generous patio ideal for alfresco dining. The gardens to the side are paved and currently used as a drying green and the garden to the rear forms a communal courtyard with a raised and sheltered water feature with goldfish, a wonderful space for evening drinks or socialising with the neighbours. Externally there is also a log store and most useful detached garage with an up and over door, lighting and power.

Internally, the property is in move-in order throughout and has been tastefully refurbished and decorated throughout by the current owners. Of particular note is the expansive living room with a feature woodburning stove, sourced from France (Invicta Poele Rustica 12 W), pitched ceiling, Velux windows and panoramic views over the paddock to the front and countryside beyond. The shaker style kitchen is very much in keeping with this rural property and has fully fitted floor and wall units, integrated double ovens, American fridge freezer, integrated dishwasher and a double Belfast sink with a view over the courtyard. The ground floor has solid wood flooring throughout, a cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin, storage cupboards and a ground floor bedroom with an en-suite shower room, kitchen, living room and utility room all accessed from a generous central hallway.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor, the Master Bedroom is of particular note with a double aspect and en-suite shower room, one of the four bathrooms in this property. It is worth noting that there is plentiful storage at this property on both levels and a hatch leading to a roof void that could be floored for additional storage.
