The Hayloft is situated in a private semi-rural position with the village of Carnwath being just over 3 miles away and the town of Lanark being approximately 10 miles away, offering an excellent range of local amenities. The City Centre of Glasgow (about 33 miles) offers a full range of amenities including shopping, leisure and business facilities with regular mainline rail connections to Edinburgh and wider Scotland. Edinburgh is just over an hour’s drive away.
The property is only a short drive from the historic market towns of Biggar and Lanark, and is in the catchment area of Biggar High School. Biggar is well served with a range of independent local shops and cafes, while Lanark has all the facilities and amenities that would be expected in a larger town, including Tesco, Morrisons and Lidl, retail park and health centre. The local primary school is Auchengray, a newly built small rural school with a strong community ethos. Transport to both schools is provided by the local authority with pickup and drop off directly outside the property.
Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the historic 18-hole golf course at Lanark, and have easy access
to the Scottish Borders and Clyde Valley which provide many excellent walks including Tinto Hill,
and the Falls of Clyde and World Heritage Site at New Lanark. The property is ideal for those
who prefer a rural environment, but within easy reach of the major cities of both Edinburgh and
Glasgow. There are also excellent local train links just a short drive away, to Edinburgh (from
both Carstairs and Livingston) and to Glasgow (from Lanark). The Edinburgh City Bypass is only
a thirty-minute drive away, giving good access to East Central Scotland, while the M74 is only a
fifteen-minute journey, giving good access to Glasgow and the West of Scotland.
Although there is no fibre optic broadband to the property given its rural location, the current owners use a 4G router which provides reliable and fast internet access, enabling seamless working from home, including video calls as well as high quality access to streaming and other online services.
The Hayloft is situated within a steading conversion and comprises a detached two storey family house with an extension to the side, albeit it is linked to an adjoining house by the garage. The property is in a sought after location and is accessed via a private gravel driveway. The Hayloft is currently one large property but the accommodation is very flexible and a separate annex could be created with minimal work required.
