DESCRIPTION Looking for your rural idyll? Then look no further! This is a unique opportunity to purchase a traditional south facing Country Cottage with an adjacent Building Plot, both set within an Acre of well kept, beautifully landscaped grounds. To be sold as a whole.

An open archway and laminate flooring seamlessly link through, to the Sitting Room. The focal point of the Sitting Room is the Fireplace with Firebox 8KW Multifuel Stove, Scottish Yew over mantle, tiled fire back and natural slate hearth. This south facing Sitting Room benefits from a high degree of natural light supplied by a double window arrangement to the front of the property.
An L shaped Reception Hall leads to a traditional formal Entrance Vestibule, the Family Shower-Room and both Double Bedrooms. Access to the part boarded Attic area is also available in the Reception Hall. The Master Bedroom carpet has recently been replaced (Summer 2018) and an extensive range of Sharps fitted Bedroom furniture provides ample storage space. The Master Bedroom enjoys lovely south facing garden views.
The Family Shower-Room has a low-level WC, wash hand basin within fitted vanity furniture and a Shower enclosure which is suitable for disabled use, with Mira Zest shower.
Bedroom 2 is a rear facing double Bedroom with driftwood laminate flooring and window to the rear garden.

Outbuildings include a large timber garage with light, power and workshop area, a garden shed, glass greenhouse, large covered car port, coal bunker, two log stores and a hen house.
Key to the sale of this property is the adjacent Building Plot.

Access to the Plot has already been formed in preparation for the creation of a separate two car driveway. Any proposed property would have private vehicular access and would benefit from a rural outlook and impressive views to the Ochil Hills.
Further details relating to the Building Plot are available from our Office.
