East Wing, dating back to the 17th century, is a characterful wing of the former Scots House set within idyllic gardens and grounds extending to approximately 5 acres. The property has undergone various works by the current owners, creating a tasteful interior with a wealth of charm throughout. The layout of the accommodation enables versatile living suited to modern day requirements.
The naturally bright entrance hall is a welcoming introduction to East Wing, with a galleried landing adding to the appeal. The drawing room sits off the entrance hall offering generous proportions, enhanced by the high ceiling with attractive cornicing and ceiling rose. A stunning fireplace houses a solid fuel burning stove with impressive sandstone surround and is a real focal point of this splendid room. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with country-style oak units with complementary granite worktops and a tiled splashback. Integral appliances include a wine cooler, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, induction hob, double oven and a one and a half bowl sink. A central island makes an ideal breakfast bar whilst two stables doors give access to the gardens to the front and courtyard to the side of the house. The utility room extends the storage space of the kitchen whilst also providing plumbing for a washing machine. A useful downstairs shower room sits adjacent with the additional benefit of a sauna.
To the opposite end of the property is a further reception room, adding to the versatile nature of the accommodation, which could lend itself to use as an annexe. This generous sitting room is fitted with bookshelves and has delightful French doors leading to the garden. A further studio room is located off the sitting room, ideally suited to use as a study, therapy room or bedroom, with shower room adjacent.
Stairs lead from the entrance hall up to the interesting galleried landing which links the bedroom accommodation. The master bedroom suite offers a good sized bedroom with en-suite comprising a bath, wash hand basin and WC. The main landing gives access to the remaining three double bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms offer separate en-suite rooms, one fitted with a shower cubicle and the other with a corner spa bath. The third bedroom has a shower and wash basin to one corner, along with fitted wardrobes.
The impressive gardens and grounds are a truly exceptional feature of this magnificent property and extend to around 5 acres. The main driveway leads through the grounds to the front of the property with extensive areas laid to lawn, interspersed with mature trees as well as a charming pond with fountain. The driveway continues round the side of the property and leads to the double garage and further gardens at the rear. A delightful patio adjoins the house with a beautiful outlook over the well-kept garden.
Three stables sit to the eastern boundary of the property with a double garage and charming summer house.
