Harper & Stone are privileged to present to the open market 2 Melville Place: a magnificent 4-bedroom Victorian home set within the former Spa Town of Bridge of Allan. This beautifully styled 2 storey upper conversion property boasts 4 bedrooms, substantial living space and gardens to the front, side/rear. Period features include cornicing, window shutters, deep moulded skirtings, panelled interior doors, stunning exposed stonework and a wrought iron balustrade, all capturing some of the attractive characteristics of this lovely home. Early viewing is highly advised as a strong level of interest is anticipated.

Entry to the property through the solid wooden storm door leads to the entrance vestibule with coat rack and roomy storage cupboard. A half turn staircase leads to the first floor landing which opens to the hallway via a striking glass panelled door with side glass panelling and a transom window, allowing a flow of natural light.
To the left is the open plan kitchen/dining room, which has been thoughtfully reconfigured and is presented beautifully. The Neptune wooden in-frame kitchen boasts an excellent selection of wall and base units in a Shaker style shell colour with complementary dark quartz work surfaces. Integrated Neff appliances include a five-ring induction hob, electric oven, combination oven, freezer, full height fridge, dishwasher, washer/dryer, wine fridge and double Belfast sink with Quooker tap. The matching centre island hosts further storage and a solid wooden surface along with seating offering a more informal option. The dining area is spacious and can comfortably seat 8/10 diners, with the Wiking log burner adding a cosy ambiance during the wintertime. Triple aspect windows allow plenty of natural light to flow into both areas and the pièce de resistance is the stunning exposed original stonework.
Returning to the hallway, on the right is the side facing formal lounge with sizable bay window, front facing window and Charnwood wood burning stove set within the original stone fireplace with contemporary surround. The unique cornicing and window shutters add to the appeal of this beautiful space alongside the muted tones of the décor.
Next on the right is the principal bedroom with ensuite bathroom. This is an extremely generously sized room with the bay window adding to the grandeurs of the space. The ensuite bathroom hosts a bath, over bath shower, pedestal sink, heated towel rail and WC and is fully tiled with laminate flooring. Bedroom 4 sits to the rear, again a good-sized double room currently utilised as a snug/office space. Completing the living area on this level is the family shower room which is rear facing. There is a large walk-in drench shower with contemporary wet walls, floating Vitra vanity sink with storage, storage cupboard housing the boiler and floating WC. Behind the heated towel rail, the brickwork has been revealed adding another lovely quality to the room.
A door leading off the main hallway opens to a small landing with under stair storage to a stairway to the upper level where bedrooms 2 and 3 are situated. Bedroom 2 is a good-sized double room with double fitted wardrobes and a lovely sitting area in front of the bay window. Two further Velux windows make it a lovely light space. It also hosts an ensuite shower room with walk-in shower, hand basin and WC. Completing the upper floor is Bedroom 3 with ensuite WC and handbasin.
Externally, there are private garden grounds to the front and side of the property bounded by stone walls, timber fences and established hedging. Off street parking is provided on the driveway to the side of the property. There is a garden room at the far end of the back garden set on a shaped paved patio. It has French doors and is equipped with electric, lighting, and a fridge, an ideal space for a home office for remote working, or could be set up as a garden bar. The gardens are well stocked with an assortment of mature trees, plants, various shrubs, raised beds and a lovely patio area perfect for outdoor entertaining. There are 2 sheds tucked away out of sight and a log store. This beautiful South facing private garden benefits from the sunshine all day and well into the evening and is a true oasis within the Village.
The current owners have significantly upgraded this beautiful home including reconfiguring the layout, opening up fireplaces and exposing areas of stonework. Ventrolla overhauled all the sash and case windows, providing draft proofing and a 5 year guarantee. No. 2 Melville Place is tastefully presented throughout, incorporating modern touches alongside the spectacular traditional features offering a fresh homely feel and once seen will leave a lasting impression. It has been and will continue to be a beautiful, happy family home.
The sale will include all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, window coverings, and integrated appliances where applicable. Any other items are to be by separate negotiation with the seller.
