Harper & Stone are pleased to have the opportunity to market the charming Strathdevon House in Dollar. This 7-bedroom detached Victorian family home is positioned on 1.5 acres of beautifully maintained gardens and woodland grounds at the foot of the Ochil Hills and provides privacy while only being a few minutes’ walk from the conveniences of the centre of Dollar. The property is C-Listed with Historic Scotland.
The property is set out over three levels as follows:
Upon entry to the property through an oversized solid wood front door, the main reception hall gives the feeling of elegance and propriety. To the left is the drawing room, or formal lounge, with an eye-catching stunning bay window. This South-facing room with large windows allows a flow of natural light and provides a warmth to the décor, along with the solid fuel fireplace.
Adjacent to the formal lounge is the study, however would also be useful as a single bedroom. There is an en suite providing wash hand basin with vanity unit and WC and has the potential for a shower to be added if desired.
Opposite the drawing room is the sitting room, again South- facing and bright. There is another solid fuel fireplace in this room. It should be highlighted that the original cornicing and working shutters have been beautifully maintained throughout and the high ceilings create an abundance of space.
Adjacent to the sitting room is the dining room, which is a very large room and provides ample storage. A window to the side showcases the garden and patio area. Off the dining room is the kitchen, which provides a range of solid wood wall and base units, as well as an AGA. Appliances include an integrated fridge/freezer with space for additional appliances. There is plenty of room for a breakfast table and French double doors lead to the patio and decking areas located at the East side of the property. The views are stunning, and this sitting area captures the sun for most of the day.
Off the kitchen there is a good-sized utility room with large utility sinks and space for additional appliances. One of the back doors is located here.
From the kitchen a door leads to the games room, which is a bright and spacious area. This thoughtful extension also provides private guest quarters with a shower room and a stair to the guest bedroom.
An elegant half turn staircase leads to the first floor where there are four large bedrooms, a family bathroom and a deep cupboard. The master bedroom is a spacious and bright room, with a large bay window facing to the South. The family bathroom is accessible from a door off the master as well as from the landing, creating an en suite/Jack & Jill layout. The bathroom comprises a shower unit, freestanding claw-foot bath, wash hand basin, WC and bidet.
Bedrooms 2 & 3 on this level each have their own integrated shower unit and wash hand basin, as the property formerly was run as a bed and breakfast and some of these facilities have been retained. Bedroom 4 is also a generous room and is South facing.
The top floor provides a large landing and two further double bedrooms. The landing is large enough to adapt with an additional bathroom if desired.
Heating is provided by way of gas central heating and there is a private water supply to the property. The private water supply could be easily connected to the mains system, as there is an access point at the top of the garden.
Surrounding the property are well maintained, mature garden grounds. There are approximately 0.75 acres to the front and 0.75 acres to the rear. The rear garden area also includes a woodland area where some children’s play facilities have been added gradually. An additional benefit of the property is the large amount of parking available as well as the single garage. There is also vehicle access from Back Road directly to the property.
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.
