Harper & Stone are delighted to have the opportunity to be marketing Old West Manse, 2 Henderson Place in Dollar. This substantial Victorian detached family home is positioned in a quiet enclave in Henderson Place, offering flexible and plentiful family living space with an abundance of charm.
Old West Manse was built in circa 1852 and its importance has been categorised as a Grade C Listing. Although having been adapted internally throughout the years, many of the original features and timeless charm remain. The original cornicing has been retained throughout and adds endless character to the apartments, which boast high ceilings and add to the impression of volume of space.
On approach to the property, the driveway is positioned to the right of Henderson Place. There are double wrought iron gates offering access to the drive with parking for several cars and leading to the detached double garage.
An impressive original door is the first feature that captivates you upon entry. There is a generous entrance vestibule, with coat storage, leading to an inner doorway opening in to the main reception hallway. The hallway is impressive whilst welcoming, boasting a staircase with original balustrade and mahogany railing. It should be noted that throughout the property the original cornicing has been retained and adds to the overall elegance of Old West Manse.
To the left of the hallway there is a large formal dining room. The space can comfortably accommodate a 10-12 seater dining table without feeling restricted. The multi-pane East facing window will bring the morning sun in to this room.
Directly opposite the dining room off the hallway is a large drawing room, with a focal point fireplace which is in working order. The vast bay window offers spectacular view of the garden areas and Ochil Hills.
Returning to the hall and moving towards the rear of the ground floor, there is a sitting room with internal doors leading through to a sizable conservatory. The conservatory boasts a peaceful viewpoint of the garden and terraced area. The sitting room also has a working gas fireplace with wooden mantle and cast iron fire insert. These rooms are, of course, multi-functional and flexible according to desired use.
The kitchen is a quaint square room, which feels welcoming and inviting, and provides an abundance of wall and base units. Appliance space includes a dishwasher, refrigerator, and large Rangemaster cooker with five-ring hob. The window offers an outlook to the side of the property.
Proceeding to the back hallway there is a large utility room with further wall and base units and space for washing machine and tumble dryer.
Leading off the utility room is the former double garage, which is currently utilised as a snooker room and could be easily adapted to use as an alternative space if required.
Returning to the back hall there is a shower room with a shower cubicle, wash hand basin and WC. In addition to the living area on the ground floor, there are three large storage cupboards, one of them being located under stair to maximise space.
To complete the ground floor is Bedroom 5/Office. This is a generous room located to the rear of the property, which has been cleverly adapted with a built-in loft style bunk bed, which can easily be dismantled to return it to its original space. Architectural plans have been drawn for the possibility of converting this area into a separate Granny Annex with it’s own private entrance.
Access to the first floor is by way of the charming staircase as previously described. The mid-landing boasts a large multi-pane window, allowing an abundance of light to flow through. The upper landing gives access to all four principle bedrooms.
The master bedroom is a large room with considerably sized bay window overlooking the West garden views. There is a plentiful range of fitted wardrobes in the dressing area that have been designed to keep in theme of the style of the property. Finally, there is an en suite shower room with wash hand basin and WC.
Across the hall from the master is bedroom two, again a generous double bedroom with a very large walk in wardrobe. The window gives a view to the South of the property.
Bedrooms three and four are further double bedrooms with an outlook to the South and West, respectively, and situated at the rear of the property.
The upper landing provides a large linen cupboard, which with some consideration and planning could be adapted in to an en suite to bedroom two. The partially floored loft is also accessed in front of this linen cupboard through a ceiling hatch with pull-down Ramsay ladder and is partially floored.
Completing the first floor is the family bathroom, which is very spacious and provides an over bath shower with solid wood panelling, a wash hand basin and WC. The large multi-pane window brightens this room and has views North to the Ochil Hills.
