Harper & Stone are delighted to offer to the market this beautiful, character property situated in Dollarbeg Castle. The Old Keeper's Cottage forms a wing of the castle and occupies two floors with a spiral staircase in the turret to the first floor.
The ground floor comprises a spacious dining kitchen, lounge and bedroom/further reception room with a glazed door out to a small patio area. There is also a convenient WC on this level. The level of finish throughout the property is high, with quality appliances and finishes. The windows are double glazed timber sash and casement with deep window sills. Flooring is mainly solid wood with the bedrooms on the first floor carpeted and the kitchen and bathrooms tiled.
Upon entry to the property through the private door, there is a small entrance vestibule with space for outdoor wear. The carpeted spiral staircase rises to the first floor and a glazed door leads to the inner hall on the ground floor. All rooms on the ground floor are then accessed off the hallway through solid oak doors.
The kitchen occupies the corner of the building and includes dual aspect windows over the entrance and car park. There is a good range of base and wall units in wood with granite worktops. Integrated appliances include Siemens oven, Bosch 5-burner stainless steel hob and extractor, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher. There is ample space for a dining table.
The lounge is a spacious room with views to the castle grounds. Downlights provide further lighting in this already naturally light room. Bedroom 3, or what could be utilised as a further reception room, is another generous room with two pretty windows towards the ceiling. A glazed door leads out to a patio area which would be lovely for evening dining in the summer months.
Back to the internal hallway is a convenient WC, tiled in neutral tones and comprising a white suite of wash hand basin with vanity mirror and WC. A chrome heated towel rail completes the room. A generous cupboard is located on this floor housing the electricity meter and provides ample space for cleaning appliances.
Up the carpeted spiral staircase to the first floor there are two further double bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The first floor hallway can be divided giving privacy to the two bedrooms, allowing the master to have the family bathroom as an en suite and bedroom 2 with its own en suite. The master has beautiful views over the grounds of the castle and has ample space for bedroom furniture. The family bathroom has both a large bathtub and a separate shower cubicle with power shower within. There is shelving for towels and toiletries and a large walk-in cupboard with shelving for further storage.
Bedroom 2 is a pretty room with dual aspect windows and fitted double wardrobe, which is shelved and railed. The en suite is a convenient space with a white suite comprising WC and vanity sink. There is a good sized shower cubicle again with power shower.
Two further cupboards complete this floor, housing the boiler and hot water tank. The boiler was replaced in 2014 and was chosen for its reliability as the owners at that time needed a low maintenance option when they were not living in the property.
Externally there is ample parking directly at the property. Residents have use of the private grounds surrounding the castle and can enjoy woodland walks and privacy.
There is an alarm system in the property which has been regularly serviced and maintained. Sky TV is accessible via a communal dish. There is also a large loft in the property with a substantial boarded area.
A factor maintains the grounds and any communal areas, water, waste and buildings maintenance and insurance are also covered by an approximate fee of £95.00 per month. Any additional optional works are not included in the factor and subject to agreement and approval by owners.
This is a fantastic property in a desirable building within the beautiful historic Dollarbeg Castle. Only a few minutes’ drive in to the village of Dollar and with the Dollar Academy school bus stop close by it is close to amenities while retaining a feeling of privacy and remoteness.
