Harper & Stone are absolutely delighted to bring to the market West Cottage, a beautiful family home. The accommodation is all set out at ground level. West Cottage lies 4 miles from the quaint town of Dollar in a totally private location set back from the road. As you turn off the A91 a maintained shared driveway takes you to this hidden gem nestled at the foot of the stunning Ochil Hills.
Entry through the front door leads to a light, bright hallway. Off the hallway to the left is a formal lounge with wood burning stove, feature windows, exposed beams and a sliding door leading to the patio area outside. Next to the lounge is a door housing a delightful storage space, currently used for displaying a variety of glassware.
Also leading from the hallway is a shower room with wash hand basin and WC. This then takes you to a comfortable open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area with a wood burning stove. The kitchen area comprises a centre island, the neutral wall and base units have been thoughtfully fitted to maximise the space. There is a four-burner induction hob, double oven and appliance space for a dishwasher. The dining area is next to the sitting area, which has an original whitewashed stone wall and traditional fireplace, making one yearn for frosty evenings in front of the flames!
Off the kitchen is a generous utility/boot room with space for two appliances, plenty of cupboard space in white matt units with laminated worktops. The boiler is also situated in the utility room along with multiple coat hooks. A door leads to the exterior of the property and a path wraps around the house to the front.
A doorway from the sitting area leads to the back hallway, again a light, bright passage with picturesque windows optimising stunning views of the countryside. At the far end of this hallway is the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and panoramic views.
Next to the master bedroom is the family bathroom, comprising of a pastel coloured suite, bath, wash hand basin and WC. There is traditional wood panelling which covers approximately one third of the wall.
The next door leads to bedroom 3 which is currently used as a study. Then the last door leads to the second bedroom, a very pretty, great sized double room.
Externally the property is surrounded with beautiful, mature, well maintained gardens. In the front garden is a pond and at the far end is a gate leading to wonderful walks in the Ochil Hills and surrounding nature trails. There are also three loose boxes with electric power and a garden shed. The gravelled area outside the back door has a seating area to make the most of watching the birds and other wildlife who frequently visit the current owners. There is a top of the range green house, and a poly tunnel included in the sale. The garden beyond the level of the poly tunnel extends down to the road and this area currently is designed to promote natural growth to encourage butterflies, bees, and a variety of wild birds. There is also a large drive able to accommodate several cars.
The property runs an oil-fired central heating system which is generally filled twice yearly. The septic tank is emptied biannually by the Council on a contract arrangement.
We strongly recommend a viewing of this delightful home and are convinced that you will fall in love with its charm, warmth and character.
The sale will include all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, apart from the chandelier in the formal lounge, window blinds and integrated appliances.
