Property description

Garden Cottage lies in an idyllic unique location Set within extensive walled gardens, this three bedroom detached cottage is ideally placed for those looking for a quiet, self sufficient lifestyle. Formerly the residence of the head gardener for Letterfourie Estate, Garden Cottage is breathtakingly beautiful. The main feature is the stunning 18th Century Orangery with exquisite doors and French windows opening to the terrace and providing views over the gardens.

Entered via a hardwood exterior door with glazed panels, the hallway features a natural wood staircase leading to the upper hall. With windows to both the front and rear, the lounge would be equally well suited to use as a third bedroom. The focal point of the room is the wood burner with tiled hearth and high level wooden surround. Providing an ideal office or library, the room adjacent to the lounge has a window overlooking the side of the property. Centrally set, the utility area is fitted with a base and wall units, stainless steel sink and drainer, there is also space for a washing machine and storage below the staircase. Fitted with a white suite incorporating a bath, wash hand basin, wc and bidet, the spacious bathroom also has lovely views over the secluded rear garden. With windows to the front of the property, the generously proportioned dining kitchen is fitted with a range of base and wall units incorporating roll front work surfaces which together provide excellent storage and preparation areas. The oil fired Rayburn is the main focal point of this room which also features wood linings. The kitchen leads to the rear hall which benefits from a large pantry cupboard and a shower room fitted with wc, wash hand basin and shower. Both the hallway and shower room have views to the rear.

Accessed from the kitchen, the centrepiece of Garden Cottage is the stunning Orangery which features truly magnificent traditional doors and windows. Ideal for use as a magnificent sitting room, the floor is laid with thick sandstone tiles traditionally used for absorbing heat to maintain the temperature. Moving through to the large studio, this versatile area has its own exterior door and several windows allowing super natural light. A raised wooden platform with ladder is ideal for storage or children’s bedroom loft/play area.

On the upper floor of the cottage, there is a roof window which fills the hallway with superb natural light, a large walk-in cupboard provides excellent additional storage. There are also two large double bedrooms which are tastefully decorated and have windows with deep display sills enjoying splendid views over the garden and beyond. Both bedrooms also each have a hatch to the loft.

Outside, to the front of property there is a parking area and detached garage. Also accessed from the front of the property is the exceptionally large garage/workshop which has a door leading to the enclosed walled garden. This outstanding space benefits from power and light.

The walled garden extends to approximately 2 acres. The main garden is separated into a kitchen garden area which has a large polytunnel as well as space for outdoor vegetable and fruit growing. This area could be developed further to provide the owner with a more self sufficient lifestyle. The remainder of the garden is mainly laid to lawn and stocked with a variety of mature shrubs and trees.
