This is a unique opportunity to acquire a charming, thoughtfully extended and refurbished detached cottage, close to both Dunblane and Bridge of Allan. Set in beautiful and generous gardens, the house also offers a detached double garage and log store.
Created by the conversion of two Victorian cottages and subsequently extended, the property is deceptively spacious. The internal accommodation comprises of, on the ground floor, entrance vestibule, reception hallway with wc/cloakroom off, formal lounge, sitting room, substantial dining kitchen, utility room, three bedrooms (one of which benefits from an en-suite bathroom), an office and a family bathroom. On the upper level, accessed off a galleried landing, are two further double bedrooms.
The house sits in beautiful grounds extending to over 1 acre, with expansive lawns surrounded by mature trees, plus hedging and fencing to the front of the property. The large double garage sits at the end of a long tarmac driveway providing ample off-road parking and further benefits from electric up and over doors, plus internal and external log stores. Around the perimeter of the cottage are well-established shrub beds and an attractive patio.
Keirstone Cottage is set back from the Hill of Row road and is highly convenient for the neighbouring towns of Bridge of Allan and Dunblane, both of which offer a fine range of amenities including shops, cafes and restaurants. More extensive retail facilities can be found in the nearby historic city of Stirling. Local schooling is available at both primary and secondary level. The property is ideally located for those who commute, being within easy reach of the Keir roundabout giving access to the M9/A9, while both Bridge of Allan and Dunblane have main line railway stations with regular services to all major business centres in central Scotland.
