6 bedroom cottage for sale
Hillview Cottage is a large family home in a rural setting, which was converted and extended from existing 18th century tied cottages in 1963 and retains some of the character of the original buildings with a bit more comfort.
The property benefits from six ensuite double bedrooms, and a large lounge with views across farmland to the Gargunnock hills.
There is ample parking to the front, with mature flower beds and a large area of maintained lawn.
From the front door, you are welcomed into a reception lounge with open fire place, guest cloakroom, access to the two wings of the house and a dining kitchen.
The kitchen has views over the rear garden to fields and woodland, access to the utility room/store with central heating boiler and a wash sink and to the rear garden.
The principal lounge is in the old wing of the property and is currently used as a dining lounge.
With open raftered ceiling, large stone fireplace with stove and rural views, the lounge offers a spacious informal family space.
The master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with 5ft corner bath, has access to the sun lounge and the single bedroom.
There is storage available in the utility room, the guest cloakroom, the printer cupboard and the linen store. The printer cupboard houses the pressurised water tank which effectively makes 5 of the showers power showers.
