Features & Description
Peacefully situated with scenic elevated views and easy access to Forfar’s central amenities, this four/five-bedroom detached family home offers versatile interiors with multiple living areas and bathrooms, generous south-facing gardens, and outstanding private parking including a double garage.
Lying just over a mile from the centre of Forfar, on its peaceful rural fringes with stunning far-reaching views, this four/five-bedroom, two-bathroom detached home also allows easy access to major road links connecting to the cities of Dundee, Perth, and Aberdeen, all within an hour. The executive family home, with tasteful modern interiors and numerous versatile living spaces, occupies a south-facing 0.8-acre plot featuring mature gardens, a paddock, a private driveway, and an attached double garage.
Behind the front door, an inviting reception hall introduces the airy proportions and attractive decorative finish on offer. Here can be found a WC cloakroom and plentiful storage. From the hall, double doors open into a dual-aspect living room bathed in natural light from a wide bay window framing the property’s scenic outlook. A charming period-inspired fireplace (with a living flame fire) brings homely character to this comfortably carpeted space. Also reached from the hall are three further reception areas catering for formal dining, home working, and family recreation, but easily adaptable to suit a family’s requirements, including a possible fifth bedroom.
The view-facing family room flows openly into an exceptionally bright dining kitchen - perfectly designed for casual family meals and year- round entertaining, with access to a south- facing terrace promising views as far as the eye can see. The impressive kitchen features an array of modern wood-toned cabinets, neatly integrated with a fridge, a double oven and microwave, a dishwasher, and a five-ring gas hob (with a feature hood) set into a central island. An adjoining coordinating utility room (providing handy external access) houses a semi-integrated fridge and tall freezer, with space and plumbing for laundry appliances.
Upstairs, a light and airy landing leads to four carpeted double bedrooms featuring incorporated wardrobes. In one bedroom, these can be found within a spacious dressing room adjoined by a useful store. The principal bedroom represents a luxurious suite with double mirrored wardrobes, a bright shower room, and country views that can be enjoyed from bed. Finally, a deluxe family bathroom includes a freestanding bathtub and separate shower. The home is kept warm and efficient by gas central heating and fully double-glazed tilt-and-turn windows.
Outside, to the front, lies a lawn with established shrubs and a generous paved driveway leading to an attached double garage. Handily, there is an electric vehicle charger as well. To the rear, a further lawned garden is neighboured by a paddock for animal husbandry or landscaping/ development potential.
Extras: All fitted floor and window coverings (except family room), light fittings, integrated kitchen goods, utility room fridge and freezer, and garden play structure are included in the sale.
