    Features & Description

    Property Description

    Representing an outstanding family home in an enviable, elevated position, with panoramic, breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside, this extensive detached villa is set within sprawling some 3.5 acres and includes a paddock. The property incorporates five/six bedrooms, generous living space, and five bathrooms, plus an integral large double garage, and is elegantly-presented with mostly neutral interiors. The home is located in a quiet corner of a small, exclusive development on the fringes of Forfar, offering a sought-after, semi-rural lifestyle with the conveniences and amenities of a large town close to hand. The property is approached via a sweeping, gated driveway and a lasting impression is made from the outset. The sheltered front door opens into a practical entrance vestibule, leading through to a hall with built-in storage and a cloakroom.

    The hallway flows openly into the extensive reception space on the right, consisting of a dining area with an adjoining lounge, and a semi-separate living room.

    The dining area can comfortably accommodate an eight-seater table and additional furniture, whilst the lounge offers a relaxed space with swathes of glass allowing natural light to stream in and framing breath-taking, panoramic views of the countryside. The living room is accessed from the dining area via a curved archway, and provides a more formal reception area with flexibility for endless furniture configurations. A recently-installed multi-fuel stove is nestled within a fireplace, an ideal focal point around which furniture can be arranged, and three sets of patio doors open onto a wraparound deck and patio perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining with family and friends during the warmer months.

    The kitchen is conveniently connected to the dining area and offers space for a further casual dining table and chairs, set next to doors opening onto the rear garden. The airy, country-style kitchen is well-appointed with a selection of cream-coloured cabinetry, including a central island, ample workspace, and splashback tiling. A larder fridge is integrated, whilst an adjoining, fitted utility room (with external access), houses an additional built-in fridge and a washing machine.

    Returning back to the hall, you reach four bedrooms, with one currently being utilised as a home office, highlighting the versatility of the home and perfect for the modern lifestyle. The principal bedroom occupies an impressive footprint and enjoys direct access to the garden, a built-in wardrobe, and a contemporary en-suite comprising a deluxe walk-in shower, a WC-suite, and a towel radiator. The remaining two bedrooms are both also accompanied by en-suite shower rooms. The final bedroom is located above the garage (accessed via stairs from the hall) and would be perfect as a self-contained suite for live-in relatives, guests, or older children, and encompasses a large sleeping area (enjoying the home's outstanding views), a dressing area, and a four-piece en-suite bathroom. A family room (reached via a separate staircase from the hall) completes the accommodation and could be used as an extra living space or, owing to its en-suite shower room, an additional bedroom. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.

    Externally, the property is set in sprawling garden grounds extending to some 3.5 acres, beautifully maintained and featuring expansive, manicured lawns, a leafy border of mature trees and hedges, and low-maintenance seating areas. The grounds also include a paddock with farm-size gated access to the external pathways and fields, a large timber workshop, and a timber garden shed, offering useful outdoor storage space. An integral very large double garage (with electric doors and a WC) and a multi- car driveway provide ample private parking.

    Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, selected light fittings, integrated fridges, and washing machine will be included in the sale.
