King’s Park is within walking distance and is one of Stirling’s most used recreational areas, there is a floodlit skate and BMX park, play area, outdoor gym, tennis courts, playing fields, piece of mind garden and much more. There are well-regarded schools to both primary and secondary levels and Stirling University has a superb reputation for excellence and a fabulous campus. The City is equidistant to Glasgow and Edinburgh and is served by a regular bus and rail service and the M9 allows swift and effective travel in and around the central belt.
Internally the property is more spacious than the frontage would suggest and retains many period features including ornate cornicing, exposed narrow floorboards in the lounge, working fireplace, stain glass windows and upper landing with double pitched skylight. The accommodation is commodious, versatile and extends to vestibule, grand entrance hallway, lovely lounge, dining room, breakfasting kitchen, sitting room, office, downstairs w/c, pantry, two store rooms, utility and playroom with access to the hay loft which is currently utilised as a games room. Upstairs the traditional staircase is illuminated by the pitched skylight and leads to the large family bathroom on the half landing, four bedrooms and en-suite bathroom with shower and spa bath. The property further benefits from gas central heating, under floor heating in the en-suite, security lighting and alarm. Externally the property features substantial gardens. To the front there is a stone chipped driveway that extends to the rear of the property, sloped flower beds. To the rear, the Victorian green house is an architecturally impressive structure and sets the scene for the walled garden that lies beyond. There is a gently sloping lawn area with low level hedges, bushes and shrubbery. To the side of the house is a very large triple garage which one can imagine being originally utilised as stables. This area, along with the hayloft/games room could be easy converted subject to planning consent being granted. There is a monobloc and decking area with views over the garden and beyond.
