A very spacious double upper conversion enjoying a fine and enviable setting on the corner of Fountain Road and Keir Street, in the sought after location of Bridge of Allan. Formed over three levels, the property has many period features associated with the Victorian era, such as cornicing and deep skirtings.
The internal accommodation, reached from its own private staircase to the rear of the property, comprises of entrance hallway, dining room, kitchen and, via a short staircase and landing, a spacious, bright lounge, three generous bedrooms and a shower room. On the second floor are two further bedrooms, one of which benefits from an en-suite bathroom. Warmth is provided by gas central heating and a mix of double and secondary glazing, with double -glazed Velux windows.
Externally there is an extensive private garden, mostly laid to lawn at the front with planted beds, shrubs and mature trees. This leads to the patio courtyard whose high walls afford the area a great deal of privacy and, being west-facing, benefits from afternoon and evening sun. A further gate leads to a private driveway providing off-road parking on Keir Street.
The property is located in the heart of Bridge of Allan. The thriving former spa resort has a fine range of shops, cafes and restaurants, with more extensive shopping facilities being available in nearby Stirling. There is local schooling at nursery and primary level, with secondary schooling at Wallace High in neighbouring Causewayhead. The independent sector is well provided for, with Beaconhurst in the town itself and other independent schools in the area including Dollar and Morrison's Academy. The town also benefits from its proximity to Stirling University, many of whose sporting facilities are available to the public, as well as a local golf course and sports club. In addition there are plentiful open spaces and woodland walks.
Bridge of Allan is well positioned for travel to all major towns and cities in central Scotland. The M9 motorway is close by, as is the A9 which gives quick access to Perth. The international airports of Glasgow and Edinburgh are within easy reach by road and the main line railway station in Bridge of Allan has regular services to both cities.
