A truly remarkable purpose built Canadian cedar lodge house.
Kirkfield Gardens offers an enviable rural setting with stunning views over the countryside and the Clyde Valley. The property itself is situated north of Biggar within the Kirkfieldbank district. The desirable village commands a prime position within the Clyde Valley, long known as 'the fruit bowl' of west central Scotland, spawning a number of cottage industries within the neighbouring towns of Carluke and Lanark. Lanark provides secondary schooling and the private Hamilton College is readily accessible via the M74. Glasgow provides a range of private schools and universities. Lanark, perhaps the best known town within the Clyde Valley, provides a broad range of shops, a supermarket, banks, a selection of restaurants and a variety of sports and recreational facilities including the Lanark Golf Club which boasts a championship standard 18 hole golf course. New Lanark, internationally recognised as a World Heritage Site, is a beautifully restored 18th century cotton mill village close to the Falls of Clyde and is still a working community, attracting visitors from all points of the compass.
Kirkfield Gardens is truly unique and offers not only an idyllic and tranquil setting but also extremely flexible living space. Finished to the highest of standards it is a remarkable purpose built Canadian cedar lodge. The property benefits from around 2.3 acres of grounds and is completely private.
