Substantial country home with excellent outbuildings in accessible location.
Bothwellpark Farm Cottage is an attractive former dairy farm and steading offering truly adaptable accommodation with outbuildings which could be utilised for equestrian purposes if desired. The property has been lovingly renovated throughout and in its current configuration offers five or six bedrooms and no fewer than three reception rooms along with a stunning kitchen and breakfast room complete with pantry.
The home is constructed of red sandstone under a tiled roof with the main living accommodation extending to 4570 sq ft excluding the outbuildings. The property is approached by a long driveway and accessed by electric wrought iron gates. The beautiful grounds extend to about an acre and comprise two expansive lawns, impressive pond with water feature and plenty of parking for numerous vehicles externally and a four-car garage offering internal storage.
Internally Bothwellpark Farm Cottage has been refurbished in a traditional farmhouse style and is presented to an excellent standard with accommodation spread over two levels.
The ground floor begins within the original Victorian portion of the house and displays many of the features that you would expect from the period. The main hallway has an oak turned staircase leading to the first floor, and a nicely proportioned home office and guest bedroom with en suite shower room are located off the hallway; both rooms have intricate cornicing and ceiling roses and the office benefits from a fireplace. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all nicely proportioned with one of the bedrooms benefiting from eaves storage, and a well-appointed family bathroom.
Downstairs, continuing to the end of the hallway there is a handy utility room and WC with door leading out into the rear garden. Double archways open into the beautiful kitchen and breakfast area with pantry that has an open plan feel and flows into the substantial sitting room. The kitchen is expertly designed and well equipped with an induction hob including countertop extraction, built in appliances, a number of wall and floor mounted storage options, breakfast bar and plenty of space for dining. Two sets of French doors open onto an expansive raised deck that overlooks the garden.
The dining room is located off the kitchen and has views of the garden, fireplace and space to comfortably seat 10+ people at the table. From the kitchen the elegant sitting room with sliding door offers a fantastic space to entertain or relax. Benefits include a built in sound system, log burning stove two sets of French doors out onto the deck and garden and a door leading to the rear garden and another raised deck.
Located at the far end of the property is the principal suite with a spacious bedroom, dressing room and en suite bathroom, another set of French doors leading out to the garden and decked terrace. The general layout of this home is extremely versatile.
Externally Bothwellpark Farm Cottage is enclosed by mature gardens which are mainly laid to lawn; the house has been designed to take full advantage of this with the main lawn and pond creating a feature and focal point to be viewed from the main deck and reception rooms. On the opposite side of the house is another expanse of lawn ideal for recreational purposes.
The outbuildings are superb and include a four-car garage with converted upper floor, separate workshop with store room that could easily be altered to create a stable with excellent storage above. A newly installed leisure facility with steam room, sauna, hot tub and shower is again ideally positioned to take advantage of the garden and offers the perfect place to relax and recharge.
