Access to Pencairn is via a shared tarmac driveway for two properties which has boundary hedging and wrought iron gates to a sweeping driveway which offers ample parking for at least four cars and leads to a garage with remote controlled door; greenhouse to side and a newly installed oil tank to the rear.  The property has been well maintained over the years by the current owners and includes a bespoke solid cherry-wood kitchen with oil-fired AGA, a newly installed modern shower room and new shower to the en-suite in 2016; double glazed windows throughout, a new oil-fired boiler and extensive insulation to the loft space.  Features of note include light and spacious rooms with ambient lighting, a splendid solid-fuel fireplace to the sitting room, a generous conservatory which requires a degree of repair and picture windows which enjoy lovely peaceful views from every aspect.  To the front of the property are steps with central pillars leading to a covered porch with double storm doors to a vestibule with windows either side and garden views.  Opaque glazed doors with side panels open to a wide and welcoming reception hall with space for furniture, wall-lighting and a storage cupboard and cloakroom; currently carpeted right through to the bedroom corridor, however there is quality hardwood flooring beneath.  The generous dual-aspect sitting room enjoys superb garden views and focal point solid-fuel feature fireplace with tiled hearth and wall lamps and shelved recess to side and door to an exceptionally large conservatory with ceramic tiled floor and superb garden views, making a most peaceful spot to relax to enjoy the garden’s interest and colour.  A door from the sitting room leads to a generous formal dining room with picture window, solid wood flooring, wall-lighting and room for furniture, which in turn leads to the kitchen which is ideal for entertaining.  The farmhouse style breakfasting-kitchen enjoys pleasant views to front, and is fitted with a range of cherrywood wall, base and display units with marble-effect worktops and breakfast bar and splendid oil-fuelled Aga with tiled splashback, pan rack and has space for an upright fridge-freezer. The adjacent utility is fitted with base units and storage cupboards, vinyl flooring and includes a free-standing electric cooker with room for an automatic washing machine/tumble dryer, and door to rear garden.  This room enjoys the most splendid open views across the surrounding countryside which lends itself to the potential of opening the kitchen/dining/utility room to form a large open-plan living space which would have spectacular views, subject to the relevant planning consent being obtained.  From the reception hall is a peaceful bedroom wing with three double bedrooms overlooking the garden grounds which wrap around the property.  The generous principle bedroom has built-in wardrobes and benefits from a separate dressing room with wardrobes and space for furniture, which in turn leads to an en-suite bathroom with white suite and chrome heated towel rail.  The second bedroom has a built-in wardrobe, bedroom three is currently used as a study and includes fixed shelving, and there is a modern shower room with wet-wall panelling, mains shower, chrome heated towel rail and vinyl flooring; and adjacent a very useful walk-in linen/storage room with fixed shelving.  Oil central heating is installed, all windows are double glazed and there is fresh tasteful decoration and ample storage throughout this generous property.   


Pencairn enjoys the most beautifully established garden grounds which are truly a gardener’s delight.  The family have carried out extensive landscaping and planting over the years and also created a splendid pond with waterfall and bridge, which attracts much wildlife throughout the year.  There is an array of specimen trees and shrubs, thoughtfully planted borders and neatly manicured lawns with shaped hedging which wraps completely around the property offering privacy and the most splendid panoramic views.  The sweeping gravelled quartz driveway to the front, has a large rockery and shaped lawn planted with ornamental trees and shrubs and a pea chipped path which meanders through to the beautifully secluded rear garden, with its mature flowering shrubs, orchard with plant covered trellis and planted borders, providing year-round interest and colour as well as a suntrap patio which leads to both the conservatory and sitting room. To the side of the driveway is the concealed sewage disposal plant, cleverly hidden behind screened hedging and you wouldn’t know it was even there, and to the far end of the drive, the owners installed a generous greenhouse which has raised bedding to the side and a timber garden shed and there is also an outdoor store and water tap.  

Oil fired central heating is installed, all windows are double glazed and there is ample storage and fresh decoration throughout.

This delightful and versatile family home will no doubt appeal to a wide variety of purchasers, given its presentation, prime peaceful location and panoramic views. Early viewing is very highly recommended.  Home Report valuation £375,000.
