A charming, period country house set in the most enchanting and secluded private grounds. The policies at Balquhatstone House extend to approximately 16.3 acres and befit a property of its stature, with traditional gate lodge, walled kitchen garden and Victorian glasshouses. Accommodation Summary Balquhatstone House (Lot 1) Ground Floor: Reception Hall, Drawing Room, Morning Room, Dining Room, Study, Kitchen/ Breakfast Room, Pantry, Vase Store, Laundry, two Bathrooms, Cook's Bedroom, former Maid's Room and Store Room. First Floor: Landing, Master Bedroom with Dressing Room, four further Double Bedrooms, one with en-suite Bathroom and separate WC, Family Bathroom and Bedroom 6/Nursery. Billiard Room with adjoining Hobby Room and WC. Second Floor: Double Bedroom, Box Room and Attic Room. Exterior: Balquhatstone House stands within approximately 16.3 acres of private grounds, which comprise a well-balanced combination of landscaped gardens, mature woodland and paddock grazings. A pillared entrance with wrought iron gates provides access to the property, beyond which a red gravel driveway, flanked by grass verges, extends towards the house. Sheltered by the surrounding woodland, the gardens which bound the house are granted a genuine sense of privacy and have been landscaped in a traditional manner, with sweeping lawns, banks of rhododendrons and burgeoning herbaceous borders. They also feature an ornamental pond and a former bowling lawn, ideal for croquet and garden sports. Of particular note, a splendid walled kitchen garden lies to the East of the house. It retains former fruit and vegetable beds, a range of plantings including apple, cherry and plum, a stone-built gardener's bothy and the Victorian glasshouses, which produce grapes and figs. There are two paddocks to either side of the drive, which offer approximately 6 acres of grazing. The paddock to the west of the drive has been landscaped into a chip-and-putt golf hole with a green. The remaining ground is predominantly covered by mature mixed woodland. There is also a small amenity paddock to south east of the house, featuring a meandering burn and a former curling pond. Outbuildings: A traditional coach house, set around a courtyard, is appended to the west of Balquhatstone House. It offers a flexible and varied array of stone outbuildings, including a double garage, two large sheds, workshops and stores rooms, a traditional wash house and a loft. These could be suitable for conversion to provide ancillary accommodation, subject to acquiring the necessary consents. To the south west, a gated entrance and drive provide a direct approach through the grounds to the coach house courtyard. Within the woodland, there is also a detached double garage/boathouse of timber construction and the remains of a stone cottage. West Lodge (Lot 2) Ground Floor: Entrance Hall, Sitting Room, Kitchen Breakfast Room, two Double Bedrooms, Family Bathroom. Attic Room above. Exterior: The traditional stone-built gate lodge stands sentry at the main gates into Balquhatstone House and presides over its own private garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn and bordered by mature hedging, specimen shrubs and trees. There is also a parking area to the front of the property. Available as a whole. EPC - G
