A charming, period country house set in the most enchanting and secluded private grounds. The policies at Balquhatstone House extend to approximately 16 acres and befit a property of its stature, with traditional gate lodge, walled kitchen garden and Victorian glasshouses. Accommodation Summary 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.

Billiard Room with adjoining Hobby Room and WC. Second Floor: Double Bedroom, Box Room and Attic Room. Exterior: Balquhatstone House stands within approximately 16 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. EPC - G
