• Stunning traditional villa in immaculate semi-rural setting • Dating from 1886 • Changed hands only twice on open market • Conveniently positioned close by Aberfoyle village • Extensive garden grounds measuring just over ¾ of an acre • Exceedingly comfortable internal accommodation • Beautifully kept period detail • Nine principal apartments (plus dining kitchen/study) • Floor area of approx. 3,333 ft A truly enchanting stone-built villa of considerable proportion, Forest Hill House is set upon an extensive garden plot of just over ¾ of an acre and is situated just west of Aberfoyle village centre, on Lochard Road. Having changed hands just twice since its construction in the late 1800's, this really is a very rare opportunity to acquire a home that exudes abundant period charm. With only its original coach house attached to rear, the setting/positioning of the property affords a real sense of space and privacy, with an undeniable connection to the forestland/rolling countryside to be found from inside and externally. Immediate inspection will uncover the impressive stonework and dressings that make up the distinctive faade, all set under a pitched and slate roof and with an imposing bay projection to one side of the building. Accessed initially via a handy entrance porch, the internal accommodation beyond is best summarised as:- Ground Floor -Reception hallway with staircase and under-stair cloakroom WC -Bay windowed lounge with feature fireplace and original cornicework -Sitting room with inset woodburning stove laid to hardwood flooring -Formal dining room laid to hardwood flooring -Sizeable dining kitchen with AGA as focal point -Utility room off First Floor -Master bedroom with double aspect windows, views to the summit of Ben Lomond, wood burning stove -Dressing Room and master en-suite with over size shower enclosure, roll top bath and wood burning stove -Bedroom two with bay window and original fireplace -Bedroom three with double aspect window -Three-piece family bathroom -Study/home office Second Floor - Three further double bedrooms (all illuminated by Velux windows) - Shower room with walk in enclosure - Generous landing area Externally, the property is set upon a nicely manicured, incredibly private garden plot of considerable size, with expanses of lawn marrying well with sections of hard landscaping. The aforementioned backdrop of established forestland provides the most magical of settings. Off street parking is in abundance, with a sweeping driveway laid to stone chips affording space for a multitude of vehicles. Situation Foresthill House, as previously mentioned, enjoys a central location for access into the village of Aberfoyle, which offers local amenities, including shops that will, adequately, cater for every day needs and requirements. There is an excellent local primary school located on Lochard Road which has an excellent purpose-built nursery on site. Aberfoyle falls within the catchment for McLaren High School in Callander, for which a school bus leaves from the Village Centre, with the excellent facilities of Balfron High also within easy reach. Aberfoyle is well known for its natural scenic beauty, with Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park covering an area extending from Aberfoyle to Loch Lomond. Forest walks, riding and cycling trails are to be found nearby, with the village playpark and bicycle path providing great space for smaller children. Wild swimming, kayaking, and sailing all happen on Loch Ard (about 2 miles further out on Lochard Road). For those commuting for business, the A81 and A84 provide excellent links both to Glasgow and Stirling and, from here, to the main centres of business throughout the Central Belt of Scotland.
