Balerno 9, Townhead, Auchterarder, PH3 1AHProperty ID: 166244
CLOSING DATE FRIDAY 9TH APRIL AT 12 NOON. With a façade embellished with ornate rose coloured stone work, this beautiful, quirky, substantial semi-detached property with large rear garden is the perfect family home for all period property lovers.
Situated at the heart of town centre, the property is just a few minutes’ walk from all amenities. The proximity of the Auchterarder and Gleneagles golf courses and fast access to the motorway network, make this property ideal for anyone seeking a quieter life whilst still easily able to access the Central Belt and beyond.
Boasting many original features such as ornate ceiling coving, original 4 panel wood doors and window surrounds, polished original wood floors throughout, Victorian servants’ bells, antique cast iron and tiled fireplaces, antique wall and ceiling lights, original door locks, ornate plasterwork and a stunning curved staircase with wrought iron balustrade, the property is already spacious and could still be extended to further increase space.
The property has 4 large reception rooms (2 of which have been used as bedrooms (1 with a shower unit & washroom with WC) by the current owners) and a kitchen on the ground floor, with 2 further bedrooms (both with dressing rooms) and a bathroom on the 1st floor.
Externally a large, private rear garden with sunken terrace, lawn, mature shrubs & trees, a large shed and greenhouse are accessed via French windows from the rear room, a door from the kitchen and from the lane at the side of the house which lends itself to the possibility of creating off street rear parking.
The interior of the property has been well maintained over the years, resulting in comfortable home which would nonetheless benefit from some repair and redecoration. With time and imagination however, this fascinating house could be transformed into a contemporary home complemented by its antique architectural adornments.
