Blythswood, 21, Rosebank Lane, Forfar, DD8 2BEProperty ID: 171072
CLOSING DATE ON THURSDAY 23RD SEPTEBMER AT 12NOON Nestled between fields and homes and in an imposing position at the end of quiet cul-de-sac, this lovely 3 bedroom detached Victorian stone villa with surround garden, private parking and garage with integrated workshop, is a delight to behold.
In excellent condition and with only a small amount of superficial change required, the property is wonderfully spacious, full of character and light, brimming with original features, high quality fixtures and fittings and suitable for a variety of households.
Within walking distance of the centre of the lively traditional market town, the property has a walled block work drive with stone steps leading up to the very attractive front garden, filled with mature shrubs, trees and even a small pond. A wrought iron gate at the side opens into the very tranquil enclosed back garden – set on 2 levels and with a flagged patio with rear entry to the garage, Victorian edging stones, stone wall and a peaceful view of the fields and ancient cemetery.
The interior with its quarry tiled vestibule and original internal etched glass door are a gracious entrance into this elegant home. Benefiting from the original doors, ornate ceiling cornicing and period high ceilings, double glazed timber windows in the large original openings, the property provides 2 large reception rooms. These both with shelved alcoves and windows looking out to the front garden, the larger of the two rooms opens into another room (study) with outside door, windows to the side and a cloakroom with WC.
At the end of the wide hall, past a large under stairs cupboard, is the spacious kitchen dining room. Flooded with light thanks to the double aspect windows and glass paned door to the small sun room, the wood burning stove with stone hearth and chimney breast make a practical, eye catching feature and beautifully complement the timber fitted kitchen.
A large bedroom with fitted units looks out to the back garden and, across the hall is the very spacious bathroom with low level access deep soak bath and separate shower unit, wash basin, WC and large wall cupboard.
The beautiful wrought iron staircase illuminated by a modern skylight leads up to the large landing opening into 2 very spacious attic bedrooms, both featuring dormer windows from which to enjoy the view, under eaves storage, electric heating and in one of them, fitted wardrobes. A third small room with lovely glass paned door and Velux window is ideal as a dressing room or home office.
Once the ancient kingdom of the Picts and still swimming in history (Glamis Castle is just a short drive), Forfar is the county town of Angus and the administrative centre for Angus Council with a new multi-million pound office complex on the outskirts of the town and a thriving monthly farmer’s market. Surrounded by magnificent farmlands, benefitting from Primary and Secondary schools, a leisure complex, ski slopes in close proximity and just under 14 miles to Dundee with its road and rail links to the rest of Scotland, this is an ideal location for those seeking a good work/life balance.

Alison, I am writing to thank you and your team for completing all matters in connection with my late father’s estate. I am so pleased that my parents had the foresight to introduce us so many years ago. Please pass on my particular thanks to Pauline for the excellent way in which she handled matters. She has always been cheerful and very professional in all dealings I’ve had with her. She has always been easy to talk to and has helped make the process as easy as possible for myself which is much appreciated. Thank you once again for the excellent way that you have dealt with my late father’s estate. ” Mr K , July 2021
