Dalbog Cottage, By Edzell, Angus, DD9 7UU
BEAUTIFUL DETACHED PROPERTY SET IN 2.3 ACRES WITH STABLING / OUTBUILDINGS
This is a unique opportunity to purchase a detached stone built property set in stunning, tranquil surroundings with breathtaking uninterrupted views from every part of the accommodation. Excellent equestrian facilities. Extensive off road hacking opportunities. Walking, hiking and mountain biking opportunities on the doorstep. The property is accessed via a quiet unclassified single track road which terminates a few hundred meters beyond. Although not utilized by the current owners the property would lend itself to bed & breakfast accommodation having spacious bedrooms with large en suites.
This home has been upgraded to a very high standard with fresh neutral décor throughout. Quality fixtures and fittings include wooden sash and case double glazed windows, oil fired central heating (with new Grant boiler installed in 2016). Full array of solar PV panels with attractively rated feed in tariff providing income.
The accommodation comprises:
The property is located two miles from the village of Edzell - an attractive and sought after community, situated at the foot of the Angus Glens. Edzell offers local shopping including an award winning butcher, cafes, post office, chemist, 2 hotels, health centre and a modern primary school which includes a nursery. There is a Country Club within the Glenesk Hotel and a renowned 18 hole golf course, together with a 9 hole course and a driving range.
The property is within a few miles of the A90 trunk road which provides easy access to Aberdeen to the north and south to Dundee, Perth and central Scotland. Both Aberdeen and Dundee are within easy commuting distance and provide all the services expected of major centres including private schooling. The nearby town of Brechin provides additional local shopping together with business services, leisure facilities and secondary schooling. Further shopping is found in the neighbouring Angus towns of Montrose, Arbroath and Forfar. Lathallan at Johnshaven is a well known prestigious private school. The nearest railway stations are at Laurencekirk and Montrose offering east coast mainline services.
The property has been extensively refurbished by the current owners including bathrooms, shower rooms, bedrooms and a large kitchen extension in 2016. As such it is an extremely well presented family home internally and externally.
On entry from the front of the property there is a large hallway with wooden flooring and separate doors leading off to each of the four bedrooms (three with en suite), a shower room, large cupboard and the dual aspect lounge / dining room. The large L-shaped wooden floored lounge / dining room with wall lighting and an open working fire place leads through into the recently extended large modern spacious kitchen with tiled flooring, large period style high efficiency radiators and a large feature island with integrated induction hob. It benefits from a large selection of units and drawers as well as an integrated full height fridge, conventional oven/grill and microwave oven. A utility room off the kitchen has matching units and shelving along with an oil fired boiler (installed new in 2016) and space for washing machine and tumble drier. The utility room also serves as a cloak and boot room.
The outdoor space has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Large decorative hookback gates at either end of the property lead in to a driveway laid with gravel that extends around the house allowing exit through the other gateway. The gardens are enclosed to the front by a locally sourced stone dyke which in recent years was entirely rebuilt and extended. The gardens have a varied selection of mature shrubs, bushes, trees and areas of lawn. Mature evergreen hedging and beech hedging surrounds the ends and rear of the property at a height which still allows the outstanding beauty of the surrounding farmland, forestry and mountains to be fully appreciated.
A well apportioned dog kennel and run to the side of the house has ample room for several dogs. To the rear is a stone-built building currently used for garden machinery and tools with an adjoining wood/coal shed. Both buildings have been refurbished including new roofs. Outside tap.
The house can be entered from the rear via a sandstone patio leading to a decorative half triple glazed door which leads into the kitchen.
A large pedestrian side gate at one end of the property leads out to the modern purpose built stabling and workshop both of which are finished to a high standard. Four loose boxes and tackroom.
The spacious and functional workshop has great storage capability with rows of easy access shelving. A large L-shaped work bench is served with power outlets and lighting. Narrow below roof height windows around the perimeter of both buildings give lots of natural light whilst maintaining privacy.
The 2 acre field surrounds the house and gardens and is currently laid to grass for horses. The sheep and rabbit proof fencing is electrified along the top wire. Stretches of evergreen hedging around the field provide amenity as well as shelter belts for horses\livestock. To appreciate the uniqueness that this property has to offer viewing is highly recommended.
