NO ONWARD CHAIN.Set within approximately 6 acres of land, including grazing pasture, formal gardens, courtyard and driveways Escott House presents a unique opportunity to own a fantastic smallholding in a beautiful location. This wonderful farmhouse sits in a commanding position at the front of its plot. Believed to date from circa 1840 the property enjoys wonderful far reaching country views to every aspect. The Farmhouse offers spacious, light and airy accommodation but the outstanding feature of this home is the land and outbuildings which truly enhance it and make it an absolutely special home. The land is free from public footpaths or rights of way, completely surrounds the property and offers total seclusion. The pasture is presently set aside for wildlife, including barn owls, kestrels and buzzards, all of which fly over the land very regularly. Deer are common in the locality and may often be seen in the surrounding fields. The acreage is level or very gently sloping, arranged in separate paddocks around the farmhouse, and ideal for horses or other livestock. There is potential for ancillary accommodation with the two stone built barns (subject to the necessary consents), one is currently used as large workshop/garage, the other is converted into a fully-insulated, climate-controlled, 3-room building. Escott House offers the following well presented accommodation: dining hall, 25 foot sitting room with French door to the rear garden, fitted kitchen, cloakroom and lobby on the ground floor. The first floor has three double bedrooms, one with a Jack and Jill shower room and the family bathroom. On the second floor are the further two bedrooms and a shower room. Windows have recently been replaced throughout with new 'tilt and slide' sash windows. Being sold with the added benefit of no onward chain.
A new tax has come into force changing the way Scottish home buyers pay duty on property.
