The property is part of a typical historic stone cottage, which was subdivided into four separate apartments many years ago. It is located on a quiet street overlooking the village. This upper floor apartment is accessible directly from the street.
Over the past decade, the apartment has been painstakingly restored and remodelled internally by its architect owner, with walls selectively stripped back to the original stone, beams exposed and repaired, etc. Additionally, the floor plan has been opened up, with flowing open spaces replacing the excessively subdivided original arrangement, creating a feeling of space, brightness and openness to external views.
The roof space has become a large double bedroom, accessed through a double height space at the entrance area. At the lower level, a cooking/dining/living space opens onto a nook which can either be used as an extension to the living area, or closed off to form an extra bedroom. A spacious bathroom completes the accommodation.
There is a great deal of storage space in the eaves of the bedroom upstairs, whilst an integrated storage wall downstairs contains a wardrobe and shelving/cupboard space. The craftsmanship is of an exemplary standard throughout – the kitchen features bespoke cabinetry made by silodesignandbuild of Glasgow, including an oak breakfast bar (and comes with a fridge/freezer and oven/hobs); herringbone solid oak parquet with carefully decorative border details has been laid throughout the lower floor, complementing the modernity of much of the new work with a classical counterpoint.
The house has recently been entirely re-plumbed and rewired.
