As you walk into the hall of this beautifully proportioned three bedroomed detached bungalow you will be instantly drawn to the panoramic view of the countryside towards Scotland which spans a full 180 degrees from the kitchen window.

Much love, time and money has gone into creating a fabulous home for the present owners - the attention to detail is exceptional right down to the style of the internal doors, the construction of the handmade oak flooring in the living room and the design of the kitchen to give practical yet contemporary family living space - the list goes on!

But what awaits you outside is a single detached building (measuring 47 sq.m.) which was constructed recently to a high specification and this currently offers a great space for gym but subject to planning/building regulation approval could make a fabulous annexe to generate income - again with a fabulous view! Alternatively it would make a fabulous work-from-home space.
