“Smithy Croft” is a bespoke modern three bedroom detached villa designed by the present owners and local architect Paul Devlin in 1999. The exterior combines traditional render with weathered Canadian Western Red cedar cladding. The 1/3 acres plot (approx) is situated in the desirable Station Road which has a mixture of modern and traditional style homes and is just a short walk to the village amenities. The woodland plot has space for future building if required and for the parking of several cars. The country style ambiance is heightened with the River Dulnain running to the rear of the property. Wildlife abounds with varieties of birds, squirrels etc. 

The property enjoys a floor area of 175m² (approx). Its central attraction is the full height ceiling in the lounge which promotes spacious open plan living extending into the kitchen/dining area. Two ground floor large double/family size bedrooms and large family bathroom is accessed from a short hall leading off the lounge. There is excellent window coverage throughout and especially the feature south facing windows in the lounge and the windows in the first floor gallery lounge which overlooks the River Dulnain. The gallery lounge has separate access to the first floor en-suite and ample storage for stowaway beds. A short bannister lined walkway leads to the master bedroom. The bedroom has a south facing outlook with feature internal window and walk through dressing room to the en-suite.  Other benefits are a large utility room and front porch both with storage space, a wood burning stove in the lounge, oil fired central heating system with thermostatically controlled radiators, a pressurised hot water tank, double glazing throughout, hardwood staircase and finishings. The hot and cold water system is easily drained to below floor level and the heating system is protected with antifreeze making it safe to leave the house unoccupied for periods throughout the year.

A south facing sheltered terrace is attached to the house with granite boulder banking support wall feature. The garden is landscaped with boulder lined pathways running between shrub and tree borders, terraces and a patio which overlooks the river and natural woodland. The river is well below the property and is not liable to flooding. There is a substantial built detached shed and log store on concrete base with exterior cedar cladding and roof tiles matching the villa. It has electrics and heating.

Viewings are highly recommended to appreciate this desirable property.
