For those who like the idea of the ‘Downton’ life, then Pardovan House is the one for you.
The current owners, John and Samantha Blackwood, have lived here for the last four years. John said: “The house sits in land which has had a property on it since Roman times. Originally there was a castellated building, some say it was Pardovan castle, which, after a fire destroyed it, our home then rose from the ashes having been built in 1850.”
The elegant and beautifully presented five bedroom detached Victorian country property dating from around 1850 is set within substantial grounds of approximately 1.4 acres, which includes lovely gardens, a driveway, large paddock, a range of outbuildings including stables and a coach house currently used as a double garage, along with an orchard and kitchen garden.
The property is located in a wonderfully, tranquil and rural setting with open outlooks across fields and countryside, yet conveniently close to excellent transport networks allowing for easy commuting within central Scotland. The property is superbly presented having been refurbished to an exacting standard by the current owners, whilst retaining many period features such as wood floors and cornicing.
Accommodation comprises: vestibule; hall; drawing room; dining room; snug; billiard room; rear hall; boot room; cloakroom; butler’s pantry; laundry room; kitchen; prep kitchen; garden room; courtyard with three external store rooms; master suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom; four further bedrooms and attic space.
The grounds are entered through an impressive set of cast iron gates and a sweeping driveway takes you to the front entrance with ample off-road parking.
