Drumalbin Park is a charming detached cottage set within 7 acres of land only a short drive from the market town of Lanark.
The cottage itself, built around 1895, displays a wealth of period features which are in keeping with the character of the building. These include beautiful exposed stonework, wooden ceiling beams, fireplaces fitted with multi-fuel stoves, and solid oak floors.
The accommodation is arranged over one level and comprises a formal lounge with French doors and picture windows capturing the picturesque backdrop of the open rear gardens and countryside views, a cosy sitting roomwith double aspect windows allowing lots of natural light, and a tremendous traditional-style dining kitchen with a feature electric range cooker, an island unit with Belfast sink, and a pantry. There are also three double bedrooms, a four-piece family bathroom and a separate shower room.The layout would lend itself to being subdivided into two separate living areas. In addition a large part of the attic has been converted into a floored and lined room fitted with a velux window and radiator which could be used for various purposes.
The property further benefits from hardwood windows installed to enhance the character of the cottage, and a modern efficient central heating and hot water system using renewable biomass energy (wood pellets). Outside there is a purpose-built shed to host the boiler, an outdoor store (formerly used as an office), a large garage/ workshop, two timber garages and a small shed. A private sweeping driveway gives access to ample parking to the rear of the property.
The property would definitely appeal to nature lovers. In recent years a wildlife pond and a wide range of trees have been planted in the 7-acre grounds to encourage wildlife, and many different bird species have been attracted. Snowdrops in winter, daffodils in spring, and wildflowers in the summer provide colour and interest. Footpaths and seating around the grounds lead to a stream running along one of the boundaries. Open views of the countryside are all around. At Christmas time you have a choice of homegrown xmas trees. The property is a registered agricultural holding although is currently not used as such.
The property is located on the outskirts of Lanark. The Royal Burgh of Lanark is steeped in history and has all the required facilities and amenities, including newly built grammar school, historic 18 hole golf course and Lanark Loch, the World Heritage site at New Lanark, good access to the Scottish Borders and the Clyde valley, providing excellent walks for the outdoor enthusiast including Tinto Hill and the Falls of Clyde. Lanark is much favoured particularly for those requiring good transport links and easy access to Glasgow and Edinburgh, rural yet not isolated feel and value for money. From the property, Edinburgh City Bypass is only a forty minute drive away, giving access to East Central Scotland. The M74 is only a ten minute journey giving access to Glasgow and the South and West of Scotland.
