Drumalbin Park is a charming, and unique, detached stone built cottage set within 6.67 acres of mainly woodland and pasture, situated only a short drive from the market town of Lanark.
The property, built around 1895, displays a number of attractive period features including beautiful exposed stonework and fireplaces, fitted with multi-fuel stoves.
The accommodation is arranged over one level and comprises three double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate shower room, two reception rooms and a large kitchen/diner. The master bedroom has a beautiful and original exposed stone wall, recently professionally cleaned and repointed with lime mortar, and is fitted with a new multi fuel stove. There are also two further double bedrooms. The principal sitting room at the rear of the property is double aspect with French doors and picture windows which capture the views of the undulating parkland and impressive sunsets. The room also features a new multi-fuel stove.
The additional sitting room is a cosy snug with double aspect windows allowing plenty of natural light. The large family traditional-style kitchen/diner is the hub of the house which provides a warm welcome with a centrepiece Esse Ironheart range cooker, and an island unit with Belfast sink. The magnificent views from the kitchen windows capture the sunrise over farmland and the summit of Tinto Hill. The attic space has been boarded and provides good storage and has the potential for other uses. In addition to the multi-fuel stoves, the property has the benefit of a renewable Biomass central heating and hot water system.
The back door of the property leads into a small sheltered courtyard, which is an afternoon suntrap. Externally, at the rear, there is a purpose-built shed to host the boiler, and there is also a workshop, a large garage/ store, two large timber sheds and one small shed for storing logs. A private sweeping driveway gives access to ample parking at the rear of the property.
Drumalbin Park would definitely appeal to nature lovers. In recent years a pond and a wide range of trees have been planted to encourage many different bird species, and other wildlife. Snowdrops in winter, daffodils in spring, and wildflowers in the summer provide colour and interest. Footpaths and seating around the grounds lead to a burn running along one of the boundaries. Open views of the countryside are all around.
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 the West of Scotland.
