A historic semi-detached character property situated in the picturesque grounds of the Kinneil Estate, land granted by King Robert the Bruce to Walter Fitzgilbert of Hamilton in 1323, and now a popular recreational park.
This three bedroom cottage dates back to the eighteenth century and would have housed essential workers employed by the Dukes of Hamilton. It is Category B listed, and offers an abundance of history as well as being a fine example of Scottish vernacular architecture. Remnants of the Antoine Wall can be found close-by.
No. 4 Duchess Anne Cottages was awarded the Saltire Award for preservation work and is packed with period features including thick stone walls, sash and case windows, an original fireplace and wooden ceiling beams in the lounge.
The property offers cosy living over two floors with the ground level initially consisting of a modern kitchen/diner with integrated Bosch appliances and breakfast bar – installed in 2002. A hallway connects all the rooms on the ground floor and provides access to the first floor by way of a staircase. The dual aspect lounge houses an original fireplace with the stonework being reconditioned in 2000. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is an all-important WC and back hall providing access to the garden.
To the first floor, two of the three bedrooms are of a generous double size and include built-in wardrobe space. The third bedroom also has a built-in wardrobe and a telephone point (as does the master bedroom), giving the perfect option of becoming an office space if desired. The bathroom offers a shower over the large ‘P’ shaped bath and is fully tiled.
The rear garden of this pristine property is perfectly manicured and offers an abundance of stunning foliage as well as being home to the garage. It further offers a well maintained grass lawn, in addition to a paved patio, perfect for catching the Scottish sunshine. The front garden is as equally well maintained, offerings both grassed lawn and flowerbeds leading to the front of this picturesque cottage.
The windows and guttering have been repainted within the last three years, ensuring this idyllic cottage looks its best.
The loft of this property is fully floored, insulated and has a pull down ladder. The property has gas central heating and single glazing.
