Glendyne is situated at the head of one of the most sought-after roads in Upper Dunblane. The area comprises large, detached houses set on a hill with beautiful views towards the Trossachs. The Crescent is within a short walking distance of the town centre and railway station. Dunblane is one of the country's smallest cathedral cities and lies between the rugged mountain peaks of Perthshire to the north and the rich fertile Carse of Stirling to the south. The magnificent cathedral is the focal point of this charming town with a population of around 9,000 residents.
The town has a variety of local shops and convenient supermarkets as well as restaurants and pubs. It also offers good recreational facilities which include tennis, squash and bowling clubs and a golf club. Gleneagles Hotel with its leisure club and world famous golf courses is only 14 miles away. The Dunblane Centre has a range of facilities available for all ages such as a sports hall, art studio, fitness suite, music room and a conference room.
There are three primary schools in the vicinity which feed Dunblane High School. There is also a good selection of nursery schools and private schools nearby including Ardvreck and Morrison's Academy in Crieff and Dollar Academy.
Dunblane is well placed for road and rail connections to all the major towns and cities of central Scotland. The pivot of the motorway network is only 2 miles to the south with the M9 and M80 giving quick access to Edinburgh and Glasgow respectively. The A9 has dual carriageway all the way to Perth. Both Edinburgh and Glasgow airports are easily accessible.
Glendyne is an outstanding family home situated in a private setting in upper Dunblane. The house is traditional in style, and is thought to date back to around 1902. While it is full of character, the accommodation has recently undergone extensive upgrading, and now features an appealing new dining kitchen and a separate utility room. The house sits within stunning, mature gardens and has the benefit of outbuildings including a separate home office and an integral garage.
The house has three principal reception rooms all set off the main ground floor hall. The sitting room and dining room open up into one another, offering excellent open plan entertaining space, thanks to original solid wood bi-folding doors. The formal sitting room overlooks the gardens to the south and has an open fire. The family room overlooks the western gardens and has a wood burning stove. The current owners have recently created a spacious dining kitchen designed by Ashley Ann and fitted with contemporary cabinets topped with quartz, and high spec appliances including NEFF ovens, Siemens five ring induction hob, a Samsung American style fridge freezer, a Siemens integrated dishwasher and a Caple integrated wine fridge. The hob is housed in a central island with quartz surface and breakfast bar. A door leads out onto the patio overlooking the west facing garden. The ground floor also has a utility room, boot room and WC. There is direct access into the integral garage.
The bedrooms are all located on the first floor. The principal bedroom has lovely views over the gardens and the Trossachs beyond and benefits from an en suite shower room as well as a walk in wardrobe. There are four further bedrooms which share a family bathroom and a separate shower room. There is also a walk in linen cupboard.
To the north of the house is an integral garage. A detached outhouse also sits to the side of the house. This has been cleverly converted into a home office with views over the garden and electric night storage heating.
The gardens and grounds at Glendyne are stunning, and extend to approximately 0.62 acres in all. To the south side of the house is a large stretch of level lawn surrounded by well stocked flower beds, mature trees and shrubs. The main gardens lie to the rear of the house facing west. An outdoor terraced area runs the length of the house and overlooks the gardens with westerly views beyond. The south and west facing gardens and elevated position mean that Glendyne enjoys the sun all day and until late in the evening in the summer months. Steps lead down from the patio onto the lawn. A variety of mature trees surround the garden offering shelter and ample privacy.
