Jenniston House is a modern home which offers country house grandeur.
The house is stone faced under pitched clay pan tile roofs with dormer windows. It has an impressive and evenly proportioned front fa�ade and a spacious and well finished interior which makes it ideal both for entertaining and for family living.
The rooms are extremely spacious, bright and well laid out. A generous hall, with feature oak central staircase, makes an impressive entrance and gives access to a magnificent drawing room with views over the garden and to the Lomond hills to the west. It has air conditioning as does the dining room beside.
A grand corridor leads to the sitting room which faces south across the drive and front lawns. The kitchen and family room opposite are bright and spacious and benefit from large windows, patio doors and electric Velux windows overlooking the courtyard behind. There is excellent storage space with a utility room and boot room.
Connecting doors lead to the east wing with two guest bedrooms (one used as an office), a bathroom and a large games or party room (this could also be used as a gym / home cinema) with double patio doors leading onto a large terrace.
. There are two additional bedrooms on the upper floor.
The flooring is insulated concrete with Porcelanosa tiling to all ground floor rooms. This provides a welcome level of cooling in the summer months and the underfloor heating provides a lovely warmth to the touch and throughout the house in the winter months.
The first floor accommodation is centred on a galleried landing. There is a wonderful principal bedroom with a west facing balcony served by its own dressing room and en suite bathroom. There are three further family bedrooms. One has its own en suite bathroom. The other two share a shower room.
Cottage & Garaging
There is a two bedroom cottage opposite adjoining a range of outbuildings. The cottage is well finished and generates a useful income from holiday lets. The outbuildings comprise five garages and a workshop, designed to look like a row of cottages from outside. The garages and workshop are heated and insulated with hot and cold water and a WC.
An impressive entrance with electric gates gives way to a large sweeping drive with lawns. To the north of the house, outside the kitchen, is an enclosed private courtyard area which has a backdrop of mature mixed woodland.
To the south the lawns lead around the cottage to a paddock area with a mature Scots pine coppice.
There is also a separate access to Jenniston Cottage and the paddock for guests.
