Description

The original Kincaple House was built for Alexander Meldrum and dates from 1879. It is an impressive and imposing mansion house, constructed of stone under a series of pitched slate roofs with a magnificent façade. In 1928, John Donald Mills, a renowned local architect, undertook the reconstruction of the original house and added the wings.   

The property has been subdivided into two houses and three further flats in the east (former servants) wing. The garden flat is situated on the lower ground floor of the south east wing and is accessed from a shared private driveway and surrounded by mature trees. Steps lead to the front door on the lower ground floor. There is a storage cupboard in the hall directly outside the flat's entrance.

There are two double bedrooms with ample space, one of which has a built-in wardrobe. The third bedroom is slightly smaller, and currently has two single beds. The kitchen has a Hisense oven and induction hob with an extractor fan. There is an integrated washing machine and a free-standing fridge/freezer. The bathroom is in a smart condition and features a bath as well as a separate electric shower.

The large living room has a gas fire, spotlights and a French door which opens out onto a patio which is owned by West Kincaple House. The owner of the Garden Flat has a right of access for maintenance only.

The garden is shared with two other flats and comprises a lawn flanked by the drive and hedge.
