McEwan Fraser are delighted to be marketing this highly desirable detached family home. Meadowbank commands an elevated position overlooking the prestigious Dollar Academy with the rear garden providing uninterrupted views of the Ochil Hills and surrounding landscape.
This five bed-roomed home was designed by local architect William Kerr and built circa 1934, Kerr designed numerous historical public buildings and Country Houses which are evident throughout Clackmannanshire and the Central Belt. The property has been lovingly maintained by the current owners for almost 40 years.
The property is accessed by a private gated mono block paved driveway, which offers parking spaces for several cars, leading to the detached double garage with electric doors and provides further storage facility via a side door entry.
The house is surrounded by extensive gardens, which have a mixture of mature trees, hedges, shrubs and flower beds. Several footpaths lead you around this engaging outdoor space. The property benefits from two large lawns, separated by a mature hedgerow. The second lawn, subject to the necessary planning consent, has a potential development opportunity as a house plot.
Upon entering the vestibule the bright welcoming hallway provides access to the ground floor accommodation, consisting of a sitting room, formal lounge, dining room, breakfasting kitchen WC and cloakroom.
The majestic bespoke wheeled staircase boasts beautifully crafted pitch pine balustrades. The staircase is flooded with light from the sizeable period leaded window located on the landing, leading you upstairs to five impressively sized double bedrooms.
The sitting-room is light and spacious, with the electric fire serving as the focal point, while also offering space for various furniture configurations.

At one end, and overlooking the back garden, there is a large window seat; ideal for relaxing and enjoying the idyllic views. The central feature fireplace is fitted with a gas fire to keep you cosy in the winter nights. At either side of the fireplace are stylish fitted storage wall units with the original stained glass doors they also benefit from ambient mood lighting. This is a substantial spacious room and again offers many options for furniture configurations.
