Torbracken is one of four outstanding individually built homes in a courtyard setting situated in the quiet Hamlet of Tillietudlem, South Lanarkshire. This spacious modern home of over 3200 square feet has been uniquely designed to offer tranquility and privacy. The stunning views from the rear of the house across the Nethan and Clyde Valley's are what the current owners describe as " the natural de-stressor to modern life.
The location offers country living with forest walks on your door step and the convenience of a five minute drive to join the M74 motorway and it's links to central Scotland and beyond, with the center of Glasgow being reached within 25 minutes.
An outer vestibule leads to the reception hallway which has a bespoke design set within the Karndean flooring, from this hallway is access to all ground floor rooms. This property has the added benefit of having underfloor heating throughout.
The real hub of the home is the Kitchen/Dining/Family area, underfoot is a fabulous slate floor which is a real feature throughout this space. Initially, it will be the views that capture you, but taking your attention back to the kitchen, this space is well laid out with a range of floor and wall mounted units, including some innovative storage. There is also a Belfast sink and Rangemaster stove for the aspiring chef in your family. From the kitchen is access to the utility room which also leads to the integral garage. The kitchen also has a breakfast bar for a quick meal at breakfast time or for the kids to do their homework whilst parents are preparing dinner. For more formal dining there is a large space for a dining table, where you can eat whilst taking in the surroundings, once full you can pour on to the sofas in the family sitting area to watch the tv or play a game. This part of the home is where most people will spent the majority of the time and where memories will be made for years to come.
Within the formal lounge, the wood burning stove and stone fireplace are the real focal points, the fireplace is simply stunning. In rather fabulous contrast to the traditional features is the modern and completely unique light feature which will be a real talking point amongst your guests. Underfoot we have a plush cream carpet which coupled with the rich colours of the furniture and warmth of the fireplace, I am sure you will agree makes this formal lounge exquisite.
Downstairs there is a Double Bedroom which is currently being used as a home office and directly opposite there is a bathroom which is completely tiled with a shower system and its very own steam room. A great addition to any house but also a fantastic guest bedroom and bathroom.
Ascending to the upper-level attention should be paid to the switchback stairwell which is lit and the beautiful feature window, allowing natural light to both hallways. Upstairs the same attention to detail and immaculate décor is maintained.
For a modern property, it would be easy to expect character to be void. What I love about this house are the quirky features you wouldnt necessarily expect, upstairs is where I think you see this most in the sloping or curved walls.
There are three further bedrooms upstairs, all have built-in storage and bedrooms two and three have a jack n jill bathroom and the Master has an en-suite.
In more details the Master Bedroom, well what can I say? Who would like a Dressing room, Balcony to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening, large spacious room maybe even views from bed. Torbracken gives you this and a little more by way of a 12ft circular En-suite that will literally make you gasp. This bathroom has a double bath, a fantastic shower and his and her sinks what else could you possibly need.
The two other bedrooms upstairs are generous doubles and are beautifully decorated. Both of these bedrooms would allow for an array of furniture configurations.
There is also the large room which is located above the garage, this room is currently being used as a games room but could be adapted for any purpose, possibly a self-contained annexe. On both levels, this home also boasts an extensive amount of storage space as well as a loft space.
Externally this property is enveloped within beautiful gardens. There is decking which runs the length of the property to the rear space accessible from the patio doors from the family room and also the dining area. To the side of the property, there is a lush lawn with planting areas for the green-fingered as well as a sunken trampoline and patio area. Of an evening imagine sitting in the hot tub after some alfresco dining with a cool glass of something looking up at the stars. Bliss.
Tillietudlem is a fictional castle in Walter Scott's 1816 novel Old Mortality. Interest in Scott's novel attracted visitors to its supposed inspiration, Craignethan Castle. The historic castle is now located in a modern hamlet known as Tillietudlem. Scott was later quoted saying "as coming nearest to the ideal of the place." when describing the location of the property we are delighted to introduce you to.
