Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate this impressive family-sized property. Designed and built by prominent local architect John Melvin in the late 1830’s, this handsome ‘C’ (S) listed, semi-detached villa is now contained within the Alloa Conservation Area. 2 Grange Road would benefit from some modernisation but as a consequence of its size, it offers enormous scope and flexibility for family life. Any of its six light-filled bedrooms could lend themselves to, for instance, home office space, a playroom, or studio space. Stepping into the porch you can only be impressed by this spacious, airy home. The sizable ground floor accommodation has a variety of rooms, retaining many period features in which any discerning family would delight.
The property is accessed via the vestibule, which in turn leads through to a bright, spacious reception hall; both areas are floored throughout with stunning original decorative tiling. A curved staircase with decorative bannisters, lead up to the upper floors. This home has retained most of its period features including astragal sash and case windows with shutters, beautiful cornicing, floor tiles and panel doors. In addition, several original fireplaces still remain.
On the ground floor, the family/dining room is filled with light from the large south-facing bay window. This room could easily accommodate gatherings of family and friends for more formal dining. The south-facing main lounge has an open fire with original marble mantelpiece, which, although currently painted, could be easily restored. The kitchen has a wealth of floor and wall-mounted units, with a cosy adjacent sitting room that provides access to the back lobby and garden. A fourth bedroom is also located in the back of this property and there is a very handy utility room and a white three-piece bathroom with electric shower and original tongue and groove wooden panelling.
Taking the staircase to the first floor, there are three good-sized double bedrooms, lacking no shortage of space for free-standing furniture. As with the lounge below, the master bedroom has an open tiled fireplace with original marble mantelpiece, again currently painted but easily restored. The three-piece bathroom on this floor has a fireplace with a pretty cast-iron insert and generous storage is to be found in the walk-in under-stair cupboard leading off the room.
A separate attic staircase with decorative cast-iron bannisters leads to the top floor where there are two double bedrooms with attractive coombed ceilings. Stunning views are to be had from here across Clackmannanshire towards Stirlingshire. There is generous storage space in the eaves, accessed through the small doors from these bedrooms.
This property has a somewhat ‘antiquated’ solid fuel central heating system that has not been used for many years. There are Victorian-Style cast-iron radiators throughout the ground floor that could be re-connected to an upgraded heating system. An emersion heating with lagged tank provides hot water. The kitchen/sitting room has storage heaters.
There are well-maintained garden grounds to the front, side and rear of the property with more than ample parking. A very, very beautiful secluded back garden affords peace, privacy and security for children and family pets. A private garden gate gives direct access to the West End Park, the largest in Alloa with its playpark and sports pitches.
Extras (Included in the sale): Floor coverings, light fittings and window dressings.
