Part Exchange available. Viewing is a must to fully appreciate this magnificent former Lairds House located in a beautiful picturesque setting. The original part of Culter House is thought to date from about 1668, with the wings being converted from farm buildings in the early 18th century. Culter House is an impressive symmetrical house with pediment above a pillared entrance at the front. To the rear there is a majestic avenue of deciduous trees stretching far into the distance. Culter House has been returned to one property by the current owners. Despite its size, Culter House is an ideal family house with a manageable number of reception rooms to ensure that they are regularly used.
The reception hall has been transformed into a sitting room with a wood burning stove and provides a natural hub within the house. The kitchen lies in the west wing and is well proportioned with ample room for a farmhouse-style table. The dining room has original paneling and comfortably seats up to 12 guests. It leads through to a bright games room with direct access out to the garden. Both the dining room and games room are supported by a useful second kitchen.
The drawing room lies on the first floor and stretches the length of the west wing. With original paneling, a vaulted ceiling and a large open fireplace it is a wonderful atmospheric room for formal entertaining. The double doors open through to the library with direct access down to the ground floor via external stone staircase.
The master bedroom has spectacular views down the length of the avenue of trees, and together with the dressing room and en-suite bathroom, creates a luxury suite.
Culter House East lies in the east wing providing a self contained annex within Culter House. With 2 reception rooms, a kitchen and 6 bedrooms, it provides flexibility for staff or letting accommodation or an office for those working from home. Alternatively it can be incorporated into the main house. There is an external store adjoining the wing, and double garage.

Garden: The principal gardens lie to the back of the house with an expanse of lawn leading to a ha-ha and a tree lined avenue stretching for about a mile. The avenue is lined with mature beech oak and ash trees. To the front of the house is an area of lawn which is perfect as acroquet lawn. During the spring there is an array of snowdrops, crocuses, bluebells and daffodils throughout the grounds.
