Balnakiel House is a very impressive detached period residence that has been sympathetically restored and renovated. Built in stone around 1869 for Peter Sanderson a local Mill owner, this handsome Victorian mansion house was later converted in 2007 to create four individual apartments. Great attention has been made to retain the original features and character of this home whilst also ensuring a high standard of modern living is achieved.
Approached from an impressive shared ground featuring mature trees including a sequoia fir tree, the property boasts an impressive communal entrance with accessible living ramp, wooden panelled entrance hall, fine staircase and magnificent stained glass windows.
The property comprises of a large entrance hallway, modern dining kitchen with dual aspect windows and fully integrated kitchen with a range of appliances. This modern room is finished with a range of wall and base units with integral appliances that include, a five ring Smeg ceramic hob, double Smeg oven and extractor hood over. There is a double stainless steel sink, dishwasher, fridge freezer and integrated washing machine.
The impressive family lounge featuring a magnificent Georgian style fireplace that the current owners have installed and a fantastic bay window with wonderful views, large dining room, toilet/cloak room with WC, master bedroom with en-suite and modern three-piece bathroom with shower over the bath, in the hallway there are ample storage cupboards.
3 Balnakiel House itself is accessed from the first floor from the communal stairway. The spacious interior has been attractively modernised utilising some contemporary finishes, which complement the many fine original period features.
A large apartment split over two floors, the property features a selection of generous public spaces, large bedrooms that includes en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. Heated by gas central heating the apartment retains many of the original features such as ornate ceiling and plasterwork, cornicing, large sash windows with original shutters throughout, panelled doors and fantastic Georgian style fireplace in the family lounge. It now also benefits from recently upgraded double glazing throughout completed in 2012.
Upstairs, there is a large bedroom, utilised currently as an office and home entertainment room with dual sliding wardrobes that lead to a period window. The third bedroom is smaller and more conventional in layout that also has an en-suite shower room and storage. There is a forth smaller bedroom with Velux window and an impressive four-piece bathroom completes the flat itself.
The current owners have added to the accommodation, by acquiring the two small outhouses found on the grounds of Balnakiel House, currently these have been made into the one guest wing, with two individual shower rooms and toilets, they could easily be converted back into two, single guest accommodations or indeed a granny annex, or suitable for a variety of home based businesses.

The property further benefits from two dedicated parking spaces and ample guest parking. Early viewing is highly recommended.
