If you have ever leafed through a trendy design magazine, you will know that there are certain houses that capture the imagination and take your breath away. Byre Cottage is that such place, beautiful, stylish, impressive, but at the same time, a fun and functional place in which to live life to the full and to enjoy with friends and family.
This substantial, three bedroom detached villa is formed over two spacious internal levels and was architecturally designed and converted from an old farm building, around 2004, to blend traditional charm with modern convenience, with the main living room and sun lounge on the upper floor, to take in the stunning views.
The property enjoys a beautiful rural setting and forms part of the Lakin development, benefiting from views across the Shiskine Valley to both the east and north and provides an unparalleled opportunity to purchase the ultimate ‘lifestyle’ home. The Lakin is a small settlement in the Torbeg area of Shiskine comprising of five dwellings. The Byre is the most easterly of these and benefits from tremendous views over the Shiskine Valley.
The property has been very well upgraded both internally and externally, to create fantastic and flexible accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify.
When the property was re-developed, the builders used luxurious, high-quality fittings and finishes and the latest in high-tech features to create a house that is the last word in sophistication and refined taste. This home is of the 21st century, designed for people who appreciate what modern thinking can do to boost their quality of life. Great emphasis has been placed on the creation of easily managed and free-flowing space on a bright and fresh layout.
This fantastic home sits in ample garden grounds, which include a timber shed and a secluded patio with raised beds, mature trees and shrubs, the perfect spot for a lazy summer’s day. On the lower level, there are vegetable plots, flower beds and an ornamental pond. With red squirrels, a host of wild birds visiting the feeders and a resident owl family, this is a secluded haven. The front of the property beckons you onto the large driveway offering ample parking for a number of vehicles. Ample space exists for the erection of a garage, if desired (STPP).
In more detail, the accommodation consists of a welcoming vestibule, which benefits from storage facilities for hanging coats and storing boots.
The hub of the home is the magnificent open plan kitchen/family/diner, which has been beautifully fitted to include an excellent range of floor and wall mounted units with a striking charcoal worktop, providing a fashionable and efficient workspace. It further benefits from a Flavel Milano range cooker and an integrated dishwasher and fridge, making this the ideal kitchen for an aspiring chef. There is ample room for a large table for more informal dining with friends and family. From the kitchen, there is access to the utility room, which is plumbed for a washing machine and tumble dryer and has space in an upright fridge freezer. A personal door leads out to the garden and patio.
F rom the open-plan kitchen/family/dining room, the staircase takes you to the upper level, which is the perfect space for entertaining, The glazing in the lounge makes the most of the natural light to create a modern and contemporary ambience and offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside from three sides. There is a very comfy sun room located off the living room with a Juliet balcony. There is a third bedroom on this level, which features an en-suite shower-room.
The high specifications of this family home also include double glazing and oil central heating.
This property also includes a new boiler, guaranteed until 2022.
