Plenty of us daydream of living in the countryside with acres of land to ourselves…but we would just miss the city too much if we were far away.
So for a property to deliver the best of both worlds is a bit like finding a golden ticket.
But that’s exactly what this huge, traditional country mansion near Newton Mearns offers…if you happen to have £1 million to spare, of course.
Located on Netherplace Road, the five-bedroom home is just 20 minutes from Glasgow and sits in approximately seven acres of land, and even has its own stables, just to finish off the storybook aura.
The original house dates back to 1805 but has been modernised into a seriously spacious family home.
It features a stone pillared vestibule giving access to the main reception hall with the original curving staircase where there is access to both the main public rooms. To the back, the main hub of the house is centred around the huge living/dining kitchen, which gives direct access to the back garden/patio, with double doors also leading to the covered outdoor siting and barbecue area.
Accessed from the kitchen is also a large cloakroom boot room with a shower room off and utility room, which then leads to a walk in pantry/wine store.
The first floor boasts the master bedroom with double doors to the dressing room, which also turn leads to the en-suite bathroom. Bedrooms two and three are also located at this level and both also having dressing areas and en-suite bathrooms.
The second floor features two additional bedrooms with dressing rooms and en-suites.
But it’s the outside that really impressed us.
Sitting in the seven acres of land, there is a riding school, large baddock, lawns to the front, woodland and a children’s play area.
Of course, all this space doesn’t come cheap, and the property is on the market for offers over £1,650,000.
We suppose we’ll just go read The Secret Garden instead…
