A magnificent detached residence offering unrivalled levels of craftsmanship within an especially scenic "picture postcard" landscape.

This enviable and highly exclusive location ensures a fabulous degree of privacy with a sweeping driveway leading to the newly constructed garage block and around 6 acres of beautifully manicured garden grounds and woodland.

 

Crossford House is a traditionally built property offering substantial accommodation mainly arranged over two levels with a fitness room located within the attic level.

Property Details & Description

 

Accommodation

 

The flexible layout comprises: broad welcoming hallway with double height ceiling providing a galleried upper level landing. This hallway leads to the ground floor apartments including: lounge with fireplace, office and utility room. A large open plan triple aspect dining kitchen features both a centre island breakfasting bar for casual dining and corner sited log-burning stove. The conservatory provides further public space with views over the rear gardens. The ground floor is completed by an inner hall, laundry room and family bathroom.

 

The first floor offers four bedrooms, all benefitting from extensive fitted storage and shower room. The principal is especially impressive with dressing room and en-suite with bedroom 2 being the largest of the four with further walk-in wardrobe/dressing room.

 

The attic level includes the aforementioned fitness room and further attic storage.

 

The property has been finished to an exacting standard with fresh, contemporary decoration throughout including quality internal finishes and floor coverings. The high specification finish also includes double glazing, gas central heating and security alarm system.

 

The grounds which total approximately 6 acres are home to a wonderful array of nature with Byres Burn running through the grounds on route to joining the River Clyde at nearby Hazelbank. A stone bridge has been faithfully restored by skilled stonemasons and stands pride of place within the gardens.

 

Crossford House is completely hidden from the private road and on entering the driveway you first notice dozens of native species of trees such as chestnut, beech, cherry, maple and holly planted by the current owners some 24 years ago which have matured to compliment the older trees including a 400-year-old English Yew.

 

As you continue along the drive you find Crossford House and the recently commissioned detached triple garage. Designed to blend seamlessly with the original house, the garage includes both a two car and a single car garage with attic space and which benefits from power, light and security alarm system.

 

The wonderful gardens are beautifully maintained with the surrounding wood providing a ready supply of timber with approximately 20 tonnes of split logs, stacked and tried in the adjacent timber sheds.

 

Dating back to the 1840s Crossford House was originally built as a gas house, to supply power to the historic Stonebyres Estate. This estate lies three miles from the market town of Lanark in Scotland's "Garden Valley".

 

This estate included Stonebyres House, once one of the most luxurious stately homes in Scotland with over 30 bedrooms, formal gardens, parklands and a grand banqueting hall.

 

Following the demolition of Stonebyres House in 1934 due to family debts the estate was taken over by the Department of Agriculture in 1936 and split into 28 smallholdings.

 

Today, the remaining walled garden, coach house, stables, ice-houses,  stone bridges and entrance lodges speak to the long and rich history of the estate now being enjoyed by some 30 families with each property served by approximately 5 miles of private roads offering a real sense of community within such a picturesque hamlet.

Situation:

The Stonebyres Estate has long been popular with discerning home-owners and sits within beautiful Clyde Valley scenery and within moments of extensive river-side walks. The estate lies beside the village of Crossford which enjoys local facilities and a newly built and highly regarded primary school. Further amenities are on offer at neighbouring Lanark and Carluke which include secondary schooling,  a wide range of shops, selection of bars and restaurants, New Lanark Heritage Centre and sporting pursuits including golf clubs and the train stations offering speedy commute to business centres throughout Scotland including Glasgow and Edinburgh.
