A spacious family home in Fairmilehead

Stepping inside this attractive 1930’s bungalow in Fairmilehead, you will be surprised at the spaciousness.


Thanks to an extension at the back, 17 Buckstone Terrace is spread out over three floors, and features a large, sun-welcoming garden to enjoy all year round.

The home has a driveway at the front of the house, leading to the garage, and a separate gate that opens into the front garden. Entering the home, the bright living room is at the front of the house and features a lovely bay window and fireplace. Also at the front of the house is the bay-windowed dining room which has plenty of room for entertaining.

The kitchen is a deceptively large room, with many different worktop areas to make it ideal for those who love cooking. It also has room for a breakfast table, where you can enjoy the garden views over morning coffee.

The ground floor bedroom looks out over the garden, and also on this floor is a spacious bathroom and a separate shower room, and one of many storage spaces.

Going upstairs to the first floor, you will find three further bedrooms, one of which has access to extensive eaves storage.

From the ground floor, stairs lead down to a unique, impressive space which has access to the garden. This extensive space offers a large yet cosy living area where the family can gather by the fire to watch television, read or entertain. Off this area is a separate, raised space which could be a playroom, an extra bedroom or a snug. There are also two store rooms, a utility room for doing laundry, and a workshop. This workshop is under the garage, and one unique feature of this workshop is the mechanic’s pit. The sun room, just off the family room, offers another relaxing space, where you can enjoy the garden views and soak up spring and summer sunshine. The space on this lower ground floor is very flexible, allowing you to adapt it for your own  needs.


The sunny rear garden is enclosed by a stone wall and has been beautifully designed and planted with a variety of trees, including a plum tree, vegetable patches and various flowered borders. Living here you won’t be short of places to enjoy the garden, including a patio and a lovely decking area at the back of the garden.

As well as the single, attached garage which has a water supply, power and light, there is plenty of parking for additional vehicles at the front on a gravel parking area.
