Sitting room, dining room and living room
An inviting porch welcomes you to the property. To the front, there is a bright and spacious sitting room with full-height windows and French doors set within a wide archway and framed by elegant timber panelling. A second archway leads to the adjoining dining room, which features a log fire and French doors, which provides direct access to the back garden. Both rooms also have a classic Edinburgh Press. A cosy living room also benefits from an Edinburgh Press and a handsome fireplace.
The bright breakfasting kitchen offers plenty of fitted units, workspace and freestanding appliances. It also benefits from a separate utility room with a walk-in store and direct access to the garden. An accessible shower rooms completes the ground floor accommodation.

The staircase continues onto the upper landing, where there are two double bedrooms with double wardrobes and a well-proportioned single bedroom/study, all of which enjoy south-easterly views across the rolling hills and trees.
The vast gardens are one of the highlights of the property. Securely enclosed, they offer outstanding privacy and seclusion thanks to being surrounded by mature trees. A testament to the Arts & Crafts ethos and the status of Logie Bank within the village, the lawned gardens are dotted with a stunning collection of stone statues and sculptures. The grounds also house a detached double garage with two stores.
