Property Description

Location

Alloa is a small town just to the north of the River Forth, located about 7.5 miles from Stirling, against the backdrop of the Ochil Hills. The town is about 36 miles from Edinburgh and 33 miles from Glasgow offering good commuting links via the M80 to Glasgow or the M9 to Edinburgh, and to their respective airports. Alloa has a railway station with direct services to Glasgow and Stirling. Nearby Stirling also has a railway station with direct lines to Edinburgh, Glasgow and London.

The town sits on the north bank of the River Forth and like other Hillfoots Villages in Clackmannanshire, Alloa was mainly an industrial town specialising in coal, brewing, glass production and pottery. There are a good range of local amenities including grocery shops, supermarkets, pubs and hotels. There is a wide range of leisure and sporting facilities including a local football team, cricket club, horse riding in the Ochil Hills, sports centre and a wide range of golf courses locally. Primary schooling is available in the town, and Alloa Academy provides secondary schooling. Private schooling is available at Dollar Academy (7 miles) and Fairview International School in Bridge of Allan which offers co-educational independent IB candidate schooling for 5 to 13 year olds.

Stirling, with its historic castle, has an excellent selection of professional, retail and leisure facilities, including primary and secondary schooling, and a Waitrose supermarket. Dunblane (10 miles) and Bridge of Allan (7 miles) both have popular local services, with the latter being the home to Stirling University with its sports centre and the MacRobert Arts Centre with theatre and cinema.

Description

The Old Rectory, once known as St John's Rectory, sits on the quiet residential street of Grange Road, and backs onto, and has its own gate into, the scenic West End Park. The house has a classic Georgian fa�ade, and it is thought to date back to 1840. The accommodation is well-presented throughout, and the appealing layout is well suited to modern family living. The fully enclosed garden to the rear of the house is outstanding and offers beautiful outdoor space as well as privacy.

The front door sits between handsome stone pillars and leads into the entrance porch. There are two principal front facing reception rooms: a sitting room and a dining room. The sitting room has beautiful traditional cornicing and a ceiling rose, working window shutters, and an Aarrow log burner set into a fireplace with decorative marble mantelpiece. The dining room also has an Aarrow log burner, and it opens up into the kitchen, providing a fantastic open-plan area within the home. The kitchen has a window with lovely views of the garden, set behind the Belfast sink. It also features a central island, two pantry cupboards and appliances including a Falcon gas range cooker with an extractor fan over and a Beko dishwasher. The family room sits to the rear of the house and has glass doors which open up into the conservatory. From here, you can walk out onto the decked terrace overlooking the garden. Beyond the kitchen is a spacious utility room which is plumbed for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a useful ground floor shower room off here, and a further door leading into the garden.

The traditional stone staircase with its elegant wrought iron balustrades and wooden banister, leads up from the main entrance hall, onto the first floor landing. There is a large window half way up the stairs, overlooking the garden. Off the landing there are four double bedrooms (one of which is current used as a study), all of which have working window shutters, and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom suite has its own dressing room with fitted wardrobes, and en suite shower room. From here there is access via Ramsay ladder to the attic space.

Gardens

The gardens at The Old Rectory are truly spectacular, and extend to about 0.4 acres in all, with a useful garden shed for storage. The garden is walled, and presents a stunning variety of mature and young trees and shrubs, including a commanding pear tree set in the lawn, and an orchard which includes plum, cherry, apple and pear. There are attractive topiary hedges, and a larger beech hedge which separates the main garden from the orchard and kitchen garden behind. This area of the garden has raised beds and soft fruit including raspberries and strawberries amongst others. A gate set into the wall at the back of the garden leads into the West End Park. The beautiful mature broadleaf trees in the park provide the garden with shelter.

To the front of the house is an in-and-out gravelled driveway with ample parking. A gate to the side of the house opens up to a spacious gravelled area which can provide additional parking if required, and access into the garden.
