Pedmyre House is a historic gated family home set within extensive, tranquil and picturesque grounds, accessed by tree lined lane, commanding views over the surrounding countryside.
Situated in the heart of Carmunnock, it has been lovingly renovated, and re-modelled resulting in a truly unique home inside and out. As well as a beautiful interior with an array of exceptionally comfortable living spaces, there are several outhouses including a gym, garaging for three cars, a wine cellar, hot tub and gazebo.
The original portion of the house dates back to the 1400s, and saw Mary Queen of Scots as one of its houseguests. The remainder has been expertly extended and lovingly remodelled to produce what stands there today.
Pedmyre House is principally built of stone under a pitched slate roof and with two side wing extensions and provides flexible accommodation with many of the principal apartments oriented to enjoy the views over the surrounding countryside and lovely garden grounds.
The principal accommodation is formed over two levels with attic, extending to nearly 3000 Sqft and comprises:
Ground Floor: Entrance vestibule, reception hallway opening to a stunning drawing room with two sets of French doors onto the garden and patio. Comfortable and cosy sitting room with affording access to East wing. Formal dining room with lime stone tiled floor and French doors to patio and gardens. Bespoke dining kitchen with historic touches such as exposed beams and a traditional Aga. This spacious, light filled room is large enough for both a breakfast bar area and a large family table next to pretty French doors, which open out onto the patio overlooking the vast expanse of garden. Inner hall separate utility room and cloakroom. The East wing would perfectly lend itself to separate living quarters, From the hallway off the sitting room, there is a large double bedroom, fully fitted bathroom and another spacious bedroom which could be used as either a further generously proportioned bedroom or additional sitting room.
First Floor: The main feature of the first floor is the sumptuous master bedroom which has a wall mounted fireplace and enough room for a comfortable seating area. Off the master bedroom is a generous sized dressing room with fitted wardrobes and dressing area. This leads to a large ensuite bathroom.
Second Floor: From the dressing room is a unique carpeted spiral staircase. The ‘attic’ is currently used as a gym and storage and would lend itself to a home office or additional bedroom.
The grounds of Pedmyre House are what truly set this property apart from any other home in the area. It has approximately 2.5 acres or thereby of beautifully manicured gardens including a pretty yet very large low stone-walled duck pond and duck house on a central island, which can be seen as you drive into the property.
There is a burn running across the front of the property, and the current owners have installed three picturesque bridges, over which you can cross over to the duck pond and adjoining woods. The two sunken gardens provide the perfect opportunity to install flower beds or an herb garden.
Adjacent to the West wing, there are two outhouses. One is the original stone ivy-covered ‘garage’ which now houses the central heating system, a storage area, the wine cellar with a sink, dehumidifier and tasting area, and a Gardner’s WC.
As you pass a mirrored water feature you will come to a newly built two-story garage. On the ground floor is space to accommodate three cars. Through a side entrance there is a solid maple staircase leading up to a fully fitted gym, shower room and kitchen. This is large enough to be converted into a self-contained flat, home office, or a child’s snug and playroom. It has maple wood flooring, two separate lighting systems, electronic Velux windows, a fully fitted kitchen and shower room. In addition it has large double doors and small Paris style balcony affording views of the gardens, hot tub and woods beyond.
Features include Sonos sound system throughout, lighting system, a sophisticated security CCTV system and interior/exterior perimeter alarm, and two efficient heating systems with the added advantage of back up water tanks in place.
