SET in around an acre of garden grounds, Fairview House is a substantial five-bedroomed detached villa – one of only six similarly impressive homes that form an exclusive niche development on the site of the original Dunmore Potteries, close to both Dunmore village and the town of Larbert in Stirlingshire.

Built in 2002, Fairview House includes an indoor, tiled swimming pool, shower/changing room, and sauna, while outside, a detached triple garage provides self-contained annexe/living accommodation (currently used as office space) and part of the garden serves as a par-three golf hole.

The property also has excellent eco credentials, including two air source heat pumps along with a sophisticated solar and battery storage systems, which ensure maximum energy efficiency with average running costs of approximately £450pcm including pool costs. Other key features include CCTV/alarm system and high-speed internet.

The ground floor layout features a split-level reception hall leading to a front-facing lounge, adjoining formal dining room with French doors to the garden and steps up to a 21ft fully fitted/integrated breakfasting kitchen, utility, family sitting room, bespoke study/home office with fitted furniture, and rear hall access to the shower/sauna suite and 39ft indoor swimming pool and plant room.

Upstairs are five particularly spacious bedrooms – three en suite excluding the luxuriously appointed 25ft master suite which includes a balcony, dressing room with expansive built-in storage, and en suite shower room – and main family bathroom. With bath and separate shower. A nice addition, the first-floor landing has front-facing French doors onto an additional balcony positioned above the entrance porch.

Too many to mention, standout features include oak doors and finishes throughout, porcelain tiled floors, sleek, high-end kitchen units, and large central island/breakfast bar.

Fairview House is access via electric gates and a monobloc driveway/parking area to the front – the enclosed rear garden incorporates a decked area with raised planters, built-in firepit, electric points and lighting, while the main part of the garden provides a pitch and putt golf hole, plus vegetable beds, garden shed and greenhouse. The detached triple garage/annexe accommodation has separate gated access to the driveway.

The local area is well-served by amenities including schooling at nursery and primary level, with secondary schools in both Larbert and Stirling. The Dunmore Estate has beautiful walks and quirky attractions such as the ruined Elphinstone Tower, and the famous Pineapple folly. The area is also well served with road links to the M876 to Glasgow and M9 to Edinburgh – a rail service is also easily accessible in Larbert.

A future-proofed family home with built-in golf/fitness facilities, Fairview House is for sale with Halliday Homes at offers over £895,000.
