Barnbeth Estate is a beautiful Scottish country estate in Renfrewshire with an Arts & Crafts Mansion house at its heart. The property dates from the early 20th century and retains many of its period features including panelling with exquisite carving, and attractive fireplaces.
Accommodation is arranged over two floors, and the principal reception rooms – the drawing room and the sitting room – both have extensive timber panelling, open fireplaces and great views over the gardens.
The spacious fitted kitchen has a four-oven gas Aga and a large walk-in larder; a butler’s pantry has extensive storage, and there is also a wine store and a laundry room. On the first floor the master bedroom suite features a terrific original roll-top bath; there is a guest suite and three further bedrooms are served by a bathroom and a shower room.
Outside, outbuildings include a substantial garage block and workshop with two semi-detached cottages, both of which are currently let.
The stable block has planning consent for conversion to a three-bedroom cottage, while the extensive formal gardens are particularly noteworthy, with sweeping lawns and mature trees, and an enclosed area to the rear of the house. A separate area extends to around 10.5 acres and includes the 6 acre naturally stocked trout pond.
Bridge of Weir is a conservation village in the pretty Renfrewshire countryside with a good range of local shops and services and a primary school. Glasgow Airport is just eight miles and the City centre 17 miles.
The guide price is £1.7m. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 0131 222 9600 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
