Boasting an extensive plot and a contemporary design centred on the interplay of space and light, this exclusive architect-designed, four-bedroom modern detached bungalow offers an idyllic rural lifestyle in the picturesque hamlet of Finavon.
Situated in the idyllic Angus countryside, just north of the city of Dundee, the property and plot represent a rare opportunity to add direct input into the continued development of a spectacular family home. The development is well under construction, with the stylish exterior finished and the interiors and driveway awaiting completion, allowing new buyers the chance to have involvement and the final say with the styling and finish. The bespoke property boasts an expansive floorplan for a luxurious, contemporary rural lifestyle with four bedrooms, three bathrooms (plus a WC), and two reception rooms, in addition to an expansive driveway, a double garage, and wraparound garden grounds.
With a desirable approach, the home enjoys a peaceful and private setting flanked by matures trees for privacy. The bespoke design has instant kerb appeal, with apex roofs and a sophisticated frontage defined by grey stonework and white render. It has an ideal position to capture the lush, leafy green outlook and oversized glazing to make the most of the views and warm sunlight. The covered front entrance opens into a broad reception hall for greeting visitors, leading directly ahead into the living room. With exacting proportions, this room offers the ideal space for modern family living, incorporating French doors to the garden for a sociable indoor/outdoor flow of accommodation perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The open-plan kitchen, dining, and family room forms another outstanding reception area with a stunning outlook framed by full-height windows, which span from the floor to the apex roofline for added architectural character and an abundance of natural light. Additional glazing creates an airy dual-aspect, whilst the exceptional footprint assures this open-plan space will be utilised as the contemporary heart of the home. A state-of-the-art German kitchen would look perfectly at home in this setting, adding to the statement design. A separate utility room and store neighbours the kitchen creating a discreet laundry area.
The bespoke family home comes with four generously proportioned bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts French doors to the garden, in addition to a sizeable dressing room and a luxurious en-suite, configured for two washbasins, a shower, and a WC. The second double bedroom also enjoys its own en-suite shower room and a built-in wardrobe. A third double bedroom offers storage, whilst a spacious single bedroom has versatile proportions to suit a variety of needs, such as a home office. A family bathroom plumbed for a four-piece suite and a separate WC complete the accommodation on offer. A solar-panelled roof, triple glazing, and oil-fired central heating ensure an optimal living environment and efficient energy bills all year round.
Externally, vast garden grounds wraparound the house, with the tranquil waters of Lemmo Burn coursing through the northern side of the land for added scenic beauty. It awaits a turfed lawn, but already the potential is apparent for an outdoor haven for alfresco dining. Extensive parking for multiple cars is available with an attached double garage and a large driveway.
