South Kinaldy House is steeped in character throughout and seamlessly blends traditional with contemporary so is sure to appeal to those with either taste. There are many notable features but this is one property that really needs to be viewed to fully appreciate what is on offer.
The mature garden is real feature of South Kinaldy House. It has been lovingly created over the years to take advantage of its position and to provide a number of distinct areas each with its own character. To the rear is a large area of lawn surrounded by raised borders planted with a large selection of shrubs and perennial flowers and bulbs designed to create a country cottage-style look. Many shrubs and trees have been planted to provide maximum privacy and shelter as well as creating a pretty backdrop.
Accessed directly from the lounge is a sizeable patio, which effectively brings the garden into the house and provides an idyllic place to relax on sunny days, and several other patios are dotted around the garden. A network of paths meander through and around the formal garden, and through the large area of intentionally wild organic woodland meadow and large pond. There are raised vegetable/herb beds, a storage shed, a chicken shed and large walk-in Omlet run inside the walled garden, and a further fenced and netted coup enclosure near the pond. There is a large, original whinstone wash bay area which provides parking for several vehicles and iron gates give access to a long driveway, further parking and private entrance into the laundry/utility/kitchen area at the back of the house and meadow ar
