'Primrose Lodge' occupies a large, level plot on the outskirts of Carnkie and enjoys an open outlook to the front. Re-built in 2008 the property currently provides spacious three-bedroomed accommodation and the front is set back behind deep level gardens with a driveway providing ample parking in a plot of a third of an acre.   

There is a superbly proportioned living area including a dual aspect lounge and kitchen/dining room.  Further space is available via a concealed staircase leading to the loft, providing three 'areas', two inter-connecting, that have all been plastered with skylights etc, carpeted and light switches 'to complete' - ideal for a multitude of uses.  The enclosed gated rear garden comprises a level lawn and patio and immediately adjacent to the rear of the kitchen/dining room is a large parking area leading to a triple 'tandem' garage and a substantial and traditional constructed (cavity wall construction) detached garage block with two electric roller shutter doors with a doorway and further workshop and storeroom (suitable for conversion into residential accommodation if required and subject to any necessary consents).

Originally used by the present owner to run his car mechanics business on site due to the ample parking and outbuildings available; as the vendors' Sole Agent, we strongly recommend an early viewing appointment is arranged. 

Available with no onward chain and with the benefit of immediate vacant possession.
