Tombrake Farm Steading was developed, approximately 13 years ago, into seven quality homes, the Farmhouse being the only Detached House. It is located on the northerly fringe of the village, past Balfron Golf Course, and it affords stunning views over immediate and distant countryside taking in the Fintry Hills and westerly towards the horizon of the Kilpatricks and the Munro summits that surround Loch Lomond. Since the original seven units were created, two further detached houses have been built, by private commission, all accessed via impressive entrance gates in a fine stone wall making ‘Tombrake’ a rather charming clachan of homes, and place to live.

The Farmhouse is a fine Scots red sandstone Detached Villa of a generous scale, set under a handsome slate roof. All has been renewed, at the time of refurbishment, to afford contemporary living and all the ease that this provides, within the exterior character of the original building.  It is a fine family home (Balfron noted for its School Campus) that provides, if needed, five bedrooms, three of which have en-suite shower rooms.

As clients will see from our imagery, and the floor plan, the property has a good array of rooms including a formal, open plan, lounge, and dining room along with a more informal family living room adjacent to a large kitchen with centre island. Windows are double glazed, as are external doors, with timber frames and there is a gas central heating system with a Vaillant Combination Boiler operating via radiators (chrome radiators featured in the en-suites, bathroom, and WC), fed by Tombrake’s LPG (liquid propane gas) communal tank. Sanitaryware is all white and all showers are thermostatic. The kitchen has a compliment of integrated kitchen appliances, and the house is alarmed. Outside s a large, almost full double, detached garage with power, light and a remote-controlled garage door. Drainage is private -we believe to a communal bio-disc system.

The property’s garden lies mainly to grass and features handsome original stone boundary walls. Pathways and patios are stone slabbed and there is a gravel drive and parking area. The rear garden is gated, for children, and can be accessed directly from the French doors in the living room. Our clients have loved living here and it is only a job relocation prompting the move.
