Well proportioned apartments are featured over 2 levels, easily accommodating a growing family.

The well proportioned apartments are laid out over 2 levels, offering flexibility as required – normally utilised as 2/3 Public & 5 Bedrooms. If required, the integral double garage also allows further expansion within the footprint of the existing property (less expensive than add-on accommodation) – subject to required planning permission etc. Internal viewing reveals a comfortable & adaptable family home, comprising on the ground floor, the reception hall with useful “downstairs” wc off, bay windowed lounge to the front with a separate dining room to the rear featuring connecting “French style” doors, also to the rear a semi open-plan style integrated kitchen/dining/breakfasting room (patio doors from here onto private rear gardens) with a useful separate utility room (access from here to the integral double garage). All the bedrooms, easily accommodating a growing family, are featured on the upper level with a staircase from the reception hall leading to the upper hallway – the master bedroom (No 5) to the front with en-suite whilst bedroom No 1 (presently a large games room) is a large bedroom which could easily be utilised as a childrens living/games room or teenager’s bedroom/living room, 3 further bedrooms are located to the rear (Nos 2, 3 & 4) with bedroom No 2 featuring an en-suite. The main bathroom is also situated on the upper level. The specification includes both gas central heating and double glazing. Private gardens are featured to the front & rear, neatly presented/landscaped with the rear fenced for privacy providing a safe/enclosed child-friendly play area or outdoor space in which to relax on better weather days. The private driveway provides off-street parking for several vehicles whilst also leading to a much-valued integral double garage which provides secure parking/storage. A wonderful Summer House is located within the rear garden allowing one to enjoy sheltered outdoor time, either to relax or entertain. In our view… of huge appeal to those clients seeking a larger Modern Luxury Style Detached Home with the flexibility to accommodate an existing/growing family or provide more space in which to entertain/enjoy, support homeworking etc. To discuss your interest in No 51 Doonvale Drive please contact Graeme Lumsden, our Director/Valuer, who is handling this particular sale – 01292 283606 or gpl@blackhay.co.uk  Internal Viewing is invited by contacting BLACK HAY ESTATE AGENTS on 01292 283606.

This delightful Character Home has been occupied by its present owner since the late 1970’s, with the owner having enhanced the energy efficiency of the property by way of insulation/solar panel heating etc whilst the expansive garden has been a much enjoyed labour of love with an emphasis on eco friendly/organic/productivity together with its undoubted attraction as a magical environment for children to explore & play hide n’ seek with the garden wildlife.
