Full Description: SOLD - Beautiful Medieval Church, sympathetically converted into a lovely, unique home with many original features, in a stunning rural location in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. Converted into a detached house, all on one level, in 2007. Arched double-doors lead into a Victorian tiled entrance porch with 12th century roundel set into the window-sill. Another arched door takes you into the large open plan kitchen/dining room with solid beech units, granite worktops and a Rangemaster double-oven stove. The property has four double bedrooms, three of which have large built-in double wardrobes, and the master bedroom has an attractive en-suite shower room. There is also a large family bathroom with freestanding-bath and a utility room plumbed for a washer/dryer. There is a wonderful stained glass window and three large Medieval Windows, letting in lots of natural light (in the sitting-room, master bedroom and bedroom two/study; all South facing). Partially timber panelled walls, vaulted wooden ceilings and beautiful, arched leaded-light windows throughout. There is a large garden area off to the side of the property and ample off-road parking. Plenty of space is available for extra rooms to be built above the present living accommodation and in the large attic space (subject to the appropriate planning approval). The property benefits from oil-fired central heating and mains electricity. All carpets are included in the sale. This church has a really lovely atmosphere, is very peaceful and has no ghosts! From the front door, you can see the old ruined castle which dates back to about the 12th century. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and yet you are only 5 1/2 miles from Biggar, 10 miles from Lanark and about three quarters of an hour from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Peebles. It is also within easy driving distance of the M6. Around the church is a beautifully maintained historic graveyard, looked after by the local council. There is an old Medieval doorway (now filled-in) containing an original coat-of-arms in an area to the right of the present entrance, and another coat of arms set into the East end of the church. There are also two wonderful Medieval arched stone recesses in the sitting-room, which would look wonderful opened-up as features, to show more of the original character of the property.
