Glenkindie House is an attractive Edwardian family house with brick and rendered elevations under a multi pitched tiled roof. There are many attractive features including re-instated fireplaces, picture rails and cornicing. The house was built we understand in 1908 by two Scottish ladies for their own occupation, hence the name. At that time we understand that the house owned much of the surrounding land.
The present owners have carried out a full program of renovation and modernisation since purchasing the house in 2000 to provide elegant and deceptively spacious family accommodation successfully combining the original character with modern living. The house has also been cleverly extended to the side with brick elevations under a leaded roof and a substantial Conservatory added to the rear.
