Gellyknowe Farmhouse was purchased by our clients in 2000 when it was a derelict cottage, thought to date from the late 1700s. Only the front and back walls and the three gable walls were still standing. The restoration project began and the beautiful farmhouse that is now Gellyknowe incorporates those original walls and a traditionally constructed extension. It has a slate roof, a round turret, conservation skylights and is finished internally in a way that is complimentary to the original property.
Internally there are polished timber floors on both the ground and upper floors, matching pine facings, wall lining and doors with latched handles.
Gellyknowe Farmhouse is in a lovely rural location with views out over farmland and open countryside to the Lomond, Benarty, Cleish and Ochil hills beyond.
