the kitchen de­sign,” said San­dra.

“They wanted more open-plan space and some­where to en­ter­tain.”

A grand stair­case with a large fea­ture win­dow on the half land­ing leads to the first floor.

Num­ber 28 also of­fers a hearty dose of in­trigue, thanks to a con­cealed stair­case which pro­vides ac­cess to the at­tic.

“This stair­case was pretty pop­u­lar with all the kids and this is a bril­liant house for hide and seek,” said San­dra.

In­trigue aside, you’ll find four gen­er­ous dou­ble bed­rooms, along­side a sin­gle bed­room which could be used as a nurs­ery or of­fice.

“My mum used the sin­gle room as an of­fice. My daugh­ter de­scribed her as the of­fi­cial ma­tri­arch of the fam­ily,” said San­dra.

“She trained as a nurse and, af­ter rais­ing a fam­ily, she was very in­volved with the busi­ness.”

There is also a shower and fam­ily bath­room.

The maid’s quar­ters could be used as a self­con­tained first-floor apart­ment and boast a bed­room and sit­ting room – in use as a games room.

The gar­dens have been beau­ti­fully main­tained and are fully en­closed to the rear, com­plete with peren­ni­als, roses and trees.

There are raised beds with a gran­ite re­tain­ing wall and a paved pa­tio of­fers al­fresco din­ing.

A gate pro­vides ac­cess to the private Ru­bis­law Den Poli­cies, where you’ll find 14 acres of beau­ti­ful wood­land.

“We’re feel­ing re­ally sad about leav­ing, as this has been home for so long,” said San­dra.

“We have so many happy mem­o­ries, it’s time to let some­one else be­come part of the his­tory of num­ber 28.”

Of­fers should be made of more than £1,100,000.
