Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1999 on the site of the former farmhouse, Two Mile House is a charming stone house extending to approximately 291 square metres. It is beautifully designed ensuring that the principal reception rooms enjoy the superb views across the Perthshire countryside. Internally the house is presented in immaculate condition and is bright from excellent levels of natural light with the accommodation lying over several levels in line with the local topography. There are four reception rooms providing flexibility for everyday living and formal entertaining. The drawing room has double aspect views with French doors leading onto a rear terrace and front windows overlooking the 18th tee of the Lyndoch golf course.

The kitchen lies to the back of the house and has doors leading out onto a terrace which is ideal for al fresco dining. It has fitted painted cabinets with integrated Neff appliances and space for a breakfasting table. For more formal occasions the dining room lies off the reception hall. Both the drawing room and dining room have glass doors which can be thrown open onto the full height reception hall to create a fabulous entertaining area. There are two further reception rooms on a lower ground level which includes a sitting room and a garden room. The garden room has full height windows and French doors leading onto a good-sized terrace. With the views across the valley, it creates a superb area for evening drinks and outdoor entertaining.

The first floor is accessed by a solid pine staircase and leads to a good-sized master bedroom suite spanning the width of the house. The suite includes a dressing area with fitted wardrobes together with an en-suite shower room with twin sinks. There are two double bedrooms on this level and a family bathroom. Steps lead down to a lower landing where there is a fourth double bedroom, shower room and an office /single bedroom.

A floored attic, accessed by a Ramsay ladder, runs above the first floor providing an additional storage area.

Adjoining the house is a double garage with electric up and over doors. At the back of this building is an integral office / store room with a stable door opening onto the back garden.

The house is approached by a monoblock driveway leading through a pillared entrance with electric iron gates. These can be opened via the intercom system running throughout the house.

Two Mile House enjoys a generous sized garden extending to about 0.36 acres. It is enclosed by a stone wall and has been beautifully landscaped to include herbaceous borders, shrubs, mature trees and a copper beech hedge. With terraces and seating areas surrounding the house, the garden has been thoughtfully designed to capture the sun as it moves around the garden throughout the day.

Two Mile House is situated within a pretty hamlet of six houses at Balcraig, approximately 2.5 miles from Scone. It has an enviable elevated position on the edge of Murrayshall golf course with outstanding views across Scone and up the Tay Valley. Whilst enjoying this rural position, it is within walking distance of the club house and a short drive to the daily amenities found within Scone.

Situated on the outskirts of Perth, Scone has an active local community and a range of shops and amenities including a bank, post office, supermarkets, a nursery, restaurants and an awarding winning butcher. It is home to Scone Palace and Perth Racecourse, both of which provide a variety of events throughout the year.

The City of Perth lies on the banks of the River Tay and offers a comprehensive range of high street shops, cultural opportunities, restaurants, professional services and travel links. It is also within commuting distance of Edinburgh, Dundee, Stirling and Glasgow. The city has a new concert hall, theatre and several art galleries. In addition to local primary and secondary schools, there are a number of private schools in the area, including Glenalmond College, Strathallan, Kilgraston, Craigclowan, Morrisons Academy and Dundee High School.
