Dalmhor House was built as a private home and subsequently became one of the boarding houses of Morrison’s Academy. The school extended the property, adding staff
accommodation, additional bedrooms, cloakrooms and the necessary fire escapes.
The house is now surplus to requirements and offers a superb opportunity to create a very special home in one of Crieff’s prime residential areas.
Dalmhor House is approached by a curving drive leading to the south of the property. Dalmhor is a superb stone-built house beneath a slate roof with large well-proportioned rooms reflecting the style and grandeur of the period. Despite having been used as part of a school, the house retains many of its original features with decorative painted glass, stained glass panels, timber panelling, large fireplaces, intricate cornicing and ceiling roses, sash-and-case windows and an attractive staircase.
To the south of the house, the traditional stone and slate Coach House provides additional accommodation and storage.
Dalmhor House lies to the north of Crieff town centre surrounded by traditional stone villas and the Crieff Hydro Hotel to the north. The house has direct road frontage to Ewanfield.
Crieff lies in the heart of Perthshire and has excellent facilities including two supermarkets, a wide range of independent shops, a cottage hospital, two primary schools, a secondary
school, two independent schools (Morrison’s Academy and Ardvreck), a health centre, banks and the usual professional service firms.
The recreational facilities within the town include a new leisure centre with a swimming pool and gym, Crieff Golf Club and tennis courts. The Crieff Hydro Hotel offers members access to its swimming pools, equestrian centre, golf course, tennis courts and additional leisure facilities.
Perth lies about 17 miles to the east and offers a more extensive range of facilities including a cinema, theatre and concert hall. There are mainline railway stations at Perth and Gleneagles along with access to the M90 motorway.
The principal garden lies to the north of the house and is enclosed by a stone wall and screened by trees. The garden, which is down to grass, previously included a grass tennis court.
