Tenure: Freehold

An impressive family house with breathtaking views over the Carse of Gowrie. The property was built in 1987 to an award winning design by architect William J Beatson

Location

Taybank House is in a prime elevated position overlooking the Carse of Gowrie and the River Tay. The area is known for its fertile farmland and temperate climate which is ideal for growing fruit. The property has been built on land which once belonged to the impressive Kinfauns Castle which sits up above Taybank House.

Perth, which has recently achieved City status, is considered one of the most desirable Scottish towns in which to live. It has an excellent range of shops, supermarkets and professional services and is in a pivotal position with motorway and dual carriageway connections to all the major cities of central Scotland. The house is well situated for access to both the town centre and the motorway network. Perth also has a railway station with services to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness.

Recreational opportunities in and around Perth are excellent. Scone Palace, one of Scotland's finest stately homes, is just two miles away. There is National Hunt racing and polo at Scone, which also hosts the Scottish Game Fair. There are numerous good golf courses nearby, including Murrayshall, and Rosemount at Blairgowrie. Perth is a gateway to the Highlands with ample opportunities for hillwalking and skiing at both Glen Shee and Aviemore.

The local primary school is at Kinnoull and there are four secondary schools in the town. There are a good number of private schools nearby including Craigclowan, Strathallan, Glenalmond and Kilgraston, and Morrison's Academy and Ardvreck in Crieff.

Description

Taybank House was built in 1987 to an award winning design by the architect William J Beatson. The property is characterised by its glass frontage which enables all the principal rooms to make the very best of its stunning southerly views.

The property is entered on the lower ground floor where there are two spacious rooms which would be ideal as family or games rooms or even for a gym. There is a wc on this floor.

The remainder of the accommodation is on the first floor where the views can be enjoyed to maximum effect. The formal sitting room is connected to the dining room via a glazed sun room. A particular feature of the kitchen is the dining area which is arranged in front of a window alcove with window seat. Four double bedrooms are situated along the eastern side of the property and include a master bedroom with en suite bedroom, fitted wardrobes and access to the balcony. The parquet flooring and Charles Rennie Mackintosh style internal doors are examples of the quality of finish that was applied when the house was built.

Outside

Taybank House is approached by a bloc paved driveway with neat lawns on either side which leads to parking beside the house. To the rear of the property a pretty gravel pathway winds up through terraced beds which are filled with interesting plants and shrubs. A garden gate at the top provides pedestrian access onto the minor public road that runs between Taybank House and Kinfauns Castle. Immediately behind the house is a drying green and on the western side of the property there is a paved terrace, accessible from the sitting room and ideal for entertaining in good weather.

There is an integrated double garage and a garden store.
