Property Description

Full description


This superb 6 bedroom, 3 public room family home has an idyllic semi-rural location some 5 miles from Perth. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens of around 0.9 acres or thereby, it enjoys lovely views over St Martins burn and open countryside beyond. The house was built 16 years ago by an NHBC builder using local stone and blends traditional features with modern design and comfort. It has versatile accommodation, plenty of parking, a detached stone garage and an additional wooden garage.

The accommodation comprises hall, lounge, conservatory, study/bedroom 6, dining room/ bedroom 5, open plan kitchen, family room with dining area, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Situated in the historic Perthshire parish of St Martins it is around 10 minutes drive (6 miles) from the centre of Perth. The area is steeped in history with Scone palace, the ancient coronation site of the Kings of Scotland, only a few miles away. Old maps from the 1800’s show the site of MacBeths castle as being on land close to the house. Positioned on what was the site of the old estate water-powered sawmill the house was newly built some 16 years ago using the original stone from the mill, particularly in the front elevation. It was specifically designed to sympathetically blend into the surrounding grounds and countryside. Being relatively new it has the advantage of the perfect blend of old stone character and modern insulation.

The secluded gardens are extensive and beautifully landscaped with sweeping lawns leading down to the St Martins burn which runs through the grounds. The Burn is spanned by a private bridge which provides access to the extensive grounds sloping to the north of the house. These extend well beyond the main garden offering lovely walks and views as far as Schiehallion over 30 miles away.
