A superbly finished contemporary family home situated in an elevated position within mature gardens above Grandtully and the River Tay.

Location

Torr Darroch has a stunning elevated setting in the charming Perthshire village of Grandtully. The property sits on the south side of the River Tay and has beautiful views over the river through the surrounding trees in the winter months and fantastic privacy. The location has a wonderful rural feel to it despite being situated above the village and a short walk into the centre. Access from the north and south is excellent with the A9 being only 5 miles away.

The village of Grandtully is delightful and sits on the banks of the River Tay. It has a primary school, coffee shop, and a B&B / restaurant / bar called The Inn On The Tay. There is also access to a range of outdoor activities. The village of Strathtay is less than half a mile away on the north side of the River Tay, and has a village shop / post office and an attractive nine hole golf course. The surrounding countryside is majestic with green fields interspersed with woodlands, and then more rugged, spectacular heather-clad hills rising high above to the dramatic heights of Schiehallion and Ben Chonzie. Within the immediate vicinity is the Balnaguard Glen which is a wonderful juniper woodland and has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is host to an array of plant life and wildlife. Despite its situation in the rural village of Grandtully, Torr Darroch is readily accessible. The nearby towns of Aberfeldy (10 miles) and Pitlochry (10 miles) offer a wide range of schools, shops and services. Pitlochry also has a railway station on the main line from Inverness to London and is served by the ScotRail Caledonian Sleeper service. The city of Perth is 27 miles away and offers all the amenities and professional services expected. The A9 is the main route into the Highlands and has stretches of dual carriageway between Ballinluig and Perth where it links with the M90 south to Edinburgh. Edinburgh International Airport is on the near side of the city.

Description

Torr Darroch is an individual new-build property which was completed in the autumn of 2014. The house is finished to an extremely high standard with a superb range of contemporary fixtures and fittings. It sits in a mature woodland setting above the village, with grounds extending to approximately 1.2 acres. In the autumn and winter months there are wonderful views of the River Tay through the neighbouring woodland.

ACCOMMODATION

The front door leads into the entrance porch off which there are two storage cupboards. One houses the hot water boiler and the other stores the electrical systems. A further partially glazed inner door leads into the entrance hall. The ground floor has Egyptian limestone throughout and underfloor heating. The superb kitchen / dining / family room provides stunning views to the north overlooking Grandtully and the mature gardens to the front of the house. The kitchen area is fitted with a superb bespoke and individual Tom Howley installation with a large central island with an integrated sink and marble surfaces. Integrated appliances include a Britannia LPG gas double oven with five hobs and a warming plate above. Others include a Fisher & Paykel fridge freezer and a Miele coffee machine and dishwasher. The far end of the room is bow-ended and makes for an excellent family / TV area.

Also off the lower ground floor entrance hall there is a ground floor shower room and a utility room beyond. This is fitted with Howdens kitchen units and solid wood work surfaces. The utility room is plumbed for a tumble dryer and washing machine and also features an integrated Belfast sink. A door leads through to the boot room which has further doors leading out to the front of the house and into the integral triple garage.

A solid oak staircase leads up from the entrance hall to the ground floor above. At the top of the stairs is a fantastic open plan reception hall with solid oak flooring and a central staircase with glass sides up to the floor above. This could also be a dining area. It also opens through to the magnificent double height drawing room. From here there are fantastic views to the west and south over the garden and the neighbouring countryside. A log-burning stove is set within a hand-built decorative stone surround and mantle. This is part of the exposed Burntisland stone wall feature with large windows to either side. Situated off the reception hall is the office / sitting room. This has double doors leading out onto a balcony providing lovely views to the south and east. There are further windows to the west and a fitted Sony cinema projector system which can be made available subject to separate negotiation. Across the hall is the master bedroom suite. This has windows to the east and west, an en suite bathroom with marble flooring and tiling, twin wash hand basins, WC, bath and double-sized shower cubicle. The master bedroom also has a large walk-in wardrobe with fitted hanging rails and shelves. Also situated off the landing are two generous storage cupboards which also contain the hot water tanks.

The hand-built solid oak staircase leading up to the first floor above is an impressive feature within Torr Darroch as it splits at a halfway point before two separate stairs lead up to the floor above. At the top there is a galleried landing overlooking the drawing room below and with Velux windows to the east providing views. Off here there are three further en suite bedrooms. The largest has wonderful views to the front and rear of the house and in the winter months a superb outlook over the River Tay through the trees. The dormer windows provide an abundance of natural light and there is a separate en suite bathroom with WC, wash hand basin, bath and separate shower cubicle. Of the two further bedrooms, one faces east and the other west. One has an en suite shower room and the other an en suite bathroom with traditional-style overhanging shower.

Outside

A pillared entrance set within a stone wall gives access to the driveway which sweeps up through the front gardens to the front of Torr Darroch. The house sits on an elevated mount which was thought to be the excavated earth dug up during the construction of the railway which opened in the mid 19th century and closed in 1965.

There are two separate parking areas, one at the bottom of the drive and the other to the front of the house. Here there is direct access into the integral garage which has three electric up and over doors and access into the house. The gardens to the front have been landscaped by Alex Butter featuring a range of well-stocked terraced flower beds and a range of fully grown pine trees providing excellent privacy. The garden to the rear is predominantly laid to lawn and there is a fantastic flagstoned terrace which is an ideal outdoor space for entertaining guests and hosting barbeques.
