Location

Kilmorigh Cottage is a delightful, traditional stone and slate cottage, set in a small hamlet between the popular and historic towns of Pitlochry and Dunkeld, within the heart of Highland Perthshire. The original settlement at Kindallachan is believed to be several centuries old, and there are a number of ancient standing stones in the wider area.

Pitlochry is a popular and attractive Victorian spa town with a superb range of individual shops. There is a full range of local services including banks, a post office, a supermarket and petrol station, doctors surgery and cottage hospital. Pitlochry also offers the renowned Festival Theatre, the Dam and salmon Fish Ladder, two distilleries and several popular hotels and restaurants.

The historic burgh of Dunkeld also has a range of local services, including a doctor's surgery, chemist, butchers, delicatessen, and shops, and is well known for its well preserved historic architecture, including the Cathedral and the National Trust Little Houses.

Local schools can be found in both Pitlochry and Dunkeld.

Description

Kilmorigh Cottage is a traditional single storey detached cottage, set within its own landscaped gardens, within this small rural settlement. It has been stylishly refurbished, yet retains much of its original character. Built predominantly of stone under a pitched slate roof, the original cottage dates from 1870 and was substantially extended in 2003, using materials such as stone and slate to retain the original character and charm, to create this comfortable and well proportioned home, ideal for those seeking a rural lifestyle.

ACCOMMODATION

The cottage is approached via a driveway leading from the main road. A wrought iron gate and two steps at the front of the house lead to the front door. Here is a central hall, with doors to the left and right leading off to the kitchen, a shower room, and reception rooms.

The farmhouse-styled kitchen has a range of fitted pine units, Belfast sink, integrated appliances including dishwasher and a large central island that serves as both work surface and breakfast bar. There is a 4 oven Aga, maintained under service contract, and two separate halogen hobs. Windows on three sides overlook the garden. In the ceiling is a hatch and loft ladder leading to three small attic rooms within the roof space; the boiler, water tank and electric meters are located in the first of these.

The first reception room (currently used as a dining room) has windows to the west and north, and solid beech flooring. A fireplace with Charles Rennie Mackintosh slate hearth surround provides a decorative focal point. A step down to the next reception room (used as a sitting room), also with beech flooring, has French doors leading to the side garden.

An arched door from the first reception leads to two steps and a rear hall. The hall has a door to the rear garden. Further doors lead to the two double bedrooms and bathroom, and a utility room/ closet.

The first bedroom has a window to the northern side of the house, and a built in bookshelves along one wall. The master bedroom has a generous fitted wardrobe, a window to the east side of the house and French doors leading out into a back garden courtyard.

The family bathroom has a window overlooking the garden and reclaimed fixtures including a free standing roll top bath.

The utility closet room contains a washing machine with integrated dryer, and wide shelves offering good storage space. A ceiling opening provides a wooden loft ladder up to an extensive, floored and illuminated attic space, providing excellent storage and opportunity for further extension.

There are television, telephone and internet points in the kitchen, both reception rooms, and both bedrooms.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

The landscaped gardens at Kilmorigh Cottage are a particularly delightful feature, set within enclosed perimeter fencing and predominantly laid to lawn. To the front, side and rear of the house is a charming pattern of gravelled paths, paving, stone walls and raised beds, offset by the natural stonework of the cottage. Planting includes a mixture of shrubs, trees and herbaceous plants designed to provide year round interest.

With access from the main bedroom and rear door is a sheltered courtyard area. Adjacent to this is an Arctic hot tub, bordered by a raised bank providing shelter and privacy. Beyond this is an area of lawn and a garden shed. To the west of the house is a further raised grassed sweep of lawn with a greenhouse.
