Fully modernised Victorian farmhouse with superb views, beautiful gardens and a paddock. Total of 4.77 acres.

Location

Meikle Obney Farmhouse is set in beautiful south east facing gardens and grounds in a rural setting close to the village of Bankfoot and the hamlet of Waterloo. The origin of the name Waterloo is thought to be from the settling of soldiers returning from the Battle of Waterloo, however others believe it was built for the widows of the soldiers who did not return from the front. Bankfoot provides day to day requirements including a primary school, with a wider range of facilities available in Perth, 11 miles away. Perth also has an excellent range of shops, professional services and leisure facilities.

There is a good selection of private schools in the area including Strathallan, Craigclowan, Kilgraston and Glenalmond. Perthshire is well known for its field sports and golf, with nearby courses at Murrayshall, Perth and Dunkeld. Also within easy reach are Gleneagles, which was home to the 2014 Ryder Cup, Rosemount and St Andrews.

Perth is centrally located with easy access to the motorway network. Mainline train services are available at Dunkeld and Perth.

Description

Meikle Obney House is a superb Victorian farmhouse which has been fully upgraded and renovated by the current owners to provide exceptional accommodation throughout. It now offers an appealing combination of contemporary yet country living space. The house has been finished to an exacting standard and retains an abundance of traditional features throughout.

Situated off the entrance hall are the principal reception rooms. The drawing room has large windows overlooking the front and north gardens and features an open fireplace with [ ] surround and mantelpiece, a traditional style press and solid wood flooring which is common throughout the ground floor. The dining room has a traditional press in the corner and a door leading through to the kitchen / breakfast room. This is a superb room with high quality appliances including two Fisher & Paykel drawer dishwashers, fridge freezer, electric Rangemaster with gas hobs over (fuelled by LPG tank) and an integrated Belfast sink. There is a range of base and wall units with granite work surfaces, and, despite the sleek fitted finish, the kitchen still displays plenty of traditional character in keeping with the period of the house. There are windows overlooking the hills to the rear of the house and double doors leading out onto the south and west facing patio.

Situated off the entrance hall there is also a family room. This has an open fireplace with white painted surround and mantelpiece and a traditional press. A corridor at the rear leads to a door out to the back of the house and the utility room with fitted units with solid wooden work surfaces and an integrated stainless steel sink. Beyond this there is a study as well as a separate cloakroom with WC, wash hand basin and hot water tank cupboard.

The staircase leads up from the main entrance hall and is overlooked by a large window which floods the space with natural light. All the bedrooms and the bathroom are set off a landing at the top. The master bedroom suite has a fantastic outlook to the south east over the neighbouring countryside and towards the hills beyond. It has an en suite shower room with WC, twin wash hand basins and shower cubicle. There is a further en suite bedroom again with stunning views to the south east as well as a dressing room and en suite shower room with WC, wash hand basin and shower cubicle which were installed in 2015. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside

The driveway to Meikle Obney House passes through wrought iron gates before sweeping through the north gardens between a range of mature trees and rhododendrons up to the rear of the house where there is a brick built garage and carport with coal store to the side. The drive continues around to the front where there is ample space for parking.

The principal gardens are situated to both the front and rear of the house. They are fully surrounded by established shrubs and hedges with a variety of mature coniferous and broadleaf trees giving it a lovely rural setting. Both gardens are largely laid to lawn. To the side of the house there is a paved terrace which is accessed from the double doors to the kitchen and which is the perfect place for alfresco entertaining in the warmer months. Surrounding this area is a beautiful collection of miniature hedges. Archways in the large hedges provide spectacular south and east facing views over the rolling fields towards the hills beyond.

To the north of Meikle Obney House there is a paddock which extends to about 4 acres in size.
