DESCRIPTION

Positioned on the banks of the River Tay in its own mature gardens, Greystones sits in a special setting with stunning views and a great sense of privacy.

The accommodation is in need of upgrading but offers great flexibility and is all set on one level.

From the front of the house double doors lead to an entrance hall from where doors radiate to all the main rooms. The reception rooms are set to the east side of the house, linked by interconnecting doors. A door from the hall leads to the kitchen. This has a range of fitted base and wall units and storage cupboards. Appliances include an integrated sink and Neff oven with electric hob over. There are wonderful views to the north overlooking the neighbouring field and the Perthshire countryside beyond. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room. This has windows on two aspects overlooking the garden. A connecting door leads through to the sitting room. This is a generous room which has spectacular south facing views over the front gardens and the River Tay beyond, and further windows overlooking the garden to the west. There is a fireplace inset with an electric fire, with marble surround and decorative mantle.

A corridor from the main hall leads to the three bedrooms, located to the west side of the house.
