Fantastic Edwardian Country House

Location

Coupar Grange occupies an elevated position in over 34 acres of its own grounds in a loop of the rivers Isla and Ericht. The views to the south over the River Isla and the farmland of the Vale of Strathmore to the Sidlaw Hills are absolutely superb.

The house is midway between Blairgowrie and Coupar Angus and is well placed for road accessibility: the A94 through Coupar Angus connects Perth to Forfar and the main Dundee to Aberdeen road (A90). Perth is only 20 miles away and has a motorway connection to Edinburgh. Dundee Airport has services to London City Airport, Birmingham and Belfast and a railway station on the main east coast line.

Coupar Angus has good local facilities. Blairgowrie and Forfar provide a more extensive range of shops and professional services while the larger towns of Perth and Dundee are within easy reach. There are a number of public schools in the area including Glenalmond, Strathallan, Kilgraston (girls), Dundee High School and St Leonards. Prep schools include Craigclowan, Ardvreck and St Leonards-New Park.

The recreational opportunities in the area are excellent. There is grouse shooting and stalking on nearby estates and fishing on the rivers Tay, Isla and Ericht. There are a number of good pheasant shoots nearby. Both national hunt racing and polo take place at Scone on the near side of Perth. Blairgowrie Golf Club has two championship courses and the Open Championship venues of Carnoustie and St Andrews are both within easy reach.

Description

Coupar Grange is an Edwardian country house which was designed by the architect James Miller in the English Jacobean style. It is reminiscent of Turnberry Hotel, his most notable design. It dates from around 1902 and is listed Category B.

The house and Coach House are almost entirely in their original form with the exception of the addition of the billiards room in 2001. The house has been well maintained and is an attractive and manageable modern day family home.

Accommodation

The house is well laid out and is rich in period, decorative features. The hall is oak panelled and has marble floor tiles with an oak staircase with mullioned stained glass. There is an ornate stone mantel above the hall fireplace with a large solid fuel stove.

The impressive drawing room has a moulded ceiling incorporating numerous decorative finials; dado panelling and arched recessed open fireplace. The dining room is also extensively panelled with an impressive oak mantel and a connecting door to the Edwardian conservatory which has a marble tiled floor and slate shelves.

The billiards room has been added to the side and has a WC beside. Off the back hall is a sitting room, a gun room and a utility room. To the rear is a large fitted kitchen with Aga and adjoining larder.

The first floor landing gives access to the master bedroom which has an adjoining study and an original bathroom with extensive marble tiling. There are three further bedrooms off the main landing and three more off a corridor to the back stairs. These bedrooms are served by two shower rooms and a bathroom.

The sellers have carried out extensive renovation works over the past 20 years. These include rewiring, re-plumbing and upgrading of the central heating system, upgrading the kitchen and bathroom fittings, re-tiling of roof and redecoration. More recently a ground source heating system has been installed as the primary heat source with the original oil-fired system as a back up. This has substantially reduced the energy costs of the house.

Coach House Outbuildings

The Coach House and adjoining outbuildings form a 'L' shaped range in a matching style to Coupar Grange House. These buildings form a Courtyard to the rear of the house.

The outbuildings comprise a pine panelled games room, a double garage with covered external wash bay, a log store, former stables and an original laundry.

To the east there are additional buildings comprising stables, kennels and a room which has been used as an estate office.

Cottage

The cottage adjoins the coach house but faces into its own garden to the north and therefore does not compromise the privacy of the main house.

Its accommodation comprises a hall, sitting room, bathroom, kitchen with floor and wall units and solid fuel stove. Two bedrooms with partly coombed ceilings. Heating from fireplace, solid fuel stove and electric storage and panel heaters.


Grounds

The grounds extend to over 34 acres and provide an established setting for Coupar Grange House.

Decorative wrought iron gates open onto a long drive tree lined drive with wrought iron railing fences. There is an area of woodland immediately behind the house. A gate leads through a stone wall to the front garden.

In front of the house there are level lawns with flower and herbaceous borders. Steps lead down to a substantial lower lawn enclosed by yew hedging and with a solar powered water fountain framed within an opening in the yew hedge.

Below this lawn is an arboretum which has been lovingly created and developed to a professional design by Moorpark Horticultural Consultants. The Arboretum features over 300 species of trees and shrubs, strategically planted around an ornamental pond with a wooden deck area. Areas of mown grass and rough grass are interspersed with beech, western hemlock and mixed native hedges and by plantings of individual broadleaved and conifer trees along with extensive block shrub planting. The Arboretum is south facing and the River Isla lies beyond.

To the west of the house is the original walled garden with an all-weather tennis court and summer house; an apple orchard with over 40 varieties of apple trees, an azalea garden and further areas of lawns enclosed by established hedging and shrub planting.
