5 bedroom detached house for saleThe Beeches, 132 Perth Road, Blairgowrie, Perthshire , PH10 6EQ
Fixed Price £260,000
Full descriptionThe Beeches is a substantial detached Victorian villa, occupying a large corner site, which was extensively reconstructed and expanded in 1972. The main part of the house was built in red sandstone and the rear extension in double brick with harled finish.
Offering very generous and versatile accommodation spread over two floors, this 5/6 bedroom detached home in the residential west end of Blairgowrie benefits from large garden grounds part-enclosed by a stone wall, plenty of parking, double garage and gas central heating. The basics of the Victorian house - high ceilings, large windows, impressive room proportions and walk-in cupboards - have been retained, and the later extension, which includes a master bedroom, modern kitchen area and hallway, remain sympathetic to this original style. In structural terms the house has been very well maintained, although elements would benefit from a degree of modernisation and this has been reflected in the price (the Home Report values the property at £300,000). The property offers potential purchasers the opportunity to decorate to individual tastes and to create a notably spacious family home. The size of the grounds and position of the property also offers excellent potential for extending/development, subject to the necessary permissions. It takes a long time to truly explore this house and a viewing is highly recommended.
Ground floor accommodation: Entrance porch, reception hall with storage space and stairs to upper level, large lounge with bright double aspect including front-facing bay window, pleasant sitting room with front-facing bay window, dining room, large kitchen with access into a utility room/larder, rear hallway with access into the double garage, shower room and a study.
First floor: Upper landing with useful store room, very spacious master bedroom with en-suite WC, four double bedrooms, a single bedroom/study, family bathroom and separate shower room.
The property sits centrally within the large grounds and is privately enclosed by stone walls, mature hedging and trees. To the rear is a gated entrance leading onto a driveway providing a wealth of off-street parking and also leading to the double garage. The garden consists of generous areas of lawn, graveled patio, a pond, a shed, a greenhouse, flowerbeds, shrubs and trees.
Blairgowrie, the biggest town in Perthshire, provides good amenities including supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, independent shops and restaurants, primary and secondary schools, dentists and a medical centre. The cities of Perth (15 miles) and Dundee (17 miles) are within easy commuting distance and provide a wide range of amenities with national retailers, universities, theatres, cinemas, museums and concert halls. There are a number of private schools within a comfortable distance of The Beeches. Nearby airports are Dundee (17 miles) and Edinburgh (55miles). It takes an hour and a half to travel to either Edinburgh or Glasgow by road and/or rail. The A9 with its fast access to the north is only 12 miles away. Perthshire boasts some of the most striking and varied scenery in Scotland - from meandering rivers to wild mountainside - and is home to a diverse range of recreational activities including the championship golf courses at Rosemount (1 mile) and the ski-slopes of Glenshee (25 miles). Both shooting and fishing may be taken locally with extensive walks available in the surrounding woods and glens in part due to the ‘Right to Roam’ legislation. Alyth, Coupar Angus, Dunkeld, Kirriemuir, Pitlochry and Aberfeldy are nearby Perthshire or Angus towns, each one unique. EPC - D
