The Arches was built about five years ago to provide a fine family home incorporating the latest green technologies available.

The Architect designed home forms a u-shaped building incorporating stone arches and quoins in the traditional Perthshire vernacular using structural insulated panels for the walls and roof allowing flexible room layout.

Accommodation is all at ground level but an expansive attic with no trusses allows scope for additional rooms - subject to necessary consent.

Presently the house has two public rooms, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, dining kitchen and various stores. Outside is a vast workshop/garage, gardens front and rear and additional stores.

The internal finishes are mainly solid oak with engineered hardwood floors and well specified finishes throughout. All windows are timber scandinavian units which are triple glazed.

Overall, The Arches is built using the latest eco modern methods of construction yet retains a traditional outward appearance in an attractive location with far reaching views towards the Tay and beyond.

Energy Saving - The Arches is heated by underfloor heating from an air-source heat pump with triple glazing and a comprehensive ventilation system providing fresh air and removing moist air.

Outside is a rainwater harvesting system in the garden providing water to flush the WCs. Private water is supplied from a new bore hole and there is a bio-disc septic tank all on the property.
