3 bedroom flat for saleBroomfield House, Golf Course Road, Blairgowrie, Perthshire
Under Offer £285,000
Broomfield House was commissioned by a wealthy Dundee jute baron in the early years of the 20th century, and is situated at the heart of a 4 acre estate off a quiet road in the Rosemount area of Blairgowrie. The Edwardian mansion was converted into 3 apartments and a penthouse around 7 years ago.
Situated on the second floor of Broomfield House, this spectacular penthouse apartment has magnificent open views across the fairways beyond the estate's edge. A large, well-furnished shared reception hall, with oak panelling and ornate ceiling cornice, leads to the impressive original staircase. An imaginative approach to space and light here has opened up the original architecture, with an expansive open plan space forming the main living area of the property. Floor-to-ceiling glazing and deep sliding doors open up to the generous terrace and impressive outlook. The open plan areas of the living/dining/kitchen accommodation and the master bedroom all have direct access to the stunning terrace, which has proportions that are more than adequate for al fresco entertaining or simply relaxing in the warmer weather. There are a further 2 bedrooms, one of which is presently used as a study, and a family bathroom.
The apartment would be ideal as a main or second home.
The entrance to Broomfield is served by remote controlled gates, and is flanked by mature rhododendrons, neat grass verges and a beech hedge. The driveway ends in a gravel sweep at the front of Broomfield House. In the summer the garden at Broomfield is filled with colourful plants and shrubs. Mature parkland surrounds the house and mature beech, oak and pine are amongst the trees which provide a magnificent setting and are communally available to the owners of Broomfield House.
There is a large gravel parking area in front of the house.
