Full description

A beautifully light and spacious home with a stunning private garden

Location

Highwood is situated at the head of a small development of properties beside the former Highlandman Station. It is only a couple of miles away from the busy town of Crieff and is also commutable to both Edinburgh and Glasgow which are 58 and 48 miles away respectively.

Crieff has a wide range of independent shops as well as a large medical centre, modern cottage hospital and dental practices. Crieff Recreation Centre offers a wide range of facilities including a swimming pool, gymnasium and squash courts, and the famous Crieff Hydro also offers a swimming pool, tennis and squash courts for members. There are two 18 hole golf courses and 9 hole courses nearby at Muthill, Comrie and St Fillans.

Gleneagles Hotel and Country Club is just over 10 miles away, with three championship golf courses, an equestrian centre and a shooting school. The surrounding countryside provides for all tastes in outdoor activities, including hill walking, climbing, fishing, water sports at Loch Earn and skiing within easy driving distance at Glenshee and Glencoe.

There are good local schools in Crieff including secondary schooling at state of the art Strathearn Community Campus which is a six year comprehensive school offering a full range of courses. It also acts as a community centre for the local public, including the relocated public library. Private schooling is available in Crieff at Ardvreck and Morrison's Academy, and also at Glenalmond between Crieff and Perth.

Description

Highwood is approached via a shared driveway which leads to its private gateway framed by tall statuesque conifers. Beyond the gateway is a gravel turning circle and generous parking beside the triple garage. Built approximately 24 years ago, Highwood is characterised by multiple large windows and glazed doors enabling light to fill every corner of the house. Highwood would make a wonderful family home and is also ideal for entertaining.

From the spacious reception hall it is possible to glimpse almost all the principal rooms through their glazed doors and the house has a welcoming atmosphere despite having some wonderfully formal rooms. The drawing room spans the width of the house with a large bay window at the front and French windows opening onto the garden at the rear. An elegant Georgian style fire surround forms a focal point. From the drawing room there is a door to the informal sitting room which is open to the smaller, fully glazed garden room. This is a bright and peaceful space with the best view of the garden. At the far end of the reception hall is the formal dining room which fits a large dining table and has French windows opening into the west side of the garden. A dining kitchen has a white three door Aga, as well as an electric oven and hob. The kitchen is fitted with wall and base units and has a dining area. Behind the kitchen is a utility room which is plumbed for a washing machine and tumble drier and has a door to the garden.

Stairs from the main hall lead up to the first floor where there is a master bedroom with a wall of fitted wardrobes as well as a large en suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms (one en suite), a study, a store room and a family shower room. There are superb southerly views from the upper floors of Highwood over rolling countryside to the hills beyond.

Outside
The garden at Highwood is a particular feature of the property. At the front of the house a pretty birch tree forms the centre of a gravel turning circle. A colourful border edges the pathway to the front door and the remainder of the front garden is mainly neat lawn enclosed by clipped hedges. The majority of the garden is laid out to the rear of the house. It has been beautifully designed and is full of interest at all times of the year. Topiary, spring bulbs and blossoms, rockeries, pathways, summer borders, specimen trees and abundant wildlife are just some of the highlights of the garden. Being sheltered and south facing the garden enjoys the best of the sunshine. A paved terrace outside the drawing room is an ideal place to eat out in good weather.

Garage
Highwood has a triple garage with remote controlled up and over doors. There is also a pedestrian door into the garage and storage space.
