Property Description

Full description

A rare opportunity to purchase a piece of local history, this three bed former Station House at Innerpeffrey was built in 1866 with the arrival of the Crieff to Methven rail link. Providing a much needed service linking Crieff to Perth, the line was eventually closed some 101 years later.
Enjoying an enviable location offering much privacy and a beautiful open outlook, the property is only 2.5miles from Crieff and is set in around 3 acres of garden ground. The substantial area is south facing and runs some 140m/680ft along the dismantled railway line, 54m/175ft wide narrowing to 28m/90ft. Much of the original platform remains, the southern side of which was used for loading livestock onto the trains with the northern for travellers who sheltered in the station's 'male' and 'female' waiting rooms.

The property is set over two floors comprising on the ground floor; LIVING ROOM with stove, large SUN ROOM, SITTING ROOM, BREAKFASTING KITCHEN & REAR PORCH with WC off. There are 3 DOUBLE BEDROOMS and a FAMILY BATHROOM on the upper floor. The property is warmed by oil-fired central heating and is double glazed throughout.

Externally a long private drive leads to an ample parking area. There is a useful brick built store to the rear & a large garage/workshop (50ft x 18ft) with considerable storage beneath. There are large areas laid to lawn with mature trees bordering and a paved patio adjacent to the sun room with an attractive glass balustrade.

Presented in move-in condition there is also much scope for additional development (an example of which is detailed later within these particulars). A fine family home, steeped in history and situated within an enviable Perthshire location. Likely to have broad appeal, early viewing is strongly advised.

Innerpeffray Station House is situated amidst the rolling countryside of Perthshire between Crieff and Auchterarder. Crieff, some 2.5 miles to the west, provides a fine range of services. Auchterarder, about 7 miles to the south, also has good amenities together with the world renowned Gleneagles Hotel (some 8 miles). Perth lies about 15 miles to the east and provides a wide range of services including both railway and bus stations. Edinburgh and Glasgow can be reached in around an hour by car.

The property is well located for the local Crieff primary schools and secondary school campus, with the school bus stopping at the end at the road (5 mins walk). There are a number of independent schools, including Morrison's Academy & Ardvreck Preparatory School (both in Crieff), Strathallan in Forgandenny, Kilgraston by Bridge of Earn, Craigclowan on the edge of Perth and Glenalmond lying to the north beyond Methven.

Perthshire enjoys a huge range of recreational pursuits with golfers particularly well catered for. The surrounding hills and glens provide a wide variety of walks whilst water sports may be enjoyed on Loch Earn (8miles). Drummond Castle Gardens are situated between Crieff and Muthill. Crieff Hydro Hotel offers excellent recreational activities including two swimming pools, gym, 18 hole golf course, tennis courts and restaurants.
