"Garden House" is situated equidistant between Rumbling Bridge and Crook of Devon, within a walled garden, a 200 metre tarred driveway off a quiet unclassified public road. It has a lovely rural outlook with mature hedges, shrubs and hardwood trees and the River Devon flowing 100 yards away. There is a house plot to the west which was purchased by the owners of Spinneyburn House (see page 10) eight years ago not to be developed. This means that three large rooms in Garden House have attractive views to the west and unobstructed sunshine in the afternoon and evening. The two houses to the south of garden house are well screened off with trees and bushes and the house to the north is at a higher level and is also completely screened off by the 12ft high wall.
The driveway serves three houses and two house plots. The current owner is moving to the house being built at Plot 2 in May 2017.

There are beautiful walks to Rumbling Bridge Gorge and up to Crook of Devon. The nearby Lendrick Muir House has wonderful facilities and grounds. Crook of Devon has a traditional pub which serves food, a general store/post office, church, park and village hall.
The excellent Fossoway Primary School, Crook of Devon, is within walking distance to the east and Muckhart Primary School lies 2 miles to the west.
Kinross High School (6 miles) has a superb reputation as does the fee paying Dollar Academy (4 miles to the west). School busses laid on to both.

The Inn at Muckhart (2 miles) has won the Cask Marque Award Certificate of Excellence for Real Ale and offers meals.
Muckhart also boasts a fantastic golf course established in 1908. Set on a series of low rocky hills and including several challenging holes. There are also three nine-hole courses; Arndean, Cowden, and Naemoor.

STAMP DUTY Garden House provides the ideal investment opportunity as it is being marketed at well below the 10% stamp duty obligation of 325,00. With some renovation, however, such as suggested in the architects plans, Garden House could easily be valued at around 400,000.

The owners would prefer the entry date to be spring/summer 2017 so the purchasers would have ample time to sell their own property and secure planning consent at garden house if required. Architects plans have been drawn up to extend and convert the attic into first floor accommodation. This would double the accommodation, subject to planning. (Plans attached). Likely cost 100,000.
