RARELY AVAILABLE OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD A UNIQUE FAMILY HOME WITHIN A BEAUTIFUL WALLED GARDEN.

Location

The Walled Garden of Briglands House is set in beautiful countryside in a secluded position, 6.5 miles east of Dollar and within easy commuting distance of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling and Perth. The village of Rumbling Bridge is on the door step of The Walled Garden and is nestled at the foot of the Ochil Hills. The River Devon divides the village which is made up of large, detached houses.

Less than half a mile away are a range of local services including post office, pub, garage and Fossoway Primary School. Two other nearby villages, Pool of Muckhart and Yetts of Muckhart, have a pub, coffee shop and another small but well regarded primary school.

Kinross (6½ miles) has a good range of services including secondary education at Kinross High School, and a variety of shops, among them a Sainsbury’s supermarket. The small town of Dollar also offers a wide selection of shops, including a supermarket, delicatessen, bank and post office, hotels, health centre, dentist, golf course, a primary school, tennis club and squash club. The town is well known for Dollar Academy, a private co-educational school with an excellent reputation, that takes day pupils and boarders. The independent schools of Perthshire are also all within easy reach.

The historic city of Stirling is only 18 miles to the west and has excellent shopping and professional services, along with a commuter rail service to Edinburgh and Glasgow and a well regarded university. Inverkeithing is also 18 miles away and has a park and ride service and train station.

Many leisure activities are available in the area. Gleneagles Hotel (12 miles) has a leisure club with extensive sports facilities including a shooting school, an equestrian centre, the British School of Falconry and three famous golf courses: the King’s, the Queen’s and the PGA Centenary Course. There are numerous other courses within easy reach including the highly thought of Muckhart Golf Course, two courses at Kinross and the world famous courses of St Andrews (35 miles).

Description

The plot available within the walled garden at Briglands House is a unique opportunity to build a one off family home in a mature and well stocked enclosed garden. The design and planning consent incorporates and retains the existing stone built outbuilding which has attractive timber doors and a slate roof. The building currently comprises several store rooms which will form an entrance hallway and two bedrooms, one of which is to be en suite. The house will extend out into the walled garden itself where the living quarters of the house will be located. Large windows will overlook the immaculately presented gardens and will allow light to flood into the living spaces and master bedroom.

Within the walled garden the site is bordered by an impressive and high stone wall to the north, west and east and to the south is an established yew topiary hedge which provides privacy. The garden, which faces south east, is laid out partly as a kitchen garden, having raised beds for soft fruit and vegetables, and also as an amenity garden which is secluded and sheltered from the worst of the weather.

The front of the property is accessed through a stone archway set into a stone wall where there is a gravel driveway which approaches the front door. Here there is a large lawn interspersed with mature trees and rhododendrons. The driveway will run in front of the house past the site for double garage out onto the shared road.
