Unique Edwardian Villa For Sale After 30 Years

House hunters seeking a unique family home steeped in history may find their dream property in Charismhor – a detached Edwardian villa now on the market for the first time in three decades.

Built in 1901, the stunning six bedroom property is one of the finest examples of its kind in the Milnathort and Kinross area.

It was constructed by a local builder who had also previously built several of the properties on the south side of street. Charismhor, however, has particular appeal as it was this property that the builder chose for himself and his family.

As such, the home has been finished to a very high standard and, to add to the whole attractive package, it retains many of its traditional Edwardian features which fill it with character, including stained glass feature windows, ornate cornishing, an open fireplace and a wide shallow staircase.

What’s more, its substantial windows and high ceilings mean each room is spacious and filled with light and it provides impressive views out towards the south westerly aspect of the front of the property. It sits in extensive, mature grounds of 1.35 acres which extend down to Milnathort’s “Back Burn” and Golf Course, offering plenty of privacy.

Situated just 16 miles from the thriving city of Perth, Charismhor is currently on the market with Chartered Surveyors, Land and Estate Agents Bell Ingram for offers over £530,000.

Carl Warden, of Bell Ingram’s Perth office, said: “This is a truly must see property due to its stunning period features and its substantial grounds and it would be ideal for large and growing families looking for lots of flexible space.

“Charismhor offers the best of both worlds in terms of setting, as its Milnathort location means it is extremely accessible while also boasting high levels of seclusion in a truly stunning location.

“Its close location to Perth and Edinburgh via the M90 also means it is within easy commuting distance for anyone who works in these cities but would prefer to have the tranquillity of the countryside in the evening and at weekends.

“Golf enthusiasts will definitely not be disappointed here, as it offers buyers the chance to live just a putting shot from Milnathort Golf Club and there are also a huge number of other golf courses in the surrounding area, including Gleneagles and the world-famous Old Course in St Andrews.”

As well as being notably beautiful, the surrounding countryside is also steeped in significant Scottish history. Loch Leven Castle, a mere 2.3 miles drive from Milnathort, was the place where Mary Queen of Scots was incarcerated in 1567. The castle is only accessible by boat, but regular ferries run to island on which it stands.

The nearby town of Kinross, just a couple of miles away, has an array of bustling shops and restaurants, as well as an excellent high school that also serves as a community sports and leisure facility.

Viewings are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Perth office on 01738 621 121.

Established 117 years ago, Bell Ingram has 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices including: farm, estate and forestry managers; chartered surveyors, estate agents, architects, planners, and building surveyors; and tourism, GIS mapping, and renewable energy specialists.
