Glenside Home Offers Perfect Highland Business Opportunity

Home buyers seeking their own secluded piece of the Glens now have the perfect opportunity thanks to a converted mill in rural Perthshire.

Built in 1880, the sensitively converted Mill House and attached West Freuchies offers house hunters the chance to pick up two spacious properties situated at the foot of Glenmarkle, bordered by the Cairngorms and Glenisla Forest.

Both rated four stars by Visit Scotland, the properties can be accessed independently giving potential buyers the not-to-be-missed opportunity to reap the benefits of additional income.

Indeed, the excellent layout of West Freuchies has allowed the current owner to run it as a successful Bed & Breakfast business for many years and the Mill House is currently an award-winning self-catering property.

Offering tranquil, rural living and set within ground of 1.9 acres, the properties are on the market with Perthshire-based land and estate agents Bell Ingram for a guide price of £665,000.

Carl Warden, of Bell Ingram’s Perth Office, said: “West Freuchies and the attached Mill House offer buyers a unique opportunity to live a truly highland life and the ideal chance to make the very most out of their property through letting.

“It also offers the perfect setting for those seeking a quiet and private lifestyle, as the surrounding area has plenty of seclusion with a short hop to some amazing and exclusive leisure activities.

“The substantial grounds and spacious interiors mean these properties are ideal for family life or as a summer getaway.”
Natural light reaches all parts of West Freuchies and patio doors bring the outside in to the dining room overlooking the expansive grounds.

The Mill House can be accessed separately from the main house and retains the original beans and exposed stone throughout from its sensitive restoration. With three bedrooms, it makes the perfect holiday let with a wood burning stove in the living room ensuring that it is comfortable and cosy for guests all year round.

Salmon and trout fishing, grouse shooting and four nearby golf courses can be found within minutes’ drive of the homes. A bus takes children to the new Isla Primary School at Lintrathen and secondary schooling, together with a range of shops, banks and associated services are found in Kirriemuir with additional shopping in Alyth. More extensive services are found in Blairgowrie with both Perth and Dundee offer all the services expected of major cities.

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