Feel the harmony of countryside living

A TRADITIONAL farmhouse set in blissful countryside serenity with picturesque views over Loch Leven has landed on the market.

Orwell Farmhouse, in Kinross, Perth and Kinross, boasts colourful surroundings reflected in the glistening surface of the loch, making it a dream location for anyone looking to live in a tranquil haven.

Originally built in the 19th century, the two-storey house has been extended with the addition of an independent annex internally linked to the main accommodation.

On the market with property experts Bell Ingram, Orwell Farmhouse is available for offers over £720,000.

Carl Warden, Senior Associate at Bell Ingram, said: “As you walk into this residence you are immediately hit by its grandeur which is perfectly balanced with the interiors’ simple elegance.

“The spacious rooms and halls bask in the natural daylight flooding through the beautiful large windows in each room.

“The bright, pastel colours of the interiors are augmented by the woodwork consistently exhibited throughout, which adds to the attractive look of the house.

“Traditional and modern styles coupled together create a welcoming and cosy atmosphere, however, the house’s real character lies in the small details; an open fire place, a log burning stove and the glazed doors.

“With Scotland’s largest lowland loch on Orwell Farmhouse’s doorstep and acres of woodlands and gardens nearby, the location is a dreamy oasis for people who love all things nature.”

The five-bedroom property benefits from large, open spaces including three public rooms, a courtyard and various outbuildings, such as a three-bay car barn and a steel portal shed.

The spacious plan of the house is well utilised with additional office space, a larder, a wine store, a family bathroom, a laundry room and a beautiful kitchen with a dining area.

Perhaps the most striking room of all is the south-facing garden room which creates an open plan space with the kitchen. The room features an impressive green oak frame and takes full advantage of the panoramic view over Loch Leven.

The grounds extend to 11 acres are of particular note, with two acres of lawned areas and a walled garden, two acres of woodland and a further seven acres laid in grass.

The smart layout of the house offers opportunities for socialising while still providing plenty of private space, making it a perfect property for families with teenagers or dependent relatives or individuals looking to utilise it as a guest accommodation or as a holiday letting business.

The property is located in a highly accessible spot with the nearby M90 motorway providing direct links to Perth and Edinburgh.

Kinross itself boasts numerous opportunities for entertainment and leisure with a range of excellent shops and restaurants, a fine golf course and a community sports facility based in the local high school.

Beyond that, there is the famous Loch Leven Castle in which Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned and the beautiful island surrounding it, which can be accessed by a boat.
