A rare opportunity to purchase an elegant country house in a highly sought-after area of Perthshire has arisen with premium rural estate agents, Bell Ingram.
Upper Farrochil is a stunning five-bedroom family home with far reaching views over the valley to Strathtay, one of the most desirable areas in Highland Perthshire.
On the market with Bell Ingram for offers over £650,000, Upper Farrochil is set in mature country grounds of 0.82 acres, offering a true taste of Scottish rural life while benefitting from amenities in the nearby hub of Aberfeldy.
With access to the property’s three family rooms, the large conservatory is the hub of the home. New buyers will be able to take in the glorious surroundings from the gorgeous room, which even comes with its own billiard table that retracts into the floor to create more space for entertaining or relaxing.
Bell Ingram Estate Agency, Moira Webley comments: “This is a gorgeous forever home in a truly desirable location that we believe will be much loved by its future owners. Buyers will be equally wowed by the surroundings and stature of the home and its cosy living areas that are perfect for all the whole family to enjoy.”
“Given its highly prestigious location, we are anticipating huge interest in Upper Farrochil, not only from the local market but with those looking to relocate to a gorgeous part of the country with the best that rural life has to offer, while not far from a small town such as Aberfeldy.”
The entrance porch opens into a welcoming reception hall with a turning staircase leading to a gallery first floor. Also off the reception hall is a coat room with window, radiator, parquet flooring and a further door through to the downstairs loo.
To the right is the family room which overlooks the garden and has a glazed door to the garden room which has a tiled flooring, surrounding double glazed windows, exposed stone wall and a very pleasant outlook over the abundantly stocked garden and from which the outside can be accessed via a glazed door.
The formal dining room has double doors opening through to the large conservatory. The sitting room has a feature corner fireplace, with a Jotel Scandanavian wood burning stove, overlooks the mature rear garden.
The conservatory can also be accessed from here. The conservatory was constructed by Mozolowski and Murray and is currently being used as a billiard room. It has dwarf walls, deep hardwood window cills, surrounding double glazed windows and a glazed roof. A particularly unique feature allows the three-quarter size Reily slate-bed billiard table to be recessed into the floor by means of a mechanised lift. From here are doors to the garden and a door returning back through to the kitchen.
The dining kitchen was installed by Perth Kitchens and has ample place for a table and chairs. A walk-in cupboard has shelving and garment hooks and there is a pantry cupboard and a further unit with plumbing for an automatic washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. The Travertine stone floor has under floor heating. The cream coloured base and wall mounted units have Corian worktops and there are shelved cupboards, pantry units, inset sink and mixer tap, twin oven oil fired Aga with two hotplates, an induction hob, a combi microwave oven, separate DeDietrich oven, integrated dishwasher and large American style fridge freezer with wine cooler.
The upper floor hallway has two double size linen cupboards. Bedroom five, which is a single room with a window to the front, would also be ideally suited for use as an office. The master bedroom has a dressing room which in turn leads through to the recently completed en suite bathroom with WC, wash basin, shaped bath and corner shower. There are elevated views over the garden from the master bedroom.
There are a further three comfortable double bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms. Completing the accommodation on the upper floor is a recently completed shower room with WC and wash basin.
