Alexander House

Self Catering

Alexander House, Auchterarder, Perthshire, PH3 1PR

    A fabulous brand new, but classically designed family holiday home sleeping up to 20, with swimming pool, hot tub, croquet and football lawns, and spectacular panoramic views across Gleneagles Golf Courses and hotel, and to both the Highlands and the Sidlaw hills. A chandeliered dining hall with spiralling turnpike staircase; a hot tub and a swimming pool; a gorgeous four-poster bedroom with an elliptical bath; stunning views over mountain and valley. Hidden high in the Perthshire hills at the end of a farm track, the brand new house gleams inside and out and is sustainably built. Water is from a private bore hole, there's a ground source heat pump and a reclaimed Scottish slate roof. At its heart, a vast, brilliantly light living space encased in glass doors and windows: a 14-seat pine table in the centre still leaves acres of space to curl up on huge tan leather sofas. Lounge on beanbags, cook in the open plan extravaganza of a kitchen (Le Creuset, a range cooker, espresso and ice machines, the full works). Out on the terrace is a barbecue, plus swings, a slide and trampoline. Inside play snooker - or cuddle up with a card game in front of the drawing room fire. Bedrooms are just as finely equipped: a gilded sleigh bed, solid oak four-poster, children's bunks, flexible set-ups for families, sofas in some and magnificent views all around. And of course, an indispensible muddy-boot room to greet you after a stomp, cycle or fishing expedition in Perthshire's wildly wonderful countryside - Gleneagles being just down the road. Don't hold back: this house was designed to be enjoyed.
