Set in extensive grounds in a peaceful woodland setting near picturesque Pitlochry (8 miles) in Highland Perthshire is Old Ballechin, a substantial house in an elevated position that affords wonderful views of the Tay Valley.
This Victorian house has been extended and refurbished in order to create a warm and inviting base for exploring the surrounding countryside. Relax around the wood-burning stove in the sitting room or sit and enjoy the peace in the bright, semi-circular garden room that also has a wood-burning stove, full length windows that frame the view of the garden and seating that is positioned perfectly for admiring it.
The huge dining kitchen at the heart of the house is a great space for preparing meals in style with both an Aga and an electric cooker to choose from and a huge dining table for everyone to gather and eat together at. Off the kitchen are a snug and a utility room with laundry facilities and lots of storage space.
A twin bedroom with a dressing room and an en suite shower room is set out downstairs and upstairs the other bedrooms lie off a spacious landing where there is a little office area that is the ideal place to sit and read a book. There are two double bedrooms (one en suite and one king-size) and two further twin rooms that make use of the family bathroom.
Landscaped gardens surround the house and extend to over 1.5 acres with lots of mature plants and trees that provide shelter and seclusion. A particularly attractive feature of the garden is the south-facing sun terrace with seating and more views out across the Tay Valley.
