Beautifully appointed, stone-built extended Detached Villa located on a generous plot in a prime Loch side position with waterside frontage and splendid panoramic views. This must-see property with scope to further extend, will no doubt prove popular given its prime waterside location and spacious accommodation. Early viewing is essential.


Portghlas is a beautifully appointed, stone-built extended Detached Villa which sits beautifully on a generous plot in a prime Lochside position with waterside frontage and splendid panoramic views in the highly sought-after village of Kenmore.

The surrounding area boasts some of Scotland's finest scenery with a wealth of country walks and outdoor pursuits on offer including water sports and sailing at Taymouth Marina, The Scottish Crannog Centre, Golf Courses and Taymouth Castle.  The property ideally placed for all amenities including a newly extended primary school, local shops and post office, village pub and a regular bus service to Aberfeldy some 5 miles away, which has a fuller range of shops, a cinema and medical and educational facilities.

The A9, just 10 miles away, provides easy links to Pitlochry with its renowned Festival Theatre and a good choice of pubs and restaurants, to Aviemore for walking and winter sports, and south to Dunkeld and Perth where the outer-ring motorway network makes easy commuting to all major cities and airports in the central belt.


The property itself has been further extended some years ago to form a particularly wide and welcoming reception hall with shower room, utility and extremely generous open-plan living/dining/breakfasting-kitchen to one end which enjoys exceptionally lovely unbroken views.

Access is via a modern UPVC glazed door to a spacious and light hallway with picture windows and door enjoying garden views, ample space for furniture and a painted stone wall, which would have been the exterior of the original cottage in its day. To one end, original double storm doors open to the original cottage which has a small hall with walk-in cupboard and pitch pine staircase with handrail leading to the bedroom accommodation. 

There is the most charming sitting room/snug which enjoys a triple aspect, two of the windows with working shutters and a lovely focal point brick fireplace with cast iron wood burner and space for furniture.  Upstairs is a galley landing with Velux window, useful built-in cupboards, loft access, two spacious double bedrooms with lovely views and an original family bathroom.  Leading from the reception hall downstairs is a large master bedroom with space for furniture and a walk-in dressing room and good-sized en-suite bathroom with recessed shower cubicle with wet wall panels and separate bath, wash-hand basin with inset vanity unit, chrome heated towel rail and Karndean flooring. 

To the other side of the hall is a large utility fitted with oak wall units with tiled splashback and shelving and automatic washing machine, tumble dryer and upright fridge-freezer.  Adjacent is a modern wet room with open shower cubicle and sparkle effect wet-wall panels, mains shower, non-slip flooring and white ladder towel rail. 

The wow factor to this family home is the superb triple aspect extension which is carpeted to the generous sitting room area having ample space for furniture and triple windows and central patio doors opening to a raised flag stone terrace which enjoys the most superb views to the surrounding countryside to the side and rear and across Loch Tay to the front.

There is a large dining area with laminate wood-effect flooring  which has a breakfasting area and leads to a generous open-plan kitchen with stunning views to the front and fitted with a range of oak wall and base units with marble-effect worktops, a tiled splashback and pine panelled wall and ceiling with ambient lighting.

Appliances include a 5 ring calor gas hob with extractor canopy and stainless-steel splashback, a single oven and additional oven with microwave combined and dishwasher.  To the dining area is a generous built-in display plinth with cupboards and drawers below and feature beam to the ceiling with spot lighting. 

Oil central heating is installed, windows are mixed, however with double glazed to the extension and the property has neutral decoration and ample storage throughout. 

Portghlas is a beautifully appointed family home or buy-to-let opportunity, on a generous plot in a prime Lochside location with scope to extend subject to planning consent being obtained.  Viewing is recommended to appreciate the proximity and prime waterside location of this spacious family home.  Home Report valuation £500,000.



To the front of Portghlas is a walled garden which is west facing and has the benefit of enjoying the afternoon and beautiful evening sunsets across the loch to the countryside beyond.  The generous garden grounds of approximately 1 acre include a spacious wood store, timber shed, poly tunnel and a double depth brick-built garage with aluminium roof.  The garden grounds are beautifully mature with a copious number of established trees and shrubs, providing year-round interest and colour with privacy and seclusion. 

A central flag stone patio enjoys panoramic views to the surrounding hills and makes a perfect spot for alfresco dining with ample space for parking via two driveways either side of the property.  As a note, this property owns the land across the road, right down to the waters edge, an area which could potentially form a decked area to make the most of the views, for sole use.


It is proposed to include all fitted floor coverings, carpets, curtains, blinds, and light fittings in the sale, together with the appliances as stated in the schedule. Some items are available by separate negotiation.
