This unique period detached villa enjoys many original features and benefits from a prime central location. Viewing highly rec.


Rare to the market, this lovely period property lies within pleasant walking distance of the city centre with its wide range of business, shopping and leisure amenities including primary and secondary schooling and the bus and railway stations, and access to the motorway network close by, provides easy commuting to all major cities and airports in the central belt.


This impressive property was built on the site of one of only two Carthusian Monasteries in Britain and was regarded as French Territory in the 14th Century, later commissioned to be built by the surgeon to the King James Hospital in 1836 and completed in 1842. Following this time, during and between the wars it was a boarding house for the actors and actresses from Perth Theatre, many of whom became household names.

The property itself benefits from many original features including ornate cornicing, ceiling roses, ½ height panelling and deep skirtings, sash & case windows and the current owners have recently upgraded the bathroom and shower room and installed new Velux windows.  

Access is via a Georgian door opening to a long vestibule with hardwood flooring and ample space for furniture, a high-level window providing natural light, chandelier style lighting with matching wall lights, and access to a cloakroom with inset vanity unit and wall-mounted mirrors at each end.

The lovely light reception hallway has ample room for furniture and a staircase with attractive balustrade and deep under stair cupboard, and chandelier lighting.  There is a good-size breakfasting kitchen with ample space for casual dining, fitted with neutral wall, base and display units with ambient lighting, laminate worktops, tiled splashback and ceramic sink with drainer and windows enjoying sunny views overlooking the garden to front.  Appliances include a 7-burner gas range with 3 ovens and grill and an American style fridge freezer, available by separate negotiation and there is space for a dishwasher and automatic washing machine.

There is a delightful sitting room with the most superb full-height feature box bay window with working shutters, overlooking the front garden, and flooding the room with natural sunlight.  A lovely focal point traditional marble fireplace has a large multi-fuel burner, ample space for furniture and beautiful period cornicing with ceiling rose and 5 arm chandelier lighting and deep skirting.  Adjacent is another lovely, peacefully situated, living room with panelling to dado height and again a focal-point feature fireplace with gas fire and tiled hearth with hand painted tiles, and bay window to front with working shutters.  A door from this room leads to a small lobby with 1/2 height panelling and hardwood flooring, skylight and fully glazed door to outside terrace and front garden, currently used as a useful laundry room with recessed shelving and space for condenser tumble dryer, which could be a nice wee library or compact office.

The attractive staircase with ornate balustrade leads to a light upper floor galley-style landing with window to side and loft access, and four spacious double bedrooms. The peaceful master bedroom has a sash and case bay window with working shutters to front, full-height double wardrobes with central mirrors, ample space for free-standing furniture and French doors to an en-suite shower room with new corner shower enclosure, laminate flooring and two cupboards with louvre doors and new Velux window. Bedrooms 2 & 3 are spacious and bright with ample space for furniture, sash & case bay windows to front with working shutters and lovely views to Kinnoull and bedroom 4 is currently used as a playroom with bunk beds and a double built-in wardrobe and two high level Velux windows. The family bathroom is lovely and fresh with white tiles, bath with shower and screen, bevelled mirror, chrome heated towel rail and new Velux window. Gas central heating is installed, windows are sash & case & part double glazed and there is ample storage throughout.

Home Report valuation £315,000.


Wrought iron gates lead to a wonderfully mature garden with wide chipped driveway up to the house with parking to side and off-street parking for 6 cars.  The garden is laid mainly to lawn with a deep herbaceous border to one side with assorted shrubs and fruit trees, and opposite a delightful summer house, currently used as a studio with separate garage/workshop and outdoor store and log store.  A high-level timber gate opens to a most delightful courtyard style garden with hi-level boundary wall adorned with trailing plants, an ideal for BBQ area with ample space for planted pots and tubs, garden furniture or hot tub, if so desired. 


It is proposed to include all fitted floor coverings, carpets, curtains, blinds, and light fittings in the sale, together with the gas range. The American style fridge freezer is available by separate negotiation.
