Set in a highly sought-after area of Perth, this unique and beautifully presented detached period villa is an immaculate, must-see property. Early viewing is very highly recommended!
Rare to the market, this charming, detached period property was formerly the gate lodge to Bowerswell House and is situated on a prime elevated corner plot, with easily maintained, beautifully mature gardens and separate private walled courtyard, in Perth’s most prestigious and highly sought-after Kinnoull area of Perth. Ideally placed, within pleasant walking distance of Kinnoull Hill and Riverside Park on the east bank of the River Tay, and Perth city centre with its North Inch Parklands and good range of shopping, business, and leisure amenities, including Perth Theatre, Concert Hall, cinema, restaurants, and bars, and Scone Palace all ‘on the doorstep’. The main bus and rail stations, and the outer-ring motorway network at Friarton Bridge, are a short drive away, providing easy commuting to Dundee and all private schooling and outdoor pursuits out with the area, and all major cities and airports in the central belt, and north.
This immaculately presented and traditional stone-built property enjoys versatile accommodation with many period features. This includes space to work from home and a most splendid contemporary dining/kitchen/family room extension with a Velux situated in a vaulted ceiling and doors to the private courtyard.
The shared drive provides ample off-street parking and access either via the lovely traditional front door, or via the generally used side door, to a reception hall with space for furniture and feature arch, hardwood plank-effect flooring and a shelved recess with coat hooks and useful storage. There is ladder access to a floored and lined attic space which provides useful storage and scope to form an office or second ensuite to the upper level. There is a Jack & Jill style modern shower room with marble-effect wet-wall enclosure with mains shower, inset wash-hand basin with vanity unit, a white heated towel rail and door to a large double guest bedroom enjoying a bay window with working shutters. There is plenty of room for furniture, a feature ornamental fireplace, and door to the front vestibule with window to side and original front door. This room is versatile in its use, be it as an office, playroom, or guest suite.
A glazed door opens to a peaceful dual-aspect living room with sash & case windows and splendid focal point fireplace with oak mantel, cast-iron insert and coal-effect living flame gas fire. There is a recessed display/drinks cupboard, ample space for furniture and superb quality tartan carpet which continues on the open tread staircase to the upper floor which has a display plinth and useful additional storage beneath. The inner hall leads to a good-size utility/boot room with window to side, ceramic tiled flooring and is fitted with white base and full-height units, granite-effect laminate work top, tiled splashback, sink, shelving and an automatic washing machine, tumble dryer and upright fridge freezer.
The heart of this home is most definitely the superb triple aspect extension with its hardwood stripped flooring and generous run of painted wall and base units with granite effect work tops, tiled splashback, and a wonderful hi-level deep display plinth with picture windows running the full width of the kitchen, together with the beamed vaulted ceiling and Velux window making a lovely feature and flooding the room with natural daylight.
There is a useful walk-in pantry unit and ambient lighting. Appliances include an integrated 5 ring gas hob with oven, microwave, freestanding dishwasher, larder fridge and sink. There is ample space for furniture and to one side of the room there is a lovely solid stone wall, originally the exterior of the property, with an area of ceramic tile flooring to front, offering scope for installation of a multi-fuel burner, subject to requirements, which would make the most wonderful focal point to this delightful room. The fully glazed full-height windows to two elevations have central doors opening to an the exceptionally large, secluded fully enclosed courtyard garden which in turn leads to the grassed side garden, making this home perfect for relaxing outside and entertaining.
The open-tread staircase overlooking the living room has an opaque skylight providing natural light and 2 deep eaves cupboards on the upper landing providing additional storage. There are two further double bedrooms, both enjoy superb, elevated treetop views and space for furniture. The principal bedroom has an en-suite shower room with double enclosure, mains shower, modern wash hand basin with inset vanity unit, a chrome heated towel rail and window overlooking the side garden. The second double bedroom is much the same with views to side and a double wardrobe which we understand from the current owner, has scope to open into the loft space to form a second en-suite, subject to regulations.
Gas central heating is installed, the windows in the kitchen diner are all double glazed and the remainder of the house has the original sash windows. There is ample storage and fresh tasteful decoration and scope further to enhance the property if so desired.
Early viewing is indeed very highly recommended to appreciate this unique property, given its outlook, presentation, and prime sought-after location.
