This stunning detatched property has been beautifully designed and is set within generous wrap around gardens with the most spectacular views!
Rare to the market, Littlebank is a gem of a property which lies nestled within 0.5 acres of beautifully maintained and secluded suntrap gardens which enjoy splendid panoramic views across the surrounding countryside in the thriving hamlet of Airntully. This delightful property, built just 5 years ago by the current owners, lies equidistance between the villages of Stanley and Murthly and just 9 miles from Perth, located within the catchment areas of several schools including Stanley Primary School, St Ninian’s Episcopal Primary School, St John’s RC Academy Primary and Secondary Schools including Perth High School and Perth Grammar School. There is a good choice of local amenities including grocery shops, a butcher, chemist, post office and a good choice of places to eat out including Uisge bistro style restaurant, Stewart Towers farm shop and dairy café, and at Bankfoot the Taste of Perthshire shop and restaurant with its new self-service petrol station and garden centre and also the Bankfoot Inn.
Surrounded by some of Scotland’s finest scenery there is a wealth of outdoor pursuits including biking, golfing, riding, and water sports at Clunie Loch and Aberfeldy, ample dog and hill walking, the infamous Bluebell Wood and Birnam Hill just along the road, as is the much-photographed Hermitage at the nearby cathedral town of Dunkeld. Further north, Snowsports are available at both Aviemore and Glenshee and Pitlochry with its Theatre and variety of tourist attractions and ever popular Enchanted Forest, as is the easily accessible House of Bruar.
Although Littlebank is set in a rural location, the property is under 3 miles east of the A9 and 11 miles north of the M90, offering easy commuting to all major cities and airports in the central belt and north. In addition, there is a regular bus service to Perth and surrounding villages, a reliable train service at Birnam offering links to Inverness, Perth, Glasgow, and Edinburgh, and a good choice of private schooling including Craigclowan, Strathallan, Glenalmond and Kilgraston. Any further needs can be catered for in the city of Perth just 11 miles south, where there are a good range of shops, hotels, restaurants, sports facilities and cinema as well as Perth Concert Hall and Theatre.
This beautifully appointed, individually designed property was built and completed by our clients some five years ago and offers exceptionally spacious and versatile accommodation. Designed to the highest of specifications, there is stylish and contemporary décor, ambient lighting throughout, with the emphasis placed on quality fixtures and fittings including beautiful Panaget French oak engineered wood flooring to the lounge, Heritage oak engineered flooring to downstairs bedroom/office, landing and master bedroom, and wonderful Mandarin Stone limestone tiles to the hall, open-plan kitchen and downstairs shower room.
