Stunning four-bedroom semi-rural home with easy commute to Perth or Dundee
This beautiful detached one-and-a-half-storey villa is located at the end of a peaceful lane in an exceptional semi-rural setting. Offering a lovely home for a family or those who work remotely, Thirlestane is a spacious, charismatic property with plenty of opportunity as a walk-in property, but with the chance to upgrade at leisure if the new owner chooses.
Constructed in 1930, the house is substantial and has a generous interior space of 141 m2. The rooms are generously proportioned and neatly decorated, with joinery and walls mostly finished in whites, creating a clean, light-filled environment that best uses its southeast-facing frontage.
Approached via a driveway and neatly hedged front garden, there is a single garage and a carport to the side of the property. A ramp and steps lead to a substantial, glazed front vestibule and into an elegant hallway.
The living room has a deep bay window with a fabulous view looking down over fields and across to Blaigrowie in the distance. Benefitting from a natural wood floor and with a playful stone effect feature wall, the room has a multi-fuel stove and shape-enhancing alcoves painted dark grey to each side, creating a delightfully characterful setting that is quirky yet appealing.
A large recess leads to the kitchen. Designed to maximise worksurface, this has also been cleverly arranged to make good use of the wall area while allowing plenty of circulating space or room for a small dining table. Furnished with light-coloured wooden cupboards with a dark worktop, the kitchen’s red walls complement its triple-aspect garden view. A separate utility room is to the side of the kitchen and leads to a small sunroom offering access to the garden.
The two ground-floor bedrooms are substantial and well-decorated. The rear bedroom has a white tiled en-suite with a WC, wash hand basin and walk-in shower enclosure. Featuring double patio doors that open onto a small paved area, this room also offers potential as a comfortable room for extended family or as a B&B letting space. The bedroom at the front of the property is generously sized, with a deep bay window and a large amount of built-in storage.
The ground floor is completed with a fully tiled family bathroom with a shower bath, WC and wash-hand basin.
Upstairs are two charming attic-style bedrooms with delightfully coombed ceilings and attractive views across the fields and toward Blairgowrie.
Outside, the timber-fenced garden has paving and shrubberies; steps lead to a raised lawn with a small outbuilding and a view across agricultural fields.
Thirlestane’s stunning location and proximity to vibrant areas of urban Scotland make this a unique and attractive property with incredible potential, both as a walk-in family home and somewhere to upgrade and modernise at leisure. Early viewing is recommended.
Located just 16 miles from the city of Perth, Blairgowrie is a harmonious blend of rural charm and urban accessibility, making it a prime location for those seeking the tranquillity of the countryside with the convenience of a city within a reasonable distance.
Famed for its soft fruit, the area offers employment opportunities based around agriculture; hospitality and tourism jobs are complemented by a more comprehensive array of career options in nearby Perth and slightly further away in Dundee.
The town centre features plenty of shops and supermarkets that support everyday needs, plus those offering more luxurious Scottish produce, including famed woollen goods and tartans, and some fabulous restaurants and eateries.
For healthcare, locals have access to doctors and medical facilities within the town, ensuring peace of mind. Families benefit from a good range of educational institutions, from primary to high schools, providing quality education close to home. The town also has a library, community centre, post office and recycling services.
Leisure activities are plentiful in Blairgowrie, with a well-equipped leisure centre offering various sports and fitness facilities. The surrounding landscapes provide ample hiking, fishing, and wildlife-watching opportunities for those who prefer outdoor pursuits. Culturally, Blairgowrie is steeped in history with several historical sites and museums. The sense of community is strong, and local events draw visitors from all over.
Blairgowrie is a well-rounded community, offering essential services in a country setting but within the proximity of vibrant Scottish cities.
