The Old Manse, designed by the ecclesiastical architect James Laing, is a superb traditional stone house with slate roof and astragal windows.

Emma Chalmers, Partner of Galbraith, who is handling the sale said: “This property has it all – an absolutely superb principal house combining original features, well-proportioned rooms and modern conveniences, beautiful gardens that offer tranquillity and interest all year-round, with the separate steading being ideal for parties and large family gatherings. To top it all, the setting is glorious and the views are simply breathtaking. This is a rural retreat that will provide a wonderful lifestyle for the purchaser. ”

The Old Manse has been thoughtfully refurbished to create an exquisite family home offering well-proportioned, light and bright rooms while retaining many of the period features including lovely fireplaces, panelled doors, cornicing and a sweeping staircase with cast iron balustrade.

The sitting room and dining room both benefit from a southerly aspect, excellent proportions and attractive fireplaces, with the spacious family kitchen very much forming the heart of the house. The bedrooms, all on the first floor, are serviced by three en-suites and a family bathroom.

The accommodation includes on the ground floor: vestibule, hall, sitting room, dining room, dining kitchen, cloakroom, side vestibule, boot room, pantry, boiler room, office, store, WC, utility room. On the first floor: principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom, bedroom 2 with en-suite, bedroom 3 with en-suite, two further bedrooms and family bathroom.

The separate Farleyer Steading is a beautifully finished steading conversion offering well-appointed accommodation all on one level. The Great Hall, with its imposing floor to ceiling stone fireplace, has an open plan kitchen with sitting and dining areas and would make an ideal space for entertaining.

There is a bedroom with dressing room and bathroom on the east side of the steading and the same on the west side, both accessed by their own separate external doors, offering ideal accommodation for visiting family and friends. The steading has underfloor heating throughout.

Enjoying an elevated south facing position, The Old Manse at Farleyer and Farleyer Steading have breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and hills beyond.

The garden extends to about two acres with a terrace leading directly from the house, providing an ideal setting for outdoor dining, with stone steps leading down to a pretty pond with a waterfall feature. The lawn is edged by a combination of herbaceous borders, shrubs and deciduous trees, providing year-round interest. There is a resident family of red squirrels, a source of great pleasure to the current owners.

The detached triple garage provides ample storage or alternatively could be converted to provide annex accommodation if desired, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent.

The property enjoys a highly scenic rural setting on the edge of the historic village of Dull and about four miles to the west of Aberfeldy in the heart of Highland Perthshire. The city of Perth is some 35 miles to the south.

The surrounding hills and glens provide interesting walking and climbing routes, water sports are available on the nearby Loch Tay, whilst there are golf courses at nearby Taymouth Castle Golf Club, Pitlochry and Dunkeld.
