Meikle Fardle Farm Cottage is a traditional property with three bedrooms, two appealing reception rooms and a south-facing aspect.
The rooms are generously sized with plenty of flexibility throughout. The cottage is beautifully presented with tasteful fixtures and fittings. It maintains the character and charm of a period property whilst having modern improvements such as double glazing.
Iain Paterson, who is handling the sale of the property for Galbraith, said: “This is a wonderful cottage which has been lovingly maintained by the current owners while retaining the charm of its traditional architecture. The setting of the property is absolutely wonderful – offering great privacy and tranquillity while also within easy reach of Meikleour, Blairgowrie and Dunkeld. The garden is delightful and the property is all on one level, which is likely to appeal to many buyers. There is also the potential to extend the cottage if desired, subject to the relevant permissions.”
The dual aspect kitchen/dining room and the cosy sitting room, with its wood-burning stove and wood panelling, are particularly welcoming rooms.
The kitchen has a good range of wall and base units and space for a dining table. The three pretty bedrooms are well proportioned and filled with natural light. The master bedroom at the eastern end of the cottage has a lovely view out over the garden and benefits from an en-suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom.
Meikle Fardle Farm Cottage sits within an attractive landscaped garden with lawns, colourful borders and mature broadleaved trees including productive fruit trees.
Adjacent to the house there is a substantial vegetable patch. Also in this part of the garden there is a wooden outbuilding with power supply and good levels of insulation, which is currently used as a workshop, but could also be used as a home office or craft room. The outbuilding has an area of decking, a pleasant spot to sit and enjoy the sunshine.
The owners have recorded more than 50 species of birds visiting or flying over the garden at various times.
To the east of the cottage lies the paddock which extends to 2.6 acres. Currently used for grazing horses, this paddock is bordered by mature trees and hedging which provide shelter and it could be used for many different purposes such as an extension to the garden, woodland or perhaps to create a wild garden. The property extends to 3.14 acres in all.
The cottage sits in a pleasant hamlet, Kirkton of Lethendy, between Dunkeld and Meikleour in rural Perthshire. The property has open and far-reaching views over the surrounding farmland but is also sheltered by areas of woodland.
The nearby town of Blairgowrie provides good day-to-day services including primary schools and a secondary school. The cities of Perth and Dundee are within easy reach, both of which offer a wide range of amenities and railway station. Dundee has an airport with regular services to London.
