Bride suffered frostbite and a sprained ankle, but later recovered sufficiently to help the Carpathia's wireless operator to transmit the large number of personal messages from the survivors of the disaster.
Stormont is an impressive C-listed house with attractive private grounds of about 0.4 acres, situated in a superb location in beautiful Scone, Perthshire. Harold Bride lived at Stormont from 1934-1944 and a blue plaque commemorates this historical interest.
Scone was the ancient capital of Scotland and the coronation site of Scotland's kings.
Stormont is a lovely family home with two generous reception rooms and four well-proportioned bedrooms.
Of particular interest is the sitting room with its lovely open fireplace and dual aspect windows overlooking the lovely garden and hills beyond.
Iain Paterson, handling the sale for Galbraith, said: “Stormont represents a fantastic opportunity for a rural lifestyle. The property’s charm has been preserved through the array of traditional features remaining throughout, such as the beautiful sash and case windows.
“Scone is an incredibly picturesque part of Highland Perthshire, offering a great community vibe. It is the perfect base for families keen on outdoor pursuits and a rural way of life.”
Stormont sits within a superb garden full of colour. The central lawn is surrounded by mature borders with well-tended roses and mature trees. There is a gravel parking area, and a stone-built garage providing ample storage space.
The house is well placed for access to Perth town centre where excellent transport links are available including a mainline railway station, bus station and local airport with regular links to Stansted.
