Iain Paterson of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “The Gardener’s Cottage combines spacious and very attractive accommodation with wonderful gardens, offering great privacy and seclusion. The setting is peaceful and quiet yet the village of Methven is close by and the property is easily accessible to Crieff and Perth. The purchaser will be able to enjoy a wonderful rural lifestyle while being within easy reach of schools, shops and all amenities.”

The property is very well presented throughout, in particular the  cosy sitting room with wood burning stove.

There is also an excellent dining kitchen with fitted cabinetry, utility room, study and sunroom with lovely views out to the walled garden. Upstairs there are three well-proportioned double bedrooms served by a generous family bathroom, all very well presented.

The Gardener’s Cottage is about two miles from the pretty village of Methven, which has a shop, post office, primary school, doctor’s surgery and a couple of restaurants.

Just over 11 miles to the west is the thriving town of Crieff, while the centre of Perth is only 15 minutes by car, providing an extensive range of facilities including schools and a range of restaurants and cultural attractions.

Glasgow and Edinburgh are both just over an hour’s drive.

The Gardener’s Cottage is for sale through Galbraith for offers over £385,000.
