Nestled within the stunning Perthshire countryside, this beautifully crafted house sits privately within landscaped gardens and enjoys stunning views towards the River Tay.

With its very own observatory pod, where the night skies and star watching can be enjoyed, this property is a stargazer’s dream.

Netherkirk House was crafted by the renowned designer Ulrik Lawson to offer a family home full of original charm and blended with a modern continental feel. 

Designed in the Scottish Vernacular architectural style and using traditional materials, there are many eye catching features that create such a unique property. A beautiful curved front door sets the scene for what to expect inside with hand run deep cornicing also contributing to the soft, warm and welcoming feel of the house.

From gothic windows, a handmade gothic staircase constructed of Dunkeld Elm, a stone archway between the dining area and sitting room, a glass wall in the dining area to enjoy gardens and countryside views, as well as wide oak flooring in the kitchen and stone flagged flooring in the hall, Netherkirk exudes character throughout.

Scott Holley, handling the sale for Galbraith in Perth, said: “Netherkirk House is a really beautiful and individual property offering fantastic family living with four bedrooms and three public rooms, and is well laid out for entertaining. 

“The idea behind Netherkirk House is a brilliant blend of capturing the benefits of many traditional elements of an older property but with modern design concepts. This has been wonderfully achieved in this house. Given the wealth of accommodation on offer combined with its location and stunning outlook over the scenic Perthshire countryside and the River Tay beyond, we expect a lot of interest from families seeking a lifestyle move.”

A lovely sun room, designed by Mozolowski & Murray, seamlessly brings the outdoors in, whilst the covered terrace adds a continental feel with five stone pillars and archways, a perfect patio area where the elevated views of the delightful gardens and surrounding countryside can be enjoyed. 

The property is located within the conservation village of Rait which provides quick and easy access to Perth, Dundee and the A90.  There is a wide selection of cultural activity close by including theatres, art galleries, arts centres, science centre and the UK’s only full time public observatory and museums.  

The immediate countryside provides a great choice of recreational opportunities including some wonderful walking and cycling direct from the doorstep of Netherkirk House. The ski slopes of Glenshee are within easy reach and the hills and glens of Perthshire provide a rich environment for many country and outdoor pursuits.
