Author's Home Offers A Little Bit Of Penzance In Invergowrie

Inspiring many a romantic novel, Over Pilmore House was built by the well-known writer Rosamunde Pilcher in an attractive rural location in the Carse of Gowrie, near Dundee. This exceptional country house is now for sale through Scottish property consultants CKD Galbraith.

Rosamunde Pilcher originally came from Cornwall where many of the houses have blue painted roofs hence why Over Pilmore has its own eye catching blue roof; making it a truly unique property in the area.

The house is full of charm and character, with three stunning reception rooms and six spacious bedrooms, two of which are en suite, set over two floors. There are many delightful features including stripped wooden floors and open fireplaces. The large kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the house and an outstanding space for socialising, complete with an Aga, central island and glazed doors leading out to a garden terrace.


The first floor also gives access to a spacious floored attic space, which is currently used as a home office and library and benefits from a shower room.
