This attractive four-bedroom farmhouse is perfect for family living, and offers the potential to convert or extend the attached steading, currently used as an artist’s studio and workshops.
Scott Holley, who is handling the sale on behalf of Galbraith said:
Blackhill Farm offers the purchaser a superb traditional home which has been sympathetically modernized and enjoys a secluded position in this beautiful part of Perthshire.
The current owners have begun the process of realising the development potential of the steading, and the local authority is supportive, in principal, of the architect’s concept. The outline plan proposes a substantial detached or semi-detached three-bedroom property with its own grounds. The steading could therefore provide further residential accommodation, an annexe for family members, or a holiday let in this popular area.
The house’s reception rooms are light and spacious, benefitting from a dual aspect, and with a large woodburning stove in the main family room, there is ample space for entertaining during all seasons. There is also a sitting room with a fireplace and attractive wooden flooring, a reading/music room, and a dining room with access to the garden.
The kitchen is generously equipped with an integrated oven, microwave and dishwasher, and a large picture window fills the room with light and provides views across the hill. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with a large en-suite shower room, and the remaining three double bedrooms are on the first floor. Two of these bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, and one an en-suite shower room. The master bedroom, with exposed wooden floors, has a walk-in dressing area.
The property is believed to have once served as a distillery for the nearby Blackhill House and it is understood that the steading used to house the watermill. The Cluny burn that runs gently alongside the garden would have once provided water for the distillery, and is now a lovely feature of the grounds.
With the nearby Strathtay Golf Club and a range of water sports, walking routes, fishing, and spectacular open countryside on the doorstep, this property would suit an adventurous, outdoorsy family. Also nearby is The Highland Chocolatier, and restaurants at The Inn on the Tay and The Grandtully Hotel.
The closest city is Perth, 30 miles away on the A9, and the nearer towns of Dunkeld, Pitlochry and Aberfeldy offer a full range of amenities such as banks, doctor’s surgery, supermarkets and schools. Train stations at Dunkeld and Pitlochry run direct services to Inverness and London King’s Cross.
Blackhill Farm is for sale through Galbraith for offers over £500,000.
