Riverside Retreat In Perthshire

Galbraith is pleased to bring to the market Braecock Mill, a superb rural property with fishing rights on the Tay, attractive mixed woodland, a wonderful lake with island and summerhouse, and glorious views over the rolling countryside of Perthshire. The property extends to about 25.7 acres.

Scott Holley of Galbraith, who is handling the sale of the property, said:

Braecock Mill offers an exceptional lifestyle for those with equestrian, fishing, conservation, wildlife or smallholding interests. 

The property has a particularly attractive and private situation, nestled between the Tay and surrounding countryside. Braecock Mill has been very well maintained and the sumptuous interiors reflect the owners’ great care and attention to detail.

The grounds are a truly outstanding feature of the property, offering woodland walks, a stocked lake for boating and fishing, river fishing on the famous Tay and paddocks for those with equestrian interests. Despite the secluded and beautiful setting, Braecock Mill is easily accessible to Perth and Dunkeld.

Braecock Mill is a delightful steading conversion which retains its character and charm while providing spacious accommodation for modern family living, including garden room, sitting room, dining hall, breakfasting kitchen, utility room, shower room, five bedrooms, two en-suite shower rooms, family bathroom and study.

The former horse mill is an impressive circular sitting room with a wood burning stove and stone surround, windows on all sides and the original ceiling height providing a magnificent reception space. 

The adjacent dining hall is equally impressive with beautifully detailed wood panelling and doors leading onto the south facing inner courtyard. The breakfasting kitchen has a good range of fitted cabinetry, a dishwasher, fridge freezer, built-in oven and a traditional range. 

Beyond the kitchen is a rear entrance with a shower room, utility room and useful storage.

The ground floor has a bedroom wing, with two ground floor bedrooms served by a family bathroom. The larger of these two bedrooms has a dual aspect and doors onto the courtyard.

Upstairs the master bedroom has a walk-in dressing room and an en-suite. The large first floor landing has been cleverly used as a home study. There is a first-floor terrace offering superb views over the gardens, land and countryside.

The beautiful, landscaped gardens adjacent to the house include a vegetable garden, lawns and mature trees, bordered by open countryside. 

The stretch of the River Tay within the grounds of the property is owned to the mid-point, with the right to fish for brown trout. 

The remaining 16 acres of land provide a wealth of interest and amenity. There is a beautiful lake, stocked with brown trout, which attracts a wide variety of wildlife. This is ideal for boating, fishing and for those interested in conservation and wildlife habitat. A pretty island with trees is positioned within the centre of the lake. There is a summer house together with a range of deciduous and coniferous woodland with delightful areas for walking. Grassland surrounds the lake, which makes for a charming parkland setting.

For those with equestrian or smallholding interests, the open fronted tractor shed offers the opportunity for conversion into stables or for the keeping of livestock. The paddocks extend to about 7.12 acres, with the overall landholding around 25.7 acres.

Braecock Mill is located by the village of Caputh, 12 miles from Perth and just over 5 miles from Dunkeld, offering a highly convenient and accessible rural location.
