Rural Idyll With Woodland And Gardens

Galbraith is marketing a desirable rural house in the heart of the idyllic Angus countryside with its own woodland and gardens, offering a superb rural lifestyle.

Benshie Cottage is a detached property enjoying a secluded private setting within well-established grounds of about 1.75 acres including a vegetable garden, mature trees and borders as well as a beautiful area of mature woodland. 

The property is ideal for home working, with one office in the house and also a large timber-built home office in the garden, which could also be used as a gym or games room. The accommodation is very spacious and offers a flexible layout to suit a variety of family circumstances.

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

Benshie Cottage provides well-proportioned light-filled accommodation with generous reception space for entertaining and family living. The grounds are a delight, offering the opportunity to grow your own fruit and vegetables in part of the garden and there is a wonderful area of woodland which offers the ultimate space for woodland walks, habitat conservation and wildlife watching. Despite the tranquil setting this is a very accessible property just a mile from the A90 which links to the main cities of Scotland.

The main accommodation includes a sitting room, dining room, family room, breakfasting kitchen, sun room, utility, home office, store, four bedrooms, dressing room, en-suite shower room, , wet room and main bathroom. The house benefits from substantial improvement works carried out recently including a retiled roof, re-wiring, installation of some new windows and a new boiler.

Oathlaw is a small hamlet surrounded by beautiful Angus countryside. The Angus Glens, reaching into the Grampian mountains, are to the north, whilst to the south lies Finavon Hill and the village of Aberlemno, with its Pictish carved stones.

The property is highly accessible for the A90. The city of Dundee, with its airport offering direct flights to London and Belfast, is 30 minutes’ drive; Perth is 40 minutes and Aberdeen is less than an hour away.
