Little Deuchar stands in a beautiful peaceful rural setting in the idyllic Angus countryside at the foot of Glenogil, to the north of the fertile agricultural area known as the Vale of Strathmore. With high levels of privacy and seclusion, the property enjoys excellent open views over the surrounding hills and countryside. Local services and facilities are available in the three nearby Angus towns of Forfar, Brechin and Kirriemuir, all of which are within a comfortable drive of the property. In terms of city amenities Dundee is about twenty-three miles to the south, whilst Aberdeen is approximately fifty miles north via the A90 dual carriageway which is easily accessible. The glorious countryside that surrounds Little Deuchar is home to an array of wildlife and, for the outdoor enthusiast, offers ready access to a wide range of recreational pursuits including walking, cycling, riding and golf, with many highly rated courses within easy reach including Edzell, Alyth, Forfar and Carnoustie.
Challenging shooting and fishing may be taken locally whilst the pretty Angus glens such as Isla, Prosen, Clova and Lethnot are temptingly accessible. In terms of days out the red cliffs at Arbroath and the stunning sandy beaches at Lunan Bay and St Cyrus are well within striking distance along with a number of interesting National Trust for Scotland properties, including the House of Dun at Montrose and the JM Barrie house at Kirriemuir, once home to the renowned creator of Peter Pan. Good state schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at the High School of Dundee and Robert Gordons in Aberdeen. There are railway stations in Montrose, Arbroath, Carnoustie, Laurencekirk and Dundee, with Aberdeen Airport and Edinburgh Airports within comfortable driving distance. The busy regional airport at Dundee also offers a good range of short haul flights.
Little Deuchar is an exceptional country property centred around a very pretty and deceptively spacious detached house which is thought to have begun its life as a double farm cottage dating from around 1850. The house stands in a lovely sizeable garden, adjacent to which is a good three acre paddock complete with two timber stable blocks, all with the attraction of private river frontage on to the Noran Water and stunning country views from all parts of the property. Of a most attractive painted harled exterior under a slated roof, and with charming gothic style windows along the southern elevation, the accommodation is centred around the stunning and spacious sitting room with stove, which opens on to both the family / sun room and dining room. Complementing the excellent reception rooms is the spacious fitted breakfasting kitchen with utility room off which gives direct internal access through to the garage. The delightful principal bedroom benefits from en-suite facilities with two further well proportioned bedrooms. An excellent recently upgraded family bathroom, a further cloakroom and the hallway complete the accommodation, which has the added advantage of being laid out over one level. The property benefits from double glazing and LPG gas central heating. Subject to all consents and permissions being obtained, it is thought that there may be scope for the creation of additional accommodation in the garage area to the rear of the property.
