Logierait House is a delightful family house, formerly the Manse, dating back to the early 1700’s and lying to the west of Logierait Church. It is of traditional stone construction, with a harled and white painted exterior, under a slated roof. Logierait House has retained a wealth of period features including sash and case windows with predominantly working shutters, fireplaces, cornicing and panelled doors, all complimented by the pleasing scale of the rooms.
Logierait House offers well-proportioned, bright rooms over three floors, with the principal rooms enjoying beautiful outlooks over the garden and the river. On entering, the traditional charm of the house is immediately evident, with the staircase hall being in the centre of the house with doors leading to the two principal south-facing reception rooms with wood burning stoves. The breakfasting kitchen lies to the rear of the house and is very much the heart of the house with Aga, a former Victorian range being a delightful feature and open plan to the garden room, giving a light and airy dining area. The remaining accommodation on the ground floor includes a study, cloakroom, utility room and walk in pantry, which could alternatively be utilised as a boot room as it benefits from a door leading directly to the garden.
The bedrooms lie over the first and second floors. The principal bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, enjoys a double aspect and beautiful south-facing views. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor serviced by two bathrooms, together with a walk-in-linen cupboard, with the second floor providing two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

Vestibule. Hall. Drawing Room. Dining Room. Study. Breakfasting Kitchen with Aga and open plan to Garden Room. Utility Room. Cloakroom. Pantry/Bootroom.

GARDEN AND GROUNDS
Logierait House sits within a charming garden extending to about 1.27 acres which gives an established and attractive backdrop to the house. A driveway leads to a gravel sweep to the west of the house, providing ample parking, with a lawn beyond and stone steps down to the river bank. There are well stocked herbaceous borders by the house, giving wonderful colour and structure from Spring through to Autumn. To the east is a walled garden, with a fine collection of trees, productive vegetable beds, a hen house and garden shed. The lower garden has river frontage with a jetty giving access for boating and fishing.
The setting of Logierait House, on the edge of the village and next to the river, gives the opportunity to observe and enjoy a wealth of visiting wildlife from the subjects itself. These include red squirrels, otters, beavers, ospreys, pine martin and a range of water fowl including whooper swans, ducks and kingfishers.
To the west of the gravel sweep and adjacent to the driveway is the attractive and spacious hexagonal timber outbuilding under a cedar shingle roof. It provides garaging, workshop and a garden store. Lying immediately to the south of the outbuilding is a greenhouse.
