Croftinloan Farm was historically a working farm and now presents an excellent array of accommodation offering much flexibility. At the heart of the farm is the main farmhouse with its attractive Pitlochry stone exterior and warm and welcoming interior. The property offers a wonderful family home with generous reception and entertaining space. The dining kitchen is a naturally bright room of extensive proportion and offers a magnificent space for both family living and entertaining. The warm and inviting sitting room has a wood burning stove and original pitch pine panelling. The family room has a door to the courtyard via a covered archway. This room could be utilised as an additional sitting room/office or playroom. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor offering flexibility for extended family or guests and a further three bedrooms on the first floor. The accommodation comprises:
Open plan kitchen/dining room, family room, sitting room, study, two double bedrooms, shower room and utility.
Three double bedrooms, shower room.
Opposite the main farmhouse is a delightful cottage, which is currently utilised as a successful holiday let. The accommodation, over one floor, comprises:
Two double bedrooms, dining room, living room, kitchen, shower room and stores.
Round House Barn
Adjoining the main farmhouse is a converted barn, currently utilised as a showroom with office space featuring the original exposed beams. The property has also been fitted for residential use with an open plan sitting room, dining room/kitchen, shower room, with the option to create two bedrooms. Planning permission also allows for the original round house to be rebuilt forming a further bedroom with en-suite.
Garden and Grounds
Central to the farm is a traditional cobbled courtyard which provides ample parking with attractive boreders. The design of the garden is such that, if preferred, it can be sectioned off to allow all the properties to have their own private grounds. To the east of the garden is a young orchard with a range of fruit trees. To the north is an area of raised beds, along with a pretty seating area from where to enjoy the summer sun. A further outbuilding is located here which is currently in a derelict condition and may be suitable for further development into either a garden room or studio, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. Further details relating to the planning permission can be viewed via the Perth & Kinross Council Planning Portal under reference; 13/00419/FLL.
To the rear of the main farmhouse is the former dairy building, currently utilised as storage, it benefits from planning permission to create a further three bedroom property with three reception rooms.
