Carpow Farmhouse is a delightful country property enjoying impressive views over the surrounding countryside, down to the River Tay and north to the Sidlaw hills. The original cottage, of stone construction under a slated roof has been sympathetically extended, resulting in a well-proportioned family home.
The central hall leads directly to the dining room which enjoys a double aspect to the south and west and is partly open plan to the charming sitting room which enjoys the outstanding views over the garden and down towards the river. The kitchen is reached directly from the hall and has a door leading to a conservatory which opens directly into the garden.
The bedrooms lie within the extension and comprise a well proportioned principal bedroom with French windows leading out to the garden. A bathroom is adjacent to this room. In addition there are two further bedrooms, a bathroom and a study.
Lying to the north-west of the house is a pretty, stone built outbuilding under a slated roof and serviced with both electricity and water. It provides a garage with an up and over door and a concrete floor. In addition there is a tool store and adjacent tack room. To the rear is an open fronted lean-to, constructed of profile sheeting with a mono pitch roof. The outbuilding offers development potential to create annex accommodation, studio or holiday let, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
GARDENS, GROUNDS AND PADDOCK
Carpow Farmhouse extends to about 1.82 acres. Immediately surrounding the house is a well-tended garden providing an in keeping backdrop to this charming house. It is principally down to lawn partly enclosed by hedging, with a number of well stocked borders. Lying to the west is an extensive parking area flanked by a well established pond.
Lying beyond the access road is mature woodland extending to about 0.86 acres giving a wonderful amenity to the house.
Available separately and immediately to the north of the garden is a paddock of some 2.41 acres, enclosed by a stock proof fence, with a field shelter constructed of timber box profiled sheeting.
Further land may be available under separate negotiation.
The woodland and paddock are designated as a Scheduled Monument (Carpow Roman Fortress SM2275) under The Ancient Monuments Acts.
