DESCRIPTION
Lochay is an attractive rural house enjoying a southerly outlook over its extensive gardens and grounds and onto the surrounding countryside. Originally a traditional cottage, Lochay was significantly refurbished and extended some 40 years ago, together with the development and establishment of the gardens resulting in a wonderful country home offering privacy and seclusion, yet within easy reach of Crieff and highly commutable to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and both Perth and Stirling. Subject to obtaining the necessary consents, Lochay could be reconfigured and further extended to create a country house of greater scale.

The accommodation lies over two floors and comprises:-

Ground Floor:
Hall, dining room open to kitchen, 3 bedrooms, bathroom

First Floor:
Sitting room, bedroom with en-suite

External pantry, garden WC, boiler store and double garage (with floored attic).

GARDEN AND GROUNDS
The gardens and grounds of Lochay are a particular feature and provide a most attractive backdrop to the house. Extending to some 2.04 acres (0.82 hectares) the gardens and grounds are carefully enclosed by a selection of mature trees and a stone wall giving great privacy whilst the southern boundary has intermittent planting giving the house and grounds the most outstanding southerly views. A pair of solid wooden gates lead to the driveway with an extensive parking area to the south-west of the house. Beyond is the sweeping lawn, inter-dispersed with mature trees and shrubs giving wonderful structure to the grounds. There is a woodland to the west and a fine collection of mature rhododendrons and azaleas through the garden giving wonderful colour in late spring. Further, the garden is well stocked with daffodil bulbs giving a burst of colour at the start of spring. Unusually, the garden benefits from an outdoor swimming pool situated within the south lawn and from where the views can be fully enjoyed. To the rear is a terrace edged with a well-stocked border.
