Kindrochet is positioned at the bridge end of Strathtay, a short walk from the village shop. The flat can be accessed via the front door by the roadside, where there is off street parking for two vehicles. The main house can be accessed via garden steps either to the front or side door. Parking for the main house is at the rear of the property next to the timber garage. The property has delightful garden grounds to the rear, predominantly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders, mature trees and flower beds. The peripheries of the garden lead down to the river bank.
Kindrochet is a two storey detached house of traditional stone and slate construction divided into a 1 bedroom flat (former retail premise and then a holiday let) and a 3 bedroom home. The flat has a wonderful main room with double height ceilings and would make a wonderful gallery or retail premise, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. The main house is generous in size and has a lovely outlook over the mature gardens and River Tay beyond. The open plan living/ kitchen room is a great space for entertaining and this property benefits from having bedrooms on the ground and first floor. The existing layout is very flexible and could easily be re-configured.
Whilst the property now requires repair and modernization, this is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a sizeable property in a wonderful location. The position lends itself to a retail premise thus presenting income potential subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Tourists are attracted to the area year round and the famous Highland Chocolatier is within close proximity to this property.
