The gardens are beautifully secluded and provide a peaceful setting with open countryside to the north and east. A sweeping drive into the old walled garden leads towards the house. On entering, to the immediate left are the old Gardeners stores. These are currently used as a car port, stores and workshop and part has been converted for office use. Further ahead is a purpose built timber constructed two bay car port with concrete floor and an attached enclosed garden store with electricity and water supply.
A pretty summer house with a patio and landscaping adjacent is situated on the lawn and offers an ideal place for summer dining and relaxation. A further patio is located adjacent to the family room. To the rear of the house, further areas of lawn can be found, together with an enclosed dog yard. The mature gardens have a variety of mature trees, borders, shrubs and lawn.
Planning permission had been previously granted, planning reference - 08/01138/FUL (now lapsed) for creating a dwelling from the Gardeners stores. The owner has considered further development of the Gardeners stores and the potential for the creation of 3 new additional dwellings within the grounds. No formal planning application has been submitted for this, however, plans have been created for possible proposals. Perth & Kinross Planning Department have responded to a pre-application planning enquiry for these proposals with encouraging feedback based on current criteria and policy (further detail available upon request).
Subject to obtaining formal planning permission, the Gardeners stores offer potential development for alternative use, should permission be granted, cottage accommodation for extended family living or holiday letting may be feasible.
