Peacefully positioned in an idyllic riverside setting sat on top a hill above the banks of the majestic River Tay, this is a charming south-west facing whitewashed, detached stone cottage in Highland Perthshire. The small, historic ferry boat hamlet of Pitnacree is next to Strathtay and Grandtully and only 10 minutes from Pitlochry and Aberfeldy, and 12 minutes to Dunkeld. Both Pitlochry and Dunkeld have direct trains to Edinburgh and are also on the Caledonian Sleeper line to London. Despite being only 5 minutes from the A9, the property is enveloped by rolling hills and lush countryside, it offers a tranquil lifestyle with stunning views and privacy.
With a large garden and direct access via steps to the river, the property is ideal for the great outdoors lifestyle. There is a big outbuilding that has been set-up for great extra storage or opportunity to add more accommodation and/or outside office space.
Exuding a timeless charm from the minute you enter, the cottage has been recently upgraded throughout. To the left of the entrance hallway lies the enchanting open dining living room with a spectacular double-height ceiling. Enjoying the south-west facing aspect, sunlight streams in through the two sets of French doors which all open and are set into the original arched window frames and exposed stonework. Along with the exposed stone chimney breast and original doors, they give the room a traditional rustic yet comforting feel. The soft décor and carpeting allow these natural elements to shine and help to add to this ambience, as does the wood-burning stove set in a black tiled hearth under an oak mantle.
Above the dining living room and accessed by chic white floating steps is a mezzanine floor currently utilised as a light and airy open office with a cosy seating area could also be used for extra sleeping space. Overlooking the dining living room and boasting leafy views, it is a delightful retreat. The property has full fibre broadband internet, ensuring great connection to the outside world.
Returning to the ground floor a long rear carpeted hallway takes you from the dining living room past a well-appointed contemporary family bathroom. Finished in natural tones that include mosaic tiles, it features a white suite of a WC, washbasin, and corner shower enclosure, along with a chrome towel radiator.
From here, you pass a useful hallway cupboard before coming to the two appealing south-west facing carpeted double bedrooms. Decorated in a warm neutral colour palette, they each enjoy delightful views over the garden from the deep-set original windows, and with built-in wardrobes and a generous footprint allow for plentiful storage. The hallway then takes you via the dining living room to the modern kitchen.
The enclosed south-west facing garden is a breathtaking and serene sanctuary with panoramic views across the stunning open countryside and direct access to the river with ownership of a stretch of bank of the river, which comes with riparian fishing rights, easy access for using boats, kayaks, canoes and paddle boards for a river ride down to Dunkeld. Please note, this property is in a non risk flood area. Seamlessly integrating with the natural environment, it is mainly laid to lawn and bordered by established shrubs and trees that bring an evolution of colour as the seasons change. A gravel driveway offers ample off-street and secure parking behind new electric wooden gates with keypad and fob.
The outbuildings for storage with plumbing and electrics with Belfast sink, washing machine and dishwasher with space for an extra freezer/refrigerator. There is a wood store and a bin store.
