Offers Around £575,000 Old Dunbarney Manse Road

Bridge Of Earn PH2 9DY

House - detached | 7 Bedrooms

Old Dunbarney is a former Manse, situated on one of the finest sites within the village of Bridge of Earn. It is located on the northern most boundary of the village and enjoys open views over the surrounding countryside. There is a wide selection of local amenities including a convenience shop with newsagents, baker, pharmacy and Post Office, social and leisure facilities within a short walking distance from the dwelling. The local primary school is also a few minutes walk away. Situated four miles south of Perth, the house has straightforward access by car to the M90 motorway system to Perth, the city bypass and to Edinburgh, making this a superb commuting location. The area is very popular due to its close proximity to some of the finest independent schools in Perthshire such as Kilgraston, Craigclowan and Strathallan schools and also has many fine golf courses in the surrounding area.

The house is deceptively spacious and must be viewed to fully appreciate the generous sized rooms, which can be adaptable in their use, and can provide 7 double bedrooms yet still retaining 4 public rooms. It was built circa 1777 and subsequently extended in 1836 and has retained a high level of its period styling and features throughout, including fire places and surrounds, detailed ceiling cornicing, a wrought iron balustrade on the main staircase and sash and case windows. The sun room, located off the modern family dining kitchen, benefits from double glazing and has a beautiful view over open fields, the Earn Valley, and Moncrieffe Hill. The accommodation is heated by gas fired central heating, and a living flame gas fire in the large sitting room, as back up if required. There are open fireplaces in some of the other rooms although they have not been in recent use.

The property is in a category C group along with the nearby church and outbuildings. It is set back from Manse Road and accessed via a tarmac, tree-lined drive which is shared by only 3 dwellings in all. The extensive garden is mainly south facing and enclosed behind a stone built wall, with timber fence screening on the south boundary. The gardens have been well tended, comprising mainly of lawn, with a small orchard, mature plants and trees and established pathways.

To the rear of the building there is a small grass drying area and a grass paddock which could be suitable for small ponies or other smaller livestock.

A quick glance at the floor plan can only illustrate the room layouts therefore viewing is strongly advised to fully appreciate the prime location and the overall benefits this family home has to offer.

***The current owners are renovating the adjacent steading for their new home and all external structures including the roof and boundary fences will be completed by the end of November***
