Drumlochy House, Near Blairgowrie PH10 6TD
Nestled in the hills above Blairgowrie, with magnificent views across the Angus countryside, Drumlochy House, promises a unique rural retreat with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and multiple reception rooms. Enveloped by landscaped gardens and built to a superior standard, the original 1970s detached house was designed by Ric Russell OBE of Nicoll Russell Studios to fit snugly into the hillside, with its floors following the natural slope of the land.
Incredible double-height spaces underneath the distinctive mono-pitch roofs create a wonderful sense of light and space throughout the home. In 2006, award-winning architects, Nicoll Russell Studios, sympathetically extended and upgraded the property using galvanised steel and glass, plaster and natural oak to create a sharp, clean look.
Drumlochy House is approached along a private no- through road, which is maintained by way of a shared fund. Welcoming you into the home is an impressive hall, where the home's minimalist style and generous proportions are instantly apparent. Lit by multiple windows to two sides, as well as a triple-glazed skylight, this wonderfully airy entrance flows openly into a stunning double-height living room. The living room boasts floor-to-ceiling dual-aspect windows framing tranquil vistas of the surrounding countryside and at the heart of the room is a contemporary log-burning stove creating a cosy atmosphere in the colder months. Steps from the hall lead up to a kitchen adjoined by a galleried dining room, which overlooks the living room and takes full advantage of its picturesque outlook. Perfectly designed for year-round entertaining, the dining room also enjoys sliding doors onto the garden and open access into the neighbouring kitchen. Characterised by dual south-facing windows, the sleek kitchen has been styled to seamlessly compliment the white and natural wood finish and comes fitted with modern cabinetry and generous workspace. The space includes an integrated dishwasher and ample scope for freestanding goods.
Leading off the kitchen is a south-facing garden room with an adjoining storage area benefiting from external access. In the triple-aspect garden room, floor-to-ceiling glazing visually links the interior to the exterior and sliding doors connect to the garden. Also located on the ground floor is an immaculate shower room and a discreet utility room. Clad in oak to create a feature timber box', the utility room houses excellent additional storage, a freestanding washing machine and a fridge.
A cantilevered oak-staircase from the hall leads up to a first-floor landing, which in turn affords access to four double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes. The south-facing master bedroom boasts dual- aspect windows yielding scenic rural views, while bedrooms 3 & 4 are also supplemented with mezzanine levels. Accessible via a hatch and drop- down ladder, the bright and airy mezzanine levels beneath the mono-pitch roof boast dual windows, lighting and power sockets, and offer fantastic study and/or storage areas. The well-appointed family bathroom is equipped with a toilet and basin suite, a towel warmer, a shower enclosure and a bathtub. Oil-fired central heating, underfloor heating, partially upgraded insulation and double/ triple glazing (windows were replaced in 2007, garden room - full height, three aspect windows and patio door added 2007, living room and dining room full height windows and patio doors replaced 2016) ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
The house is enveloped by secluded gardens with breathtaking open views. A suntrap terrace also hugs the property, creating a perfect space for al fresco dining. The gravelled driveway provides excellent private parking. EPC Rating - E.
