Ploughmans Cottage, Rait PH2 7RT

Enjoying the ideal blend of a picture-perfect country home and modern luxury interiors, Ploughmans Cottage is a stylish and most charming four-bedroom, three-bathroom family home.

Built in 2016, the property won an Excellence in Design Award from the Braes of Gowrie Conservation Group for the skilful adaption of a modern building within a conservation design.

Nestled in the idyllic countryside of the Sidlaw foothills and Carse of Gowrie, the conservation village of Rait offers a picturesque setting only 8-miles from the city of Perth and 13-miles from the city of Dundee.

The crisp rendered facade, conservation sash-and-case windows and slate roof make a welcoming first impression. Once inside, you are welcomed by a generous reception hallway, where the muted décor and underfloor heating (a feature found throughout the ground floor) offer the first flavour of the quality interiors to follow. Enjoying a large footprint and double- aspect windows with garden views is the living room. Fitted with a snug neutral carpet, the room offers a warm and welcoming ambiance. The impressive dining kitchen sits adjacent and flows through French doors onto the rear garden, ideal for year-round entertaining and family life. The contemporary country-styled kitchen boasts an impressive range of fitted Shaker wall and base units, framed by solid wood worktops and tasteful metro tiling, all lit by integrated downlights. It neatly hides an integrated dishwasher with space for a Range cooker, American-style fridge/ freezer and undercounter space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The room allows for a large table and chairs, enjoying garden views. On the other side of the hallway is the sunny master suite boasting excellent fitted wardrobe space and a generous en-suite shower room. The ground floor also houses the second double bedroom and a stylish bathroom fitted with a P-shaped shower bath and matching WC-suite.

Upstairs, this family home comes with two bedrooms (a double and generous single), a dressing room, and a contemporary en- suite shower room, as well as outstanding fitted storage and delightful views. All the bedrooms and the en-suite have been fashioned in the same tasteful style as the rest of the property. Radiators on the first floor and underfloor heating on the ground floor, powered by an air sourced heat pump, plus conservation double glazing, create a warm yet very cost-efficient living environment all year round.

Externally, in addition to the low- maintenance front and side garden, the property enjoys a beautifully landscaped rear garden. Here, a sunny and large paved terrace provides a wonderful space for alfresco dining, framed by a stone wall with raised flowerbeds and integrated seating areas. Private off-road parking is provided across the road on a large gravel driveway for four cars.

Extras: All fitted floorcoverings, light fittings, blinds, the integrated dishwasher, and the Range cooker are included in the sale. EPC C
