Set in the picturesque hamlet of Wolfhill in the scenic Perthshire countryside, Balcraig Cottage promises an exceptionally spacious and flexible family home in an idyllic rural location. The detached cottage has already been developed to create an additional reception room and double bedroom with en suite shower room, and, owing to its vast rear garden there is further scope to construct an annex or a separate dwelling within the grounds, subject to obtaining the correct permissions. The cottage benefits from private parking for at least four cars and a solar thermal system, which provides a reliable hot water supply and lowers energy bills.
Welcoming you into the south-facing cottage is a sunny porch, which flows into a good-sized hall. To the left is the first of four double bedrooms, which enjoys dual- aspect windows to the south and west. Currently used a home office, the space boasts a wood-burning stove set within a traditional fireplace, and flanked by a classic press. The hall flows into the inviting dining room, which also benefits from a south-facing aspect and another traditional fireplace. The room provides a convivial setting for everyday dining and entertaining, adjacent to the breakfasting kitchen. Tucked around the corner, the farmhouse-inspired kitchen offers extensive fitted storage and workspace, plus a neat breakfast bar with seating for two. Integrated appliances include an electric hob, an extractor hood, a single oven/grill and dishwasher. There is space for an undercounter fridge, while the separate utility room houses a freestanding fridge freezer and a washing machine, plus a gleaming Belfast sink. Just off the utility room is a three-piece bathroom. Reached via the dining room, the former garage/workshop has been converted to create a large living room, with south-facing windows to the front and patio doors to the rear.
A contemporary log stove in the corner of the room makes a striking statement and fills the space with a warm, cosy glow. The dual-aspect double bedroom, just off the living room, boasts its own en-suite shower room and allows access to an enormous loft space, which promises fantastic storage. Upstairs there are two spacious double bedrooms, both of which enjoy south-facing dormer windows and beautiful views to the Sidlaw Hills. Completing this level is a bright three-piece shower room.
The vast, mature garden extends to the sides and rear of the cottage, and features a lawn, a patio and a substantial vegetable plot, plus two greenhouses and a garden shed. Owing to its size and position in the far-left corner of the garden, the vegetable plot offers potential to create a separate building plot with private access, subject to obtaining the correct permissions.
