Property Description

Generous detached farmhouse in Pitkeathly Mains, just two miles from Bridge of Earn, boasting a wonderfully unique home with four/five bedrooms, four/three reception  areas, a breakfasting kitchen, and three bathrooms, plus extensive gardens and a field extending to just over three acres, a double garage, and a multi-car driveway.

This four/five-bedroom, three-bathroom detached farmhouse offers wonderfully spacious and flexible, family orientated accommodation over two floors, and it is set in just over three acres of gardens and a field, allowing the new owner to fully immerse themselves in the rural lifestyle. Situated in Pitkeathly Mains, the property is surrounded by the picturesque Perthshire countryside, with wonderful open views from all windows, and Bridge of Earn lies just over two miles away, where reliable everyday amenities can be found.

A practical entrance vestibule invites you into the home and leads through to an airy, welcoming hallway, where to home’s attractive interiors are introduced, with neutral décor and a warm oak floor. The hall further benefits from two built-in storage cupboards.

The house accommodates two generous and airy reception rooms: a living room and a sitting room. The living room occupies an impressive footprint which allows for endless configurations of lounge furniture, all arranged around a wall-set, Stovax Riva log-burning stove which creates an ideal focal point in the space, and a warm atmosphere during the colder months. The room is illuminated by dual-aspect windows, including a large bay window, which all capture natural light throughout the day and frame wonderful open views of the surrounding countryside.

The sitting room neighbours the living room and offers a versatile second reception area that could be used in a number of different ways to suit the new owner’s needs. It is currently being used as a separate dining room, perfect for dining separately from the kitchen, and could lend itself to a children’s playroom, a family/TV room, or a fifth bedroom, if ground- floor sleeping accommodation is required.

The open-plan breakfasting kitchen and dining room is sure to appeal to those who love to host dinner parties, with an exceptionally generous space that can comfortably accommodate a large dining table and chairs for multiple diners, alongside additional furniture. The kitchen offers room for a breakfast bar or a small bistro table and chairs, perfect for morning coffee, busy weekday breakfasts, and socialising while cooking. It comes very well-appointed with a selection of timeless, cream-coloured wall and base cabinets, ample black granite and wood worktops, with an Etherium Strata worktop on the island, and splashback panels and tiling. Neatly integrated appliances comprise an oven, a microwave, an induction hob, an extractor fan, and a dishwasher, whilst provision is made for a freestanding fridge/freezer. The kitchen is supplemented by a utility room across the hall, housing additional modern cabinetry and wood worktops, and space for laundry appliances.

The home’s four double bedrooms all continue the attractive presentation of the preceding accommodation with tasteful décor, with the principal enjoying wood flooring, whilst the remaining three are carpeted for optimum comfort underfoot. All four bedrooms boast good-sized built-in wardrobes, with the principal  boasting two and further benefitting from a four- piece en-suite bathroom. The smallest bedroom is currently being utilised as a hobby room and would be ideal as a home office for those who work or study from home.

The principal bedroom’s four-piece en-suite bathroom comprises a bathtub with a shower attachment, a large corner shower enclosure with a rainfall showerhead, a basin set into vanity storage, and a WC. The separate family bathroom, which can also be found on the first floor, comes complete with a bathtub with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, a wall-mounted basin, a WC, a bidet, and a vanity cupboard. Finally, a shower room on the ground-floor completes the washrooms on offer and comprises a three-piece suite. All three washrooms also feature towel radiators. The home is kept warm by a ceramic electric system and the windows are double-glazed throughout.

Externally, the house is perfectly complemented by generous grounds, extending to approximately three acres, including a field – ideal for those with horses - two orchard areas, ponds, and an area of wildflower meadow. The gardens immediately surrounding the house comprise a spacious, well-kept lawn with a lovely leafy border, and two large patio areas for outdoor seating and summer barbecues. Excellent private parking is provided by a double garage (with an attached workshop) and a multi-car driveway.

Extras: All fitted floor coverings, window blinds, light fittings, and integrated kitchen appliances will be included in the sale.

Pitkeathly Mains Farmhouse boasts a tranquil, rural setting just two miles from Bridge of Earn, a small Perthshire town on the southern banks of the River Earn, some four miles south of Perth and forty miles north of Edinburgh. Historically, the town (and its medieval sandstone bridge) was an important landmark on the journey between the two, but today the town is bypassed by the M90. Bridge of Earn is served by an excellent range of local amenities, which include a small supermarket with a Post Office and an ATM, a pharmacy, a hairdresser, a beauty salon, and a garage. For eating and drinking, the town supports a local bakery serving traditional homemade produce to sit-in or take-away, a charming bistro and two village inns, plus a choice of restaurants and takeaways. Bridge of Earn places great emphasis on sport and fitness with a Community Sports Hub and a fantastic range of facilities. In addition to public parks, green spaces and children’s play areas, the town boasts a football ground, an all-weather pitch for tennis, hockey and football, as well as a thriving bowling club. The Perthshire Hockey Club also trains on the all-weather pitches at Kilgraston School, which is one of the top independent schools in the country and is nestled on the edge of the town. Other highly regarded independent schooling options, in addition to Kilgraston School, include Strathallan and Craigclowan. State schooling is also available locally in the Bridge of Earn, followed by secondary schooling in Perth. The town enjoys fantastic road links owing to its close proximity to the M90, as well as regular bus services into Perth and Kinross.

Bridge of Earn, Abernethy, Glenfarg

KINROSS-SHIRE has an identity distinct from Perthshire, with Kinross and Milnathort separated by just a mile.
The bulk of the countys facilities are concentrated on fast-expanding Kinross, with the Loch Leven Community Campus and High School at the heart of the community.
Much of the recent new-build developments have been aimed at buyers commuting to Edinburgh via the nearby M90 but there is a diverse range of property in and around the town. Potentially, an additional 500-plus homes could emerge to meet anticipated demand by 2028.
There is no shortage of local amenities in terms of shops, bars and restaurants. Golf and curling are among the sporting offerings.
The town developed on the banks of Loch Leven, famed for the island castle which held Mary Queen of Scots captive, and the lochside RSPB Vane Farm Nature Reserve is a must-visit for locals and visitors alike.
The circular 12-mile heritage trail is another asset which is perfect for lovers of the great outdoors.
As the name suggests, Bridge of Earn was a traditional river crossing point, with a bridge in place since at least the early years of the 14th Century.
The village was a staging post on the Edinburgh to Perth route and in recent decades it has grown as a popular dormitory town within easy reach of the Fair City.
Independent school Kilgraston is located on the outskirts of the village.
The former hospital site and nearby farmland at Oudenarde has long been identified for major development.
The two-mile stretch of the Baiglie Straight leads towards historic Abernethy and Newburgh and the old road to the by-passed and quiet village of Glenfarg. These communities have undergone peripheral expansion in recent years.
At the heart of Abernethy is a 73-foot Round Tower which may date back to the 11th or even 9th Century. The village, like Newburgh, is on the border between Perth and Kinross and Fife, and each is blessed with a range of services.
