Contemporary 5 bedroom house in majestic position with views towards Loch Tay.
Built in a majestic position, at circa 300 meters (900 feet) above sea level and situated about two miles to the southeast of the village of Kenmore, Tombuie House is a contemporary 5-bedroom house built to a traditional design by renowned architects, the Denholm Partnership.
Facing west and built on a deliberately chosen site designed to maximise the views over Loch Tay to Ben Lawers, Schiehallion and the mountains of Glen Lyon, the house sits at the heart of over an acre of enclosed garden laid down mainly to lawn. The principle route of access to the house is via a hardcore track which leads for about 1,000 meters from the A827 public road about a mile east of Kenmore.
Built on an L-shaped plan, the principal elevation includes gabled central bays on the east (rear) and west (front) elevations and is of stone construction beneath pitched slate roofs with overhanging eaves. The perpendicular elevation is both timber-framed and clad and also beneath a pitched slate roof. The house was completed in 2011 and occupied in 2012.
The internal accommodation is designed to maximise both the outstanding views and penetration of natural light, and is well laid out for contemporary family living. Features of the house include a spacious open plan kitchen, sitting and dining room, polished hardwood floors, ceiling cornices and panelled doors with architraves, the accommodation (as shown on the floor plans) includes three reception rooms and five bedrooms including two bedroom suites.
