High-spec, contemporary home with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside
Built in 2009, 3 The Lane is a thoughtfully designed family home extending to about 359 square metres (3,800 square foot). It was designed by the award winning Perthshire architects, James Denholm Partnership, and built by Stephen Country Homes to create a traditionally styled house finished with a mixture of render and stone cladding beneath a slate roof. It has excellent levels of natural light which spreads throughout the house with its interlinking doors and full height windows.
The main reception rooms on the ground floor provide excellent space for entertaining whilst the design ensures that the rooms can be closed for a cosier environment. The kitchen is spacious with oak fitted cabinets beneath granite work surfaces with a good range of integrated appliances including two dishwashers, an electric range cooker with gas hob, a microwave, twin sinks and a spacious island. The breakfast room is adjacent to the kitchen with double French doors leading out to a terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. The sun room lies on the other side of the kitchen and is currently used as a small sitting room and formal dining area and as it links into the drawing room it provides a wonderful area for formal entertaining. In contrast the den provides the ideal environment to relax in with its open fire and bar area, ready for those who enjoy watching sports or to relax in after dinner. The office can convert into a fifth bedroom and is conveniently located immediately adjacent to the downstairs bathroom and together with the den would provide an ideal apartment for an elderly relative or guest.
The curved staircase leads up to a wonderful galleried landing with gas fire. With its excellent levels of natural light, it is currently used as a library. The master bedroom suite is generously proportioned with a cathedral ceiling and triple aspect views, although the principle view is over the balcony and across the valley. The dressing area has handcrafted wardrobes with plenty of storage before opening into a luxurious bathroom with twin sinks, large shower and double ended bath. There are three further good sized double bedrooms with en-suite showers and a smaller nursery currently used as a study. The attention to detail is evident throughout the finish of the shower rooms with recessed shelves in each shower, fully tiled rooms and natural light to each room (two via roof sun tunnels).
Garden The garden extends to just over 0.8 acres and approached through a beautifully crafted stone wall. The garden is principally lawn with some herbaceous borders and paved terraces, which are perfect for barbecues and outdoor entertaining. The gravel driveway incorporates a full turning circle at the front entrance and leads round to the double integral garage with electric up and over doors.
