HISTORICAL NOTE Inchmartine was given by William the Lion to his brother David, Earl of Huntingdon. At a later date it belonged to John de Inchmartine who became Sheriff of Perth. The first house on this site was probably built in 1643 (date on keystone now in East Pow Bridge) when land in the area started to be drained. By the mid 19th century Inchmartine was owned by James Vaughan Allen, whose wife wrote the very successful book 'The Henwife' and was adviser to Queen Victoria on hen keeping. After 1889 the house and grounds were divided, the house sold to James Adam Hunter, tea and rubber planter. The current owner bought Inchmartine House in 1980's and undertake a programme of improvements including extensive roof works.

The property Inchmartine House is an exceptional A Listed early Georgian country house dating from 1740. Originally forming the heart of a substantial estate of over 3000 acres, the house is approached via a long driveway from the A90 Dundee to Perth road. The house retains a wealth of original features including cornice work, original doors, panelling and beautifully proportioned rooms although it does require updating and modernising. The panelling in the morning room was brought from the Conservative Club in Perth, and the library (possibly former dressing room) fireplace is an imported example by Whytock & Reid.

The house enjoys a lovely setting set back from the A90 with views over the surrounding countryside. The driveway ends in a sweep to the front of the house which is a 3 storey 6 bay classically detailed building with attic floor and vaulted cellar.

From the front portico the front door leads to the entrance hall with staircase leading to the first floor and doors leading to the sitting room and morning room. A further door leads to rear hall with staircase to first floor and doors to the vaulted wine cellar and dining room and kitchen. A wonderful staircase leads up to the landing with doors off to the magnificent drawing room, library and principal bedroom. The staircase continues to the second floor with 4 bedrooms and playroom. The stairs lead up to the attic floor with a number of rooms and store rooms.

The Cottage Forming the south wing and adjoining the rear of the house is a cottage with sitting room/kitchen, 2 bedroom and bathroom. This has previously been let producing a useful income but is being sold with vacant possession.

The Business Wing To the rear of the house and forming the north east wing is a substantial range of rooms which for over 50 years has been run as a successful antiques business. Due to retirement this is in the process of being closed but it allows the new owner to undertake a variety of uses for this area of the house. It could form, subject to planning, a working office, business use or potentially additional accommodation.
