AN EXTENDED FORMER FARMHOUSE IS IN A REMOTE BUT BEAUTIFUL LOCATION AND BOASTS AN ANNEXE AND SEPARATE STEADING WITH OUTSTANDING COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS
Believed to be a former tenanted farm on the Ledlanet Estate, this traditional farmhouse and adjoining steading dates from the 1800s, along with the nearby settlement at Path of Condie.

The original farmhouse has been substantially extended by the current owners, incorporating the adjoining stone steading, to create a lovely family home offering a mixture of contemporary and traditional accommodation. Care has been taken to retain many of the original features such as the beautiful exterior stonework and internal floor levels which have been incorporated into the design.

The exceptionally generous reception space has been thoughtfully laid out to take advantage of the stunning views over the garden and beyond to the Perthshire countryside.
