Old meets new in Perthshire

Woodlands Cottage sits in Donavourd, a short distance south of Pitlochry.

The detached three-bedroom house has been extended and modernised, blending the best of old and new.

The most striking part of the extension is a double height living area with swathes of glass and skylight windows making an impressive entertaining space.

The shaker-style country kitchen has an Aga and the sitting room has a gas effect stove and feature stone surround.

One of the three bedrooms is on the ground floor and has a triple bank of skylight windows along with french doors out to the garden.

Two bedrooms are upstairs and both the master and one of the guest bedrooms have en suites.

With permission for a utility room and car port in place there’s scope to increase the property’s size even more.

The landscaped gardens have a driveway and parking, raised patio area, lawn and a burn.

There are two ways to access the house – a private driveway leads up from the main road and there’s also a track that’s shared by neighbours.

If you want to live in Woodlands Cottage you’d better move quickly, however – there’s been plenty of interest and a closing date has been set for Wednesday October 25.

Woodlands House, Donavourd, Pitlochry, is on sale with Galbraith for offers over £330,000.
