Thorntree House, Muckhart Road, Dunning PH2 0RLProperty ID: 177392
Located in the heart of a highly desirable conservation village, this is a fascinating 3 bedroom period family home with walled garden complete with original wash house and disused well.
Facing the historic Thorntree Square, this elegant home with its grand façade and boasting numerous, magnificent original features (ornate ceiling cornicing, brass art nouveau door finger plates, original cast iron fireplaces and sash windows with working shutters), has an open outlook and is undoubtedly one of the most desirable properties in the medieval part of the village.
At the rear, the building’s stonework emanates a warmth lending a continental aura to the sun terraces and garden. Here a large, very attractive low maintenance communal area complete with disused well provides 2 sun terraces on different levels and a row of stone wash houses, 2 of which belong to the property and feature a wonderful ancient wash trough and brick wash copper. These open onto the main garden with large lawn, mature shrubs and plum tree, which having been divided between the two maisonettes , could provide a good size private garden by erecting a fence or screening.
The approx. 2 centuries old stone property was divided into 2 dwellings around 100 years ago and benefits from both front and rear access and accommodation on 2 levels.
The central portal embellished with a curlicued wrought iron house name, enters into the vestibule with magnificent etched glass interior door and gracious welcoming hall featuring a beautiful wrought iron staircase, period fitted cupboard and glowing wood floor.
Reminiscent of a baronial hunting lodge, the substantial wood lined (but surprisingly light thanks to its 2 large windows) sitting room features the original wood floor, picture rail and an absolutely stunning original fireplace with decorative cast iron fire and tiled hearth.
The large fitted farmhouse style kitchen looking out to the garden, with integrated dishwasher and 5 ring gas range cooker, opens through an arch into the elegant dining room. A light room with another beautiful fireplace, this time with an unusual ornate copper front.
A double bedroom with deep wood panelled entrance and fitted wardrobe looks out to the square and completing the ground floor, a large wood panelled bathroom with coloured bath suite and separate shower cubicle is at the rear.
Illuminated by the large window in the half landing, the elegant staircase leads to the small first floor landing. The imposing master bedroom looks out to the square from 2 bay windows and features another lovely original fireplace and wall length fitted wardrobe which cunningly disguises the entrance to the en-suite bathroom. Very useful shelving at the side opens into a large, beautifully bright bathroom with white sanitary ware and shower over the bath and, to heighten the sense of luxury, yet another beautiful fireplace. A third double bedroom looking out to the garden features a bay window and fitted wardrobe.
Within very easy reach of Perth (10.6 miles), Auchterarder (5 miles) and the A9 (2 miles), Dunning benefits from its tranquil rural location, yet at the same time is not far from anywhere. A highly sought after village with primary school, well stocked village shop and highly regarded pub/restaurant, Dunning with its high quality environment suits all ages.

“To all at Jameson + Mackay who helped us as a family with all that was involved with our father’s estate including the sale of his house we want to say many thanks for your help, professionalism and compassion. It was much appreciated and will be remembered. ” The W family, Oct 2021
Alison, I am writing to thank you and your team for completing all matters in connection with my late father’s estate. I am so pleased that my parents had the foresight to introduce us so many years ago. Please pass on my particular thanks to Pauline for the excellent way in which she handled matters. She has always been cheerful and very professional in all dealings I’ve had with her. She has always been easy to talk to and has helped make the process as easy as possible for myself which is much appreciated. Thank you once again for the excellent way that you have dealt with my late father’s estate. ” Mr K , July 2021

I should have sent an email earlier to thank you for all your work to make sure the settlement went through for the house (at both ends!) – we never met you in person but we both thought you were super efficient and we’re very grateful for your painstaking work on making sure that everything went through – as well as answering our emails quickly and reassuring us that all was well. It really is a great service that you provide.
Thank you very much for the summary and the prompt conclusion of the conveyancing. It’s been the most straightforward property transaction I’ve ever experienced, THANK YOU!
I am very pleased with the service you provided, always kind caring and professional. Many thanks again for everything, if I need to get in touch in the future I’ll let you know.
