Yew Cottage, Main Street, Aberuthven, PH3 1HBProperty ID: 132650
Yew Cottage is everything the picturesque name suggests … yew trees behind the original stone wall at the front and once through the old wrought iron gate, a treat awaits…
A traditional 3 bedroom detached stone cottage (ca. 1800) with an Aga in the farmhouse kitchen, a stunning Esse Dragon wood burning stove in the sitting room, wide windowsills and a huge mature walled garden with private drive.
Evocative of a rural property, this charming home is in a thriving village with primary school, children’s nursery, dental practice, plumber, highly regarded pub & hotel serving evening meals, etc. and all this only 3 miles from the bustling town of Auchterarder (and Gleneagles) and 10 miles from the internationally renowned riverside university city of Perth. This is the ideal place to raise a family, which with the addition of the easy access to the A9/M9, is an ideal commuter base for Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and beyond.
The farmhouse kitchen is entered via the back door – the ideal location for a stable door – and is open plan through to the sitting room with patio doors to the rear and stairs to the first floor. In addition, a cloakroom is neatly tucked away. Wide stairs open to a pleasant first floor landing giving access to the three bedrooms and bathroom. All of which, unusually despite the age of the property, are very light.
Both gable ends have been repaired by a preservation company (guarantees available) and with a combination of double glazing and original windows, the authenticity of the house has been preserved.
Externally with attractive mature garden areas at the side and front, a paved path leads around to the rear. Here is a wonderful mature garden with a wide lawn and fruit trees, a delightful private paved terrace next to the house, a greenhouse, 2 brick outbuildings (needing renovation but with the potential for a studio, workshop, kiln, …), a semi circular parking area and some magnificent old trees – an outside space designed for adults and children alike.
