About this property

  • Four Farthings is a beautiful modern house which was built in 2009 and designed to make the very best of its panoramic view over Strathearn. The slate roof, dormer windows and overhanging eaves give the house plenty of traditional charm, however the interior is wonderfully bright and contemporary. The house is approached by a private driveway which sweeps around its front arriving at a gravelled courtyard beside the front door.

    The broad vestibule opens to a welcoming reception hall from where there is access to the main living rooms. The sitting room and dining kitchen are all located at the front of the house. These rooms both have sliding Nordan doors opening to decking outside and are well lit by floor to ceiling windows that frame the incredible view. The sitting room, with its Morso stove and Caledonian Oak floors is a warm and peaceful room while the dining kitchen, with large central island and space for a dining table as well as comfortable seating is very much the hub of the house. The kitchen is well equipped with an induction hob and integrated Siemens appliances which include an oven, warming drawer, microwave and steam oven. Behind the kitchen is a utility room with back door and also a shower room.

    Steps from the hall lead up to a large secondary sitting room. This room has a stove and timber floors as well as sliding Nordan doors that open to an expansive and sheltered area of decking to the rear of the house. A double bedroom on this level could also be used as a study depending on buyers' requirements.

    The second floor of Four Farthings is on a split level. The first landing gives access to bedroom two with its en suite shower room and dressing area as well as two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. All these bedrooms have built in wardrobes and lovely southerly views. The principal bedroom suite is situated on a separate landing. With French windows on to a private balcony, an en suite shower room and a dressing area with a multitude of built in cupboards, it is both spacious and luxurious.

    Garage and apartment
    The double garage and its apartment are within an attractive painted timber clad building positioned at right angles to the main house. The garage provides ample space for two cars as well as storage or a workshop. Above is a comfortable and characterful one bedroom apartment with open plan living room/kitchen, wood burner, a double bedroom and shower room.

    Outside
    The garden at Four Farthings stretches out in front and behind the house. At the front the garden has been landscaped neatly around the driveway and an expanse of decking running along the front of the house provides a lovely place to sit out and enjoy the view in good weather. The overhanging roof creates a covered area for outside seating. Behind the house is a second more sheltered decked area to catch the afternoon and evening sun. The grass lawn stretches up behind the house and backs on to open fields. There is lots of scope to plant an orchard, build a summer house, create a vegetable garden or keep hens at the top of the garden. Herbaceous borders provide colour closer to the house.
