A striking contemporary home in a beautiful location.
Sealladh Na Beinn was constructed in 2008 using materials and a design that take inspiration from traditional buildings in the area. The house has peaked dormer windows, a slate roof and is clad in stone and Russian larch ensuring it blends well into its rural backdrop. The house is situated on land that once belonged to Garth House and is one of a handful of properties that form a small and friendly community at Garth.
The house can be entered either by the back door which leads into the utility / boot room, or through sliding glass doors directly into the welcoming open plan kitchen and dining room. The Moben kitchen is made from dark cherry wood and has a glossy black granite worktop which also forms a breakfast bar. The kitchen has a range of integrated appliances including a Rangemaster cooker, an American Style fridge freezer and a double electric oven. Behind the kitchen is the utility room which has also been fitted with units and a sink, and has lots of space for boots and coats too. The dining area is open to the kitchen and is a lovely bright area being surrounded on two sides by full height glazed screens which are also sliding doors. There is also space for some comfortable seating and a television. A large opening connects to the large open plan sitting room. With a woodburning stove in the centre of the room, French windows at one end and a cosier seating area with television at the other end, this is a versatile room that also works well for entertaining. Behind the sitting room is a study overlooking the landscaped garden. Finally on the ground floor there is a large guest bedroom. Spanning the width of the house and with a door to the rear garden, there is also potential to convert this into two rooms depending on a buyer's requirements. The guest room has access to a Jack and Jill shower room.
A timber staircase with glass balustrade leads to the generously sized first floor landing which is large enough for comfortable seating and is a lovely bright and quiet space giving access to three double bedrooms. The master bedroom suite has a dressing room and shower room as well as built in wardrobes and vanity unit by Neville Johnson. Bespoke plantation shutters are fitted to the large angular windows in the master bedroom to stylish effect. Across the landing there are two further double bedrooms, one of which is also fitted with plantation shutters and is currently used as an office. There is also a family bathroom with shower over the bath which along with the master shower room is fitted with underfloor heating.
The garden at Sealladh Na Beinn is a particular feature of the property and has been beautifully landscaped with neat lawn to the front and an herbaceous border to the rear which is retained by a beautiful stone wall. A young and productive small area of fruit trees in the northeast corner of the garden is filled with blossom in the spring. At the front of the house and framed by a timber pergola is a paved terrace. The garden has external sensor lighting and a water supply.
A detached larch clad single garage has light, power and a remote control door. The garage also has a floored loft which has potential to be a studio or an office depending on a buyer's requirements. There is a lean-to log store on the side of the garage.
Mains water and electricity. Private drainage. Oil fired underfloor central heating on the ground floor with radiator heating on the first floor. In addition the first floor shower and bathroom benefit from electric underfloor heating.

The sympathetic and stylish design of this house echoes its beautiful setting, while the flexible and spacious interior makes Sealladh Na Beinn an excellent candidate for a permanent family home or a second/holiday house from which to enjoy some of Perthshire's loveliest scenery and endless outdoor activities all pretty much on the doorstep.Stephanie Clarke
