A well located home with lovely views over Perth and the countryside
Greenknowe is a traditional, detached stone built cottage. Dating from approximately 1870, it is believed to have started out as a gamekeeper's cottage and has been extended over the years. Located at the end of a no through road and surrounded by woodland on three sides, the property is wonderfully private and a haven for wildlife. While the centre of town is only a mile away, there are acres of open countryside to enjoy on foot directly from the garden. The front porch opens to a hallway with a dining room and sitting room on either side. Both have south facing windows and fireplaces. The kitchen has windows overlooking the entrance driveway and space for a small dining table. Also on the ground floor is a fourth bedroom which is served by a shower room but which would also be ideal as a home office with its own lobby and entrance porch.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a bathroom. The two main bedrooms both have south facing windows and pretty fireplaces as well as useful eaves storage.
The garden at Greenknowe is a particular feature of the property. Extending to almost an acre it is mainly enclosed by a neat hedge and planted with specimen trees. There is plenty of space to park cars at the rear of the house where there is also a double garage. The garden has privacy, incredible views and lots of birdlife.
