About this property

  • Lincroft is arguably the finest house in the Rosemount area of Blairgowrie. It is situated on the fairway of the Lansdowne Championship Course, close to the Lincroft hole. The house was built in 1938 and designed by Thoms and Wilkie, a prestigious firm of Dundee architects. The house is B Listed as it is such a fine example of the Arts and Crafts style. There are however also some distinctive Art Deco elements such as the sweeping bowed balconies and bay windows. Large reception rooms with beautiful woodwork and generous curved windows characterise the interior which is perfectly designed for entertaining.

    The entrance to Lincroft is via a vestibule which leads into an oak panelled hall. The sitting room and dining room both have symmetrical bowed bay windows and between them the library has double doors opening to the curved verandah. All three rooms have fireplaces and lovely views over the garden. At the west end of the house an extension built in 2007 echoes the original style of the house and comprises a master bedroom suite with dressing room and two en suite shower rooms. The master suite has direct access to the study. At the east end of the house is a kitchen which is open to a dining area in the sun room. Double doors from the sun room open onto the terrace. Between the kitchen and the integrated garage is a suite of utility rooms including a larder, boiler room and WC. There is a guest WC and cloakroom close to the front door.

    A timber staircase rises to the first floor where two double bedrooms have large bow windows and access directly to a first floor balcony. One of these has an en suite bathroom and the other has a shower room directly opposite. One further double bedroom also has access to the balcony. There is also a family bathroom. In addition to a smart front staircase, there is a back stair which leads to the first floor and also to the second floor which has the potential to become self contained accommodation with four bedrooms, a bathroom and a small kitchen. There is also a lift which services all floors.

    Outside
    Lincroft is set in just under 2 acres of mature garden which is well set back from the road and provides the house with a high degree of privacy. There is an in and out tarmac driveway with generous parking space. Mature trees edge the grounds and screen the house from the road and the golf course. An expanse of lawn is laid out to the front of the house and a terrace with herbaceous beds is a lovely place to sit out in good weather.
