Superb family home and annexe, in a beautiful yet accessible countryside setting
Muirhead Steading is an attractive family home with extensive accommodation all set on the ground level. The appealing accommodation offers great flexibility, as well as a separate annexe. The house has a wonderful setting overlooking the neighbouring farmland, on all aspects, and stunning northerly views toward the hills of the Carse of Gowrie. The established gardens extend to about 2 acres in all, and run towards the banks of the River Tay.
Stone steps from the courtyard lead up to the front door of the house opening into the wonderfully bright family / dining room. This attractive room has windows overlooking the courtyard and a double height pitched ceiling with Velux windows overhead. Separate doors lead into the main hall and the sitting room. The spacious sitting room has windows overlooking the courtyard, and a door leading out to the side garden. It also has a log burning stove set into a feature stone surround with wooden mantel over. The kitchen / breakfast room sits across the hall from here. Again, this room has views over the gardens and countryside towards the hills of the Carse of Gowrie. There is a dedicated area for a dining table, and fitted appliances include a Smeg range cooker with electric ovens and gas hob. The adjacent utility room is plumbed for a washing machine, and has a door connecting to the main hall, and another leading outside.
Situated off the main hall is a study and two bedrooms with wonderful views over the gardens and surrounding farmland. One of these has an en suite bathroom with both bath and shower cubicle as well as a separate sauna. There is also a shower room, and generous store cupboard off the hall. A corridor leads off the main hall to two further double bedrooms and another shower room.
From the courtyard, a door leads into the self-contained annexe apartment. This can also be accessed via bedroom 4 of the main house meaning that it can be incorporated as principal accommodation if preferred. The annexe has its own kitchen with fitted units and appliances. There is a spacious sitting room, which the owners currently use as an additional bedroom. There is also a double bedroom, bathroom and sun porch which leads out into the garden.
The beautiful and mature gardens at Muirhead Steading extend to about 2 acres in all. The principal garden sits to the north of the house and is mostly laid to lawn and surrounded by a mix of broadleaf and evergreen trees. At the foot of the garden is an area of woodland from where there are spectacular views over the River Tay. There is a raised timber decked area situated closer to the house which offers views over the surrounding fields and is a lovely setting for outdoor dining and the entertaining of guests. Wooden gates from the drive open into the monobloc courtyard where there is a double garage.
Mains water, electricity and gas. Drainage to private septic tank. Central heating is via mains gas fired boiler.
