*CLOSING DATE Friday 13th August 12 Noon* An idyllic riverside home with lodge
Otterstones and Lodge by the Tay were built in 1989. They have a lovely elevated position directly overlooking one of Scotland's most famous rivers.
Otterstones is both characterful and comfortable. Its most impressive room spans the width of the house and consists of a circular drawing room with log burning stove, a music room and a dining room which are divided simply by differing floor levels. It is an enormously versatile space for family life as well as for entertaining on a large or small scale. A conservatory which the current owners built on to the south side of Otterstones opens to a raised deck which is a magical place to sit out and watch the river flow past. The dining kitchen with its red four oven AGA and timber units has a welcoming farmhouse feel. French windows from the kitchen open to a large paved terrace. The cosy library/study has a bay window overlooking the river and an oil fired wood burning stove, while a raised landing beside the staircase serves well as an office. There is also a WC and utility room on the ground floor.
Upstairs the principal bedroom suite has large picture windows, a bathroom, dressing room and a balcony overlooking the river. There are three further bedrooms, all with en suite shower rooms and river views.
Lodge by the Tay
Originally built as garaging and workshop space, Lodge by the Tay has been converted into a charming three bedroom lodge. With its open plan living room/ kitchen and balcony positioned on the first floor, it is hugely popular with guests who enjoy its view of the river. The Lodge has a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and two further bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor. A barbeque area and private garden has been created outside The Lodge where there is also a hot tub. Further details on the income currently generated from holiday lets is available from the selling agent
Two single garage / workshops and a store room.
Otterstones and Lodge by the Tay are set in about 2.9 acres of garden and woodland. An expanse of neat lawn is edged by a 200 metre clipped beech hedge on the riverside boundary of the garden and herbaceous borders provide colour around the house in the summer. A variety of garden seating areas include a deck accessed by a pretty wooden bridge. A small gate leads through the beech hedge to the river and there are lovely walks in the arboretum behind the house which includes giant redwoods and Turkish oaks. Beavers, otters, ospreys, red squirrels and deer can all be seen from the house.
