A well-positioned roof terrace apartment overlooking the River Tay and within walking distance of Perth city centre.
Knowehead House is a notable B listed mansion house dating from the mid 19th century. With its crow stepped gables and elaborate crenelated entrance, it is an architecturally beautiful building. In 2017, Crieff-based Corryard Developments converted the house into five stunning apartments in which beautifully preserved original features characterise the contemporary interiors. The Roof Terrace Apartment is one of two apartments on the first floor.
A broad oak staircase rises from a smart communal entrance hall to the first floor landing where the door to the Roof Terrace Apartment is first on the left.
An entrance hall with neat walk in storage gives access to all rooms. With solid oak doors, brushed copper door handles and a lacquered oak floor from Strathearn Stone and Timber, it is immediately apparent that the apartment has been finished to an exceptionally high standard. A stunning open plan living room has a kitchen at one end and a seating area with wood burning stove at the other. In the centre of the room there is space for a dining table beside a large window which has stunning views over the river. With a cathedral-style vaulted ceiling and large astragal windows the room is bright and lofty. A sleek white Bulthaup kitchen has Corian work surfaces and Siemens appliances and the wood burning stove is a warming focal point. To the left of the stove a glass door leads onto the roof terrace. Floored in timber and enclosed by a glass balustrade, the terrace is a wonderful place to sit out in warm weather and enjoy the panoramic outlook.
The apartment has two double bedrooms; one with built in storage and a dual aspect, the other with its own door to the terrace. A luxurious modern shower room complete with Dormbracht fittings, porcelain tiling and a contemporary double washbasin serves both rooms. Underfloor heating runs throughout the apartment and there is loft space with additional storage.
In addition to the roof terrace, there is a communal area of the gardens which has been set aside for residents of each apartment to erect a garden shed/store.
The property comes with two allocated parking spaces.
Entry to the development is via automatic gates and there is a video entry system to each apartment.
