About this property

  • Howwood is approached by a short gated driveway which leads to a parking and turning area in front of the house. A porch leads directly into the kitchen which has a picture window overlooking the surrounding fields. The kitchen is fitted with wall and base units and there is space for a small dining table. From the kitchen there is access to the hall and to the dining room which also looks out over the front of the house. The dining room is partially separated from the sitting room by a fireplace but there is a welcoming open plan feel to both these reception areas. The fireplace and built in shelving beside it give a lovely cosy feel to one end of the room while at the other end glazed sliding doors lead out to the garden and the river. This part of the house is perfect for enjoying the fabulous setting in the summer.

    An L-shaped hall gives access to all the bedrooms and to a conservatory which enjoys fabulous views of the garden at the southern end of the house. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room, and three further double bedrooms all have built in wardrobes and share a family bathroom. Two further rooms both with built in storage are currently used as a study and an office but could be additional bedrooms if required.

    The garden at Howwood is a particular feature of the property. At the entrance to the house colourful borders edge the driveway and neat lawn runs around to the river side of the house. A neat beech hedge and pretty stone dykes create attractive borders to the grounds which extend to the solum of the River Devon which winds its way past the house and is a wonderful backdrop to the property. Wilder areas of grass and woodland along the riverbanks ensure plenty of wildlife in and around the garden.

    Double garage with light, power and storage.

Howwood sits in the most charming of settings and has a lovely bright and open feel, plus the potential to upgrade. The location makes Perth, Glasgow and Edinburgh easily commutable, and the house is excellently positioned for schools, especially nearby Dollar Academy, but it also has the superb countryside of Perthshire itself on the doorstep

  • Howwood has a magical situation on the banks of the River Devon and is surrounded by open fields. It is conveniently located about midway between Dollar and Kinross just off the Naemoor Road which is a pretty lane linking the village of Rumbling Bridge to Crook of Devon. Crook of Devon (one mile) has a village shop and post office while Kinross (seven miles) has a supermarket, primary and secondary schooling and professional services. The village of Dollar with its well respected Academy is only five miles northwest and so the location is ideal for buyers who need to be close to good schools and within commuting distance of Perth, Edinburgh or Glasgow.
  • Howwood is also well placed for accessing some of Scotland's most beautiful countryside with the hills and glens of Perthshire to the north, the Trossachs to the west, and St Andrews and the pretty fishing villages of Fife to the east. Gleneagles Hotel with its superb leisure and restaurant facilities, not to mention its famous golf courses is only about 12 miles away.
