About this property

  • Ardnagag was constructed in the 1930s of brick with a Rosemary clay tiled roof. Originally a relatively modest home, Ardnagag was sympathetically extended in 2016 and now has a wonderful mix of spacious, cosy, traditional and contemporary characteristics.

    The front entrance to Ardnagag opens into a welcoming reception area which in turn is open to the garden room. Currently used as a sitting room, a wall of glazing frames the most glorious view of Dunkeld and has double doors into the garden. The house has two further reception rooms; both are on the south side of the house making the best of the views and the southerly aspect. The sitting room has a more traditional feel with a fireplace and a large square bay window (which was added in 2006) as well as lots of space for a dining table. All three open fires on the ground floor are regularly maintained and in good working order. The library is one of the prettiest rooms in the house. The original oak panelled walls and decorative fireplace give it a completely different feel to the rest of the house and it also has a door to the garden. The contemporary kitchen has been beautifully fitted with modern cabinets, granite worktops and a central island; it overlooks the entrance driveway. There are two lovely double bedrooms on the ground floor of Ardnagag which share a contemporary shower room. There is also a utility room and WC on the ground floor.

    The principal bedroom is on the first floor and is a delightful large, bright room with its own spacious en suite bathroom and also a dressing room. Beyond the dressing room a passageway leads to a shower room and then to the studio. This light, lofty and versatile room would also make a wonderful office or bedroom depending on a buyer's requirements. It has stairs leading down to the garden room.

    The garden is one of the best features of Ardnagag. It has been beautifully landscaped and maintained by the current owners and is filled with carefully chosen plants that provide colour throughout the spring and summer. The terrace at the front of the house, the deck at the foot of the garden and the summer house are all lovely places to sit out and admire the view. Outdoor industrial electric cabling runs to the deck, the fountain and to the summer house. There is plenty of parking at the entrance to Ardnagag as well as a useful garage, workshop and stores.
