About this property

  • Drumlins was built in 2003 in a traditional style with rendered walls and dormer windows beneath a slate roof. Its character is timeless and it fits beautifully into its surroundings. The house is set in a sleepy hamlet which enjoys peace and privacy at the end of a country lane. Being elevated and south facing, the house has a lovely aspect and a light filled interior.

    A short private driveway leads to a parking area to the front of the house. The front door opens to a reception hall with the sitting room on one side and the kitchen on the other. The sitting room has a brick fireplace, exposed beams and a cosy atmosphere in the winter. The kitchen is a bright and welcoming room with a central island, fitted units and a broad opening linking it to the dining room / garden room. Possibly the loveliest room in the house, the garden/dining room has picture windows on three sides and doors to a sunny and sheltered terrace. Behind the kitchen is a large and practical utility room as well as a WC and access to the back garden. Lastly on the ground floor is a study which could serve as a fourth bedroom if needed.

    There are three double bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room while the two remaining bedrooms share a family bathroom. A door from the second bedroom opens into a versatile room which is currently used as dressing room and a gym but could be configured for a number of uses depending on a buyer's requirements. As with the ground floor rooms, the bedrooms and bathrooms are decorated in light neutral colours and are wonderfully light and airy.

    Garden
    The garden at Drumlins is a particular feature of the property. Great care has gone into its planting and landscaping and the result is a garden filled with colour and interest as well as privacy, pretty seating areas and uplifting views. At the front of the house a sunny terrace is ideal for eating outside in the summer while at the back of the house the garden rises up in terraces until it reaches fields of grazing sheep. From the top of the garden there are spectacular westerly views to the hills.

Local information

  • Drumlins has a beautiful rural setting just to the west of Aberfeldy. The surrounding countryside is a mixture of rolling fields interspersed with woodland and rugged, spectacular heather-clad hills rising up behind. Aberfeldy is the nearest main centre and has all essential services, including a medical practice. The town has a great selection of independent shops, cafés and restaurants, not to mention the Birks cinema which as well as screening mainstream films hosts a variety of community activities. Breadalbane Academy provides nursery to sixth year secondary education.
  • Drumlins could hardly be better placed for enjoying the outdoors. In addition to a nine hole golf course at Aberfeldy, there are courses at Kenmore, Dunkeld and Pitlochry. Water sports can be enjoyed on nearby lochs and rivers and there is a renowned canoeing course laid out at the Grandtully rapids as well as a purpose built water sports centre at Loch Tay. There are endless opportunities for hill climbing and walking nearby. Fishing is available on the rivers Lyon, Tummel and Tay, and shooting and stalking can all be taken locally. Some of Perthshire's most famous beauty spots are in the vicinity, namely: Glen Lyon, the conservation village of Fortingall, the Falls of Dochart at Killin, Kenmore on Loch Tay, The Queen's View at Loch Tummel and Schiehallion and Ben Lawers which are two spectacular Munros close by. Perth is only 35 miles away, while Edinburgh and Glasgow are both within about 80 miles. Pitlochry railway station (about 18 miles) has direct links to Inverness and London.
