About this property

  • Cloichfoldich is a B Listed Georgian mansion house dating principally from the 1830s. With a pleasing symmetrical façade and a large welcoming front door framed by Doric columns, the house commands quite a presence. At the front of the house the drawing room, library and dining room all have impressive proportions, lovely cornice work and original timber paneled shutters framing tall windows. The drawing room has a large open fireplace with a marble surround as its focal point. The library is a cosier, more informal room with quirky circular windows either side of its fireplace which has a wood burning stove. Both these rooms are filled with southerly light. The dining room faces west and has views over the garden. It has a timber floor, shelved alcoves and an open fireplace with carved stone surround and can accommodate a large dining table. At the heart of the house is a broad reception hall which connects all these beautiful rooms A fabulous family friendly open plan dining kitchen is located at the rear of the house. It has painted timber cabinets, an island and an oil fired four-door AGA. There is space for a dining table between the kitchen and a relaxed sitting area which has window seats overlooking the rear courtyard. Smaller practical rooms on the ground floor include a study, two pantries, a larder, utility/boiler room, two WCs and access to a wine cellar.

    A wide stone stair with a wrought iron balustrade leads up to the first floor where there are five beautifully proportioned bedrooms, four of which have en suite facilities. On the second floor there are two double bedrooms (with lots of storage in the eaves) and a bathroom. Cloichfoldich would make a fantastic permanent or second home for buyers who love entertaining. Whilst it is well served by local amenities, is also a wonderfully peaceful highland retreat and ideal for escaping the pressures of city life.

    Cloichfoldich Flat
    A self-contained three-bedroom flat is located at the rear of Coichfoldich House on the first floor. It can be accessed via a raised pathway from the back garden, or from the courtyard. The flat is ideal for staff, guests or family needing independence and could also provide additional income as a short or long term rental property (subject to permissions).

    Cloichfoldich is approached by a private driveway which winds for about 600m gently up the hillside from the main Strathtay road. It leads to a large semi-circular parking area at the front of the house. From here there are breathtaking views across the Tay Valley and to the distant hills. The garden is a particular feature of the property; a highlight being the walled garden with its glorious herbaceous borders, vegetable beds, cut flower beds and trained fruit trees amongst many other carefully chosen plants. Rhododendrons, azaleas, wild garlic and primulas are amongst the huge variety of plants that produce joyful colour in spring. In May the woods are carpeted with bluebells.

    Cloichfoldich is set in 23 acres of gardens, grounds, parkland and paddocks. Grass parkland interspersed with mature trees falls away from the mown lawns of Cloichfoldich down to a large pond which attracts a variety of wildlife. Beyond the pond is a stretch of woodland. Paths through the parks and woodland make the grounds easily accessible and perfect for short walks from the house. To the north of the property there are two grass paddocks. The property would be ideal for buyers wishing to keep horses or hobby livestock.
