About this property

  • Southgait Close is a development of ten flats built by Headon Developments in 1999. The flats are built of ashlar reconstituted stone under a slate roof.

    10 Southgait Close comprises the upper floors of the south elevation and is arguably the premier flat in the building. It is bright and spacious extending to 2,223 ft2 over two floors. It was originally designed with five bedrooms but one bedroom was incorporated into the sitting room to create extra living space. It shares its entrance and lift with the ground floor and first floor flats in the same elevation.

    It has been well looked after and maintained. The cornices are from Stevensons of Norwich and the internal paintwork and decoration is Farrow & Ball. All the windows have been altered by Ventrolla to allow access from inside the flat. The TV aerial connections have been updated to ensure that Sky Q and Freeview are readily accessible in the south block.


    From the courtyard car park there is a paved pathway with flower beds along the west side of the building. The door to 8, 9 and 10 Southgait Close is the far door on the right hand side. There is a common hallway with stairs and a lift up to a landing on the second floor.

    The bright hallway has stairs to the upper floor and an under stairs cupboard. A corridor leads to a store room, a Villeroy & Boch bathroom and a utility area with a Miele washer / dryer.

    The sitting room / dining room is a superb space with double French doors with railings and a second window giving excellent natural light. It has a stone fireplace by Watsons with slate hearth.

    The kitchen / breakfast room has fitted cupboards by Premier Kitchens of Perth with granite worktops, a Gaggenau oven, gas hob and extractor, integrated fridge freezer, Miele dishwasher and sink. There are French doors with railings to the breakfast area. Amtico flooring.

    The principal bedroom has three windows, a built in wardrobe and a Villeroy & Boch en suite shower room.

    Upper Floor

    Stairs from the hall lead to an upper landing with the boiler cupboard off. There are three bedrooms and a shower room off. Bedroom 2 has a study or dressing room with a window.


    The courtyard has high walls either side and an electronically operated barrier which secures the parking. It is brick paved with all 10 apartments having their own dedicated parking spaces. There is additional space which can be used for guest parking.
