5 Bedroom house

Dunkeld, Perthshire, PH8

Offers over £575,000

  • Type House
  • Style/Floor Detached

A truly unique, 49 acre package which includes a spectacularly positioned farmhouse with Full Planning Permission to be transformed into a contemporary New Build home. Boasting unrivalled south-westerly views and sitting in a private, yet highly accessible location on the southern fringe of the Scottish Highlands. DESCRIPTION Craig of Stenton sits within its own ring fence of about 49 acres and forms the western part of the Stenton Estate. Vehicular access to Craig of Stenton has traditionally been taken via a track from the north, however the current owners have invested in re-establishing an historic road to the south which has transformed the property's accessibility. The existing Farmhouse sits in an elevated position, looking out over the Tay Valley and Birnam Hill beyond, offering some of the finest views rural Perthshire has to offer. The existing house is built from traditional stone with a slate roof and whilst it is very much still habitable, it is in need of comprehensive renovation and would certainly benefit from a contemporary building project that would maximise the panoramic vistas that are on offer. The current internal accommodation includes two Reception Rooms, Kitchen and Bathroom with three coombed Bedrooms on the first floor. To the rear are two Stores housing a Utility Room and Coal Store. There are further stone outbuildings that are in varying states of disrepair offering a fantastic footprint on which to enlarge the residential accommodation. PLANNING PERMISSION Craig of Stenton benefits from full planning consent (Planning Reference: 19/00995/FLL) for the erection of a replacement dwelling house and garage, alterations and extension to vehicular access and associated works as designed by McLaren Murdoch & Hamilton Ltd Chartered Architects based in Perth (Contact: Alastair Mitchell - 01738 627 061). Full planning permission was granted in July 2019 to construct a 9,800ft2 (910m2) country house of traditional, yet contemporary design which cleverly incorporates the original footprint of the Craig of Stenton Farmhouse and traditional farm buildings. The accommodation, as proposed, makes the most of the site's elevated position along with the westerly and southerly aspects which give far reaching views over the middle Tay Valley by incorporating floor to ceiling windows in the principal reception rooms and bedrooms. The internal accommodation comprises a large live-in Kitchen with Dining Area, formal Drawing Room, Dining Room, Boot Room, Utility and Office Area with two en-suite Bedrooms on the ground floor. On the first floor there is a Master Bedroom Suite which includes a private Sitting Room, Dressing Room and en-suite Bathroom. There are two en-suite Bedrooms with a Cinema Room and Spa Treatment Room completing the upstairs accommodation. There is also permission for a separate 527ft2 (49m2) double garage. FARMLAND Craig of Stenton is surrounded by about 49.83 acres of permanent pasture (28.66 acres) and mixed deciduous woodland (20.26 acres). The grazing land rises from 100m to 140m above mean sea level, is south-west facing and is currently farmed under an Annual Grazing Licence in favour of the local farmer. Stenton is IACS Registered and the Farm Code No. is 665/0039.
