Easter Auchtar is a spacious family property built from original farm steading buildings which now provides a stone-and-timber-built house beneath a pitch slate roof.

The dining kitchen is very large, with ample space for a table and doors out to the terrace, while the sitting room has a useful wood-burning stove. The study is accessed from here, and could also easily be used as a snug, library or playroom.

There are seven bedrooms, five with en-suite shower rooms. The master suite includes a dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The east end, previously a separate annexe, is great for visting guests or conversion to a separate flat. The house has been a B&B in the past.

Outside the large garden mainly lies to the west of the house and has mature trees and herbaceous borders. A small burn runs down the eastern boundary.

Easter Auchtar is situated close to the foot of Glen Lyon, 12 miles west of Aberfeldy and around one mile from Loch Tay. Aberfeldy is a popular Scottish Victorian town with very good local services.

The guide price is £520,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 0131 226 2500, or visit www.struttandparker.com.
