Nether Kincairney is a stunning period home dating from the early 1700s, built originally of stone and slate, and updated by its owners in 1990, and an extension was added in 2007. Principal reception rooms lie on the ground floor – the sitting room has an open fireplace and the dining room enjoys views out to the gardens. The family room/study also has an open fireplace as well as duel aspect windows and the sunroom/porch benefits from southerly views.

The ground floor also has a guest bedroom suite, while three further double bedrooms are located on the first floor. The house also offers an extensive floored loft reached by a Ramsay ladder above the guest suite.

Outside is an L-shaped range of stone and slate outbuildings which were renovated in 1991 and comprise an office, workshop, tractor shed and garage. A former byre is now used as a garden room which is currently used to grow fruit. The gardens are enclosed by stone dykes, beech and rose hedging and include a sheltered, south-facing terrace. Two ponds and a variety of mature trees and shrubs pepper the gardens, while adjacent to the drive is a productive kitchen garden.

11.81 acres of the land lies to the south and west and is currently down to grass, which is let to a local farmer. The woodland extends to about 12.26 acres and consists of a mixture of decidous trees; at the northern end is a stream-fed lochan which has been stocked with trout in the past.

The two-bedroom cottage is surrounded by lawns and flower beds with a terrace to the front. Lot two is a rough ground area of half-an-acre which is used for storage and a wooded copse.

Nether Kincairney lies up a very private lane surrounded by Perthshire land owned by the Snaigow Estate. The house is just over three miles from Dunkeld which has great local amenities, and Perth is just 18 miles for further facilities.

The guide price is £850,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 0131 226 2500 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
