Part of a pretty farm conversion in highland Perthshire, Croftgarrow Steading was converted from an ancient stone building to a beautiful contemporary home in 2008. It is a very large two-bedroom property, all on one level and stands in expansive grounds with uninterrupted views to the surrounding valleys and hills.
Croftgarrow Steading consists of one double and one twin bedroom, each with a luxurious bathroom. The rest of the property is then taken up with the main living space, a vast open-plan area containing the farmhouse kitchen, dining space and plenty of seating areas. A large central wood burning stove forms the centrepiece to this space and double glass doors to the east and south lead to the private garden and to a lovely verandah.
The House has a traditional feel, with stone and oak floors, warm fabrics and lovely natural finishes. At the same time, the specification is completely contemporary, with Bose multi-room sound, matki and duravit bathrooms, underfloor heating and a large, very-well equipped kitchen.
Croftgarrow sits in the middle of some of the most spectacular natural scenery of central Scotland. Sited opposite a bend in the river Lyon that forms a beautiful natural salmon pool, the rear of the house has views up to the beautiful Glen Lyon and Croftgarrow Wood, whilst the verandah and garden look out to Drummond Hill and Tay Forest Park. Nearby are the soaring peaks of Ben Lawers and Schiehallion and the dramatic expanse of Loch Tay. The historic village of Fortingall, home to the oldest tree in Europe is a short walk away.
Croftgarrow Steading is our second home and has its own website. Check out www.croftgarrowsteading.co.uk for more information and photographs.
