A stunning house with its own LOCH and 65 acres of countryside has gone on the market – for the same price as a flat near London.
Idyllic Loch Cottage, in Kirkmichael, Perth and Kinross, is on sale for £250,000 – less than a one-bedroom flat for sale in New Malden, Surrey.
The two-storey cottage has beautiful uninterrupted views of the nearby luscious woodlands which span across almost 50 acres.
It has historically been used as a holiday let but in recent years the house fell into disrepair and estate agents, Galbraith, said it requires substantial renovation.
The popular Cateran Trail, used for walking and mountain biking, passes within metres of the cottage, and the ski slopes of Glenshee are just a 30 minute drive away.
The River Ardle lies within the property’s acreage and potential buyers would have their own fishing rights for brown trout and salmon.
The ground floor has two front rooms, a kitchen and a larder, and on the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom .
A traditional stone byre is also attached to the cottage.
The land is divided into sections – 18 acres are currently used as paddocks, established coniferous woods cover 24 acres and there is also 23 acres of broadleaf woodland and rough grazings.
The village of Kirkmichael is a 15 minute walk away, which has a shop, hotels and a highly regarded primary school.
