A carefully designed eco-friendly family home

An exceptional, architect-designed, eco-friendly family home in an outstanding location is now on the property market.

The Old Court, close to Alyth was built in 2013, and is presented for sale by Bell Ingram.

The five-bedroom property provides a high specification of fixtures and fittings, and sits well in the surrounding countryside with panoramic southerly views and numerous outbuildings.

Internally, the use of natural materials like oak, slate and limestone creates a warm and welcoming feel.

Particular attention has been paid to the eco-credentials of The Old Court which boasts roof mounted solar thermal panels, energy efficient Nordan doors and windows, and full underfloor heating with digital thermostatic controls for every room. This all adds up to an impressive EPC B rating.

Internally, The Old Court offers a high specification of fixtures and fittings which can only be fully appreciated when viewing the property. There are four double bedrooms (master en suite), marble tiled family bathroom, an open plan kitchen/dining/living area with wood burning stove and a downstairs playroom/fifth bedroom with another wood burning stove.

The accommodation is completed by a utility room, downstairs WC and walk-in larder.

Externally, the property is situated in a large garden, primarily laid to lawn and surrounded by a privet hedge with individual shrubs and fruit trees. The main lawn area is fully enclosed while a timber gate can be closed to keep in pets and children.

The traditional sandstone garage has three main openings while the front is also open. The garage has a concrete floor and would make an ideal store for several vehicles.

Behind the main garage are three stables while a standalone sandstone bothy lies to the north of the main property. These outbuildings would be ideal for conversion into additional living accommodation, subject to the appropriate consents being sought.
