Ruthvenfield , Perth , PH1 3JP
Ruthven House is situated in Ruthvenfield village which although only about three miles from the centre of Perth, has its own very defined identity. The village is situated on one of the oldest mill lades in Scotland which enabled Ruthvenfield to become a centre for bleaching and dyeing textiles in the 18th century. Although most of the old mills in the area are now ruins, the mill lade still runs through the village and is an attractive focal point.
The property is approached via a private driveway which leads through stone gate piers, with an electric gate, to a gravel turning circle in front of the house. Traditional characteristics such as the original windows, shutters, stair and fireplaces have been well preserved and restored while the conservatory and the fitted kitchen make the house extremely comfortable and family friendly. The broad hallway and landing create an impressive sense of space in the house.
The panelled front door opens into a vestibule and then into the welcoming parquet floored reception hallway. To the right of the hallway is the drawing room. This is a large formal entertaining room with wonderful proportions and a magnificent Adam style fireplace. A large window with working shutters looks over the front of the house and there is a further window to the side of the fireplace. A study leads off. On the left of the hallway is the dining room which is a similarly proportioned room with impressive Adam style fireplace and a southerly aspect. The reception hall also gives access to an informal sitting room which has fitted shelving as well as a door to the conservatory. The conservatory has space for a dining table and overlooks the walled garden to the west of the house. At the rear of the house there is a dining kitchen, fitted on two sides with units that surround an American style fridge freezer, a two-oven gas fired black Aga and a ceramic sink. The kitchen has space for a family sized dining table. French windows open from the kitchen into the garden. Behind the kitchen is a useful utility room with a sink and plumbing for a washing machine and drier. There is also a useful boiler/drying room, cloakroom and a WC on the ground floor. A broad timber staircase with a pretty stained-glass window rises to the first floor where all but two of the rooms are accessible from the large landing. The principal bedroom overlooks the front garden and has an original fireplace as well as a large en suite shower room with double shower and two wash basins. There is also a fully shelved dressing room. Bedroom two also looks over the front of the house and has a fireplace. There are four further double bedrooms, a well-appointed family bathroom with a free-standing bath and a shower room. To the rear of the house, a staircase from the fifth bedroom leads down to the kitchen. Internal accommodation measures approximately 4000 sqft.
This exception property sits on approximately 0.85 acres of private garden and has some fabulous mature trees to the front. Much of the garden is down to lawn and there is a pretty border and colourful plants including magnolia, delphiniums, hollyhocks, clematis and climbing roses running the length of the walled section as well as some fruit cages and raised beds beside the old coach house. Ruthven House has a particularly useful range of outbuildings which include two double garages with electric doors, a former coach house which is now a useful garden store, a woodshed and a greenhouse. There is also a drying green beside the greenhouse and a terrace beside the conservatory.
