Rhynd House successfully combines privacy and convenience in terms of location. The stunning views and serenity of the surrounding countryside simply enhance the sense of tranquillity whilst the city of Perth and the M90 motorway are just over two miles away making it ideal for those requiring ready transport links for commuting. The views on offer from the property simply have to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. From the iconic landmark of Binn Hill Tower to the north and across the Carse of Cowrie and meandering River Tay to the east.
The property is accessed into an entrance vestibule with a further entry point via the small courtyard into a rear hallway linking the main home and the cottage/annex. The welcoming reception sets the tone for the rest of the accommodation with plenty of natural light, high ceilings, cornicing and impressive original woodwork on show which continue throughout many of the rooms.

The kitchen is fitted with a high-quality, bespoke range of base and wall units with integrated appliances, solid wood and granite work surfaces and AGA cooker. Accessed off the kitchen is a wonderful hard wood, double glazed conservatory providing space for dining and seating. The stunning vista on offer makes it a great place to relax and unwind.

There is also a quaint courtyard and a wealth of parking provided by a large gravelled area and detached double garage. Again, another notable feature is the superb and varying views on offer from different sides of the grounds.
