HD Property Video Available. Gorsehill is an outstanding, seven apartment traditional detached villa set within beautiful walled garden grounds with superb views over the spires of Blairgowrie to the Sidlaw Hills.
The property enjoys an elevated position in a peaceful, exclusive and friendly neighbourhood in the popular town of Blairgowrie. While it is within easy walking distance of the town centre, the house is also only a few minutes walk from beautiful open countryside.
A white painted porch added in the early 20th century has original stained glass windows. Internally the house has retained many period features including; timber panelled doors, stripped wooden floors, sash and case windows, tiled fireplaces, mosaic floor tiles, detailed cornice work, and the decorative central staircase. Floor to ceiling windows fill the main reception rooms with light. A bespoke dining kitchen and cosy sitting room are decorated in a more contemporary but sympathetic style which will appeal to buyers with both modern and traditional tastes.
Gorsehill is situated in a large and beautifully presented mature garden. Being completely enclosed it provides a wonderfully peaceful and private place to sit in the summer. Beds of flowering plants and shrubs surround a neat front lawn which opens to a large section of terraced garden to the east of the house. Productive fruit trees include pear, apple and plum. The garden has been immaculately maintained. The current owners have added impressive sun room and detached garage with power and electric door.
