The Control Tower
HD Video Tour available. Arguably one of the rarest and most unique homes to come to the Scottish market, The Control Tower is a contemporary 4 bedroom 3 reception room home boasting exceptionally spacious accommodation spread over four floors (4380sqft / 407sqm including stairwell) with sprawling garden grounds extending to around 1.2 acres and a yet to be constructed detached double or triple garage. Set amidst some of the most picturesque scenery in Perthshire, the property forms the centre piece of an exclusive development of luxury homes built by Stephen Country Homes. Clathymore is an exclusive and exceptionally peaceful development just 10 miles from the city of Perth. The location perfectly combines the benefits of tranquil, rural living with the convenience of ready access to travel links and sense of community within the secluded development. A former disused World War II airfield control tower, the property has been skillfully designed by renowned local architect James Denholm and has been completed to a level allowing potential purchasers the opportunity to work with the builders and discuss the interior specification and design to satisfy individual requirements, thus creating a truly unique and bespoke home tailored to the needs of the eventual owner. The cleverly positioned windows capture dramatic views of the surrounding countryside and the unique 'top deck' boasts magnificent panoramic views over the Perthshire hills including stunning sunsets towards Ben Vorlich and Stuc a' Chroin, two famous Scottish Munros, in the west. A sight which can only be fully appreciated by viewing. The accommodation is spread over four floors served by stairs and a lift, culminating in a dramatic sun room. The spectacular roof terrace features glass balustrading as does the second floor balcony. A feature 'glass box' has been incorporated into the drawing room and master en-suite which presents stunning views over the Perthshire hills. The configuration of the house is designed to maximise the stunning views, placing the everyday living space, including the kitchen, on the second floor, the master bedroom suite and drawing room on the first floor, and two secondary bedrooms, both en suite, a study/bedroom 4, bathroom and laundry on the ground floor. The second floor will be one large open plan living area, apart from a walk in larder off the kitchen area and a discreetly located WC. This area will give a panoramic 360 degree view out over Perthshire. Double doors will open to the balcony. On the first floor, the L shaped master bedroom suite will occupy about two thirds of the floor area, with a vast bathroom and a fitted dressing area. Both the bedroom and the drawing room extend into the ‘glass box’. Cat 6 cabling will be provided to accommodate the latest in smart home technology and entertainment facilities. An intruder & fire alarm will be provided in this stunning home as will fibre to the premises enabling ultra-fast broadband speeds. The internal specifications will be to a particularly high standard including Mexicana Oak internal doors, down lighting throughout, and chrome door furniture. Within an agreed budget, the kitchen design will be by Callum Walker, and the appliances will be Siemens and Miele. Clathymore is set amidst beautiful scenery between the Vale of Strathearn and the Glenalmond hills. The nearest village is Madderty, with its own primary school. Clathy village hall and church is less than 1 mile from the development. The local towns of Crieff and Auchterarder and the nearby city of Perth provide a good range of shops and services.
