Set against the backdrop of the Ochil Hills and located on the edge of the village of Auchterarder, Shinafoot House sits proudly on around 1.5 acres providing a feeling of privacy and space.
Currently the property works well as a family home and business with a large studio attached to the main house. The studio could easily be converted to provide a self contained apartment or annexe.
Accommodation in full comprises; entrance vestibule, wide and welcoming reception hallway, impressive open plan living / dining area, fantastic country style kitchen with centre island plus plenty of space for dining and family living, a useful utility area and WC sit close-by. The formal dining room is currently being used as an office-come-reception area and this in turn leads into the artists studio which is a superb size with vaulted ceiling and French doors leading to the garden. A turned, wooden staircase leads to the upper floor and opens out to an equally spacious landing from where we find four good size double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities and the well appointed family bathroom.
Outside there is lots of surprises with decked areas accessed from both main public rooms creating a clear sense of flow. The tastefully landscaped private rear garden with deck and orchard add to the pleasure. A greenhouse, garage and gated drive complete the picture. There are two plots which could in theory be used to built, subject to the appropriate planning.
Shinafoot is set approximately 2 miles from the centre of the picturesque village of Auchterarder, near the world famous Gleneagles Hotel and Golf Course.
