House-hunters seeking a tranquil lifestyle with surrounding rural scenery – as well as reaping the benefits of a fully immersed energy efficient property – may find their dream home at Mains of Mawcarse.

Located just a couple of miles from the attractive town of Kinross and boasting enviable panoramic views of the Loch Leven basin, Mains of Mawcarse is a small hamlet of 14 individually designed eco-homes which are ideal for family living.

The properties at the new development incorporate cutting-edge, energy saving technologies – such as triple glazed windows that ‘lock in’ heat and promote solar gain and highly efficient air source heat pumps – to dramatically reduce fuel bills for the buyer.

To complete the whole attractive package, Mains of Mawcarse blends its contemporary features with traditional countryside characteristics, offering pitched roofs, dormer windows, private gardens and a woodburning stove – the ideal setting for cosy, peaceful nights in.

Situated within easy commuting distance of Perth and Edinburgh, Mains of Mawcarse is currently on the market with Perthshire-based Chartered Surveyors, Land and Estate Agents Bell Ingram, with the range of homely three and four bedroom properties priced from £375,000 to £559,000.

Carl Warden, of Bell Ingram in Perthshire, said: “This development of properties offers potential for families looking for the ideal home that oozes character and that is abundant in traditional country charm.

“The extensive use of renewable energy measures also ensures that heating bills will be kept to a minimum, as well as allowing ‘green-minded’ individuals to support their environment protection agendas.

“What’s more, the development is situated in one of the most attractive areas of Scotland and the uninterrupted countryside views across the Lomond Hills that are on offer can only truly be appreciated in person.

“Mains of Mawcarse also provides the best of both worlds in terms of accessibility – boasting a peaceful setting which guarantees privacy, while its close proximity to the thriving town of Kinross, and short commute to both Edinburgh and Perth, provides the perfect mix of both urban and rural facilities.”

History and outdoor enthusiasts will not be disappointed as the local area is rich in opportunity for both. Kinross is on the doorstep of Loch Leven, Scotland’s largest lowland loch which is home to a huge variety of wildlife and plant species. The surrounding area also provides a variety of al fresco pursuits, including walking, cycling, angling, horse riding, gliding and golfing – with more than 100 golf courses within striking distance, including the world famous Old Course in St Andrews.

The area also has strong historical connections, as it was in Loch Leven Castle that Mary, Queen of Scots was incarcerated before making her escape to England. Ferries run regularly to the island on which it stands.

Viewings of the three and four bedroom properties at Mains of Mawcarse are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Perth office on 01738 621 121.
