Live Like a Monarch of the Glen

4c. Frenchton 2Those craving the joys of an idyllic rural life can look no further than this impressive farmhouse, offering house hunters the chance to be their very own monarch of a Perthshire glen.

Perfectly positioned between the small hamlet of Harrietfield and the Glenalmond Estate, Frenchton Farmhouse enjoys a beautiful rural setting near to the River Almond – yet still close to Perth.

Dating back to the mid 1800’s the bright, south facing and spacious farmhouse benefits from immaculately presented modern interiors yet still retains its traditional touches.

Recently extended to incorporate part of the adjacent outbuildings, the property consists of flexible accommodation that can be used as a 6 bedroom house. However, the new extension, complete with its own external entrance, may also be used as a self contained property annex such as a luxury granny flat.

Stylishly finished, with a light and airy feel throughout, the generously proportioned property has light oak floors, deep sills and copious built in storage for all the family’s needs.

Set in three acres of grounds, green fingered gardening enthusiasts will not be disappointed as they can cultivate the already well established flowerbeds, shrubs, hedging and the great variety of trees surrounding the farmhouse.

Perth-based estate agents Bell Ingram are now marketing the property for offers in the region of £590,000.


Joanne Stennett from Bell Ingram, said: “Country living is a dream for many and this property provides the ultimate opportunity for that dream to be fulfilled.

“Enjoying a fantastically tranquil setting whilst remaining within easy reach of Perth, Dundee, Dunkeld and Edinburgh, the farmhouse could be the perfect rural bolthole for city commuters.

“There are also an abundance of high quality schools in the area including the popular Logiealmond Primary School, with secondary schooling in Perth, as well as private education facilities such as Glenalmond College, Kilgraston, Craigclowan, Strathallan, Ardvreck and Morrisons, making it the perfect spot for families.

“Properties of this ilk really don’t come onto the market too often so I would highly recommend that interested parties arrange a viewing as soon as possible to truly appreciate its spectacular offerings.”

In addition to its well manicured gardens, there are also two grazing paddocks to the rear of the farmhouse as well as a range of useful outbuildings with potential to be used as workshops.

With a bountiful array of recreational pursuits for the hill walker, cyclist, and fisherman alike the property is ideally located for lovers of the outdoors. Golf aficionados are also well catered for with prestigious championship courses such as Gleneagles, St Andrews and Carnoustie all within easy reach.

Viewings are strictly by appointment only so for more information and to register an interest in the property, prospective purchasers should contact Bell Ingram’s Perth office on 01738 621 121.

Established 112 years ago, Bell Ingram has 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices, including chartered surveyors, estate and forestry managers, architects, green energy specialists and estate agents.
