Summing up

Not only does it enjoy a spectacular the setting - located by the River Tay with the Glenlyon Hills as a natural backdrop – but more practically, the town centre, and its abundance of local services, is also within easy walking distance.

Lawers View and Craigthuill are two separate former schoolhouse buildings that have been transformed into four duplex and five one-level apartments, containing either one or two bedrooms.

The specification includes oak finish flooring to hallways and public areas, carpets to bedrooms, classically styled kitchens with oak worktops and fitted with a range of appliances from a selection of gas and electric hobs, electric oven and cooker hood, dishwasher, fridge freezer and washer/drier.

Public spaces are highly generous. In one flat the drawing room extends to approximately 425 square feet while in another the combined sitting/dining room/kitchen is a massive 745 square feet.

Deirdre Coogan of the selling agent, Edinburgh-based D J Alexander, said that interest was coming from several quarters – local residents, commuters (Perth and Stirling are a manageable 33 and 46 miles respectively) and potential second home-owners from the Edinburgh and Glasgow areas, attracted by the scenic location and the many choices of hill-walking, golf and angling available locally. They’ve even had a note of interest from the Bahamas.

Prices range from £165,000 to £350,000. Contact DJ Alexander on 0131-652 7313
