Clyde Property Website

HD Property Video Available. The Old Smithy is a deceptively spacious five bedroom detached cottage enjoying a fantastic plot position within the small hamlet and conservation area of Meikleour.

Accommodation in full comprises; reception hallway, impressive front facing sitting room with wood burning stove, large open plan kitchen and dining area, useful utility room which provides direct access to the charming and extremely private side garden, five bedrooms (master with en suite shower room) and well appointed family bathroom completes the accommodation. Subject to the usual consents the cottage could be extended to include an additional bedroom and en suite facilities to the first floor.

Externally there are large well maintained and well stocked garden grounds, a generous driveway which provides parking for several vehicles, a detached garage with power and light, summer house, shed, greenhouse and working well.

The Old Smithy is found in Meikleour, a picturesque village which includes the charming Meikleour Hotel which retains its former Coaching Inn character. Meikleour offers easy commuting access to local towns, with everyday amenities to be found in Blairgowrie and Coupar Angus.

For those who may be interested in the history of the property.....During the Battle of Culloden an officer’s horse threw a shoe and Mr Barty shod it. The officer was impressed and asked if there was anything he could do in return. Barty said he should like to be blacksmith at Meikleour. This was duly granted and in 1746 four stakes were driven into the ground to mark the site where the Old Smithy stands today. The Barty family occupied the property from 1746 until 1947. There is also an ordnance survey point on the side of the cottage.

The City of Perth lies about 12 miles to the south west and the thriving city of Dundee is about 17 miles to the south east.

A wide range of recreational activities can be enjoyed in the locality. As well as traditional country pursuits, golf courses may be found nearby at Alyth, Perth and Rosemount (Blairgowrie), whilst the famous championship courses at St Andrews, Gleneagles and Carnoustie are all within 35 miles. Winter sports may be enjoyed at Glenshee, about 30 miles to the north.

Primary schooling is available in Blairgowrie and also Glendelvine, with secondary schooling at Blairgowrie High School and a further four secondary schools in Perth. There are also a good number of excellent private schools with transport links in the area including Craigclowan Preparatory School, Strathallan, Kilgraston and Glenalmond, all near Perth, and Dundee High School with buses running from Blairgowrie.
