A beautiful family home has gone on the market offering space, a good location and a £10,000 steel slide!
The detached house in Alyth, Perthshire, is a beautiful period property “with a modern twist”. While it has been heavily altered by the current owners, the period charm remains and helps to create a warm and unique family home.
“We are delighted to offer onto the open market this substantial period detached family home boasting versatile accommodation arrangement,” says estate agency McEwan Fraser Legal.
Obviously, what stands out most about the property is the steel chute connecting one of the children’s bedrooms to the breakfast area. This is going to be a huge draw for families, and McEwan Fraser brags that “any child will love this unique feature and will never be late for a meal again.”
When it comes to cool kids' bedroom ideas, slides are always a popular choice, but it's rare to see a homeowner actually go the distance and install one! Whether it's a bed that we would have loved or an amazing cartoon statement wall, kid-friendly home features can really help to interest homebuyers.
The rest of the house is amply sized, offering nine bedrooms, five bathrooms and seven public rooms. From the ‘grand drawing room’, the homeowner can enjoy wonderful views of the town centre.
One of the biggest appeals of this property is its potential to provide “additional income as a holiday let”, according to McEwan Fraser. Attached to the house is a one and a half storey granny annex that features its own double bedroom, sitting room, kitchen and bathroom.
As if that weren’t enough, a “fully refurbished” holiday cottage can be found to the rear of the property with its own kitchen, bathroom, sunken living area, balcony and two double bedrooms.
“This stunning property offers any buyer the option of accommodating a large family or utilising this opportunity for additional income through a holiday let option,” the agency continues.
The small town of Alyth offers a wealth of outdoor activities, including a number of renowned golf courses and plenty of beautiful countryside. History lovers will also find lots to appreciate in the area, including a hill fort that local legends connect to King Arthur!
