Lot 1 – Pinnerwood House, Grounds and Woodlands - offers over £595,000

Pinnerwood House
Set in over 30 acres of private grounds, Pinnerwood is nestled in an elevated, yet sheltered position, with a southerly aspect. The six-bedroom Finwood log house affords ample living accommodation, with a number of sizeable communal living areas, two en-suite bathrooms,
two further bathrooms, and a kitchen at the heart of the house overlooking the gardens to the rear.

Grounds
Pinnerwood house is accessed from the public road via a private gravelled driveway, leading through an avenue of Larch trees, before opening out to the lawns and gardens, with their established borders providing year-round interest and colour. In addition to the house, there is a self-contained chalet-style office to the front of the house, with an open fronted, five-car garage to the side of the house and a further chalet-style building currently used for general storage.

The majority of the grounds are formed by a beautiful mosaic of amenity and commercial woodlands, which have been managed to a high standard and benefit from a well-maintained network of rides and paths leading from the house. From the house, a path leads down towards the south-eastern corner of the woodland which contains a small pond and seating area, from where a path follows the burn along the southern boundary before looping back up and around to the house.

The garden and grounds are frequented by a range of birds and wildlife

Woodland
The core of the woodland is comprised of commercial Sitka spruce which, along with an attractive area of birch woodland, were planted in the 1990s following the harvesting of the previous conifer woodlands. The periphery of the woodland retains many mature trees, remnants of the original Strathallan Estate Policy woodlands, featuring majestic old oak trees and towering Norway spruce and Douglas fir, which provide a real sense of history while re-affirming the sense of seclusion within the woodland.

Services
Three phase electricity, public water supply (partially delivered through private pipes) and private drainage service the property. Heating is by way of an oil fired central heating system.
