Foswell Coul lies on the north-eastern periphery of the town of Auchterarder occupying a roughly nine-acre site consisting of mixed age and species amenity broadleaf woodland and grazings. The surrounding land use is predominantly arable agriculture interspersed with woodland coverts and shelterbelts before giving way to the more upland landscape of the Ochil Hills which rise to the northeast and the southern Grampian Mountains of Ben Chonzie, Choineachain Hill and Auchnafree Hill to the northwest.
This enviable and relatively secluded location allows one to fully appreciate some of rural Perthshire’s spectacular scenery and enjoy the full range of colours on display with the passing of the seasons.
Extending in total to approximately nine acres, Foswell Coul consists of the existing cottage, extensive garden, a stone and lime miniature bothy, and former byre as well as various other smaller sheds, outbuildings and enclosures currently used as kennels. Beyond the house and ancillary buildings there are around seven acres of woodland grazings and a further two acres of mixed broadleaf amenity woodlands forming a riparian strip along the Ruthven Water which is owned to its mid-point or “medium filum” in Scots legal parlance.
The property is accessed by its own tree lined private hardcore track which joins directly to the B8062 public road.
The surrounding land use is predominantly grazing interspersed with arable farmland and amenity woodlands.
Now requiring of a degree of renovation and indeed modernisation, Foswell Coul is a traditionally constructed and sought-after style stone and lime cottage under a pitched
timber framed slate covered roof, all pleasingly nestled amongst a mature primarily road-leafed mixed age and species woodland. The property currently extends to approximately 156m2 and includes a large kitchen, utility off the kitchen with ancillary office/store/larder, large living room, sunroom, conservatory, double bedroom, and bathroom/wet room with shower on the ground floor, while the first floor provides two further double bedrooms and a shower room with WC. The property is partially double glazed and benefits from mains water supply while drainage is by way of septic tank. Central heating is via an oil-fired boiler with the tank located to the east of the house.
Subject to securing planning permission for the addition of an extension, Foswell Coul has the potential to provide a substantial, spacious and flexible family home.
Foswell Coul has around nine acres of land, of which about seven are regarded as woodland grazings/paddocks. The remaining two acres are primarily mixed broadleaf amenity woodland, which create a riparian strip along the Ruthven Water and follow the boundary to the east. There is also a small area of willow coppice.
While it could be put to a number of uses such as an intensive market garden or hobby farming, it would undoubtedly be ideal for horses and stabling, in addition to immediate curtilage of the existing house which would provide ample room for a large vegetable garden and smaller stock animals.
A programme of selective thinning may create additional space for further natural regeneration which can help create a more complex and biodiverse habitat providing shelter for a wider range of native wildlife. Even small-scale regeneration can make valuable contributions to the overall diversity of tree cover which helps to support a healthy ecosystem.
