A beautifully finished country home in turn-key condition
Pickston Meadow, along with three neighbouring properties, is situated in a scenic and sought after location on the southern fringe of the highlands. It is surrounded by a mixture of open fields and woodland but is only 10 miles northwest of Perth.
There is a local shop and post office in Methven, while Perth and Crieff (both within 11 miles) are well served with transport links, shops and professional services. Perth has a selection of leisure centres, a concert hall, theatre, cinema, museums and galleries. The world-renowned Gleneagles Hotel and golf courses are approximately 21 miles away and local golf courses are in Perth, Crieff, Muthill and Comrie. Fishing, shooting, stalking, horse riding, hillwalking and cycling are all popular pursuits in the area and there are lovely walks directly from the house.
Edinburgh, Perth, Stirling and Dundee are all within commuting distance of Pickston Meadow which is also well placed for schooling. There is a primary school nearby at Harrietfield, a choice of secondary schools in Crieff and Perth and private schooling at the prestigious Glenalmond College which is about a mile away. Morrisons Academy and Ardvreck Preparatory school are also in Crieff with Strathallan, Kilgraston and Craigclowan all on the outskirts of Perth.
Completed in 2019, Pickston Meadow is a beautifully finished new home. From the outside it has attractive traditional character with white rendered walls, a slate roof, dormer style windows and a larch clad porch and dining area. Traditional features characterise the interior with flagstone flooring, a wood burning stove, painted kitchen cabinets and a proliferation of large astragal windows. In every other way the interior is wonderfully contemporary with large bright rooms connected by a welcoming central reception hall.
The house has been designed with practicalities in mind: A broad front porch doubles as a boot room; there is a double bedroom and shower room on the ground floor; the utility room is accessible directly from the kitchen and has a separate external door. The sitting room and the open plan dining kitchen make the best of the southerly aspect of the house and overlook a sheltered paved terrace. On the first floor the south facing master bedroom has a beautiful contemporary en suite bathroom and two further double bedrooms share a pretty family bathroom.
A short gravel driveway leads to generous parking to the front of the house. The garden has recently been landscaped and planted. It is enclosed by a post and wire fence and a newly planted beech hedge. There is a hot tub in the rear garden while the terrace, which is accessible from both the kitchen and the sitting room, is a sun trap in good weather. The house has a lovely view over the neighbouring fields and pond.
The larch clad double garage has planning permission (19/01986/fll) approved for the formation of ancillary accommodation on the first floor accessed by an external staircase. This could make a superb independent office, studio, gym or even a guest suite.

From Perth take the A85 west towards Crieff. Just before entering Methven turn right to Glenalmond and Harrietfield. Go straight over the crossroads and after approximately 3 miles turn left towards Glenalmond. After about 1.5 miles and before reaching Glenalmond College, Pickston Meadow is the first of three houses visible from the road on the left hand side.
