Property description

Situated on the southern edge of Blairgowrie. Surrounded by mature woodland at the end of a scenic driveway, the property is very private despite being so close to town.
Blairgowrie is a busy rural town surrounded by farmland. There are good local services including schooling, medical centre, cottage hospital, supermarkets and a variety of shops and restaurants. Perth and Dundee offer rail services within 19 miles, and great shopping and attractions, and airports are available at both Dundee and Edinburgh.

Druidsmere offers plenty outdoor pursuits, including golfing, hiking, cycling, local lochs and rivers for watersports and you can enjoy deer stalking and game bird shooting on nearby estates. There's also skiing at Glenshee and the Cairngorms, just 20 miles north.

Druidsmere is an imposing, B list red sandstone property, with corner turrets and constructed in 1885 by architect Andrew Heiton, along with its former walled garden and cottages. Set in 31acres, approached by a splendid rhododendron driveway, the property is completely screened from the road. Druidsmere has many fine period features, particularly the bathrooms and dressing rooms, where beautiful cabinets and original sanitaryware are still in existence. There is potential for Druidsmere to be sympathetically modernised to become a magnificent family home, boutique hotel or events venue. A grand oak door opens to reception with stunning fireplace and mantel. An archway opens to the main stair and remaining accommodation on the ground floor including small kitchen, living/dining room and breakfast room. A huge open fireplace set with polished copper and dark timber beams, a circular turret room, half tiled walls and large panelled windows give the rooms enormous character. Also on the ground floor there is a study, wine cellar, cloakroom, pantry, bathroom and two WCs.
The north wing has potential as ancillary accommodation. Linked to the main house by a corridor, this is where the back door to the house is situated. The ground floor consists of kitchen, two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, laundry room and wood store. The accommodation on this floor requires complete renovation.
The House has two staircases: One at the front which services the main reception rooms and bedrooms, and a back staircase which reaches the third floor. Formal reception rooms are on the first floor and both the drawing room and dining room have large windows, decorative fireplaces and quirky turrets, looking west towards the Loch, serviced by a pantry and additional kitchen. On this floor there’s also four double bedrooms, three have en suite bath or shower. Three more impressive bedrooms, two dressing rooms, a bathroom and a shower room are on the second floor. On the third floor accessed by the back stair, is the billiards room. With curved timber beams spanning the arched ceiling, wood floor and carved fireplace, it is another superb room. In addition, there are two further en suite bedrooms, a butler’s pantry and a WC.

The Lodge is a delightful cottage at the entrance to Druidsmere. It has a sitting room, dining kitchen and en suite bedroom. The property is harled with a slate roof and has painted timber fascias. It has a car port and enclosed garden.

Stables Cottage is 2/3-bedroom, situated at the end of the stables. The property is arranged over two storeys with kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and two bedrooms on the ground floor, a bedroom with shower room and attic on the first floor. Attached is the coach house, tack room and stables. There are original features inside the old stables. This building offers great potential for development.

Gardener’s Cottage is located close behind Druidsmere House. Itis a charming one-bedroom cottage with a sitting room, bathroom and bedroom. The cottage has a south facing position in the woodland behind the main house. At one time used as a nursery school, The School House is currently empty and requires complete renovation. Most recently it was used as a three bedroom, single storey property with a sitting room and kitchen. It has a pretty location within the wooded grounds of Druidsmere.

Druidsmere is set in 31 acres of gardens, woodland and the White Loch. The woodland surrounds Druidsmere and its cottageswhile expanses of neat mown lawn create some lovely open spaces. The former walled garden is now down to grass but much of the original wall is still intact and the dilapidated glasshouse remains in place. The front driveway leads to parking on both sides and a back drive loops around the rear of the house, past Gardener’s Cottage, Stables Cottage, The School House and back to The Lodge. The grounds to the southeast are mainly woodland and there is a grassy field at the far southern tip of the grounds. White Loch forms a picturesque backdrop and attracts a variety of wildlife. The loch is currently leased to the Blairgowrie, Rattray & District Angling Association who stock the water with trout.
