An Cro Cottage is situated in Calvine, a charming rural hamlet in Highland Perthshire which boasts the Struan Inn. Calvine is just 4 miles from the historic town of Blair Atholl where services such as a shop, garage, church, hotel and restaurants can be found. The whole area is steeped in history, with Blair Castle forming an impressive gateway to the Highlands for the last 700 years. Slightly further afield, Pitlochry provides additional quality independent shops, galleries and small supermarkets as well as great places to eat and drink. Further amenities, including a regional hospital, banks and other commercial services you would expect of a large urban centre can be found in Perth, approximately 38 miles to the south.
There are a wide variety of outdoor activities available in the surrounding area, including mountain biking, skiing, whitewater rafting and canoeing, as well as hill walking and climbing on the numerous nearby Munros. The House of Bruar is only 1 mile away, providing a renowned high-end shopping experience with a range of dining options and beautiful woodland walks. In Blair Atholl, there is a golf course and Blair Castle and Gardens which are open to the public and host a range of events throughout the year including the Blair Horse Trials. There is a primary school in Blair Atholl with a high school in Pitlochry and various highly regarded private schools within the wider Perthshire area. The Property is situated a short distance from the A9, giving easy access both north and south. There are frequent buses through Calvine and a mainline station in Blair Atholl with regular services to Inverness, Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow and London, including the Caledonian sleeper service.
An Cro is a traditionally constructed stone cottage under a pitched timber framed slate covered roof. While requiring a degree of internal modernisation, the property has the potential to provide a comfortable home and currently consists of two double bedrooms, a family bathroom, sitting room and kitchen.
The roof space has been used as additional accommodation in the past. However, there is currently no stairway or ladder to access this area, but this could be reinstated following some reconfiguration of the floor layout on the ground floor.
The property benefits from an enclosed lawn to the side and rear (west and north) of the house, with a small parking area to the front (south). The shed and ground beyond the fence to the rear of the property are not included in the sale.
The property is double glazed on the ground floor, with single glazing in the attic. It benefits from mains water and electricity, with drainage to a private septic tank. There is an
oil-fired central heating system, as well as a woodburning stove in the living room for additional space heating.
