Norwood is nestled in the heart of Auchterarder with the views to the rear of the property being of beautiful Perthshire countryside, it has a very rural feel.
When you enter the ground of the property via the private lane and into the sweeping gated drive you are met with the very unique building boasting a picturesque turret.
Norwood is a very attractive and grand building. The driveway has access lights and parking spaces for many cars and there are high trees to the front and side which add extra privacy from the access lane.
Situated on the driveway is the separate bungalow which is currently utilised as a games room and gym. This building has both power and plumbing so could easily be adapted to separate accommodation or an office space. There is a shed located at the rear of the bungalow.
The garden wraps around the entire property and is attractive and easy to maintain. It is laid mostly to lawn with some trees, mature shrubs and rose bushes. There is a large decking area which hosts a hot-tub and an ideal entertaining space with an area for outdoor eating. The decking is also accessed from the kitchen, conservatory and the lawn at the rear. There is a small shed to the far corner of the garden.
When you enter the property via the front door into the hall you can immediately see the vast amount of space and rooms available.
At the far end of the corridor is the very large and impressive lounge. Despite the immense size of the room, it feels warm and cozy from the gas fire which is situated in a lovely stone hearth and surround. This is also a great focal point in the room. There are windows to the front and rear of the property allowing lots of light. The room décor is of neutral tone wooden floor.
Also located on this corridor is a WC with toilet and sink, ample cupboard space, the kitchen diner and the second lounge which accesses the Conservatory.
The large welcoming kitchen really is the heart of the home. There is a vast amount of wall and base cupboards which are white shaker style and worktops are black with a flecked design. There is a large island unit which could be used as an informal space to dine, enjoy a coffee or even a gin & tonic! There is an American fridge freezer and also a wine fridge. The cooker is a large range cooker which enhances the feel of this family kitchen. The window at the sink in the kitchen looks out over the back garden and countryside beyond. From the kitchen you access the formal dining area which is located in the turret of the property. Again, this looks out to the rear of the property. There is also access to the decking area which is another ideal space for outdoor dining, weather permitting! At the other side of the kitchen, you access the utility room which boasts more wall and base cupboards, a sink and space for washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. There are also two large cupboards. You can also access the rear of the property from the utility room. The flooring in the kitchen and dining area is a neutral tile.
At the opposite end from the large formal lounge there is a smaller, yet equally as cosy, sitting room - ideal for those cosy family nights in front of the tv. From here you can access the Conservatory which has tiled floor and enjoys the countryside views. Ideal for those relaxing Sunday mornings with newspapers and a cuppa.
At the bottom of the stairs is the snug/study, an ideal for home schooling or working or just relaxing with a book. It has a rich feel from the wooden panelling and has neutral carpet.
There is welcome cupboard space in both the downstairs and upstairs hallways.
Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms, two of which boast en-suite facilities.
Single Room with built in wardrobe, overlooking the front of the property
2 double rooms both with built in wardrobes one with a view to the rear and one with double aspect
Large Double Room with en-suite facilities including a steam shower. As with all other bedrooms this room has built in wardrobes and again is double aspect to both front and rear of the property.
The principal bedroom is very grand with a corridor of wardrobes as you enter the room. You then realise the enormity of the room as it actually opens in to the upstairs turret space allowing another relaxation in this master suite. The room is neutrally decorated with neutral carpet. The en-suite in this room has an amazing jacuzzi bath, sink and WC and has chic black and white tiling.
There is a family shower room which is tiled on both walls and floor.
There is another interesting space on this floor. A large cupboard has been converted to a walk-in wardrobe/storage room and also has pull down stairs to an attic conversion. There is full planning permission for this conversion although a proper staircase has never been built for access.
The property has GCH and double glazing and a private sewage system.
