In a rural setting, yet easily accessible to Dunblane’s town centre, “The Carthouse” sits in a favoured position within a stunning development of converted farm buildings. With panoramic views over Dunblane and the Trossachs, “The Carthouse” is set amidst its own wonderful landscaped gardens with water feature and pond making this is a truly unique and highly desirable property.

“The Carthouse” offers flexible accommodation over three levels with four bedrooms, a large breakfasting kitchen, dining room, lounge, turret room, utility room and integral garage.

The lounge has all the features of a traditional farm cottage. With exposed beams, wooden flooring and a wood-burning open fire, this is a really relaxing room in which to unwind or entertain. This room further benefits from French doors leading to an outdoor seating area and providing pleasant views of the water feature.
Leading off from the sitting room is a cosy turret room. Providing a tranquil corner in which to read the papers or enjoy a coffee, it has wonderful views overlooking the garden and surrounding countryside.
On the same level, there are three double bedrooms including a spacious Master bedroom with its own en-suite, a walk-in fitted wardrobe and Juliet balcony. The en-suite includes a shower unit with mains-powered shower, hand-basin and WC.
