ARTHURSTONE HOUSE A special home forming part of Arthurstone House, a 'B' listed, handsome Country House, which is set in stunning, private grounds of about 35 acres and is deservedly listed as a building of significant architectural and historical importance.
The 'Lundie' is one of 15 beautiful and individual homes that were created within Arthurstone House during its redevelopment in 2005/06 and in accordance with the exacting standards of Historic Scotland. Traditional features were preserved wherever possible. The 'Lundie' occupies a prominent corner of Arthurstone House and has its own entrances.
Arthurstone House has mains water, electricity, gas central heating and private drainage. Broadband is available in the area. There is a service charge to cover the cost of communal maintenance/services and building insurance.
Location Arthurstone House is located at the end of a tree lined private driveway, off the A94, in a south facing situation looking over the Vale of Strathmore. To the south lie the Sidlaw Hills and to the north the Forest of Alyth, the Grampian Mountains and the Angus Glens. From the main entrance to the estate there are panoramic views to the north, west and east and residents of the property enjoy stunning views southwards, over the parkland of the estate towards the Sidlaw Hills. Meigle and Coupar Angus, both providing useful local amenities, are a short distance away and the Fair City of Perth lies about 16 miles to the south west and Dundee is about 15 miles towards the east. There is a wide range of recreational activities that can be enjoyed locally. First class fishing is available on the rivers Tay, Isla and Esks. Popular local golf courses are at Alyth, Blairgowrie and Perth and the famous championship golf courses at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Gleneagles are all within easy access. The ski slopes of Glenshee are about 25 miles away, while the quiet country roads and off-road trails surrounding the estate are ideally suited for walking, running and cycling.
History of Arthurstone House The name Arthurstone House is reputed to have come from a stone dedicated by the legendary King Arthur to his wife Guinevere. The earliest parts of the present house date from around 1789 when Captain James Ramsey rebuilt it upon older remains. In 1838, the owner Patrick Murray of Simprim commissioned William Burn to add the Victorian wing facing south-east and north-west, although much of this was subsequently dismantled by his son-in-law Admiral Brunswick Popham. By 1869 the house was owned by Peter Carmichael, head of the renowned spinners and manufacturers (Baxter Brothers of Dundee). He added the library and billiard room and the property remained in his family until 1990. The house was then used as a preparatory school until its closure in 2003. The present development comprises 15 properties and retains the character and charm from the Carmichael house.
