This beautiful, traditional country cottage has been modernised, extended and upgraded to the highest standard. The property sits in an elevated position close to the hamlet of Kilry, overlooking Glenisla and enjoys lovely open views of the countryside and the Grampians beyond. On the ground floor is an entry porch with utility room, a modern fitted kitchen with dining area and lovely views. There is a spacious lounge with log burning stove, a bay window and french window giving access to the courtyard. The property has four large double bedrooms, (two with adjacent shower room), and family bathroom all leading off the two hallways. Stairs lead to an attic conversion with two additional rooms (both with windows) and currently used as a study/studio, but could be used as a playroom or for storage. The cottage is double glazed, well insulated and has oil central heating. To the rear is a large (approx 1 Acre) paddock suitable for horses or other livestock plus some outhouses. The paddock slopes gently up the hill and is currently laid out with fruit trees, wild flower and orchid meadows. A quiet country lane leads from Kilry to a driveway to the side and courtyard to the rear of the cottage, where there is plenty of space for several vehicles.

The cottage sits on an elevated location overlooking the valley below. To the front, just off the lane, is a gravel parking area. Beside this, a large  open lawn runs down to a gravel driveway. The drive leads to the rear of the property and the courtyard, which is mainly gravel and can accommodate several vehicles and trailers. A steel farm gate opens from the drive onto a private paddock (approx 1 acre) situated on a gently sloping hillside. A path to the right leads to several outbuildings and kennels which can be used as workshops, hen houses, logs or other storage. There are a number of raised vegetable plots beyond which are fruit trees and open pasture. This area would be suitable for grazing horses, ponies or other livestock. The paddock is enclosed by hedges, dry stone walls and rabbit proof fencing. A picnic area with pond makes a lovely spot to enjoy the view.  Outline planning permission had been granted for a 1½ storey four bed house on the paddock, but this has since lapsed.

Location: Knowehead Farm Cottage is situated about 1 mile west of Kilry, a small hamlet nestling in the hills north of Alyth and about 10 miles from Blairgowrie.

A school bus, which also serves Websters High School in Kirriemuir, passes the cottage door each school day.

The nearby, picturesque Angus glens are wonderful for walking and cycling, Glenshee Ski resort is a 30 minute drive. There is a reliable broadband connection at the cottage.
