Glentower House is stunning both inside and out.
If you have ever imagined yourself as Rapunzel, then this is the house for you.
Glentower House is a Victorian former shooting lodge and cottage in a beautiful Perthshire setting, overlooking the River Devon.
And the best bit…it comes with its own castellated tower so, like the famous fairytale character, you can let your hair down any time you want!
The six-bedroom property, over three floors, was built as a shooting lodge in 1880 for landowner, John Bald Harvey, whose coat of arms with the inscription “Garde Bien” (Watch Well) can be seen at the rear of the house.
Situated in Glendevon, one of the most scenic glens in the lowlands of Scotland, Glentower House is a real hidden gem, a venue steeped in history but with all the mod cons that would make an ideal family home with a difference.
The heart of the house is the open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room on the ground floor, which opens out on to a balcony with stunning views of the River Devon.
Upstairs, the property boasts a large master bedroom with beautiful ceiling cornices and a gorgeous outlook to the Ochil Hills, three more bedrooms and a shower room.
The staircase within the tower leads to the second floor, where there’s a fifth bedroom with en suite shower room and a guest bedroom suite, including a roll top bath.
The vantage point from the second floor bedroom provides some of the best views the house has to offer. And there’s room for more guests with two-bedroom Lavender Cottage, currently let as holiday accommodation, in the grounds.
It has its own sitting room, kitchen and bathroom, and a suntrap patio. As if Glentower didn’t boast enough interior beauty, the extensive gardens covering almost four acres are gorgeous too.
From the balcony there’s a timber staircase and path leading to the water’s edge and footbridge over the river, where fishing is permitted.
It’s also perfect for a whole host of other outdoor activities, including walking, and golfing or just to escape the pace of city life.
Glendevon is easily accessible, and just a stone’s throw away from Auchterarder and the famous Gleneagles Hotel.
It’s an ideal location which provides quick access to the mountains, lochs and scenic towns of central Scotland.
