Star property under £250,000

You cannot get much more blissful than the rural setting of this adorable cottage amid a tiny hamlet.

Garden Cottage is part of what was once known as Tullicro, a ‘fermtoun’ in Scottish English, meaning a collection of cottages for workers on a farm.

And you don’t just get one cottage for your money – West Cottage is also part of the property, a single storey structure currently used for storage which is ripe for renovation.

Garden Cottage & West Cottage are for sale with offers invited over £225,000 and the property is marketed by Irving Geddes, Crieff at OnTheMarket – including a professionally filmed video tour

There are just four other inhabited properties in the small group of homes to the west of Aberfeldy in Perthshire, three of which are arranged around a neat triangle of grass affectionately known as the village green.

Garden Cottage has a studio living room with kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, utility room, store room and attic.

The surrounding countryside is a picturesque mix of rolling fields, woodland and heather-clad hills.
