After a busy day exploring Dundee, 3 miles, enjoy family time back at this spacious property, with a 2-acre garden and a warm, comfortable interior.
Situated at the end of a quiet road, next to a working farm (no unaccompanied children allowed), this rambling farmhouse is great for families or groups, with plenty of space for everyone. It is an old Victorian farmhouse built around 1850 with 3ft thick walls to keep the weather out in the winter months, and the cool in, in the summer months. There are two staircases, with the back one being used by the maids in the olden times, perfect for a midnight raid on the fridge down near the kitchen area. It has been furnished in the style of its period, keeping its Victorian farmhouse character. A snug off the kitchen makes a great TV room for the children, while the large dining room seats 10 in comfort. The warm and comfortable interior is complemented by a 2-acre garden. Beyond is a large orchard bisected by a stream, with hidden areas – ideal for hide and seek! Planting at Binns Farmhouse is wildlife friendly, and the grounds have many visitors including migrating birds, toads, voles, hedgehogs, deer, unusual moths and butterflies. Trees and plants can produce seeds and berries at certain times of the year that attract the wildlife - but not all berries can be eaten!
Mixing a fascinating history with a fresh, contemporary look, the city of Dundee is just 3 miles away and has arts and culture in abundance, family friendly attractions and much more. There is plenty of shops to browse around, as well as excellent leisure facilities and the Discovery Point, a fantastic visitor attraction chronicling Captain Scott’s journey to the Antarctic on the research ship ’Discovery’. Perth, St Andrews, Carnoustie and Glasgow are all within an easy drive, while other interesting days out include hill walking in one of the 5 Angus Glens with their stunning hill and loch scenery, approximately 1 hour’s drive from the house, golfing at one of the many superb courses in the area, horse riding, fishing and sailing. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 3¾ miles.
