A STUNNING family home in Perthshire boasts a feature certain to make it a dream home for kids – a slide from the bedroom to the breakfast table.
The property‘s current owners spent £10,000 installing the 20ft curling slide, which carries little daredevils from one of the children’s bedrooms to the kitchen.
Of less interest the children, are the nine bedrooms and acre of land that also come with the £695,000 price tag.
The home in Alyth, near Blairgowrie, even includes a holiday cottage and an annex for a granny – who could, of course, risk a shot on the slide in the main home.
Sellers McEwan Fraser Legal promise children will love this “unique feature”.
They said: “From one of the children’s bedroom you access a twirling slide which leads out into the breakfast area next to the kitchen on the ground floor.
“Any child will love this unique feature and will never be late for a meal again.”
The seller added: “The client was keen for the slide to go in as they felt the house had lots of things in it for the adults – fibre network, top of the range kitchen appliances – and they wanted to have something special for kids.”
Elsewhere they promise: “Ample period features throughout with a modern twist and has had no expense spared in bringing the internal conditions up to a very complementary level.
“The main home comprises of the grand drawing room with views to the rear and over the town centre, the dining room adjacent and a large study or family room area.
“This stunning property offers any buyer the option of accommodating a large family or utilising this opportunity for additional income through a holiday let option.”
The nearby town of Alyth was granted a charter by King James III in 1488, with town being raised to the rank of Burgh of Barony with the right to hold markets and fairs.
