An historic station house near Crieff, situated on a disused railway line surrounded by countryside, has gone on the market for offers over £380,000 through SPC Scotland.
Innerpeffray Station House was built in 1866 with the arrival of the Crieff to Methven rail link, which connected Crieff to Perth before the line closed just over 100 years later.
The station house has been converted into a three bedroom home, offering three acres of grounds which covers parts of the dismantled railway line.
Much of the original platform still remains and forms part of the purchase. The southern side was used for loading livestock onto the trains, while the northern side was for travellers who sheltered in the station’s separate male and female waiting rooms.
The property is set over two floors, and includes a living room with stove, a large sun room, a sitting room, breakfasting kitchen and rear porch, and three double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the upper floor. Within its three-acre grounds there is also a brick-built store and a large garage/workshop with considerable storage beneath.
Planning permission was granted in 2010 for a large extension to the property, designed by award-winning Richard Hall Architects. While the three year time limit has lapsed, purchasers can apply for a re-instatement of permissions.
Caroline Young from SPC Scotland says: “Innerpeffray Station House is a wonderful family home with a fascinating history, not just for rail enthusiasts, and with potential for additional development. Set between Crieff and Auchterarder, it is surrounded by beautiful countryside and with access to good schools and outdoor pursuits.”
