Former gate lodge hits the market in popular Perth location for less than a two bedroom Edinburgh flat

The Lodge, Bowerswell Road, Perth, is a charming three-bedroomed detached house which was formerly the gate lodge to Bowerswell House.

Looking quite compact from the approach at the front, this very pretty house actually offers a great deal more than first meets the eye.

It has a lot going for it, being a detached period property on a relatively modest scale it could perhaps appeal to downsizers leaving a grander home who want the historic feel of a large country house, but not the proportions.

With three bedrooms it would also attract young families looking for a convenient city home that is full of character.

The lodge is located in Kinnoull and set in its own grounds but still within easy walking distance of the city centre.

What is more, it is actually much larger than it first looks, having been extended at the back recently.

This has added a big kitchen and living area, with high windows to let in lots of light but still maintain privacy.

Doors lead out to a charming sunny decked garden at the back and it has a courtyard garden and a summer house.

There is a floored and lined attic space accessed from the hallway via a fold-down ladder, giving more space which could be used for extra storage, as a study or a brilliant den for children.

The Lodge is on the market for offers over £299,000 with Thorntons.
