The dining kitchen has expansive dimensions and a Farmhouse-inspired aesthetic, finished with varnished wooden floorboards and olive-toned décor with white detailing. It accommodates a large table and chairs, and is arranged around a central island. Wood-toned cabinets and deluxe Corian worktops complete the look, along with an Aga (AIMS) gas range cooker. Additional appliances include an integrated dishwasher and space for a freestanding fridge/freezer.

The second and third bedrooms are equally impressive in their size, the latter also benefitting from a walk-in cupboard and a south-facing aspect with the most wonderful garden views stretching to the River Tay. On the first floor, there is also a versatile single bedroom that could be an ideal home office. If desired, the formal dining room can be used as another double bedroom as well, providing buyers with flexibility.

Some four miles east of Dundee on the north bank of the Firth of Tay, Broughty Ferry promises the best of both worlds: a coastal lifestyle with the vibrant city on its doorstep. During the Industrial Revolution, when Dundee established its wealth in ‘jute, jam and journalism’, the former fishing and whaling village of Broughty Ferry was transformed into one of the most affluent suburbs in Europe, which accounts for its rich stock of grand detached villas and mansion houses. The seaside resort remains a popular tourist attraction today, with visitors drawn to its long, sandy beach and esplanade, 15th-century Broughty Castle, and its array of fashionable eating and drinking spots. Broughty Ferry enjoys all the local amenities you would expect of a small town, which are supplemented, of course, with world-class shopping, culture, and heritage in Dundee. The UK’s first UNESCO City of Design, Dundee was also named Best Place to Live in Scotland 2019 by The Sunday Times. In addition to excellent road (and public bus) links for local and national travel, Broughty Ferry station operates regular services to Dundee and further afield to Aberdeen, Arbroath, and Edinburgh. Daily flights and direct trains to London are also available from Dundee Airport and Dundee train station, respectively. Broughty Ferry offers education at all levels, with nursery schools, three primary schools, and a secondary school. Independent schooling and childcare options are also available nearby, including the prestigious High School of Dundee.

Broughty Ferry & Barnhill

Broughty Ferry & BarnhillBroughty Ferry, or "The Ferry" as it's better known to locals, may rub shoulders with Dundee but it retains a fiercely protected identity all of its own. The imposing 15th Century castle, now home to a museum, hints at the historic importance of a town whose story can be traced in her architecture.

The quaint fishermen's cottages and grid iron pattern of development hint at times past and they enjoy Conservation Area status, while the influence of Dundee jute wealth can be detected in the impressive Victorian villas and terraces overlooking the esplanade, top rated beach and the coast of Fife across the Tay estuary.

Nowadays, "The Ferry" and Barnhill may be fertile commuter territory for many of the 13,000 or so residents but the appeal of living here lies in her distinctive shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and boutiques, with Grove Academy and three primary schools catering for families lured by modern housing developments which have rolled out between the River Tay and the main north-south road.
