Georgian Townhouse in Perth - Overlooking Park, 2 Games Rooms, Walled Garden



Updated: 08-Dec-2016
Georgian Townhouse in Central Perth - Minutes From Restaurants And Bars

Atholl Place is a listed Georgian crescent situated in the centre of Perth. It is fabulously located overlooking the North Inch park and River Tay. The Concert Hall, shops and restaurants of Perth are just a few minutes walk away. The house was built in 1797 during the reign of George III when Perth was leading the way in Scottish architecture. It was completely restored to its former glory in 2012 and now contains all modern conveniences, whilst still retaining its original period features. It has 4,500 square feet of living space over four floors. There are 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and an additional cloakroom. Sit down with the newspapers in the formal drawing room, check your emails in the study, settle down in front of TV in the family room or soak up the evening sun in the garden room. For more energetic activities, have a game of pool or table tennis. The large fitted kitchen leads directly into the dining room with ample seating for 12. The mature garden is fully enclosed.

About the Owner

Sarah and I moved to Scotland in 2010 after some 15 years in London. At first I continued to commute down south for a few days each week and Sarah worked in Dundee. We now have a young family, I work in Edinburgh and we are both loving the lifestyle up here.

My family are originally from Scotland and we wanted somewhere more relaxing to live and with access to the countryside. It has been a great move for us and we are really well settled in now.

Wonderful Memories

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was perfect. We didn't want to leave. All of the rooms were spacious and full of character. Great location. The games rooms were a big hit with the kids. Can't recommend highly enough.

From the Owner

We found Atholl Place in the spring of 2011. The house had been empty for a little over two years, had been poorly maintained and had fallen into disrepair. But the building was magnificent with many original features still present and the location was amazing. How often do you find a 4,500 townhouse within minutes of all the shops and restaurants but with views of green fields and the river? It took almost a year to complete the renovation. We have brought it up to 21st century standards but with a very sympathetic view to how it looked in the past. Where we could, we have repaired the period features and we have used period styles and furniture throughout. We hope you like the result!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Edinburgh at 50 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Various at 0.3 Kilometres Nearest Golf : North Inch at 0.1 Kilometres Nearest Train : Perth at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : M90 at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Various at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Glenshee at 40 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Broughty Ferry, Dundee at 25 Kilometres Car: not necessary


The nearest beach is at Dundee (20 - 25 minutes drive away) and the stunning coastline of Augus is about a 45 - 60 minute drive. Lunan Bay and the Montrose basin are particularly recommended.


The nearest international airport is Edinburgh (about 40 minutes' drive). Glasgow airport is only about an hour away. Dundee also has a small airport serving London, Belfast and Birmingham.

The nearest railway station is Perth - a 15 minute walk or just a short taxi ride away.

Perth transport is good with regular bus services operating in the city and to the nearby towns.

There is a good choice of car hire agencies at the airports and in Perth itself.


Atholl Place is right in the centre of Perth but has an unimpeded view of the North Inch park. The Concert Hall is literally less than 2 minutes away and the high street less than 5 minutes. There are numerous restaurants, pubs and bars all within a short walk.

Further Details:

Perthshire is one of Scotland's most beautiful regions and caters for all tastes. Take a look around the historic Scone Palace, visit the towns of Dunkeld or Pitlochry, fish on the River Tay, play golf at Gleneagles (home of the 2014 Ryder Cup) or walk through the stunning countryside.

Dundee is an easy 20 minute drive away and is a city undergoing major investment in the waterfront area. Golfers may be interested in St Andrews, just 45 minutes' drive through some beautiful countryside .With Edinburgh only 45 minutes drive away, it is easily accessible for those who would like to explore the city during their stay.

There is plenty to do and you will find some more ideas on our own web site and we would be happy to make suggestions ahead of your arrival.

Perth itself is easily accessible from all of the major transport hubs in Scotland. The city has some fantastic restaurants, all just minutes' walk from the house, with a wide selection to suit all tastes. For casual dining or a drink out, there are some excellent pubs, both in the city centre and just outside of Perth.

The house itself is situated on the North Inch, an extensive park situated between the city and the River Tay. There is a lovely walk along the river bank and the park also has its own golf course and sports facilities. The house looks across the park and the upstairs bedrooms have clear views of the river.

Perth has all of the shops you would expect for a city and, with the high street just about 2 minutes' walk away, it is easy to pick up provisions during your stay.

From the Owner

The house is so convenient for all of Perth. There are two reserved parking spaces right outside the front door but you won't need a car if you are exploring the city as everything is just a few minutes away. But take a walk through the North Inch park and along the banks of the River Tay and you will quickly forget you are in a city at all. If you don't plan on going out, practice your pool or table tennis in one of the two games rooms or just sit and relax - there are plenty of areas in the house to choose from. The dining table is "board room" style and comfortably seats 12 making it ideal for those special occasions and family get togethers. Perth itself is well located to explore the surrounding area. There is not much traffic up here and it is easy to get about.
