SLIDESHOW – Ancient meets modern

Cauldhame is a renovated and extended cottage, the original part of which dates back to the mid 1800’s and is ‘B’ listed. A truly unique property which originally was a farm smallholding with a mill house, cottages, barns and outhouses.

Over the years these were gradually split up and sold off, but the original cottage which has now been fully renovated and substantially extended by current owners, Robert Buckle and his family, is now available for the first time.

Robert said: “We bought the property when it was almost derelict with the intention of renovating and moving in. However this plan was stymied when my work as an architectural engineer saw me moving to Perth.

“It’s really a unique property, and I’m very proud of our achievements in the renovations carried out, which were supervised carefully due to the listing.

“With this home and it’s location, you can be living in the peace of the countryside, but still be within a 10 minute drive to the main motorway network.”
