Alexander House is striking. It’s a large property set in a prominent position overlooking Gleneagles and the Perthshire Hills. The house is split into two wings (refs UK31608 and UK31607) for self-catering holidays. The East Wing (ref UK31608) is the larger of the two halves of the house, and offers a very high standard of accommodation. It’s luxurious throughout and presents a truly special holiday opportunity. It is very comfortable for up to twelve guests. The East Wing is split over three floors and has six bedrooms and five bathrooms. You enter the East Wing on the ground floor and arrive into the magnificent dining hall which hosts a beautiful circular table ideal for special occasions.The staircase to the first floor leads up from the dining hall, but first you’re drawn through to more of the ground floor. The inviting drawing room lures you in with its muted reds and green velvets. It’s a spacious room with a large open fire. It also has a cards table and a games cupboard. Beyond the drawing room is another fantastic space, a huge double-aspect open-plan kitchen, living and dining room. For more relaxed meals, it’s here you’ll want to eat because there’s a huge scrubbed pine table. The living space is very comfortable and where the 50’’ TV is found. The kitchen has everything you’ll want to cook up a storm for relaxed fare or special suppers. The truly special element of this room is the light coming in from the south facing courtyard on one side and the expansive views to the north on the other. The design of the room is sublime.Back to the staircase and up to the first floor you go. This floor is dedicate to sleeping quarters. There are four en-suite bedrooms. A huge kingsize master suite with bathroom hosting freestanding bath. Another kingsize double room with sleigh bed. And two zip and link twin/double rooms. Up again to the second floor and there are two further bedrooms, a twin room and a triple room. There’s also a family bathroom as well as an extra seating area on the landing with a TV. Back down to the ground floor and there’s access to the courtyard from the drawing room and open-plan kitchen, living and dining room. The courtyard is a special space because it’s very sheltered, surprisingly warm and has a heated swimming pool and a hot tub. The rest of the grounds are shared with those in the West Wing (UK31607) which makes up the other half of the spectacular Alexander House.East Wing is a spectacular property albeit with a slightly characterful layout. It offers luxury throughout and would make an ideal base for a family exploring this historic part of Scotland. It’s also going to be a fine choice for those looking to play golf at nearby Gleneagles as well as other quality courses in the area. There are also several estates in the area that offer field sports. And for those who simply like to go for a walk or ride their bicycles, you’ll be spoilt for choice of routes.
