Thornhill is a thriving village in the heart of rural Perthshire, south of Callander, east of Aberfoyle and west of Doune, surrounded by open countryside and Flanders Moss, the largest remaining area of lowland bog in Scotland and a site of special
scientific interest, hosting an abundance of beautiful plants and rare wildlife. The name Thornhill is supposedly derived from the thorn covered ridge on which the village is situated. Thornhill was founded as an early planned village in 1696 and most buildings date from the 18th, 19th and 20th century. Thornhill has a village primary school and secondary schooling is at McLaren High School in Callander, a local bus is provided for pupils. Within the village there is a community hall, church, a

GREEN OAK HOUSE
Believed to have been built in the 1700’s Green Oak House is a character village property of white washed render under a slate roof which has been a much loved family home for many years. The property has now been brought to the market in need of
modernisation and upgrading but presents a unique opportunity to acquire a detached village house with wonderful views across the Carse of Stirling with generous garden grounds. There are two rear entrances to Green Oak House which include a ground floor front door and an external staircase which leads to a door at first floor level. The property may therefore be suitably divided into two apartments, subject to obtaining the necessary
consents. Currently the accommodation comprises:
Entrance hall. Utility room with Belfast sink and storage cupboards. Cloakroom with WHB and WC. Bedroom with wonderful views over the surrounding fields. Bedroom two with windows facing the church, integrated cupboards and a fitted wardrobe. Bedroom three/Lounge with fireplace, views over the gardens and a press cupboard. Stairs lead to:
Upper landing/dining room with storage cupboard. Bedroom four with dual aspect. Family bathroom (shower over bath, WC and WHB). Galley Kitchen (fully fitted floor and wall units). Door leads to external staircase. Living room with fireplace.
The outbuildings were erected over 50 years ago and previously served as workshops and storage, some elements are now in poor repair they would benefit from being removed or replaced. They include a brick built workshop with harled render and asbestos sheet roof with two timber lean-to buildings and a timber shed with partly felted roof. Within the gardens there is a timber garage and two wooden sheds, a greenhouse and a redundant outdoor toilet.
The garden grounds are predominantly laid to lawn with a number of herbaceous beds, seedling and mature trees bounded by perimeter hedging and fencing.
