Inside stunning family home with indoor slide for kids from bedroom to kitchen


A stunning family home that comes with its very own indoor slide leading to the kitchen is still on the market – with a £45,000 price drop.

Viewpark in Alyth, Perth and Kinross boasts one of the most unique extra features on the property market in Scotland.

The nine-bedroom property includes a bespoke £10,000 stainless steel chute that was installed by the current owner so that children can slide from their bedroom to the kitchen.

Agents say the slide means your children will “never be late for a meal again”.

The detached period home was put on the market back in May 2017 for £695,000.

Despite its stunning interior and unique family features, the property has remained on the market for almost four years.

The owners have since slashed the price to offers over £649,995 – making it a bargain buy for future buyers.

The house includes a granny flat and attached holiday cottage, which can be used as a holiday let to gain some extra income.

It also has five bathrooms and boasts high ceilings and intricate cornicing in many of the rooms.
Free standing baths with incredible views of the garden make this property a must-see.

Ceiling to floor windows are featured in many of the rooms, allowing light to flow right throughout the impressive property.

The overall plot is approaching an acre and the garden grounds are mostly located to the side and rear of the building.

McEwan Fraser Legal state: “The property offers ample period features throughout with a modern twist and has had no expense spared in bringing the internal conditions up to a very complementary level.

“From one of the children’s bedroom you access a twirling slide which leads out into the breakfast area next to the kitchen on the ground floor.

“Any child will love this unique feature and will never be late for a meal again.”

Alyth is a town in Perth and Kinross, about 17 miles northwest of Dundee.

The town’s estimated population is 2,400.

According to the website ‘ Understanding Scottish Places’ – founded by the Scottish Government – “Alyth is a historic burgh”.

It adds: “Historically agricultural related activities such as linen and jute and cattle droving were important.

“Today this continues with sawmilling and agricultural machinery works.

“This type of small town is extremely mixed in terms of demographics.

“There are particularly wide ranges of people, housing and activities.

“The number of older couples with no children is higher than average.

“There is a mix of professional and non-professional jobs, and part-time and self-employment are both important for a significant proportion of residents.

“Socioeconomic status is higher than in other types of town and there is a mix of professionals and nonprofessionals, those with higher and lower educational attainment.”

About 36% of the working population commute more than 5 km, to places such as Dundee, Blairgowrie and Perth.
