A desirable 300-year-old eco manor nestled in the Scottish countryside – which could earn the homeowner almost £15,000 per year from using renewable heat – has been placed on the market.
The ten-bedroom house which boasts a conservatory, a pantry, a wine cellar and six bathrooms is available for offers of over £2.15million.
Glencarse House, within the Carse of Gowrie and six miles east of Perth, is powered using a biomass heating system with a Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) – a government financial incentive, in operation until March this year, used to promote the use of renewable heat.
‘Over the past 20 years or so the current owners have invested substantially both initially in the renovation and refurbishment of Glencarse following their purchase and, more recently, through the installation of bio-mass heating to the ground, first and lower ground floors,’ the listing reads.
‘The Renewable Heat Incentive Payments have, in the last 5 years, averaged £14,700 per annum and these payments have a further 11¾ years to run.’
This means that over 11 years, the new owner could make back £170,000 through the incentive, should the figures stay the same.
The biomass boiler, with an associated plant and wood pellet store, can be found to the east of the house in an attractive courtyard.
