Families may also enjoy the proximity of Tree Tops to well-regarded schools – Kinnoull Primary is less than a mile away – and Perth’s excellent amenities are within easy reach. Rising up behind Tree Tops is about 10 acres of mixed woodland with grassy pathways, open glades and pretty viewpoints.
Whilst there is a right of way for an off road vehicle to drive to the woodlands, it is an easy walk from the house to the top of the woodland area and it is also a wonderful place for exercising dogs, collecting wood and observing wildlife.
At the top of the woodland is a gate providing direct access to Kinnoull Hill and all its excellent walks and cycle tracks.
“Because we have our own access in to Kinnoull Hill, you can walk for 15 miles through the woodlands and on quiet forest tracks without ever having to cross a road,” adds Roy. “But of course it is the views I’ll miss most – you can see right over the city to the hills beyond, and it changes daily. It’s never boring.”
