Scarth Road, Luncarty, Perth PH1 3HE
Luncarty House is located in Luncarty, Perth and is an old Victorian style property which was originally the family home of the Stevensons who owned both Stanley and Luncarty Mills. The mills provided work for the local people both in Luncarty and Stanley and the home remains very much part of this local community.
In the early 1980’s the house was developed as a residential home, which stands today. The building maintains a lot of the original character features such as original fireplaces, wood panelling in the dining room and main staircase. The lounges still have the look and feel of the original drawing and morning rooms.
Balhousie Luncarty is registered for 32 residents of which 8 are cared for within the specialist Dementia Unit in the home.
Accommodation is provided in mainly single rooms, some of which have en-suite facilities. There are three rooms available for shared occupancy.
Luncarty has extensive grounds with several flower beds, a rockery and a hedge of rhododendrons which provide an abundance of colour throughout spring and summer. The driveway to the home is lined with several very old and mature trees which provide a backdrop to the extensive lawns.
Balhousie Luncarty retains its Victorian grandeur, while the care within is provided in a homely family way, by professional staff.
