Kinross is located on the western shore of Loch Leven, the largest loch in lowland Scotland, at the foot of the Lomond Hills.
Settlement began as a convenient mainland base for Loch Leven Castle on the nearby island, which was a Royal castle and is famously associated with Mary, Queen of Scots’ imprisonment and escape in 1568.
Focused around Loch Leven’s historic associations, its unique landscape and ecosystem as well as its important native and migratory bird species meant that fishing, golf, wildlife and 4 heritage tourism have become major draws for visitors to the area.
Kinross has expanded rapidly since the 1970s, exhibiting the highest population growth rate in the Perth and Kinross area. The town’s rapid growth owes much to its geographic position which has fuelled its increasing role as a commuter town to the central belt.
Properties in Kinross range from large, well-spaced villas set back from the street in often generous garden grounds to modern, well-appointed housing developments.
Mr and Mrs Porter’s house is a beautiful example of the former with elegant sash and case windows being a critical style feature of their home.
After moving into their beautiful farmhouse, the Porters had decided to upgrade their rotting 1920s, timber windows. Having been impressed with the work we did in renovating two previous properties, the Porters knew exactly who to call the third time around.
“It’s our third experience with CR Smith and as ever – they’ve been fantastic! Our new home is now just a cosy as our last.” The Porters recognised right away that our attractive PVCu designs were the ideal replacement.
With our unrivalled range of windows, we had the perfect sliding sash window which is perfectly in keeping with the period and style of their home. These large windows make the most of our next generation ultra slim frames, filling their home with more natural light than ever before. And with all the benefits of modern engineering plus energy efficient double-glazing as standard, their home is now cosier than ever too.
