If you have ever leafed through a Scottish country magazine, you will know that there are certain homes that capture the imagination and just take your breath away. ‘Blairbeg House’ is one of those - beautifully positioned, but at the same time, a fun, atmospheric and functional place in which you can live life to the full with your friends and family.
Blairbeg House enjoys a slightly elevated and prime location in the heart of Whiting Bay, allowing awesome views over the ever-changing waters and towards the Holy Isle. ‘Blairbeg House’ was built in 1915, is typically Scottish in both appearance and construction and was previously a popular tea room and restaurant. This three/four bedroom (semi-detached) house retains much of its original character and charm and has been fully renovated and upgraded, but still retains many original features.
The subjects are entered via a welcoming reception hallway, with two storage cupboards, staircase off to the upper landing and access to the principle apartments. Access is gained to a useful shower-room. Immediately impressive is the dual-aspect lounge, which is of palatial proportions and the potential for a range of furniture configurations. The picture windows to the front aspect offer tremendous views over the ever-changing waters of the Firth of Clyde and into the heart of the village. The feature fireplace is the other key feature of the room and French doors beckon you from here onto the feature area of decking. Access can be gained from here to a family room, which has a variety of uses and is currently being used as a very comfortable study. This room could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom if desired (STPP). The open-plan kitchen/diner (with underfloor heating) has been fitted to include an excellent range of contemporary floor and wall mounted units, with a striking work surface, which provides a fashionable and efficient workspace. It further benefits from a range cooker with extractor over. There is further space for a dishwasher and an upright fridge/freezer. The utility room, off the kitchen, is plumbed for a washing machine and a tumble dryer. The dining area is open-plan from the kitchen and has ample space for a table and chairs for more informal dining with friends and family and similar views to that of the lounge can be enjoyed from this vantage point. A large cellar can also be accessed from this zone. French doors open onto the spacious decking to the front aspect, which is the perfect spot to spend a lazy summer’s day entertaining friends and family and has been used for this purpose on many an occasion! All the internal doors are oak with hardwood finishings and there is engineered oak flooring throughout the ground floor of the property.
The staircase leads to the first-floor level revealing a bright and airy landing, three substantial bedrooms and a family bathroom. All of the bedrooms offer tremendous views of the surrounding area and have storage facilities. The window seat in the third bedroom will make this a ‘must have’ room with all members of the family. The separate bathroom (with under-floor heating) creates the perfect ambience in which to unwind.
The specification includes electric (wet) central heating and double-glazed windows for additional peace of mind and comfort.
Externally, the property benefits from an easily managed and private garden. Parking is available to both the front and side of the property and there is the potential to extend the parking arrangement into the front garden (STPP).
