This striking, four/five-bedroom, detached villa redefines what modern living on Arran is all about in terms of location, layout, style and detail. It would make a super family home and has the bonus of a self-contained, two-bedroom, appended annexe, known as Rivendell. It would be ideal for holiday lets, Airbnb or independent living and could easily be incorporated into the main house. It has one of the most beautiful positions on the Island and enjoys spectacular views over the surrounding area. Inside this extended home, you will find exceptional design and an inspired layout over two levels, that provides light-filled, spacious luxury, amongst gardens of around two-thirds of an acre, that are spectacular and have been lovingly tended. This is a secluded haven!
Creag Dhubh has been professionally extended twice (1990 and 2001) and is an enjoyable and functional place in which to live and to enjoy with friends and family. The property itself is deceptively spacious and provides a highly successful marriage of traditionally proportioned apartments, with several contemporary features. The property sits within spacious and well-maintained gardens, which have been designed for ease of maintenance and to also enjoy the wonderful scenery. This provides a private and safe environment for children and/or pets. Al-fresco dining and relaxing in the rear garden is thoroughly recommended! The property can be accessed via a private driveway, offering off-road parking for numerous vehicles, which leads to a detached garage (with power and light) and a car-port. To the rear of the garage is a useful utility room, which is plumbed for appliances and has a Belfast sink. For those with green fingers, there is plenty to keep you busy in the well-maintained gardens, with mature shrubs and a shed with power and light.
The front elevation of the property belies the accommodation internally. Access is gained via the utility room, which has space for a fridge and freezer and is the perfect spot for hanging jackets and storing wellingtons! The hub of the home is the kitchen/diner, which has been beautifully fitted and well equipped to include a good range of floor and wall mounted units with a striking worktop, providing a fashionable and efficient workspace. It benefits from a Range cooker and space for a dishwasher and fridge. The dining area has ample space for a table and is the perfect zone for more informal gatherings, with friends and family, as French doors open directly into the gardens. The dining room is located off the kitchen and benefits from patio doors opening into the garden.
An inner hallway is located off the dining room and three steps rise from here into the spectacular triple-aspect lounge, which benefits from reclaimed timber flooring and offers a range of furniture configurations. The open fire makes this room particularly welcoming. Patio doors open onto the balcony, which is the perfect spot for a lazy summers day enjoying the magnificent outlook. Steps lead down from the inner hallway to the heavenly master bedroom, which is quite simply the last word in luxury. There are a range of fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. For those requiring a level of privacy, a small (covered) terrace can be accessed via a set of Patio doors.
The main hallway on the upper level allows access to the thoughtfully planned ground floor sleeping accommodation and a door at the end of the hallway opens into Rivendell. There are four, well-proportioned bedrooms on this level and three have storage facilities. The guest bedroom has an en-suite shower room. The fifth bedroom might suit those requiring live/work arrangements and has patio doors opening into the gardens. It is currently being used as a very comfortable study. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.
The high specifications of this family home also include a combination of double glazing and Velux windows along with oil-fired central heating. Photovoltaic panels have also been installed and are on a competitive feed-in tariff and deliver low running costs to the house. The current owners can supply additional information to all interested parties.
Appended to the main house, you enter the cosy and independent two-bedroom annexe, which is perfect for holiday lets or an elderly relative or teenager requiring a level of independence. The internal door (from the main hallway) means that it can easily be incorporated into the main body of the house if desired. The property has a warm country feel and from the outside of every window, you are treated to views of the surrounding area and the gardens.
In more detail, the accommodation comprises; A door opens into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which is well proportioned, and the living zone is both bright and airy, with the added luxury of a multi-fuel stove. The kitchen has been fitted to include a good range of contemporary floor and wall mounted units, with a complimentary worktop. It further benefits from an integrated double oven, hob and extractor hood. There is space for a washing machine and an upright fridge/freezer. Access can be gained from the living zone into the sun-room, which is a great room to just relax and chill, offers views over the gardens, and has been used as a very comfortable dining/family room. A door opens from here onto the patio in the rear garden - which is a stunning spot to spend a summers evening entertaining and has been used for this purpose on many an occasion. Patio doors also open back into the main bedroom.
