The property sits on land that was formerly part of the Stronvar estate.
A typical original cottage of largely stone construction, the property has been extensively extended and upgraded by the current owners and presents a wonderful mix of period character and modern luxury. The original section of the cottage comprises a dramatic living space with side extension housing and an attic room. A more substantial rear extension comprises two fantastic double bedrooms and master bathroom over two floors which have been finished to the highest of contemporary standards. The property would make a wonderful residential home or country escape set to the backdrop of some of the most dramatic scenery offered by the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, renowned as one of Scotlands most rugged and inspiring areas.
Elevated from the road to the front, the property is entered through a central front door which leads into a handy vestibule before opening into the main reception space. The reception space occupies the whole of the original footprint of the cottage and is a real joy. Traditional character blends seamlessly with modern style. Exposed stonework, wooden flooring, original fireplace and gas fired stove meet the modern wood burning fire and stylish contemporary kitchen. The space on offer lends itself to numerous different possible furniture configurations. In recent years, an extension has been added to this living space which forms a separate dining room. Floor to ceiling windows allow you to soak in the stunning scenery surrounding the property. An internal staircase from the dining room leads to a cosy space which is perfect for a small table and two armchairs. Double doors from the dining room also open directly onto a patio.
The modern rear extension leads directly off of the main reception space.
The extension offers two fantastic double bedrooms over two floors. To maintain both head height and the natural roof line of the property, the foundation has been below the level of the main part of the house. This has allowed the inclusion of two generous double bedrooms, one with en-suite and a striking master bathroom. The lower of the two bedrooms comes complete with a contemporary en-suite shower room.
The master bathroom is exceptionally well finished and comes with full tiling and shower over bath. On the upper level is a cosy little area that looks out over the balcony to outside and has Velux windows, perfect for use as a study area or place to relax. A final twist to the extension is the bookcase in this area, swing this to one side and you find access to the attic rooms above the main house. This space can be utilised as a workspace, storage or even extra accommodation in a pinch.
Externally, an extensive rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and contains a free-standing wooden summer house. This is finished as a self-contained studio flat which would make perfect guest accommodation but has been used for Airbnb previously. Successfully achieving around £100 per night.
As an added bonus, despite the rural location, the property has fibre optic broadband.
This is a truly unique property and viewing is a must to appreciate exactly what is on offer.
