McEwan Fraser Legal are delighted to present this unique property, a collection that is rarely seen on the open market. The new owners will have an opportunity to own a café which boasts outstanding trading figures, along with an impressive 5-bedroom family home.
The property itself is a former Manse which dates back to 1873 and was operated by the Church of Scotland until 1969 but is now a comfortable family home. Set back from the A82 it occupies a prime business location yet enjoys a private setting, with mature gardens and mountain views.
The main house and former church currently hold Listed Building Category B Award, retaining most off the original features including fireplaces, cornices, doors, staircase, and stained-glass windows.
On entering the house, the ground floor comprises of 3 reception rooms, all with working fireplaces, open plan kitchen/dining area with wood burning stove, wc, utility room and walk in cupboard.
The first floor comprises of 5 bedrooms, 4 of which are doubles with one bedroom having the added benefit off an ensuite and one single. One family bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower room. And a walk-in linen cupboard.
The rooms have recently been refurbished and offer cosy accommodation suitable for anyone wishing to live in this wonderful part of the country.
The café itself is being run as the Artisan Café and is self-contained within the original church with traditional features intact, including stain glassed windows and beams. There is a full commercial kitchen with separate prep area, 3 public toilets and outdoor seating. The current business model offers potential for significant increase in turnover through additional hours and covers.
Externally the house benefits from a large secure, turfed garden area with uninterrupted views, polytunnel, boiler shed and large garage offering secure off-road parking.
Overall, the current set would provide an excellent opportunity for the right person to run a successful hospitality business in the southern highlands.
Please note Strathfillian is not available on separate purchase terms.
