HISTORIC BOTHY/LODGE HOUSE + DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY APPROVED
Drenched in local history and immersed in natural charm, East Lodge and its walled garden have been sympathetically restored and maintained and exude rustic Scottish charm. Set in one acre of ground, the property boasts a semi-rural setting that almost amounts to splendid isolation and instantly feels like a family home.
This former Bothy’s accommodation presently includes a choice of living areas and a sunny, atrium-style conservatory, showcasing the outdoor scene. The galley-style kitchen has been stylishly modernised as a home chef’s delight, designed with ease of function and entertaining in mind.
Award-winning gardens and natural woodland surround the Lodge. Manicured lawns and a well established mixed borders evolve with the seasons. Plenty paved areas make for easy outdoor living and entertaining.
The property boasts lucrative development potential. Its financial appeal begins with an attached granny flat/studio - already providing monthly rental income. Permission existed to operate a class 4 business on the property that was allowed to lapse, but could be revived. Planning permission currently exists to replace the Victorian greenhouses with three self-contained holiday lets, which offers scope to establish a thriving home business if this were preferred.

• Positioned within award winning gardens and natural woodland of almost an acre
