Property Description

Full description

Located just outside of Drymen, Buchanan Castle Estate is a much admired enclave of detached executive homes located in the grounds of the former Buchanan Castle. Within the estate, there is a local golf club and a number of pleasant walks to be enjoyed. The estate is very popular for clients who enjoy outdoor pursuits and activities as it borders the West Highland Way and is only a few miles of Loch Lomond itself. The estate falls within the Loch Lomond and Trossach’s national park and or clients have obtained full planning permission to build within the national park, arguably, this is the last property to be built within the curtilage of the estate itself.

The site has full planning permission for the erection of a modern architect designed two storey and basement detached dwelling house which is approximately 4305sqft of accommodation with a further open basement area which extends to a further 2153sqft. You will see from this brochure that there are extensive plans indicating the potential that the site has to offer. The clients architects, Puregreenspace will be able to liaise with clients with regards to the plans and would be delighted to act for any potential purchaser throughout the built process and to completion.

The site at the moment contains a small holiday chalet style building which will be demolished as part of the proposed redevelopment. The proposed building is of a high specification and design and utilises the gradient of the site to provide a raised first as well as attic floors which will then benefit from the open outlooks to the south west over the open farm land, to the River Endrick and beyond. The site is serviced with mains water and electricity, it is envisaged that the property will be heated by gas central heating with additional wood burning stoves within the living accommodation. The property is also on mains drainage.

The house, albeit substantial, will only take up around 4% of the footprint of the site leaving ample garden grounds which are well stocked with mature trees. Generally, the footprint is to be set out as to maximum the solar benefits of the site on the south side.

The north elevation is to be well insulated and visually closed from the road, providing the house with added privacy from Buchanan Castle’s driveway. The south elevation also will have outstanding views across the river plane of the Endrick. The south elevation therefore will have substantial amounts of glass to take advantage of the views. Externally, parking will be moved nearer to the road to avoid a steep driveway and also to enhance the access to the property through the winter periods. The site is on a gradient, this will be utilised to create an invisible level footprint which is chosen to suit mature trees and will require the removal of trees that are not an enhancement to the site.

The house will be raised with all living accommodation above 3m which presents the under croft to be used for studio/workshop and storage space. The architects have worked hard to meet and better the aims of the national park, this by careful choice of renewables, materials and by preserving the natural feel of the site, with the exception of the removal of a few trees, the majority of the 0.48hectare site will be left as a natural habitat. Solar panels and heat pumps will be integrated into the building. This contemporary dwelling will have crisp detailing along with an Elastomeric rendor and zinc.

Our clients will be more than happy to meet any prospective purchaser on site to discuss the project in more detail. This brochure incorporates a number of architectural plans and elevations. Further information can be provided upon request including full planning details, site plans, topographical drawings and tree reports.
