Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Coldrach Steading is situated off a private road which leads through unspoilt countryside in the heart of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, in an accessible area to the north of Glasgow.

Drymen, a highly desirable village, is within walking distance to the south east of the subjects and provides a good range of local amenities including primary schooling, convenience stores, post office, pubs and restaurants, a bank and a private health club and spa within the Buchanan Arms Hotel.
Balfron (approximately 8 miles) has a larger range of shops and services as well as the highly regarded state secondary school. Stirling (approximately 22 miles) offers a wider range of amenities including a variety of shopping and leisure facilities, whilst Glasgow (approximately 18 miles) provides an excellent range of shops, restaurants and recreational facilities.

Coldrach Steading is in close proximity to transport infrastructure with both the M9 and M80 motorways within easy driving distance, a mainline railway station at Milngavie (13 miles) and Glasgow International Airport is approximately 23 miles away offering regular domestic and international flights.
The Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park provides for a wide range of recreational and leisure facilities including mountain biking, sailing, pony trekking, shooting and fishing. The surrounding hills are extremely popular with hillwalkers and Loch Lomond caters for a range of water sports. For golfers there is the nearby Buchanan Castle Golf club and the Strathendrick Golf Club on the far side of Drymen.

Coldrach steading occupies an attractive elevated position with views towards Loch Lomond and the Campsie Hills. It lies to the rear of the recently refurbished Coldrach Farmhouse and forms an extensive range of buildings which provide an excellent development opportunity. The buildings are category B listed and are stone built under a series of pitched slate roofs forming a large 'U' shape. The majority of the steading is in disrepair but parts are still suitable for general storage.
The subjects benefit from detailed planning consent for refurbishment and change of use of the steading building to 6 dwellinghouses. The properties have been architecturally designed and each property will benefit from open plan kitchen/living space. There will also be provision parking and garden ground to each property.

Detailed planning consent was granted on the site by Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park on 3 January 2013 under planning application reference 2012/0251/DET. Furthermore, a building warrant application has already been submitted in respect of the property. A further planning application has recently been submitted for the renewal of the existing consent.

Copies of the planning consent, building warrant application and associated plans are available in the technical information pack.

The subjects benefit from mains electricity and a water supply. A mains water pipe lies adjacent to the site within the track. Drainage would be by connection to a private system and the proposed location is marked on the site plan. Any system installed should have suitable capacity to also serve the development of 4 holiday chalets to the rear of the site. Furthermore, the sellers will grant necessary rights over the area outlined in blue on the site plan for the drainage system and to form the access to units 5 and 6 but will retain ownership of this area of ground.
