A substantial B-listed coach house conversion within the National Park.
The Coach House occupies a beautiful position within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The area was officially given full operational national park status when it was opened by the Princess Royal in July 2002 and encompasses an area of around 720 square miles. Some of Britain's most spectacular scenery is found around the Loch Lomond area. The loch is actually crossed by the Highland boundary fault and the physical characteristics of lowland and highland Scotland can be seen within a few miles of each other. For sports enthusiasts the great outdoors awaits. There is superb climbing and hill walking in the area, with the Arrochar Alps including four Munros (mountains over 3000 ft) and six Corbetts, the best known of which is The Cobbler.
The loch is well known for its water sports including wind surfing, sailing and excellent water skiing. There are a number of well respected golf courses in the area including the world famous Loch Lomond Golf Course which is host to the Scottish Open. In addition there is the newly completed Carrick Golf Gourse which was designed by the acclaimed golf course architect, Doug Carrick, and was opened on 1st June 2007.
Helensburgh is approximately five miles away and has good shopping facilities including a choice of supermarkets. Hermitage Academy is the local secondary school, with Lomond School providing private schooling at primary and secondary level. Both Helensburgh and Balloch railway stations have regular train services with a journey time to Glasgow of around 40 minutes. Glasgow can be accessed by car, under normal driving conditions, in around 35 minutes. Glasgow Airport provides regular domestic and international flights to a wide variety of destinations.
The Coach House, as the name suggests, is the former coach house to Arden House, a magnificent Scots Baronial mansion by John Burnet, who it is thought designed the coach-house and stables also. It is thought that Arden House and its coach house and stables date from around 1867-1868 when Sir James Lumsden, the recently knighted Lord Provost of Glasgow, acquired the estate and commissioned the renowned John Burnet.
John Burnet (1814-1901) practiced as an architect predominantly in Glasgow. His early work is modestly classical, including Elgin Place Congregational Church (1856) and the Italianate 61-63 Miller Street (1854). His later designs include the exuberant Italian Renaissance Clydesdale Bank, St Vincent Place (1870) and the beautifully restored Cleveden Crescent (1876).
The coach house and stable block is B-listed and has a distinctly Scottish flavour with its slate roof, blonde sandstone and square turret. It was converted into three properties in 2004, the largest of which is the Coach House.
Finished to a very high specification, the Coach House offers flexible family accommodation over two levels. A broad, welcoming reception hallway leads to a downstairs bedroom, a contemporary shower room with tiling to full height, Shower cubicle and modern freestanding wash hand basin unit, and to the main reception room. This sitting room is generously sized, and has a magnificent trio of four pane, arched picture windows overlooking the courtyard. It also has plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. A staircase leads from the sitting room to upper level and double doors lead to the dining kitchen.
The kitchen has a tiled floor and solid oak fronted floor and wall units with granite worktops. Off the kitchen is a separate utility room with co-ordinating tiled floor, plumbing for washing machine and a stainless steel sink.
Upstairs is a large upper landing which the current owners use as a sitting room. There are three further bedrooms on this level and a family bathroom with integral shower and tiling to full height. The master bedroom enjoys an en suite dressing room and an en suite shower room with shower and modern suite.
The property is presently run as a successful holiday lettings business. Please contact our office for further information.
There is a private garden which is predominantly lawned and interspersed with some splendid mature trees which provide privacy and shelter. There is a large car park which is shared with the two neighbouring properties.
Our clients have planning permission for two one bedroom dwellings at the side of the Coach House.
