A modern day country house and cottage with exceptional specification

Location

Cattermuir Lodge is set in approximately 13.5 acres of charming grounds to the west of the popular small village of Croftamie in Stirlingshire. Croftamie is within a National Scenic Area and The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, Scotland's first National Park. It first developed around a railway station in the 19th century and although this is no longer in use, it remains an extremely popular village for commuters by road to Glasgow (19 miles). Croftamie itself is distinguished by some splendid Victorian houses and village life centres on its pub, the Wayfarers Tavern, and its local shop and post office.

The village is within the catchment area of the well respected Balfron High School (5 miles) and the local primary school can be found in Drymen (2 miles). Drymen is the gateway to the south-east shores of Loch Lomond and has further local services including shops, bars, restaurants and a private health club at the Buchanan Arms Hotel.

The acclaimed Buchanan Castle Golf Club is within only a few miles and is regarded by many as one of the area's best courses. Other outdoor pursuits abound, with excellent low ground shooting on neighbouring estates and fishing on the nearby Endrick and Catter Burn. Loch Lomond is known widely for its water sports including sailing and water skiing from the nearby Milarrochy Bay.

Description

Cattermuir Lodge was built in 1968 and was owned at one time by the late Sir Hugh Fraser. It is of rendered brick construction under a slate roof. Although already built to a very high standard, the current owners have embarked on a programme of modernisation and improvement and Cattermuir Lodge now offers accommodation of the very highest standard.

Perhaps the most striking area of the house is the reception hall which is of a scale not often found in properties of this period. The tone of the property is set here with its splendid minstrels' gallery, two impressive stained glass windows and richly coloured wooden panelling. Off the reception hall is the drawing room with an imposing fireplace and an oriel window with spectacular views over the policy woodland to the Trossachs. Also accessed from the hall are the sitting room and dining room. Completing the reception areas on the ground floor is a colonial style conservatory which can be accessed from both the sitting room and the dining room and enjoys sunshine from morning until evening. Adjacent to the dining room is a large kitchen fitted by Clive Christian.

From the hall a sweeping stairway leads to the upper apartments which enjoy panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. The master bedroom is of a generous scale and offers a well appointed en suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms, a gym or study and two further bathrooms on the first floor, and two further rooms on the second floor.

A wing incorporates a double garage and a leisure area with gymnasium, sauna and an impressive swimming pool with fitted bar and steam room.

Cattermuir Cottage:

Cattermuir Cottage is a single storey cottage with good letting potential, discreetly positioned on the right hand side of the drive just before Cattermuir Lodge. Off the reception hall are the sitting room, two bedrooms and the family bathroom. . The sitting room has an open fire set into a marble surround and wooden mantelpiece. It leads to a modern kitchen with dining space. The kitchen is well appointed with integral appliances including dishwasher, hob, oven and hood, fridge and freezer. Off the kitchen is a good sized utility room with a door to the back garden. An inner hall accessed from both the utility room and the sitting room leads to two further bedrooms. The large master bedroom has extensive fitted wardrobes, French doors onto the rear gardens and an en suite shower room.

Garden and grounds:

Impressive painted iron gates lead up to a tree lined drive past Cattermuir Cottage and sweeps towards Cattermuir Lodge. To the east of the main house is a hard standing with space for a number of cars and an all-weather tennis court.

The grounds surrounding Cattermuir Lodge are magnificent with neatly manicured lawns, a great variety of perennial shrubs providing seasonal colour and mature trees providing shelter and privacy. To the west is policy woodland which is home to varied wildlife and is a wonderland for playing children.

Square Footage: 8,338 sq ft
