Property Description

Full description

McEwan Fraser Legal are delighted to present to the market this prestigious and generously proportioned C listed stone built Victorian detached house with expansive gardens.

Outline planning permission for a separate dwelling house, set within 3.75 acres of land. On a commanding, elevated position with glorious views sweeping across Loch Leven, towards the Pap of Glencoe, it really is a sight to behold.

Accessed from the main A82 trunk road from Glasgow to Inverness, a sweeping private driveway gives access to the property which has been extensively and sympathetically renovated over the years by the current owners, bringing together a truly unique house, exuding charm and appeal that will immediately impress. Constructed in 1863, The Old Rectory was originally built for the Dean of Glencoe, hence the extra space and expanse of grounds.

On approach, there is a beautiful patio area, perfect for enjoying the peace and tranquility, and gazing at the boats as they sail by. Upon entering via the front door and vestibule, you are greeted by an impressive hallway, filled with natural light and home to a solid oak staircase. Leading off the hall are the dining room, drawing room, kitchen, utility room, cloakroom and room used by current owner as a work space, which is only the beginning of the journey into this grand home. The inviting kitchen is ideally placed for everyday family life and is complimented with a range of floor and wall mounted units, with a centre island, and Rangemaster cooker as the focal points. Also on this floor are the former servants’ quarters, which have been thoughtfully transformed into a separate self- contained annex, perfect for guests or as a letting apartment/ holiday home, with an open plan kitchen/ living room, home to a cozy wood burner, a family bathroom, a double bedroom, and two separate rear entrances.

There is a wealth of period features throughout the property, of particular note are the fireplaces, cornicing and sash windows. Climb the stairs where you will find four double bedrooms, all with fireplaces, and en-suite facilities. This impressive property with its private lawned gardens encasing the property on all sides is set within 3.75 acres which includes a large front lawn, part of which was formerly a tennis court. To the rear are further lawned zones, part of which has up to date outline planning permission for a separate dwelling house. The property is surrounded on all sides by wondrous views, with Sgorr Dhearg mountain immediately to the rear, and a wonderful babbling brook Allt Guischean bordering the property, which also provides an endless supply of fresh water to the home.
