Beautiful country house in stunning west coast location

Description

High Lunderston is a stunning country home constructed of stone under a slate roof and built around 1724 by the Laird of Lunderston. Occupying an enviable south facing position above Lunderston Bay, the property offers spectacular panoramic views over the Firth of Clyde, Isle of Bute and the Cowal Peninsula with Goatfell on the Isle of Arran visible on a clear day.

The property and grounds extend to approximately 7 acres with a beautiful garden, orchard and woodland with various rare specimen plants and trees. The surrounding countryside is mainly rough grazing land and forms part of the nearby Ardgowan Estate.

Accessed via gates, the private driveway leads up to the main house with ample parking for multiple vehicles. The main accommodation extends to approximately 2374 sq ft over two floors with tastefully decorated and spacious rooms throughout; most rooms take advantage of the view south with the exception of two bedrooms which look to the north.

The central reception hall has a turned oak staircase leading upstairs and a focal fireplace with wood burning stove and an original engraved lintel from when the house was built. All the ground floor accommodation is located off here and includes the impressive drawing room with a traditional solid fuel open fire and large windows giving plenty of light. There is a separate sitting room which also benefits from a fireplace and fabulous views, while the stunning conservatory was designed to take full advantage of the property’s position.

The dining kitchen is superb and is fitted with high spec appliances, contemporary floor and wall mounted units, excellent quality worktops and an AGA. The central island houses an induction hob and an elevated breakfast bar, while the separate dining area makes this a fantastic entertaining and family kitchen. A handy utility room, WC and boot room are positioned off the kitchen.

Completing the downstairs accommodation is a guest bedroom and the spacious family bathroom with freestanding bath and shower cubicle.

Upstairs, there are four further generously sized bedrooms with the principal bedroom benefiting from built in storage and dual aspect views. The luxurious shower room completes the first floor accommodation.

Externally, High Lunderston has superb outbuildings including garages, two stables with tack room and a 2 acre grazing field, tool shed with wood store, insulated kennels and a bothy/single room cottage with wood burning stove. To the front, High Lunderston has a sunken patio with undercover BBQ area and hot tub. A raised sitting area by the conservatory is perfectly positioned to enjoy the open outlook.

The extensive garden and grounds are breathtaking and offer total privacy and seclusion. The main portion comprises lush green lawns with mature shrubs and rare trees including a Bahrain pine, eucalyptus tree and a handkerchief tree (Davidia involucrate) that flowers for the first time after 25 years. Rhododendron-lined paths lead to a stream and the quaint “Wee Bothy” with wood burning stove.

The planted garden is surrounded and sheltered by a hedge and benefits from a first class greenhouse with heating and water supply ideal for growing grapes or more exotic specimens. The orchard is sheltered and surrounded by a hedge.
