This one-of-a-kind family home, built in 1992 to a bespoke design, presents a rarely available opportunity in an exclusive neighbourhood on the picturesque Isle of Arran. Covering 2638 square feet, the home further boasts surrounding gardens, an integral double garage, and a breath-taking coastal outlook (including a balcony and a conservatory to admire the views). In addition to the main gardens, the seaside home comes with another massive garden area and an expansive plot of land with a second (detached) garage, which has huge possibilities for a conversion or for further expansion (subject to planning permission). Inside, the generous accommodation enjoys traditional styling that some new owners may wish to modernise, in order to add their own stamp.

Enjoying instant kerb appeal, with a very attractive façade framed by established palms and ferns, the front door to Terbar House opens into a grand reception hall that is defined by light coloured walls offset by rich woodwork and a classical carpet. Housing deep storage, the hall flows directly ahead into the dual-aspect living room. The first of three reception areas, this room is dominated by a tremendous fireplace canopy inset into an exposed brick feature wall, with an LPG-gas fired stove, a cosy space for pew seating, and feature windows. It forms a wonderful focal point for arranging more comfortable furniture, and the very generous floorplan affords an excellent variety of furnishings too, including a dining table for relaxed meals with the family. Furthermore, the entire space is flooded with natural light by a near-wall of glazed windows and French doors to a sprawling conservatory. This additional reception area provides an awe-inspired setting, brimming with Victorian country-style charm and perfectly capturing those breath-taking sea views. It has a huge footprint, with room for relaxing and socialising, and a large curvature that is ideal for a formal dining table. Encircled by the sublime outlook, it is the finest setting for dinner parties. The spacious lounge is much like the living room, with a dual-aspect and an oil-burning stove, though it enjoys slightly cosier dimensions for more intimate family time. It also features a near-full wall of glazing, this time with French doors to a sheltered gin terrace for unwinding in the evening with an inspiring sea vista.

In the dining kitchen, a farmhouse-inspired design comes with space for an additional (albeit smaller) dining table that is perfect for quick meals and is ideally place below an internal glazed hatch to the living room, which can be used for serving canapes whilst entertaining. It comes fitted with rustic wood cabinets and ample workspace in white, bordered by multi-coloured splashback tiles in muted effect. A ceramic hob, two eye-level electric ovens, and a dishwasher are integrated, with space for a fridge-freezer. Completing the ground floor is a modern three-piece shower room, with a double walk-in shower area.

Upstairs, a landing houses useful storage before leading to four spacious double bedrooms, which all enjoy soft neutral décor and snug carpeting. The master bedroom further boasts a classically-styled en-suite shower room and a full-wall of wardrobe fixtures. Best of all, it features glazed doors to a sheltered balcony. Whatever the weather, it is the ultimate romantic spot for breakfast and morning coffee accompanied by a perfect sunrise and a stunning view over the bay. Meanwhile, bedroom two benefits from fitted wardrobes and an airy dual-aspect, sharing the same lovely leafy green outlook as bedroom three, whilst the vast fourth bedroom, illuminated by skylights, offers lots of built-in storage, proving perfect for use as a bedroom, an extensive home office, or both. Finishing the accommodation is a three-piece family bathroom (plus shower attachment). Oil-fired central heating and double glazing throughout ensure outstanding comfort.

Outside, this amazing home is surrounded by magical gardens, with paths winding amongst colourful flower beds to a manicured lawn overlooking the glistening bay. To a large monoblock area for sitting in the sun and a patio for alfresco dining, beautifully framed by leafy greens. It also has a large gravelled garden (richly fringed by colourful plants) that comes with a greenhouse, a handy shed, and a detached garage. This section and a summerhouse are both ripe for further development, ideal for additional living accommodation (pending planning permission). An integral double garage (with electric doors) provides secure parking, plus excellent storage, plumbing for a washer/dryer, and convenient access to the lounge.

Extras: included in the sale are all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, a garden shed, greenhouse, and a summerhouse.

Whiting Bay, Isle of Arran

Whiting Bay is located on the south east corner of the island, overlooking the Firth of Clyde with views to the very southern point of Scotland. The village provides a newsagent, post office, pharmacy, two general food stores, café/bar, restaurant, bistro, hardware store, and a farm shop. There is a craft outlet and art gallery, as well as a picturesque 18-hole golf course. Primary schooling is available in the village and secondary schooling is found at the High School in Lamlash. The surrounding area provides some of Arran’s most scenic walks, not only along the shoreline, but also through the forest to Glenashdale Falls. The Isle of Arran, approximately 167 square miles in area, is sometimes referred to as “Scotland in miniature”, as it is divided into highland and lowland areas by the Highland Boundary Fault. The island is a popular destination for geologists due to the substantial volcanic activity around 16 million years ago in the Tertiary period. There are many stone circles and standing stones dating from Neolithic times, including those on Machrie Moor and the Giants Graves above Whiting Bay. Arran is approximately 60 miles in circumference and has some of the finest scenery in Scotland, with excellent walking, rambling, and sea and trout fishing. Tourist attractions include Arran Aromatics, Arran Heritage Museum, Lochranza Distillery, and Brodick Castle. There are seven golf courses on the island with ‘Terbar House’ ideally positioned for easy access to Whiting Bay Golf Club.
