St James Parsonage is situated within the small hamlet of Ardbrecknish on the southern shores of Loch Awe.

The area is a popular tourist destination attracted by the multitude of activities available on Loch Awe and within the surrounding countryside.

Dalmally is a thriving community that has its own doctor’s surgery, pharmacy and Post Office as well as grocers, police station, fire station and church plus a well respected primary school. In addition there is a 9 hole golf course and new village hall which sees regular activities including badminton, drama, dance and ceilidhs. Dalmally is also served by a railway station, which links the village to Oban and Glasgow.

The principle local centre is that of Oban, which provides secondary education for the Ardbrecknish area.

Oban is a busy town, which offers a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities including a leisure centre with swimming pool as well as a range of bars and restaurants. Oban which is is an expanding port with an attractive sea front known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’ and busy harbour from which the Calendonian MacBrayne ferry service operates serving the Inner Hebrides and some of the Outer Hebridean islands.

From Glasgow Airport take the M8 north. Then take the M898 onto the A898 and follow the A82 towards Crianlarich. At Tarbet take the A83 signposted to Inverary and at Inverary take the A819 to Oban.After approximately 9 miles turn left onto the B840 signposted Cladich.
Continue along the B840 for approximately 2 miles and St James Parsonage is on the left as you enter the settlement of Ardbrecknish.

St James Parsonage occupies an elevated and secluded site within the settlement of Ardbrecknish. The house was probably constructed in the1930’s and is predominantly of harled brick under a slated roof.

The property is approached via a driveway which crosses in front of the property and to the rear passing a detached garage/bothy which could be modernised and upgraded to provide either additional accommodation or useful workshop and garaging space.
The main entrance to the house is to the rear, although the front entrance is the primary entrance. The property, which has been occupied until recently would benefit from modernisation and upgrading and with imagination could be reconfigured to provide attractive and practical family home.

The kitchen which has fitted base units and a window to the south west is functional but would benefit from upgrading.

To the north east of the kitchen and to the rear of the sitting room is a breakfast room which could with the necessary consents be knocked through into the sitting room to create a most commodious space or alternatively could be used as a nursery or dining room.

The current dining room which has a north westerly aspect and lies adjacent to the kitchen could potentially form the kitchen as it is a large and bright room with views over the garden.

The sitting room which has windows to the north west and east is again a bright room which could form the centre piece of the house. The entrance hall has a small cloakroom which has been created within the entrance lobby and an attractive staircase to the first floor level.

At the first floor level there are four bedrooms plus a bathroom and landing area with linen press.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 have a north westerly aspect with attractive views over the garden and surrounding countryside.
