Property Description

Full description

The turret is currently utilised as a home office and separate library, however, these could be utilised as two well-proportioned bedrooms if desired.

The property sits within well-stocked mature ornamental gardens of circa 1.5 acres. At the rear of the property, there is a large two storey former coach house of stone and slate construction comprising of a former wash house, carriage house and stabling at ground floor level with former servants’ accommodation and hay loft at first floor level. In addition, there is a stone, lean-to style store attached to the east elevation of the coach house, the coach house being linked to the main building by a substantial stone and slate store. This area has immense scope for redevelopment into further accommodation for the property or would make a fantastic area to run your own business from home. This versatile space would be ideal as a studio or be potentially useful as holiday rental accommodation.

The home has majestic views across Loch Long and to the mountains in the distance making it truly a home with fine water views of the Firth of Clyde.

The original dwelling house is estimated to date from 1860 or thereby having been substantially extended circa 1879.
