Property Description


This fabulous home sits within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and has about 7.5 acres of land including approximately five acres of paddock grazing with a stable block and manege.

Whilst enjoying the delights of its rural location, it is still within 20 miles of Glasgow city centre and easily commutable for Glasgow and Edinburgh. The district is served by excellent primary schooling and it falls within the catchment of the highly regarded Balfron High.


The accommodation, which falls over two levels, extends to circa 2,100 sq ft. (excluding the garage) and comprises of an entrance porch leading to a reception hall with staircase to the upper floor, walk-in coats cupboard, a shelved hall cupboard and storage under the stairs.


Overlooking the beautiful gardens, there is a lovely formal sitting room with double aspect including patio doors and, at the focal point, a fine fireplace with log burning stove. A separate formal dining room cleverly shares the fireplace and stove to provide a wonderfully cosy entertaining space.


The attractive kitchen offers a real traditional cottage style atmosphere featuring a Belfast sink and an oil-fired green Aga. The kitchen extends open-plan through to the family room which makes for a great day-to-day living space.


A convenient utility area is accessed from the hallway and provides space for kitchen appliances with a door outside leading through to a laundry area, toilet and the study/office.

The property has four bedrooms, three of which can be found upstairs with bedroom two enjoying an en-suite shower room. In addition, a luxurious family bathroom with roll top bath can also be found on the upper level. Situated on the ground floor, the charming master bedroom offers an open plan dressing area with built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.

The patio doors lead directly outside on to a delightful elevated decked area upon which the pleasant outlook can be enjoyed.

Outbuildings include two garages – one integral and one detached timber. The stables incorporate three loose boxes, a feed room and a separate tack shed. Separately adjacent to the house, there is a kennel. The grounds include grazing of just over 5 acres, well fenced and with water troughs, formal natural garden grounds around the house of about 0.5 acre and the access lane and stables of about 0.6 acres. Adjacent to the stable is a lower field of some 0.6 acres and finally, a woodland of some 0.7 acres giving approximately 7.5 acres in total.

This is quite simply a delightful spot to call home and provides a fabulous opportunity to live within some of Scotland’s most scenic countryside.
