Set in over 2 acres of land on the outskirts of the coastal hamlet of Newton, Drimdarroch House is a fabulous 4 / 5 bedroom bungalow with truly outstanding views of Loch Fyne, the rolling Knapdale Hills and the surrounding countryside from its stunning location in the quiet and peaceful village of Strathlachlan, on the outskirts of Strachur. Built in 2007, the impressive property comprises an extremely comfortable loch-facing sitting room with open fire, a spacious dining kitchen with adjoining utility room, four double bedrooms, study / bedroom 5, family bathroom, en-suite shower room and cloakroom. The extensive grounds include a paddock with ménage, a private garden at the rear with small burn leading to a duck pond, a lovely decking area at the front, parking for numerous vehicles and several outhouses including a stable. Properties like this, in such a gorgeous setting, do not come on the open market very often so early, and full, viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the splendour on offer.
Surrounded by rolling countryside and hills, and on the shores of Loch Fyne, Strachur (Gaelic for “Valley of the Cur”, with the ‘Cur’ being the name of the river flowing from the hills east of the village) is situated perfectly for commuting to Dunoon, the bustling capital of Cowal, the Royal Burgh of Inveraray, or Loch Lomond but is still only little more than an hour away from Glasgow. In the area there are local pubs, tea rooms, a golf course, post office, a petrol station with well stocked shop, doctors, schools and playparks. It is the perfect location from escaping the hustle and bustle of city life, but with everything you want on your doorstep.
