Unique early 19th century detached cottage in idyllic setting in the village of Glendaruel in the heart of the Cowal countryside. Brimming with character, the cosy property has been upgraded in recent times and comprises three bedrooms, lounge with multi-fuel stove, dining room, kitchen and family bathroom. The spacious grounds include a recently constructed BBQ hut which would comfortably fit 10 people, and further benefits include the new top-of-range water filtration system and private septic tank. This is truly a one-off property and would make a perfect holiday home or a lucrative holiday let and should be seen to be fully appreciated.
Glendaruel is a peaceful village nestled in the rolling hills and countryside of Cowal and is the perfect place to enjoy the quiet life away from the hustle of city living, but with benefit of having larger villages like Strachur, on the shore of Loch Fyne, and Tighnabruaich on the Kyles of Bute, nearby. Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town, is only about half an hour away. Glasgow can be reached by road in approximately an hour. In the Glendaruel and Strachur area there are pubs, tea rooms, a petrol station with shop, doctors, schools and playparks.

Gardens and Parking
The lodge benefits by having spacious gardens with the BBQ Hut (3.85m x 3.45m / 12’8” x 11’4”) being the main feature. Constructed in very recent years, the hut seats 10 – 12 people and offers a perfect area for socialising and enjoying the benefits of al-fresco eating either out on the decking, or inside the warm and cosy hut. The rest of the garden is made up of lawn, patio areas, shrubs and trees. There is also a private parking area off the shared (but rarely used) driveway to the ‘big house’. A gentle stream trickles by the opposite side of the driveway and is set off the quiet road between Glendaruel and Strachur.
The current owners installed a modern and very efficient water filtration system to ensure that the private water supply is always fresh and clean.
The property also benefits by a private septic tank, which is situated at the other side of the driveway.
