Unique and eco-friendly stone property set in the heart of the countryside. Built just over a decade ago using local stone, timber, tiles and tradesmen this detached property will appeal to those looking for a country-style home but without the worry of having the common issues associated with older properties. Extremely well insulated (with sheep’s wool) and with a very good income generated by the solar panels, the versatile accommodation comprises of a sociable open-plan living / dining / kitchen area, three large double bedrooms with partitions offering extra accommodation, large mezzanine, wetroom and utility room. The log-burning stove, wooden beams and floor-to-ceiling window in the sitting room are just a few of the focal points of the main living area although the property is adorned with distinctive features throughout. Set in wrap-around grounds which also have stables and stalls this distinctive property should be seen to be fully appreciated.
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 immediate 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 from the hustle and bustle of city life, but with everything you want on your doorstep.
