Isle of Arran
This striking, four bedroom (chalet) villa, which has been exceptionally upgraded and extended by the current owner since their ownership in 2002, redefines what modern living in Scotland is all about, in terms of location, layout, style and detail. The owner has created an architectural look and an internal aesthetic that is perfect for its enviable location in the Cordon area of Lamlash. Inside this home, you will find exceptional design and an inspired layout over two levels, providing light filled, spacious luxury, on a good-sized plot and still offers the potential to add a conservatory or further extend (STPP).
If you have ever leafed through a trendy design magazine, you will know that there are certain houses that capture the imagination and quite simply take your breath away. ‘Tigh-An-Eilean’ (translates as “Island House”) is that such place, beautiful, stylish, impressive, but at the same time, a fun and functional place in which to live life to the full and to enjoy with friends and family. This is a beautiful and very adaptable four bedroom, detached (chalet) villa, quietly positioned in this highly desirable location, offering interesting views to both the front and rear. This substantial family home is offered to the market in good condition and is finished to a high standard throughout. This home is for people who appreciate what modern thinking can do to boost their quality of life, in a stunning spot with breathtaking surroundings. A footpath leads to the front door, which opens into a reception hallway, with four useful storage cupboards. Immediately impressive lounge/diner, which has a range of furniture configurations and has a feature fireplace with an open coal fire. French doors open from here onto the patio in the rear garden, which is a stunning spot to spend a summer’s evening entertaining and has been used for this purpose on many an occasion. The ‘L’ shaped kitchen/diner (with underfloor heating) has been beautifully fitted to include a good range of contemporary (Cooke & Lewis) floor and wall mounted units with a striking worktop, which provides a fashionable and efficient workspace. It further benefits from a double oven, five burner LPG hob, extractor hood, dishwasher and has space for an upright fridge/freezer. There is ample room for a table and chairs for more relaxed dining and this zone is sure to be popular with all members of the family and will almost certainly become the central ‘hub’ of the home. Access is gained to a useful utility room, which is plumbed for a washing machine and has a back door opening directly into the rear garden. The sleek main bathroom (fully-tiled walls), exudes luxury and comprises of a three piece suite. The spacious master bedroom is the last word in luxury, with it’s own en-suite shower room and offers huge potential to create an independent suite or extend into the adjoining outbuilding (STPP). A further double bedroom, with space for free-standing furniture, completes the impressive ground floor accommodation. The upper accommodation comprises of thoughtfully laid out accommodation and benefits from a separate pressurised system for the hot water. The landing is bright and spacious and could easily be used as a reading/study zone. There are two, well proportioned bedrooms, both with additional space for free-standing furniture if required and where views of the Holy Isle can be enjoyed. The third bedroom also has the luxury of an en-suite shower-room and the fourth bedroom has sole use of a separate shower room. This level might suit a teenage or elderly relative requiring a level of independence and privacy. The high specifications of this family home also include double glazing and oil central heating (new boiler fitted March 2016)
Externally, there is a driveway for number of vehicles and access to an outbuilding, which has been converted into a spacious storage area. This area offers huge potential to create additional living accommodation or a garage/workshop (STPP). The front garden is well maintained and the rear garden is a place where you and your family can thrive, with thoughtful design, which provides the ideal safe and secure environment for children. Long summer nights will undoubtedly be spent on the patio, whilst enjoying the stunning backdrop.
The property has a quite unique and beautiful setting. It not only offers potential purchasers a wonderful family home, it also provides an unparalleled opportunity to create a home-based lifestyle business. The interior of the house is very adaptable and would lend itself perfectly to be used as a bed and breakfast (The B&B accommodation would comprise of 3 rooms available to let along with private quarters). The present owner has already publicised the establishment, locally, nationally and internationally at www.tighaneileanarran.co.uk. This means that anyone wishing to operate as a B&B will ‘hit the ground running’ as they will have the possibility of immediate income from their new house. Accounts are available upon request.
