5 Bed Detached House  For Sale  Isle of Arran  Ayrshire  KA27  - £385,000

If you have ever leafed through a design magazine, you will know that there are certain homes that capture the imagination and just take your breath away. The Anchorage is one of those - beautifully positioned, but at the same time, a fun, atmospheric and functional place in which you can live life to the full with your friends and family. 'The Anchorage' enjoys a prime location on the shore, allowing awesome views over Lamlash Bay and the Holy Isle. The Anchorage was built around the turn of the century and is typically Scottish in both appearance and construction. The four bedroom house has retained much of its original character and charm and has been recently re-decorated, but still retains many original features. It is now a super family home and has the added bonus of a self-contained, appended, one bedroom cottage (ideal for holiday rentals and with a separate title) to the rear, which would provide additional and comfortable living accommodation and further benefits from planning permission to alter and extend.

This property is as unique as it is beautiful! The traditional building offers fantastic and flexible accommodation and only a complete viewing will convey its true quality and huge potential to add additional value. The easily managed grounds benefit from a secluded patio and a lawned area. There is an extensive, gravelled (shared) driveway, which gives access to off-road parking for numerous vehicles. A large wash/utility house offers a variety of uses and could easily be sub-divided between both properties.

The subjects are entered via a bright private entrance vestibule. A further internal door leads through to a large welcoming reception hallway, with the staircase off to the upper landing and access to the principle apartments. There is a useful understairs cloakroom/WC. Immediately impressive is the lounge, which is of palatial proportions with high ceilings and the potential for a range of furniture configurations. The bay window to the front aspect offers tremendous views over the bay. The feature fireplace is the other key feature of the room. The formal dining room has a picture window to the front aspect and has similar views to that of the lounge. Access is gained from here to the kitchen, which has been fitted to include a good range of contemporary floor and wall mounted units, with a striking timber work surface, which provides a fashionable and efficient workspace. It further benefits from an integrated dishwasher and extractor hood. There is also space for a freestanding cooker and an upright fridge/freezer. A door opens from here to the side aspect.

The staircase leads to first floor level revealing a bright and airy landing, four substantial bedrooms, an en-suite shower-room and a family bathroom. The master bedroom offers tremendous views over Lamlash bay and gives access to the en-suite shower-room. There are three, further well-proportioned bedrooms and all offer ample space for additional free standing furniture. The separate bathroom creates the perfect ambience in which to unwind. Tremendous views of the surrounding area can be enjoyed at this level.

The specification includes electric heating and mostly double glazed windows for additional peace of mind and comfort.

Attached to the main house, you enter the independent one bedroom lodge, which is perfect for holiday lets or for an elderly relative or teenager requiring a level of independence. We are advised that demand would be very high for a holiday let.
