Christmas at Stronvar

Christmas at Stronvar
Westerwood is hosting a Christmas open house at its picturesque Stronvar development in Balquhidder in the heart of Rob Roy country.

Potential buyers are being invited to visit the stylish showhome from 12-4pm on Saturday 2nd of December and find out more about this development nestled on the shores of Loch Voil, within Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.

They will be treated to mulled wine and mince pies and will have a chance to appreciate the beauty of one of the most striking of private and unspoilt locations, with its views over the loch and the surrounding hills.

The development, features only two properties and eight plots. Each home comes with shared ownership of approximately ten acres of land which includes a woodland and a protected Site of Special Scientific Interest which provides access to the loch and will be managed by Scottish Woodlands.

Stronvar is also part of the River Teith Special Area of Conservation which aims to protect the unique ecology of the surrounding landscape.

Designed by local architects, Westerwood has also employed a local family builder to construct two new homes to ensure the properties are worthy of and sympathetic to the development’s magical surroundings.

However, the option to purchase a plot only and appoint a different building team is also available, with planning permission already secured.

According to Westerwood, Stronvar is at its most striking at this time of the year when snow is on the hills and frost on the branches. Although it is hard to imagine a more tranquil place it is just over an hour’s drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Westerwood’s sales consultants will be on hand to explain the different options on offer at the event – whether buyers want to purchase a plot of their own, would prefer Westerwood to build a home for them or are interested in an existing plot.

The properties at Stronvar offer a choice of individually designed three to five bedroom homes, accessed by a private road, which will be upgraded, through a woodland area.

The ground floor of the showhome features an open plan entrance hall and dining room with feature multi fuel stove, a breakfasting kitchen with granite worktop leading to a separate sun room, a living room, utility room, shower room, and the option of a family room or a fourth bedroom.

The upper floor includes a master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite shower room, two double bedrooms, a family bathroom and storeroom.

An integral double garage is also included. As befitting a property of this stature the specification offers an exceptional quality throughout, from the oak internal doors and ironmongery, to the choice of kitchen worktops by Jackton Moor and the Siemens appliances.

Although Stronvar offers one of Scotland’s most peaceful locations it is still within easy access of a thriving village community with trout fishing, horse riding and golf close to your doorstep.

The four star rated Monachyle Mhor hotel is nearby along with the popular town of Callander. Gleneagles is under an hour’s drive with Oban and the West Coast just over an hour and a half away.

Prices at Stronvar (FK19 8PB) start from £140,000 for a serviced plot or £575,000 for a ready built property available for immediate occupation. Brochures are available on request and appointments to visit the showhome can be arranged by contacting Westerwood Sales Office at Walker Group on 01506 413101.
