Escape to the Country

Escape to the Country
If the arrival of autumn has you hankering for a change and a desire to escape to the country then a hidden gem in the heart of Rob Roy country in Balqhuidder may just be the perfect location.

Developed by Westerwood, Stronvar nestles on the shores of Loch Voil, within the Loch Lomond & Trossach’s National Park and has the most striking of private and unspoilt locations for a new home, with views over the loch and the surrounding hills, offering beauty, peace and tranquillity.

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.

This weekend, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th October, from 12 noon until 4.00pm, Westerwood is hosting an open day with the opportunity to view the showhome first hand and explore the surrounding location.

Sandy Casey, Westerwood said, “Strovar really is an exceptional location and offers the best of both worlds with a fantastic rural location but with all the mod cons of a new build house. It is a location where you can completely escape to but be within Edinburgh or Glasgow within an hour’s drive.”

Designed by local architects, Stronvar features two new homes for sale however, the option to purchase a plot only and appoint a different building team is also available, with planning permission already secured.

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

The ground floor of the completed properties feature 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.
