Rural Idyll for Sale

Rural Idyll for Sale
When it comes to laid-back luxury, househunters would be hard pushed to find a more impressive property than the new showhome which has just been released for sale at Stronvar in Balquhidder in the heart of Rob Roy country.

Nestled on the shores of Loch Voil, within the Loch Lomond & Trossach’s National Park, the showhome is a truly exceptional rural property with incredible views of the one of the most picturesque areas of Scotland.

Priced at £575,000, this country house has an open plan entrance hall and charming dining room with an elaborate vintage-style glass drop chandelier.

The bright and airy lounge is flooded with light from the double French doors with views out to the garden and rugged landscape beyond, and a feature multi-fuel stove perfect for chilly evenings.

Walnut and cream kitchen units work beautifully in the breakfasting kitchen which features Silestone worktops and leads to a separate sun room, a 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 with a rustic hand-carved bed with pink and white bedlinen and two double bedrooms decorated in creams and soft blues. 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. All flooring, lighting and fixtures are included in the price. Furniture and soft furnishings can be purchased separately.

Sandy Casey of Westerwood said: “This house has such a serene feel about it and a real sense of light and space with the glass panels framing the views beautifully. However it isn’t designed just to be admired, it is made to be lived in with practical tile floors and lots of storage space for fishing rods, wellingtons, walking boots and all the other essentials for country life.

“The open plan layout downstairs is ideal for family gatherings or parties for local villagers and there is plenty of room to run a small business from home or to set up an artist’s studio or writer’s retreat.”

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.

The showhome is just one of a small number of properties which will be built at Stronvar. Prices for the plots start from £140,000 and there is one other home, priced at £575,000.

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.

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.
