DETACHED COUNTRY HOUSE

An impressive detached country house, located in the highly desirable area of North Connel, enjoying a stunning lochside location with countryside and mountain views, set in 3.5 acres of mature, private grounds with outbuildings.

Dating from the 1930s, Ardachy House was purpose built by the previous owner and oozes an abundance of character and charm. The property, which offers a project to the successful purchaser, would suite a variety of uses from family home to business opportunity.

Located on the shores of Loch Etive, this charming property is of the Architects Boulton & Paul and dates back to 1936. Commissioned by the previous owner, Ardachy House was one of the first pre-fabricated buildings constructed in Britain, boasting an enormous twenty two rooms, split over two levels. Although in need of modernisation throughout, the property is truly representative of its era and still features several fireplaces, wooden flooring, servant bells and original internal joinery.

Ardachy House would make an exciting project for the successful purchaser and due to the flexible accommodation can provide essentially two properties under one roof, making it a large family home or indeed potential to create a unique letting business.

With stunning views spanning over the secluded grounds to Loch Etive and Mount Cruachan, the property is nestled privately in around 3.5 acres and offers several areas of interest from a small grazing field, to mature woodland, a former vegetable garden and an abundance of interesting planting, which provides colour and interest from season to season. The rare addition of loch frontage is a superb benefit to Ardachy House, with the section of beach located across from the main entrance. A courtyard of outbuildings are located to the rear of the property.
