Superb lochside retreat with breathtaking views.
Aros is a beautiful, traditional family home which once served as the local school to children in the village. Constructed in traditional methods with stone and a slate roof the property underwent extensive refurbishment prior to the current owner's occupancy with the installation of the ground source heat pump and has had further improvements since, primarily the addition of the garage with the studio flat above.
Internally the property has a beautifully balanced layout with accommodation spread over two floors with an open plan dining and reception area with a wood burning stove at one end and expansive windows providing generous levels of natural light and maximising the stunning views across Loch Ard. The modern kitchen was created to a bespoke design and has a granite work surface, wooden cabinets finished in solid oak and an electric Rangemaster. The whole of the ground floor is underfloor heated via the ground source heat pump. A formal drawing room with doors opening to the rear garden as well as expansive loch facing windows completes the reception areas in the main dwelling. A downstairs bedroom and bathroom ensure that Aros is a property that can cater for all ages as well as providing stunning guest accommodation. The first floor is accessed via a timber staircase with glazed balustrade and is formed of three bedrooms, a family bathroom and a principal suite complete with en suite shower room, walk in wardrobe and a balcony with the most incredible view over to Ben Lomond and across the gardens.
The gardens take on a naturally beautiful appearance carved into the rocky surface and are laid mostly to lawn with various areas of patio immediately surrounding the house providing wonderful vantage points for outdoor dining and enjoying the view.
In addition to the main house there is a double garage with two electric up and over doors. Above the garage sits a studio apartment with wonderful loch views, private kitchenette and shower room. This would serve as a great rental income generator or indeed a superb home office.

The location of this superbly refurbished family home is truly awe-inspiring, with the loch and mountain views taking centre stage, while the house itself is both characterful and comfortable with the added benefit of a self contained apartment for rentals or home working.Cameron Ewer
