A Georgian hunting lodge with 50 acres in an elevated setting within the national park with stunning views over Loch Lomond and the hills beyond. Additional 3 bedroom cottage and bothy.
Inversnaid Lodge is a former Georgian hunting lodge on the eastern side of Loch Lomond and situated in a stunning elevated setting maximising the incredible views from the semi-rural hamlet of Inversnaid. Built in 1790, the property bears all the hallmarks of the era and is constructed traditionally of stone under a pitched slate roof.
Internally the property boasts nine bedrooms, all with en suite shower rooms offering huge potential for commercial use. Part of the property remains on business rates having previously been used as a retreat for budding photographers. All the bedrooms benefit from a view, be it loch facing or over the hills behind. High ceilings, decorative cornices and generous sash and case windows are just a few of the features and ensure the property remains bright and airy.
The principal reception rooms are all of a generous size and magnificent fireplaces, cornices, bay windows and stunning views are evident in all of them. The kitchen was fitted some time ago and there are parts of the house that would benefit from a schedule of modernisation while remaining fully functional. The property has a very natural flow with the main reception rooms filtering from a central hallway and likewise the bedrooms from central landings.
In addition to the principal house there is a three bedroom cottage adjoining the former stable block with its own kitchen and sitting room giving rise to further rental opportunities or indeed multi-generational living.
The former commercial elements include a photographic studio and dark room in the main house and there is ample opportunity and scope for a new custodian to evolve the property and make their own mark on this stunning home. Marketed for the first time in over 35 years, this is a very special opportunity.
While the internal features are impressive, it is the easy access to the gardens and grounds with magnificent views that create the overall charm at Inversnaid Lodge. Woodland walks and elevated positions provide a variety of views both of Loch Lomond the immediate rural surroundings. Occupying a site of over 50 acres, of which much is designated agricultural land, Inversnaid has incredible versatility either as a commercial venture or as a superb family home, as was originally intended.
The land and gardens surrounding Inversnaid Lodge support a tremendous variety of wildlife. Badgers, pine martens, foxes and red squirrels are daily garden visitors, encouraged by the present owners. Roe and red deer are regularly seen and the occasional otter ventures up the stream taking a shortcut from Loch Lomond to Loch Arklet.
The land has a rich diversity of trees, grasses and wildflowers, while the Woodland Garden harbours an abundance of birdlife, both resident and summer visitors. Herons, ducks and geese frequent the ponds. Golden eagle, osprey, black-throated diver and black grouse can often be seen and breed in the vicinity.
The property is adjacent to the RSPB Inversnaid Nature Reserve, parts of which are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
