Stunning contemporary and eco-friendly lochside home
Tigh Na Ceardaich is a truly exceptional single storey contemporary home facing southwest in a prime elevated waterside position within its own private gardens enjoying an incredible outlook over Loch Riddon and as far as the Isle of Bute and Isle of Arran. In the last few years the owners have adapted and renovated the house with future proofing/environmental considerations including underfloor heating using local wood via the wood burning system, two independent log burners, marmoleum flooring made from natural raw materials and windows updated with high performance double and triple glazing allowing solar gain into the property. The property features light and flexible mostly open plan living space beginning with an L-shaped reception hallway. From here the open plan sitting room with full height picture windows takes full advantage of the magnificent open aspects; echoed in the open plan living / dining room where again the spectacular views of the loch are framed to maximum effect. Double glazed doors lead out to the decked terrace. The fitted L-shaped kitchen/breakfasting room is in a stylish, minimalist design with a wide range of freestanding base mounted units (allowing for fantastic flexibility of layout) and integrated hob and ovens. A lovely, light family room sits to the side, making the space as a whole ideal for easy sociable living.
The principal bedroom is very well proportioned with sleek en suite shower room, and there are two further double bedrooms (one with an en suite bathroom), along with an additional shower room.
Externally, there is a studio/workshop which could also be utilised as a garage. To the rear of the studio workshop, there is a plant room. Additional outbuildings include a workshop with storage/wood store. The grounds surrounding Tigh Na Ceardaich have been lovingly maintained and offer excellent privacy with raised beds, and a number of mature apple and other fruit trees. The garden is well stocked with paths cut through meadow areas. The sellers have not used any chemicals in their ten years of ownership and the garden is rich in seasonal wild garlic and chanterelle mushrooms. The location is also home to a wide variety of birds and wildlife.
