Spacious lochside property with stunning views
Stronachlachar Lodge is an outstanding country home, set in a sought after elevated position above Loch Katrine. The property is currently run as a successful holiday let business, with an extremely high occupancy level and profit margin. The business (including the majority of the hard/soft furnishings, electrical goods, future bookings, website, Facebook page (with 4k followers) and third party booking channels) can be purchased under separate negotiation; further information can be made available upon request.
The property is approached by a sweeping driveway, which leads up to the front of the house; there is a generous parking area and gardens.
The partially glazed wooden door gives access to the entrance porch, which opens into the impressive kitchen and dining room. This room has wooden flooring, traditional decorative cornicing and a 12kw wood burning stove. The dining area which seats 12, has a large bay window overlooking the extensive upper garden. The kitchen area features a range of floor units, integrated appliances including a range cooker, there is also a central island with breakfast bar.
The kitchen accesses the main hall where there is a magnificent open staircase from when the lodge was a hotel, with decorative wooden banisters and handrail leading to the upper floors.
From the hallway is the drawing room, which has exceptional views through large bay windows, overlooking the loch and Factors Island. The room has wooden flooring, an 8kw wood burning stove with decorative mantel and ornate cornicing with decorative ceiling plasterwork. Also located off the main hall is the games room which has wooden flooring, an open fire (not currently in use) and a door leading to the front of the house. Finally there is a WC at this level.
On the first floor there is a galleried landing overlooking the hall. Off here are three good sized bedrooms, all of which have stunning views. The family bathroom includes a WC, free-standing bath, wash hand basin and a separate shower cubicle. There is also another shower room on this floor.
The staircase continues from the first floor landing to the top floor accommodation. A large window overlooks the staircase and provides an abundance of natural light. Situated off the second floor landing are a further three bedrooms. One of the bedrooms benefits from access to a balcony which looks out onto the loch and another is en-suite. One of the rooms is currently used as a storeroom, but has the potential to be a seventh bedroom, subject to Regulations. The second floor accommodation is completed by a shower room with WC, wash hand basin and shower cubicle.
The house is approached by a driveway which passes through the garden to the front of the house. On one side of the driveway is a large flat area laid to grass. On the other side is a wooded area, which is perfect for exploring. From the large parking area at the front, a set of steps lead down to the lower lochside garden. The garden is largely laid to lawn but also features two patio areas next to the loch. Stone steps lead down to the loch at the front and to the side is a large wooden non prescribed jetty.
