Fantastic property with versatile accommodation on the beautiful island of Arran.
Butt Lodge occupies a prime position in the valley which is reached by a private road that leads from the main road to the property.
The property was built in 1896 in a traditional style and has since been sensitively refurbished and reconfigured by the current owners to be used as a successful B&B. Set over two floors the interior layout is extremely versatile, it works well in its current format or it could be utilised as a spacious family home.
Entered from the front entrance vestibule and opening in to a welcoming reception hallway and garden room with staircase and main living accommodation off. The principal reception rooms are to the front of the property and take full advantage of the views on offer. The drawing room benefits from a feature fireplace and dual aspect views with two picture windows to the side looking down the valley and a large bay window to the front looking into the valley itself. The dining room provides ample space for a large dining table, with views of the valley and focal fireplace.
The large family kitchen is well equipped with a range of wall and base units, a royal blue Aga, breakfast bar, plenty of space for a dining table and chairs and a flagstone floor. The office, a large utility room, laundry room and larder are located off the kitchen. Secondary access to the garden via the utility.
The ground floor accommodation is completed by a fabulously spacious en suite bedroom with wall to wall built in wardrobes, beautiful hardwood flooring and glass patio doors leading to the garden. The wonderful en suite bathroom has a shower and freestanding bath.
The first floor comprises of seven spacious double bedrooms all with en suite shower rooms. The master suite has a spiral staircase leading to a mezzanine level with port hole window looking over the valley and one of the bedrooms has a separate sitting area.
