About this property

  • Eilean Fraoich is a fine contemporary villa built in 1999. It is designed to take full advantage of wonderful views and is characterised by the double height drawing room with mezzanine level and large picture windows on the front elevation. The property is formed over three levels and offers flexible accommodation of some 3276 sq. ft.

    The main living accommodation is situated on the first floor and includes a drawing room with double height ceiling, multi-fuel stove and large picture windows with views over Loch Etive and Connel Bridge, a family room with dining area and access to the rear garden, contemporary dining kitchen with larder, utility room, two double bedrooms and a shower room. On the second floor is the master suite comprising a large double bedroom, en suite bathroom and dressing room. There is also a mezzanine dining area, overlooking the drawing room with a study off.

    There is separate access to the ground floor accommodation which would lend itself to being a self contained flat for teenagers, elderly relatives or as a possible holiday let. There is a sitting room, newly fitted kitchen, two double bedrooms with en suite shower rooms and doors leading onto a patio area, a WC and access to the garage.

    The property sits in substantial gardens of almost half an acre. To the front of the house is a lawned area surrounded by well stocked borders. A stone chipped driveway wraps itself around the property, offering access to the attached double garage and ample space for off-street parking. To the rear the lawns are more extensive and offer an ideal space for families and entertaining.
