A fantastic home set in 36 acres with private shore access on the banks of West Loch Tarbert.
Rhu Cottage is a charming stone built house in a private, yet accessible location on the banks of West Loch Tarbert. The property is surrounded by around 36.5 acres of private gardens, paddocks and woodland with direct access to the water.
Set over two floors, the house has over 2,300 sq ft of accommodation. An entrance vestibule opens into a welcoming reception hall which leads to the principal reception rooms.
The sitting room enjoys an aspect to the front with an open fire and doors leading into the garden room. The U shaped garden room is one of the finest in the property with a vaulted ceiling and windows on three sides offering a panoramic view over the gardens and loch beyond. There is a door to the rear. The kitchen has a dual aspect, with a range of wall and base units, fitted appliances and space for a range cooker and a dining table and chairs. There is a formal dining room which can be accessed off the kitchen or hall, a useful utility room and a downstairs shower room.
There are three double bedrooms, with fitted wardrobes, and a bathroom with separate shower cubicle on the first floor. Two of the rooms enjoy fantastic loch views.
A stone built barn with attached wood store and workshop sit adjacent to the property and offer the potential to convert or develop, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. There is a modern built boat house which extends to approximately 32 x 22 ft and a timber built summerhouse with decking area.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The property is set in approximately 36.5 acres of private grounds. A wooden gate leads to a gravel driveway at the front of the property which provides ample parking for a number of cars. Gardens surround the property on three sides and there is a pond to the rear. There is a large paddock and areas of woodland, with lovely walks along the banks of the loch towards Tarbert.
SHORE ACCESS AND RIGHTS
Perhaps the most desirable asset is the shore access along the banks of West Loch Tarbert. There is a private slipway to launch a boat and a varied coastline in which to enjoy the joys and challenges of west coast sailing . The property also benefits from boating and fishing rights on the loch.
Our clients have enjoyed access to two moorings in front of the property. Fresh licences can be applied for from The Crown Estate.
