About this property

  • LOT 1: GLENMORE TOWER HOUSE

    Built in 2015 by TSL contractors, the Tower House is a magnificent, newly built Scots Baronial style tower house surrounded by approximately 107.5 acres which also includes land leading to the shore front of Loch Melford. TSL contractors were commissioned to build The Tower House.

    The accommodation on the ground floor is accessed through a heavy oak arched door leading to the entrance hall with boot room and utility room off. The boot room opens into internal access to the triple sized garage with remote control up and over doors. The ground floor also includes a beautiful open plan sitting room complete with wood burning stove and a bespoke German designed kitchen with circular central island, Corian worktops and a wide range of integral appliances. These include wine fridges and two Wolf ovens. The kitchen has a tiled floor and underfloor heating. Also on the ground floor is the gym suite, which includes a gym studio, sauna, shower room and cloakroom.

    The whole first floor of the Tower House is home to an impressive 11 metre long Great Hall, which has engineered oak flooring and underfloor heating. The Great Hall consists of a large beamed circular dining room capable of accommodating a 12 seater table, and a large sitting area with a magnificent stone fireplace and multi fuel stove. The sitting area opens onto a superb castellated terrace with incredible views.
    On the second floor the stunning master bedroom is set within the turret and has beautiful open aspects.

Local information

  • The Tower House is located in an area of dramatic natural scenic beauty at Loch Melfort, about 0.9 miles south of the village of Kilmelford on Scotland's west coast. The house sits in a commanding hillside position on the south bank of the loch and from its vantage point boasts stunning views out over Loch Melfort and the surrounding mountains and glens.
  • Kilmelford has a local post office, shop and provisions store which caters for everyday requirements. The district is well served by a fine range of local country pubs, restaurants and hotels, all of which usually sell local seafood and seasonal produce. Kilmelford Haven Marina is only 2.4 miles from The Tower House.
  • Arduaine Garden, 3 miles to the south of The Tower House, is famous in the district, originally conceived by J. Arthur Campbell who also built the awardwinning Loch Melfort Hotel. The gardens are extensive but retain the intimacy of a private garden.
  • The main west coast town of Oban is about 15 miles to the north and Lochgilphead is about 22 miles to the south; both offer a much wider range of shopping, professional and leisure services. A local bus service runs between Oban and Lochgilphead and Oban has a mainline railway station with a service connecting to Glasgow.
  • The waters off the west coast of Scotland are famed for challenging sailing and stunning scenery. The sheltered sea loch of Loch Melfort is well known among the sailing community and has always drawn yachts and boating craft to its pretty and safe anchorage.
  • The surrounding countryside provides an abundance of outdoor and sporting activities including hill walking and mountain biking. Oban, Lochgilphead and Ardfern provide sea fishing, wildlife boat trips plus sailing access to the west coast.
