**Closing date - Tuesday 20 April at 12noon** An idyllic loch side home
Rudh na Magach is a pretty traditional stone cottage dating from around 1824 which has been sympathetically extended over the years to form the five bedroom house that exists today. The house is full of character and charm. The entrance to the house is via a bright sun room which is glazed on all sides and is a fabulous place to sit and watch the scenery. The remainder of the house is characterised by a mixture of old stone walls, painted timber cladding, exposed beams, astragal style windows, deep window sills and original pine lining. The house has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. While the dining room and sitting room are intimate and cosy, the kitchen has a vaulted ceiling with a galleried hayloft at one end. It has a Rangemaster cooker and space for a family sized dining table. From the utility room there is a fabulous westerly view over the loch to a spectacular skyline of hill tops in the distance. A small staircase leads up from the utility room to the hayloft and there is also access to a boot room and backdoor.
The principal bedroom is in a more recent extension at the eastern end of the house where there is also a shower room and a staircase to two double bedrooms above. Two further double bedrooms are accessed from the original staircase at the centre of the house. Below these rooms on the ground floor is a bathroom and a WC.
The studio is situated adjacent to the main house. With a wood burning stove, skylight windows, light and power, it is a versatile room and could be adapted for a number of uses. An attractive verandah at the front is useful for storing dried wood and for sitting out and enjoying the view.
The garage is attached to the Studio. It has lots of space to store a vehicle, and garden machinery as well as having a good area for workshop space.
The 6 year old Perkins Generator (P116-S Diesel) has an inverter and battery bank of 12 batteries. It is stored in a dedicated shed behind the garage.
The ground at Rudh na Magach extends to approximately 1.3 acres. The property is approached by a short private driveway leading from the A86 to a parking area beside the garage. The grounds are mainly grass which meets the lochside. Two statuesque beech trees are situated at the front of the house and a number of young conifers grow elsewhere in the grounds. A stone wall shelters an outdoor seating area on the west side of the property. Wild flowers grow in the shingle in the spring and the summer and the property is a haven for wildlife.
