Braevallich House is a substantial and attractive two storey dwelling with a white timber clad exterior under a contrasting mansard slate roof. Its private, elevated position affords it spectacular panoramic views over Loch Awe to the surrounding countryside. On a clear day Ben Cruachan, some 30 miles to the north-east, can be seen. The property's grounds extend to 10¼ acres or thereby, incorporating an established, colourful
garden plus significant amenity ground and woodland as well as a strip of shoreline offering direct slipway access to the loch. Fishing and sporting rights are also included. There are a number of useful outbuildings which provide excellent facilities for gardening, storage and outdoor pursuits.
The accommodation is well laid out over two floors and the property benefits from oil-fired central heating and double glazing throughout. The spacious and flexible rooms are well presented but also offer plenty of development potential and
scope for general modernisation and upgrading.
Entry is into a welcoming vestibule with a handy adjacent cloak room and WC. The remainder of the ground floor accommodation is accessed off a light and airy hallway. The lounge is a spacious, dual-aspect room with bay windows to the front and side offering beautiful loch and garden views.
The open stone fireplace with timber mantlepiece provides a charming focal point and adds to the room's cosy feel. The neighbouring dining room also enjoys pleasant loch views and offers ample space for a sizeable dining table, making it an
ideal space for enjoying a family meal or entertaining guests. To the other side of the lounge sits the study which offers an alternative outlook down the loch as well as an internal window into the adjoining conservatory, ensuring plenty of natural light flows in. It also boasts an open fireplace and could easily be adapted into an additional bedroom if desired.
The property's large farmhouse-style kitchen would benefit from some modernisation in places but offers plentiful storage options, including a deep under-stair cupboard, linen closet and walk-in pantry. There is a central island in which sits a
stainless steel sink unit with cupboard storage below. Direct access to the rear garden is offered via an external door from the utility area and also through the adjacent tile-floored conservatory. The modern conservatory has floor-to-ceiling PVC windows and twin sets of french doors, one of which leads out onto a paved external seating area.
An open, carpeted staircase to the upper floor opens onto a spacious landing, off which the property's four bedrooms and family bathroom are located. Bedrooms 1 and 2 offer en-suite facilities through a shared Jack & Jill bathroom and three of
the four bedrooms benefit from their own private wash hand basins. The bedrooms are all well-proportioned doubles with appealing views and plentiful storage options. Additional storage is available in a partially floored attic space which
extends the length of the property.
The subjects are situated in a prime, elevated position on the southern shores of Loch Awe and benefit from riparian rights upon it. Loch Awe is one of Scotland's largest andmost picturesque fresh water lochs, renowned for its salmon
and trout fishing as well as recreational boating and wildlife watching. The loch and its scenic surroundings attract numerous visitors to the area each year, with walkers and climbers in particular drawn to the Cruachan and Ben Lui mountain ranges.
The property is situated approximately 7 miles away from the village of Ford which lies at the southern end of Loch Awe, some 5 miles north of the historic village of Kilmartin. Kilmartin supports a primary school, church, local shop with post office, a popular hotel serving bar meals and an award-winning museum with restaurant.
Lochgilphead is the principal local centre and further amenities are available in both Dalmally and Oban. There is also a railway station at Dalmally on the popular Glasgow to Oban
