The room is completed by the addition of a stunning feature wood burning stove, providing warmth and comfort in equal measure. Two sets of French doors lead out to an elevated decking area, providing more space to relax and unwind.

The remainder of the ground floor comprises of two large double bedrooms - each with glazed doors opening to the outside area - a large family bathroom, well equipped utility room also housing the heating boiler and a sizable larder room.

Externally, Kilmun Farmhouse is accessed via a sweeping drive which opens into convenient parking at the front of the house. An impressive area of lawn is home to several young fruit trees and offers a place to sit and admire the stunning scenery.
