If you have ever leafed through a Scottish design magazine, you will know that there are certain houses that capture the imagination and take your breath away! ‘The Bothy’ is such a place – beautiful, stylish, impressive, but at the same time, a fun and functional place in which to live life to the full and to enjoy with friends and family. Beautifully positioned in a tranquil location with spectacular views over the countryside and the Firth of Clyde, a unique and renovated two-bedroom, farm steading, which has been formed by converting the byre in the quiet hamlet of Shannochie, on the outskirts of Kilmory, and still retains the external stone walls of the original steading. ‘The Bothy’ forms part of the development of the ‘Torr Nan Uain’ farmhouse with outbuildings, which have been professionally renovated to create an attractive development of just four residential properties.
The first floor offers thoughtfully-planned accommodation. The two, double bedrooms both have plenty of space for additional free-standing furniture if required and offer fantastic sea and countryside views to both the front and rear. Both of these rooms share the useful shower-room. For additional comfort, the property benefits from oil-fired central heating and double glazing. Drainage is to a shared septic tank located nearby.
The property has been very well upgraded both internally and externally, to create fantastic and flexible accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify. When the builders re-developed (circa 2007) this family/holiday home, they used luxurious, high-quality fittings to create a house that is the last word in sophistication and refined taste. Great emphasis has been placed on the creation of easily managed and free-flowing space on a bright and fresh layout. The property sits at the rear of the Torr Nan Uain courtyard and there is ample space for private and communal parking. The Bothy has an enclosed level garden with a patio area, raised decking and lawns with flower borders. There is also a large timber garden shed for additional storage.
In more detail, the accommodation comprises A welcoming hallway, with a useful under-stairs storage cupboard. Immediately impressive lounge, which has a range of furniture configurations and a picture window to the front aspect, flooding the room with natural light. Access can be gained from here into the sun-room, which is a great room to just relax and chill and offers superb views towards the Firth of Clyde. French doors open from here onto the patio and the raised section of decking in the rear garden - which is a stunning spot to spend a summer’s evening entertaining and has been used for this purpose on many an occasion. The ‘hub’ of the home is the magnificent kitchen/diner, which has been beautifully fitted to include a good range of floor and wall mounted units with a striking worktop, providing a fashionable and efficient workspace. It further benefits from an integrated oven, hob, extractor fan, dishwasher, fridge and freezer - making this the ideal kitchen for an aspiring chef! There is ample room within this zone for a dining table for more informal social gatherings or for simply grabbing a coffee or reading the Sunday papers! There is also room for an upright fridge/freezer. A door opens from here into the inner hallway, allowing access to the utility room, which is plumbed for a washing machine and has space for a tumble dryer. A personal door opens into the garden. A pull-down ladder allows access into the loft space offering invaluable storage. The family bathroom is also located off the inner hallway and comprises a three-piece suite, with an electric shower over the bath.
