“GLENARRY HOUSE” - A Traditional Attached Villa retaining considerable character & charm, enjoying splendid elevated views from its imposing position overlooking Lamlash Bay/Holy Isle on the charming Isle of Arran. Glenarry House will be of particular appeal to the client seeking a traditional character home which they can retreat to daily, weekly or as an occasional holiday home. The Isle of Arran is a wonderful location to live with its dramatic scenery tempting both locals and tourists to explore the peace and tranquility afforded by an island which is just less than an hour’s sailing time from Ardrossan on the South West Coast of Ayrshire, itself only a 20 minute car journey from Prestwick Airport or just over an hour from Glasgow Airport.

Glenarry House retains the well established private main gardens whilst the separately owned attached cottage (not included in sale) positioned to the side retains its own garden. The private driveway is owned by the main house with the cottage having only a right of access to their garden/driveway. Historically Glenarry House is believed to have been built around 1900 and as such it displays the character and features that will attract the purchaser seeking a period home that retains its own identity rather than a less distinctive modern style property. The excellent accommodation is formed over two levels with 6 main apartments offering considerable flexibility of use, complemented by a modern specification.

On the ground floor the accommodation can be accessed via the rear porch or the main entrance to the front which leads onto the reception hall off which an impressive bay windowed lounge with multi-fuel fire enjoys splendid views across the bay, a separate dining or family room is also situated to the front enjoying similar views to the lounge with multi-fuel fire (this room could be utilised as an additional bedroom if required). To the rear on ground floor Bedroom No 1 is located whilst the spacious dining kitchen is situated rearmost with rear entrance/exit porch off.

The character staircase from the reception hall leads to the upper hallway off which 3 bedrooms, the family bathroom (and a potential additional wc) are located. Bedrooms Nos 2 & 3 are situated to the front, both of double proportion and each enjoying superb views across the bay, Bedroom No 4 is situated to the rear whilst a most appealing and larger size bathroom serves as the family bathroom. A cupboard off the upper hallway offers the possibility of conversion to an additional wc, subject to any required local authority planning/building warrant etc.

Arriving by the regular daily ferry at Brodick, Glenarry House is approx 4.5 miles south along the coastline (approx 15 minute car journey) passing through the village of Lamlash then briefly uphill exiting the village with the entrance to Glenarry House appearing quickly on the left hand side – take care entering/exiting as this is a country road.

The present owners have been careful to ensure they have fuel flexibility therefore the specification includes oil fired central heating and cooking (gas lpg cooking also), multi-fuel fires in the lounge and dining/family room, electric “living flame” style fire in bedroom No 1. Double glazing is also featured. Services include private water, mains electricity and a private septic tank.

A privately owned driveway (right of access only for separately owned attached cottage) provides access/parking whilst also leading to the detached garage/workshop/outbuildings which offer secure parking and storage. The site of the garage/workshop was believed to have been a former cottage (the owners have an old photograph showing the cottage) therefore there may be a possibility of re-developing this area by re-building another cottage, however this is only an opinion and planning permission would have to be applied for/granted (this possibility is not reflected in any way in the marketing price or Home Report). There is driveway space for outdoor storage of dinghies etc, if required.

Glenarry House features a combination of mature sloping lawned gardens with a variety of trees/shrubs/flowers with the focal point being the central sun deck which commands superb views across Lamlash Village/Bay with the sea/coastline and Holy Isle on the horizon. The garden will keep adventurous children or the keen gardener entertained whilst Arran itself offers a wide variety of pursuits for the outdoor enthusiast, not forgetting those with aquatic/sailing interests being tempted by the surrounding coastline – which the current owners can heartily testify to…….. as their canoes have now been replaced by a boat!

Graeme Lumsden of Black Hay comments – “After almost 25 years as an Estate Agent I’ve been lucky enough to view and sell thousands of homes in thousands of different locations. In my view Glenarry House offers the careful buyer the opportunity to own a distinctive period island based home at a sensible price whether you wish to settle in by the roaring fire on the cold wet days or be tempted by outdoor pursuits on those inviting Spring/Summer days …… and surely the possibility of trying something new (paddling a canoe?) with all that water on the horizon!”
