If you have ever leafed through a Scottish lifestyle magazine, you will know that there are certain houses that capture the imagination and simply take your breath away! 'Ard-Shonas' (translates as 'High Happiness') is that such place â 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 and elevated location with spectacular and uninterrupted views over the Kilbrannan Sound and towards the Mull of Kintyre, a unique and renovated, three bedroom, detached cottage, which has been professionally extended and sits on a plot of around 2 acres. It is now a fantastic family/holiday home and has the added bonus of a self-contained, one bedroom timber chalet in the grounds (ideal for holiday rentals) and substantial detached garaging &workshop, which has the potential to be converted to offer additional residential accommodation or a commercial enterprise (STPP). Internally, the cottage has been comprehensively renovated, redesigned and reworked in recent years and now offers adaptable family accommodation, formed over two levels, with the family room on the upper floor to fully maximise the glorious outlook! With mature trees and shrubs in the garden, red squirrels and a host of wild birds visiting the feeders, this is a secluded haven! The subjects are entered via a private entrance vestibule/sun room, which is the perfect spot to relax and watch both the ever-changing waters and the abundance of wildlife. The entire ground floor offers thoughtfully-planned and adaptable accommodation. Immediately impressive lounge/diner, which offers a range of furniture configurations and benefits from outstanding views. There is ample room for a table and chairs for more formal dining with friends and family and the log-burning stove is the real feature of the room. A useful shower-room is located off this zone. The kitchen has been fitted to include a good range of floor and wall mounted units with a striking worktop, which provides a fashionable and efficient workspace. There is an integrated double oven and hob and further space for a dishwasher and an upright fridge/freezer. There is a pantry and a porch leading to the side aspect. The bright and spacious master bedroom is the last word in luxury and has fitted wardrobes and access to an en-suite bathroom. This room also benefits from a log-burning stove and a French door opening onto the patio in the garden. From the reception hallway, the staircase takes you to the upper level, which is the perfect zone for relaxing and entertaining! The glazing in the family room makes the most of the natural light to create a modern ambience and offers spectacular views of the Kilbrannan Sound. This room could easily be used as a bedroom and has served this purpose previously. There is a further double bedroom on this level and both rooms have the use of a separate WC. Outstanding views can be enjoyed from every window on this level! The specification includes electric storage heaters and a mixture of aluminium and UPVC double glazed windows for additional peace of mind and comfort. The property is surrounded by grounds of around 2 acres, which are mainly laid to lawn, with a wide variety of mature trees. The gardens provide seasonal colour and benefit from tremendous views into the distance, which can be enjoyed from the patio or gazebo. Boundary divisions are formed by a mixture of fencing and hedging. There is a gravel driveway and ample parking for a number of vehicles. This allows access to a large double garage/workshop, which could be converted into additional accommodation (STPP). A utility barn has space for a washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge and freezer. A real bonus is the timber chalet, which benefits from a lounge, bedroom, kitchen/diner and shower room. This is perfect for a teenager's retreat or overnight accommodation for a guest or an ideal holiday-let.
