Old Byre Cottage And Balmichael Vistor Centre, Shiskine, Blackwaterfoot, Arran, KA27 8DT

2 bedroom cottage for sale

Property Details

Balmichael Visitor Centre sits in the Shiskine Valley with beautiful rural views across the valley to the sea, taking in Kintyre and Kilbrannan Sound as well as the northern mountains of Arran. The Centre is situated in a charming traditional courtyard of various stone buildings which, including the car park, covers approximately seven acres. It has been improved in recent times with the refurbishment of the Coffee Shop, addition of a 42 seat cinema and extensive additions to the Family Fun Park including Europe's largest bouncy pillows over 20 meters long and a 54ft high pole jump.  There are currently 7 retail units within the courtyard, the large Coffee Shop (a former watermill with the very large wheel in situ), cinema, ice rink and go-kart track.  There is also a large store/workshop and garage.

There is ample space for expansion for other activities including planning permission in place for a large 13m high aerial assault/high ropes course with 200m long zip slides.

The very large Old Brye Cottage was converted from one of these former outbuildings in recent times.  It currently has two large bedrooms but has scope if required for a third or fourth.  It has a very large traditional, open plan kitchen with dining space, patio doors to the extensive deck, utility room, two bathrooms plus a master bedroom with additional dressing room and ensuite.  The living room is of equally large proportions with open fire and lovely private rural and sea views over the deck area.  There is also a good sized garden area with parking spaces.  Full central heating, modern insulation and double glazing allows for comfortable living giving the benefit of a traditional character property but converted to meet modern building standards.  The cottage has recently been renovated, painted inside and out also new carpet has been fitted in the bedrooms and hallway.

An alternative use for the site and its traditional courtyard buildings, is their conversion to around six self-contained cottages.  These could be sold as residential houses or kept to be rented to from a holiday village type setting.  A preplanning application has already been made and supported by the council in principle.  This is, in addition to the already converted onsite owner's cottage, could form an excellent development opportunity. 

Included in the sale is a two bedroom static caravan with living room, bathroom and kitche.

The surrounding land is very well situated to create further tourist accommodation such as chalets, camping pods or camping site.  This would create an attractive holiday village in a peaceful setting with open countryside and sea views.  Situated in a great location on the main bus route between Brodick and Blackwaterfoot.

An option for a part exchange may be available.
