Enjoying a sublime setting in the highly popular coastal village of Lamlash, this rarely available, three-bedroom, detached villa is an exclusive residence that is perfect for families, or as a second/holiday home or holiday rental investment. The impressive property enjoys spacious accommodation and neutral interiors, incorporating lots of original features. It has multiple reception rooms, including a conservatory, and occupies an expansive plot with wraparound gardens and a private driveway. In addition, the home benefits from approved planning permission for a single-storey side extension, adding further accommodation and versatility. It also boasts stunning sea and countryside views, and a convenient location on a quiet road within walking distance of the local golf course and a short walk from the seafront.
The front door opens into a welcoming hall with under-stair storage. On the left is the living room, which is well-proportioned for lounge furniture and kept warm by a log-burning stove. It sees lots of natural light from a bay window and has a charming window seat for admiring the leafy panoramic views. From here, double doors flow into a sunny conservatory, providing another reception area for unwinding – one that has patio doors for direct access to the garden. On the opposite side of the hall is the dining and family room, which offers a flexible space for sociable meals and relaxation. It also has a cosy log-burning stove and opens out into a snug. If desired, the snug could be used as a study or doors added to transform it into a guest’s or child’s bedroom. The kitchen is next door, coming well-appointed with cabinets and excellent workspace. It has dual-aspect windows, and space for a selection of freestanding appliances (electric cooker, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher). A utility room, with further storage, workspace, and a handy WC, supplements the kitchen. Also on this floor is a large single bedroom, neighboured by a bright three-piece wet room.
From the hall, a naturally-lit staircase leads up to a timber-panelled landing with two cupboards. Two double bedrooms extend from here, both with rustic wood-panel accent walls and neutral décor. Furthermore, the two rooms enjoy spectacular far-reaching views over Lamlash, across the sea to Holy Isle. The property has electric heating, double-glazed windows in the conservatory, and triple-glazed windows throughout. It also has a new septic tank installed in 2021.
Externally, the home has a substantial plot of land, offering fantastic potential for further development (subject to consent), in addition to the approved planning permission for the single-storey extension. The plot incorporates mature wrapround gardens, with lovely views of the rolling hillsides, superb privacy, established planting, manicured lawns, and patio areas for alfresco dining. A greenhouse and a large shed, both with power, are also included in the sale. A multi-car driveway provides off-street parking.
Lamlash, Isle of Arran
This detached villa is in a very quiet location in the relaxed, coastal village of Lamlash, which lies on the eastern aspect of the Isle of Arran, a popular island off the west coast of Scotland. The village of Lamlash has two hotels (The Glenisle & Lamlash Bay Hotel), two pubs (The Pierhead Tavern (PHT) & The Drift Inn), a local church, a newsagent, a chemist, medical centre, the only hospital on the island and the refurbished Co-op. Brodick, Arran’s main town, has two larger Co-Op supermarkets and a full range of professional services. Brodick is the port from which regular sailings throughout the day, serviced by Caledonian MacBrayne, lead to the mainland at Ardrossan. Commuters and travellers now benefit from Road Equivalent Tarrif (RET) ferry fares, which are substantially lower than before. Ardrossan has a main line rail station, with trains to Glasgow that connect with the ferry times, and is approximately 30 miles from Glasgow City Centre. Prestwick International Airport is 16 miles to the south of Ardrossan, with Glasgow International Airport 24 miles east of Ardrossan. The primary school, nursery and the only High School and Gym Campus are situated within walking distance and further primary schooling is available in Corrie, Brodick and Whiting Bay. A frequent bus service runs around and across the island and, at Lochranza, there is the ferry terminus that allows quick access to the stunning West of Scotland via Claonaig. Kintyre here we come!
