Meadow Cottage is a traditional semi-detached cottage (built in the mid-late 1800s) in Pirnmill on the Isle of Arran, enjoying three bedrooms, two reception rooms, an attractive kitchen, and two bathrooms (plus a WC), as well as front and rear gardens, a large shed/workshop, and a private driveway. The cottage also comes with a modern, attached self-catering cottage (Poppies Self-Catering Cottage) with one bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, and a wet room, plus a garden and a private driveway. Both cottages enjoy a fantastic open outlook over the waters of the Kilbrannan Sound to the eastern side of Kintyre.
Meadow Cottage’s front door opens into a practical entrance porch, leading through to a large dining hallway, offering a welcoming introduction to the home with neutral décor, charming ceiling beams, and warm wood flooring. The area offers plenty of space for a seated dining area and affords access to a utility room (with space for a washing machine and dryer) with an adjoining WC. Conveniently connected to the dining hall is the kitchen, which was fitted in 2022 with attractive, Shaker-inspired cabinets, gleaming quartz worktops, and a number of integrated appliances which were new in January 2022. These comprise an oven, a combination microwave, an induction hob, an extractor hood, a fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher. The kitchen is supplemented by a larder/pantry and additional built-in storage, and features French doors opening onto the rear garden. Returning back through the hall, you reach a living room, echoing the dining hall in terms of décor, flooring, and ceiling beams. The reception room offers plenty of space for furniture, all arranged around a homely Montrose log-burner, nestled under a wood mantel.
The property’s principal bedroom can be found on the ground floor – a neutrally decorated, carpeted spacious double with an en-suite shower room. The first floor is home to the remaining two bedrooms and a bathroom, accessed via a landing with a handy study area – perfect for homeworkers! The bedrooms on this floor are also doubles and take full advantage of the home’s waterfront location with wonderful far-reaching views. The bathroom comprises a bath with an overhead shower and a shower tap attachment, and a traditionally styled WC-suite. The home is kept warm by an electric heating system and the windows are all double glazed.
Externally, the cottage is accompanied by a private garden area with a large shed/workshop and a summerhouse, as well as private, off-street parking for two vehicles.
NB: The wardrobe in downstairs bedroom will remain.
