Glenarry Cottage is a unique, two-bedroom, appended house that has a stunning location in Lamlash village, enjoying an elevated position with spectacular sea views to Holy Isle. The property presents an exciting modernisation opportunity offering huge potential to add significant value, as well as the chance to develop a dream home in a truly idyllic location – one that is perfect as a holiday residence and for the holiday/AirBnB rental market. The level of improvement required would suit builders, investors, and anyone seeking a development project. For example, the conservatory would benefit from replacement and the ground-floor would ideally be reconfigured by an architect to optimise the space, subject to planning permissions (STPP).
Inside Glenarry Cottage, the main entrance opens into the conservatory, which overlooks the rear garden. From here, you pass through the house to a central hall that leads to the living room: a well-proportioned reception area that is equipped with a built-in cupboard. A dining room, with a feature fireplace, provides a second reception room. It shares an open-plan footprint with a fitted kitchen, which in turn connects to the conservatory. The kitchen is supplemented by a utility room that could be opened out into the dining area or transformed into a porch/front entrance (STPP). The ground floor is completed by a three-piece shower room. Upstairs, a naturally-lit landing (with storage) leads to the two double bedrooms. The property has electric storage heaters and double-glazed windows.
In addition to a front garden, there is a large rear garden with panoramic sea views. Plus, there is a versatile store and private parking for one vehicle, which has potential to be extended via the removal of the store (STTP).
Lamlash, Isle of Arran
This appended cottage is situated in an elevated 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 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 the village 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!
