With panoramic sea views, this three-bedroom terraced cottage has one of the best locations in the heart of Lamlash village, positioned within easy walking distance of all amenities and the beach. Built in the late nineteenth century and designed by Sir John James Burnet, the A-listed home also forms part of a row of significant properties, which are of major architectural importance having survived over a hundred years with a minimum of changes. The home is currently run as a lucrative holiday let with a weekly rental fee of £535 during the high season. Buyers can continue running the property as a holiday let or set it up as an AirBnB or a forever home. There is also opportunity to add value as it requires moderate upgrades, such as updating the heating or by opening the kitchen and dining room out into the third bedroom (subject to consent).
Inside, you are welcomed by a hall that leads into the living room. Fronted by a southeast-facing bay window, this charming reception area affords spectacular views over a vast public green and across the sea to Holy Isle – a stunning vista that must be seen to be truly appreciated. The room is decorated in crisp white for easy styling and it is laid with a hardwood floor. It also has a focal-point fireplace for cosy evenings. Next door is a good-size dining room which mirrors the living area’s aesthetic, creating a delightful setting for sociable meals. The kitchen is adjacent, openly accessed via an archway. It has a well-appointed range of cream-coloured cabinets and complementary worktops. There is also space for freestanding appliances. The ground floor is completed by a versatile bedroom and a three-piece bathroom with an overhead shower. On the first floor, there are two additional bedrooms, which are lightly decorated and softly carpeted for comfort. The main bedroom has a generous built-in storage cupboard as well. The property features electric heating and partial timber casement double glazing.
Outside, the home has a covered courtyard for drying clothes and storing bikes. Parking in the area is on street and unrestricted.
NB: All furnishings and white goods are available by separate negotiation.
Lamlash, Isle of Arran
Hamilton Terrace sits within the village of Lamlash, in the middle of the eastern side of the beautiful Isle of Arran, Scotland’s most southerly and one of the most accessible islands. 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 newsagents, a chemist, medical centre, the only hospital on the island and the Co-op.
Approximately 60 miles round, Arran has fine sandy beaches, excellent walking and rambling and both sea and trout fishing. Tourist attractions include the Arran Aromatics centre and shop, the Arran Heritage Museum, the Lochranza Distillery and Brodick Castle. There are seven golf courses on the island, including nearby Lamlash Golf Club. The island is often referred to as ‘Scotland in miniature’, as it is divided into highland and lowland areas by the Highland Boundary Fault. It’s a popular destination for geologists, due to the substantial volcanic activity around 16 million years ago in the Tertiary period. There are many stone circles and standing stones dating from Neolithic times, including those on Machrie Moor and the Giants’ Graves above Whiting Bay.
The Primary school, nursery and the only High School and Gym Campus are situated within a very short level walk 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!
