Offering an exciting opportunity with potential for various different uses, this bungalow in Lamlash comes with an undercroft and a detached barn, providing spacious and flexible accommodation that could be cleverly utilised to suit the new owners’ requirements. The property is set on a quiet country lane and enjoys outstanding open views of the surrounding countryside and the Benlister Hills, yet is still within easy walking distance of amenities in Lamlash.
You are welcomed into the bungalow by an inviting hall, where the tasteful interiors are immediately introduced with neutral décor and an attractively patterned carpet for optimum comfort underfoot. On your right, you step into a living room, where dual-aspect glazing allows sunny natural light to stream in throughout the day and a small bay window frames wonderful views encompassing the Benlister Hills. Across the hall in the kitchen, modern white cabinets are accompanied by warmly toned wood worktops and a Belling Range cooker is included, paired with a large splashback panel and an integrated extractor hood. The kitchen also offers plenty of space for a seated dining area and is supplemented by a pantry cupboard, external access, and a utility area which provides space for additional freestanding appliances.
The bungalow also accommodates two well-proportioned and elegantly presented double bedrooms, both offering plenty of space for freestanding furniture and including USB sockets, feature lighting, and mirrors. The larger bedroom was previously two separate bedrooms, and could easily be sub-divided again if desired. A four-piece family bathroom completes the bungalow and comprises a corner shower enclosure, a bath with a shower attachment, and a traditionally styled WC-suite. The property is kept warm by an oil-fired central heating system and benefits from double-glazed windows.
The undercroft’s design quirk is that it is situated underneath the bungalow and it offers a number of useable rooms, including a kitchenette/utility area with a sink and space for laundry appliances, an office, a cinema room, a middle room/storage area, a gym, and a three-piece shower room. The undercroft also boasts a fabulous garden room with a bar, which opens onto the garden and is sure to be a hit for parties!
NB – Undercroft is considered to be storage space/rooms only.
The detached barn offers excellent potential and versatile options for use. It is split into three sections – the top barn which comprises an entertainment/cinema room with a surround sound system included, with a sliding door leading to a useable room which has an adjoining store and shower room. There is also a middle barn and a bottom barn offering tremendous storage space. This building may have many other uses – subject to the relevant permissions being obtained. The option also exists to demolish and create a building plot (STPP).
NB – Development works have been carried out to the barn to include a sitting area, kitchen and shower room. We are advised, by the seller, no local authority consents are in place for this work and is therefore considered as storage space only.
Gardens and parking
Externally, the property is accompanied by a large deck for alfresco dining and summer barbecues, as well as beautifully maintained, predominantly lawned gardens with established shrubbery, and a fabulous garden room. Excellent off-street parking is provided by a private driveway.

This very unique bungalow is situated in a 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 newsagents, 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.
