“Woodend Cottage” is a delightful period home that dates back to the late 19th Century and sits in a small and sleepy hamlet, close to the western shore of Loch Goil, amidst beautiful garden grounds with spectacular and rugged scenery forming a breathtaking backdrop.
Picture perfect, the cottage offers a great opportunity for those looking for a peaceful place to live or potentially as a holiday home or as currently used, a profitable and well established holiday let.
The house itself is finished in painted render, the windows have been replaced with high performance uPVC double glazed units and the property displays an attractive pitched tiled roof with dormer windows.
On entering through a set of twin timber gates, the driveway has a hardcore base and provides parking for numerous cars leading down the side of the house. To the front of the property there is a large area of lawn with a variety of plants and shrubs featuring, all enclosed by timber fencing. To the rear, there is a large expanse of lawn stretching away from the house, all bounded by mature trees, bushes and fencing and stone walls. The raised timber decked terrace can be accessed from the lounge or from the garden and it is a sheltered place to sit and enjoy the views.
Internally, the property is presented in immaculate condition throughout, with a huge amount of character and charm. Features include solid oak doors, an exposed stone wall in the lounge with a woodburning stove at the focal point and with the property boasting a modern specification that includes a beautifully refitted dining sized kitchen, contemporary bathroom downstairs along with an additional wc downstairs and a further wc upstairs. On the ground floor, and on entering from the front, the hallway gives access to the bathroom at the front of the house and it features a fully tiled and enclosed shower cubicle, separate bath, wc and wash hand basin. The lounge is a comfortable room with a window to the front and French doors opening out onto the decked terrace. To the focal point, as mentioned, there is a wood burning stove and to one side of this a shelved display cabinet. The kitchen is beautifully proportioned and comes complete with extensive wall mounted and counter level units and there is enough space for a dining table and chairs. At the far end of the kitchen is a built-in cupboard and access through to a utility room/wc which has space for a washing machine, and with a wash hand basin and wc. The kitchen is fitted with a range of appliances that include an inbuilt oven, hob, extractor hood, fridge/freezer and dishwasher and there is a window to the front providing natural light.
Moving onto the upstairs accommodation, the staircase turns and leads to a landing area where there is a built-in cupboard and a wc compartment off. The master bedroom is a comfortable double room with windows to the front and to the rear, taking in lovely views and the second bedroom is also a double room which is currently laid out as a twin room with window to the front and a double glazed “Velux” window again with great views to the rear. The property is warmed by a system of oil fired central heating and the boiler is located in the kitchen.
Carrick Castle is located only four to five miles from the popular town of Lochgoilhead and whilst the property enjoys a very rural setting, it is still only seventy five minutes or so from Glasgow International Airport. The property itself sits at the foot of the surrounding hills, just away from the western shore of Loch Goil and it is accessed via a private lane that serves only a handful of other properties. The nearby village of Lochgoilhead provides a general store, doctor's surgery, church, hotel, local police station as well as a bowling club and an outdoor centre. It is also home to the Drimsynie Hotel and holiday complex which has a heated swimming pool, recreational facilities and a nine hole gold course. There is great sailing on Loch Goil. EPC - Band E
