5th of December 2011
Victorian country house on Loch Goil for sale
Swallowbank, Lochgoilhead, Argyll, PA24 8AH
Fixed price £320,000

Lochgoilhead House With Boathouse And Shore Access
Swallowbank is a charming Victorian country house in the attractive Argyllshire village of Lochgoilhead, situated in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

Lochgoilhead has a village shop with post office, bowling club, primary school, local hotels with bar and restaurant facilities, fishing and sailing on the loch, good hill walking and wildlife watching. On the opposite side of the loch is Drimsynie holiday village with amenities including a 9 hole golf course, ice rink, swimming pool and further leisure amenities. Glasgow, with all facilities is just 50 minutes away.

Swallowbank is set in 1.4 acres of attractive mature grounds in a prime loch side setting and is believed to date from circa 1870.

Formed over three levels with three public rooms and four bedrooms in the main part of the house with many character features including traditional fireplaces (the living room open fire still used on a daily basis), original plasterwork and panelled doors. The lower ground floor level could be kept as part of the house or could be converted to a self contained flat / holiday let subject to the necessary consents.

One of the principal features of the property is an impressive veranda / decked area, accessed from the living room and an ideal position to sit and enjoy the fabulous views onto the loch and hills beyond.

The loch can also be enjoyed from close at hand too as there is direct access to the water from the bottom of the garden. There is even a small boat house situated within the gardens. Moorings are available in the loch subject to an annual payment to the Crown Estate which offers the keen yachtsman the ideal opportunity to enjoy messing around on the water on his very own doorstep.
