Unique Homes – A Magnificent Property in Stirling
Clyde Property Bearsden is delighted to present to the market this beautiful and historic home comprising 14 apartments in an idyllic countryside setting. The early part of the home was built in the early 1800s as the Lodge House of Auchineden House and has since been remodelled to include an annexe that would lend itself to a holiday let or Airbnb.
North Lodge, Auchineden, Blanefield, Stirlingshire
Offers Over £675,000
North Lodge sits proudly amidst expansive lawned garden grounds of approximately two acres (subject to verification of the Title Plans) and affords high levels of privacy including bordering woodland which, is frequented by a variety of wildlife. An elevated terrace runs the entire length of the property providing an ideal platform from which to enjoy the panoramic views and the current owners have also added an impressive balcony off the master bedroom bordered by glass on three sides, to maximise the outlooks.
The addition of impressive extensions sympathetically tie in with the external sandstone, glass elevations, curved glass coach house windows and a pitched, slat roof. The versatile layout includes a self-contained annexe which at one point, was utilised to run a successful business and could also offer the potential as holiday let Air BnB accommodation or simply be incorporated into the overall accommodation which could effectively offer anything from four to seven bedrooms.
North Lodge is located approximately four miles from the adjoining villages of Strathblane and Blanefield offering a range of local services, shops, pubs and playpark as does the village of Killearn, approximately seven miles away and includes the catchment of the excellent Killearn Primary School which subsequently feeds into Balfron High School. The area is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is home to a number of renowned walking routes including “The Queens View”, just beyond the Auchineden Estate, which is renowned for its uninterrupted views taking in Loch Lomond. A number of local golf courses include Hilton Park, Buchanan Castle, Milngavie and Clober and nearby cycle tracks and the West Highland Way link to the suburbs of Milngavie and Bearsden, approximately six miles to the south and each offer a train station with a frequent service to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
