TIGH NA STRUITH
Tigh Na Struith is a modern ONE AND A HALF STOREY, 4 BEDROOM DETACHED property set in the tranquil Kilmichael Glen area of Mid-Argyll approximately 4 miles North of Lochgilphead. This family home is finished to the highest, exacting standards and no expense has been spared in both presenting and maintaining it. Generous accommodation over 2 levels consists of spacious , open entrance hall with central staircase, very large lounge with fabulous fireplace and wood burning stove and no less than 6 windows allowing excellent natural light, a sun room (currently utilised as a large office/study) with windows to 3 aspects and patio doors to an area of decking outside, 2 double bedrooms (one to the front, one to the rear), large dining room, again with patio doors to another, separate decking area overlooking the River, family bathroom with separate shower cubicle and finally, on the ground floor, a generously proportioned country style kitchen with dining area to the rear, granite worktops and traditional range cooker. Upstairs you are welcomed by a bright landing with space for a chair to take advantage of the views across the river and Glen beyond. Either side of this you will find 2 grand double bedrooms, both of which are complimented by en-suite shower rooms, with bedroom 1 benefiting from built in wardrobe storage along the full gable wall. This property is in truly walk-in condition and has recently been given a decorative refresh. The bathroom and shower rooms are fitted with top quality suites and the kitchen has been upgraded to a similar standard. The workmanship throughout is first class. The ability to bring the outside inside with the patio doors in the dining room and the Sun room offers an extra dimension on the West Coast of Scotland without the need (or space) for a conservatory. The current owners have placed their own stamp on this property and the balance of living accommodation, bedrooms and outside space (described on Page 4) is just about perfect. Interest in this property is likely to be very high given its location and level of finish and, as such, we would recommend contacting our Lochgilphead office to speak with our Estate Agent, Gavin Brown for further information and to arrange a suitable time to be shown around this wonderful home.
The surrounding area is a haven for the outdoor enthusiast with opportunities for sailors, golfers, walkers, cyclists, bird watchers and anglers to name but a few. There are ferry terminals to Mull, Colonsay, Tiree, Arran, Portavadie, Islay & Jura and Gigha within an hours drive of the village. Lochgilphead, 4 miles to the South, is the main administrative town in the area and has a larger range of amenities including supermarket, swimming pool, hospital, sports centre and a range of smaller, independent shops.
The surroundings at Tigh Na Struith are every bit as spectacular as the house itself. The River Add, a famous salmon river, winds its way by the rear of the property. Although there are no fishing rights with the property (we would have to add a few thousand to the asking price) it is owned and maintained by the local Kirnan Estate. The current owners have, with the Estate owner’s permission, been able to fish the river on occasion. The grounds extend to approximately half an acre with a mix of lawn, flower beds and utility areas. The driveway will comfortably hold 4 or 5 cars without issue and the large shed at the extreme end of the drive provides storage and workshop facilities alike. The exterior of the property has seen the same attention to detail applied as the interior. The rose beds at the West boundary were dug out and the soil replaced (over 40 tons) and then another 2 tons of top soil to finish. The decking areas at the rear, overlooking the river, are augmented by a Canadian Timber hot tub. This is the perfect finishing touch to this fabulous home and is no doubt the ideal way to take in the late evening sunshine with a glass of something bubbly.
