*** 3 Bedroom Detached Cottage PLUS Separate Commercial Building/serviced building plot with planning permission for 1.5 storey house ***
Limehouseltd are delighted to offer to the market this truly unique property in the hamlet of Ruskie, nestled on the edge of the stunning Trossachs National Park in Scotland, within easy reach of Loch Lomond, Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The accommodation on offer comprises of a 3 bedroom detached cottage and a separate split level workshop building with stunning 1st floor office all situated on one large plot. There is an option to purchase the land/small field adjacent and planning permission has been sought and recently approved to replace the commercial building with a 1.5 storey detached house giving any purchaser further options on use.
The cottage has a well established walled garden which surrounds the entire property and offers privacy and security and provides a fabulous added outdoor space. On entering the property, the bright sunroom leads through to a spacious kitchen/dining area with stunning open views and plenty of storage, this leads through a hallway to a well sized storage/utility space and the bathroom which benefits from a corner bath and shower. The living area to the front of the property has a cosy feel with real wood flooring and a multi fuel stove set in a stunning fireplace. The master bedroom is bright and airy with windows overlooking the garden, and there are a further 2 double bedrooms on the opposite side of the living area. The cottage has beautiful real wood flooring or tiles throughout, benefits from double glazing, oil central heating and has been recently decorated giving it a modern, clean and bright feel. The current owner who has lived there for 21 years had plans drawn some time ago to extend the living space into the attic which could be an option for any purchaser.
The commercial building and offices (approx 14 x 8m footprint) are currently operated as a workshop/car sales business by the owner with the added benefit of 3 phase power.
It does not form part of the valuation within the residential home report, but is sold with the cottage. The 2 x 1st floor offices have superb panoramic views across to Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and the Trossachs that really have to be seen to be believed. The workshop and offices offer the potential for a wide range of uses and provide a business space completely separate but close to your home which is highly unusual in the area. The area also has planning permission recently approved to build a 1.5 storey house to replace the workshop and offices. Serviced plots are rare in this part of the country and this offers a unique opportunity for purchasers.
