Isla Shaw of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said:
“This is an absolutely beautiful property offering superb and extensive accommodation, all presented in immaculate condition, with well-maintained gardens and over three acres of land. The setting of the property couldn’t be better – tucked away in a private position and yet enjoying beautiful views towards Ben Lomond and close to the popular villages of Gartmore and Aberfoyle. The scenery of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park nearby is rightly celebrated and the purchaser will enjoy a wonderful rural lifestyle within easy reach of Stirling and Glasgow.”
Gartloaning was re-built between 2000 and 2003 after a fire, yet it retains the character and feel of the original farmhouse which was built some 150 years ago. Set out over two floors, the accommodation includes kitchen, sitting room, dining room, utility room, living room, sun room/family lounge and six bedrooms. The master bedroom has its own en-suite and there are two further bathrooms and a sauna.
Adjoining the main house is a garage/workshop and a large stable with an upstairs room which is currently used for storage. These would be suitable for the creation of an annex, subject to the necessary planning consents.
Gartloaning is surrounded by lawns and herbaceous borders and has a wooden sun deck, large patio and vegetable patch. There is also an area of land extending to about 3.5 acres.
The property is in a secluded position in the Queen Elizabeth Forest, with far reaching views towards Ben Lomond and Ben Ledi. Gartmore is two miles distant; Glasgow is 24.5 miles and Stirling 17 miles.
The surrounding hills, the Trossachs and Campsie Fells are extremely popular with hill walkers and climbers and the region also offers excellent opportunities for mountain biking, sailing, pony trekking, shooting and fishing.
Gartloaning is for sale through Galbraith for offers over £825,000.
