DESCRIPTION Muiryhill Bothy is a charming and thoughtful conversion of an original farm bothy. Now forming a two bedroomed dwelling, the house is modern, light-filled and welcoming. The good sized sitting room benefits from patio doors which give stunning views over the garden and the rolling farmland beyond. The kitchen is fitted with elegant floor and wall units, and has plenty of room for a table and chairs, ideal for family mealtimes as well as cosy dinners with friends. The main bedroom has an en-suite shower room, and the second bedroom is served by the main bathroom. The current owner has improved the insulation and placed radiators in more practical locations within the bedrooms. The electrics have been upgraded, and an EV charging point installed. Muiryhill Bothy is an ideal rural escape which lends itself to both permanent living and second/holiday home use. With the motorway a mere 20 minutes’ drive, and the centre of Glasgow only 57 miles you can go from breakfast to boardroom in just over an hour.ACCOMMODATION Ground Floor: Entrance Hall. Kitchen. Sitting Room. Bedroom 1 with En-Suite Shower Room. Bedroom 2. Bathroom.GARDEN The extensive garden has been planted with laurels to the front boundary to give colour and form as well as privacy from passing cars. A galvanised metal gate opens to a generous parking area which has plenty of scope for erecting a detached garage. The current owner did have planning permission for a garage which has since lapsed, but could in theory be reinstated subject to a fresh application by a buyer. An EV charging point by the front door means use of electric vehicles is catered for.The garden is grassed to the sides and rear, with paths leading around. To one side is a timber studio which can be used for a variety of purposes. The grass to the other side is planted with hundreds of daffodils, giving a spectacular spring display. Evergreens screen the rear of the house from traffic approaching uphill. The garden has huge potential for further planting and creation of outside entertaining areas, but can equally remain as an easily maintained space with spectacular views.
