Gorno Grove Cottage is a charming rural property, which enjoys lovely views out over the surrounding countryside to the Lomond Hills in the distance. The house was built in the 1880s and has more recently been extended and upgraded and now offers a comfortable family house extending to about 174 sqm (1,875 sqft). The house forms a "T" shape and is largely constructed of stone under a series of slate roofs and offers three public areas and three spacious bedrooms. Of particular note is the sitting room, which has a lovely open outlook over to the Lomond Hills as well as an exposed stone chimney breast with a log fired stove. Adjacent to the sitting room is an open plan dining room, which also shares the log burning stove with the sitting room. The house also offers a generous kitchen/breakfast room with a utility room off as well as three bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom.
