Low Cattadale is situated in a stunning and tranquil location - made famous by Paul McCartney's iconic songs - “Mull of Kintyre”, and “The Long and Winding Road”. It lies four miles from Southend village and Dunaverty Golf Course - and eight miles from Campbeltown. This spacious and charming former farmhouse, which until recently operated as a successful Bed and Breakfast, has been extensively renovated by the current owners to offer very comfortable and flexible accommodation over two floors.
Low Cattadale, (described in detail by Lachlan Young - the former Director of Education for Perth and Kinross) in his extensive book “Mull of Kintyre to Moosburg” relating to his childhood upbringing at Low Cattadale in the 1900's) - has recently been extensively renovated and transformed into a splendid family home by the current owners - thus now offering comfortable and flexible accommodation – Upgrades include a modern central heating system, new double glazed windows/external doors throughout and a modern 26' fitted kitchen. The original features, including an 18th century lounge inglenook fireplace and three hidden doorways were discovered during the renovations. The Stone Outbuildings attached to the house, have all been totally re-roofed and renovated to a high standard and include a small dairy (now a storeroom), a large byre (now housing productive raised borders and fruit bushes), a large barn (now double glazed and garaging two cars) and a delightful stable with a hay loft. The property has the benefit of a ground floor bedroom, currently used as a study, with interconnecting door to the adjacent bathroom. The remaining bedrooms are accessed by two separate staircases offering the potential for either to be used as before as Bed and Breakfast accommodation.
Externally : To the front : A colourful front lawned garden bordered by dry stone wall : To the nearside - a walled mediterranean styled sunny garden with a large waterlily pond : At the far side of the property - a majestic lawned woodland garden with stunning azaela and rhododendrun shrubs. To the rear of the property is a small, picturesque burn which runs beneath the former dairy. The large barn, currently used as a garage which sits at right angles to the property, offers scope for development in a number of ways including as additional accommodation subject to any planning requirements. The long byre which is currently used for raised fruit beds and herbs, also offers ample scope for conversion.
