Low Cattadale is situated in a stunning and very tranquil location four miles north of the delightful village of Southend on the Kintyre Peninsula. 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.
Described in a book about Scottish farming life at the turn of the century: Mull of Kintyre to Moosburg by Lachlan Young who grew up in the house, Low Cattadale has been transformed into a delightful family home by the current owners but offers scope for further enhancement due to the extensive outbuildings. These include a former dairy, large byre, barn/garage and stables. The property benefits from oil fired central heating, new windows and doors, a large, fully fitted dining kitchen and games room. There are also many original features including an 18th century fireplace in the main reception room and original staircase. 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 there is a delightful and very pretty garden with dry stone walls and includes a large goldfish pond with water lilies as well as a woodland garden with an abundance of flowers and mature trees. 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.
