Description

Kilchrenan is a small, tranquil village on the north side of Loch Awe, reached via a seven mile long section of the B845 road through Glen Nant from the A85 at Taynuilt. The village has a primary school and church, village hall, two excellent loch-side hotels nearby which are noted for the quality of their cuisine and a stylish recently re- opened inn. Loch Awe is Scotland’s longest fresh water loch and one of its most picturesque with wooded shores and numerous small islands which can be explored by boat. It is also noted for the quality of its game fishing. The entire area is one of great natural beauty and provides almost unlimited scope for outdoor sporting and leisure pursuits. The nearby village of Taynuilt offers a good range of amenities with the principal West Highland town of Oban providing a more comprehensive selection of shops, leisure facilities and professional services.

Pleasantly situated and enjoying fine open southerly views towards Loch Awe and the surrounding countryside at the front and to Ben Cruachan at the rear, Drimbuie is an elegant traditional house dating from circa 1895, substantially of stone construction under a slate roof which, although in need of a degree of modernization, offers great potential to be upgraded into a fine family home on the fringe of this sought after west highland lochside village. The generously proportioned and versatile accommodation is double glazed and benefits from oil fired central heating. Particular features are the architect designed ‘pavillion style’ conservatory, the spacious drawing room, the impressive wooden staircase, period fireplaces and original cornices and roses. The amenity is enhanced by the mature garden and grounds extending to about one and a half acres, affording an excellent degree of privacy and protecting the loch view, with garages, former stable and greenhouse.
