The Old Smiddy, a traditional semi-detached cottage that originally would have been a simple single storey home. It has since significantly evolved into a larger property having been, firstly, developed into the roof space to add two small dormer bedrooms and then, more notably, to add a near similarly sized extension (over one and a half storey) to make the cottage the seven-apartment property it now is. The alteration was carried out by a previous owner who was seeking to create a "self-contained" wing for a relative, which can readily be seen by examining the floorplans herein. Such is the configuration of the property that our client, who has owned The Old Smiddy for some twenty years now, has rented "both units" during that time. As such, there are two separate electrical systems and two oil central heating systems (separate boilers). As a property, therefore, it could well be an opportunity for those looking to add to their existing portfolio as an additional rental property, be that long term or particularly short term (holidays, overnight), given that those walking the West Highland Way can/would come along Gartness Road and may wish to visit/stay in The Village. Drymen, of course, being within the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. It would afford a lovely village home, however, after some investment and reconfiguration, for a couple or family and enjoys a nice location to the west of The Village in a small grouping of other homes. Referring to the floorplans, one can see that the accommodation comprises:- Lounge, sitting room, two kitchens (one of which has a blue, oil fired, Aga), four bedrooms (3 single, 1 double - the double on the ground floor), study, bathroom and a shower room (about three years old). Two staircases. The house is double glazed with UPVC windows, except the windows in the lounge and bedrooms two and three which are timber framed. There is a Biodisc private drainage system (emptied/served each year by The Waterman (part of MCK Construction) of Fintry. Outside, there is a rather nice area of garden ground immediately in front of the building and there is a double width monoblock driveway for off street parking, in front of the double garage. The double garage has two doors for access and power and light installed and, to the side of the garage, a log store for the open fires in the lounge and the log burning stove in the sitting room. Drymen is a south Stirlingshire village and the easterly gateway to Loch Lomond. It has one of Scotland's oldest pubs (The Clachan), along with two hotels (The Winnock and The Buchanan Arms), some local shops and a terrific local primary school, with secondary provision at Balfron High. It is about eleven miles north of Bearsden and some sixteen miles from Glasgow's West End and City Centre.
