• Fine post war Country Home with approx. 13.5 acres. • Cattermuir Lodge - the five-bed principal residence. • Cattermuir Cottage - a four bed detached bungalow. • Leisure wing including swimming pool. • Within The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. • Delightful setting yet 17 miles from Glasgow, 65 miles to Edinburgh. Cattermuir Lodge dates from 1968, with latter extension, and is an impressive country residence supported by an additional detached bungalow, Cattermuir Cottage. Formerly the home of Sir Hugh fraser (of The House of Fraser stores) it has s wonderful situation with some outstanding views, over fields, towards the Loch Lomond basin and the dramatic enveloping peaks of the Arrochar Alps and Ben Lomond. The main house is a sizeable home of five bedrooms with the bungalow providing four further bedrooms. The Cottage post dates The Lodge and is a highly valuable addition having been used for hosting friends and family with providing a potential revenue stream by way of letting income (long term let, holiday rental, Airbnb). Cattermuir lies just to the west of Croftamie Village and is only a couple of miles south of Drymen. It is surrounded by rolling Stirlingshire countryside and hills. It is approached via its long private, and gated, drive off a quiet country road. It sits amidst formal, mainly to grass, gardens with an all-weather tennis court. To the southwest is its main grounds of policy woodland. In all about 13.5 acres. As clients will see from the imagery, together with the floorplans, the property has some notable spaces, not least the grand reception hall - really quite a feature with its sweeping staircase and galleried upper hall. It has three fine public rooms including a large drawing room and panelled dining room. A Clive Christian kitchen is the heart of the home and to support the five bedrooms are three bathrooms, the largest of which is en suite to a substantial master bedroom with double aspects. The leisure wing, incorporating a large pool area, is a great facility to have and one that has provided huge enjoyment to our client's family over the eighteen years of his ownership. In addition to the pool there is gym room, sauna, and steam room. Continuing the entertaining theme, the attic space has been converted, and accessed via a spiral staircase, to provide a games room and a large cinema room. To the rear of the house is a charming timber guest "cabin" with studio area - (sitting area/bed/kitchenette, en suite shower) with a patio area providing a stunning view of the hills. Situation Local shops and services can be found in the nearby villages of Drymen, Killearn and Balfron with major shopping facilities in the town of Balloch (railway station) and the suburbs of Milngavie and Bearsden (railway stations). Local schooling is the charming village primary in Drymen with secondary at the admired Balfron High. Glasgow has several of Scotland's top performing private schools. For leisure pursuits Drymen has two golf courses, Strathendrick and the more notable Buchanan Castle with more at Balfrom and particularly Milngavie and Bearsden. The world-renowned Loch Lomond Golf Club is but a 30-minute drive. Loch Lomond itself is easily reached, to its southern, western, and eastern shores. Services Both properties are on oil central heating, with an LPG cylinder to the range cooker, mains water and electricity. Drainage is private. Windows are, in the main, PVCu double glazed, others are timber. There are smoke alarms, a security alarm system and CCTV. A rare opportunity to acquire a small country estate, in a picturesque setting, just to the north of Glasgow.
