• An exceptional Country Home, circa 1935. • One of Scotland's few thatched properties. • Grounds of 2.75 acres or thereby, stunning views to Loch Lomond. • Five bedrooms, approximately 3,572ft2 (332m2). • On private road just to north of village. • Impressive kitchen, bathroom, and en-suite. Only three owners have been fortunate to call Caoldarach home since it was built in 1935, our clients since 1992. Situated high above Drymen village, on a private road (known as Coldrach Farm Road). It sits amidst formal and wooded grounds of approximately 2.75 acres and provides fine south-westwards view over the Strathendrick Valley and a wonderful westward aspect to Loch Lomond. It is a property full of period character and is one of Scotland's few thatched residences. Our clients had the house, and the garage outbuilding, re-thatched in 2007 with premium grade Water Reed Thatch (thatch lifespan - 40 to 50 years), the quality of craftsmanship evident and impressive. The house has been extended to the rear providing a two-storey wing, the design integrating seamlessly with the original house. Caoldarach is a family home for a generation, and it would be hard to find another offering such character and location. The village, with its excellent little Primary School and local shops, is just a short walk down Old Gartmore Road. The city of Glasgow is within 17 miles, Stirling 22 miles and Edinburgh just over an hour away, 60 miles. The house sits proudly amidst its grounds with the immediate formal gardens lying to lawn, including a pond. In the springtime the grounds are a mass of daffodils and the rhododendrons, which flank the driveway, provide a blaze of colour in Spring and early Summer. Adjacent to all of this is an expanse of woodland, all providing a wonderland for children to explore and play, all the while with farmland to front and rear and with those stunning views towards Loch Lomond. The subjects retain much of the original features including oak floors, oak ceiling beams, Suffolk latch doors and there are seven fireplaces, all with open fires. Our clients commissioned Murray & Murray to design the traditional handmade bespoke dining kitchen and Victor Paris were engaged to install the two very impressive bathrooms, both contemporary in design. Windows are double glazed, central heating is oil fired (two inter-connected Worcester Bosch Boilers, serviced early 2021) with the property on private drainage, mains electricity and pumped mains water. The extension has provided the facility, if so required, for a relative/guest wing (see floor plan) - providing Lounge, Kitchen (current utility room) with an upstairs bedroom or two. Overall, the accommodation is summarised as follows. GROUND FLOOR Entrance Vestibule; Reception Hall; Cloakroom with WC compartment; bay windowed Lounge with double aspect; bay window Dining Room with double aspect; large Family Room with an area for informal dining and with a wood burner stove at the focal point; a little Playroom with French door off the family room (would make a nice little office); an inner hallway with pantry store (WHB) leads to the kitchen; country style pine Dining Kitchen with granite worktops and a green Aga. At the dining area there are two Welsh dressers (also by Murray & Murray); rear Hallway, with a top quality fitted bespoke handmade Larder, leads to the rear hall and back door; large Utility/Laundry Room (fitted as a kitchen); Informal Lounge with French door and windows to rear garden.
