Cash Purchase. No Home Report • Victorian Lodge House requiring complete renovation. • Planning consent to develop into unique three-bedroom home. • Cash purchase only. • Approval also to demolish, if preferred. • Glorious setting amidst grounds of some 0.35 acres. • By Barnhill House and the magnificent Overtoun House. • Views to Loch Bowie. • Dramatic Lang Craigs as a backdrop. A fantastic opportunity presents for those clients seeking to create their dream home. Barnhill Lodge, in Milton Brae, is a stone Victorian Lodge House (believed to date between 1860 and 1888) set amidst grounds of some 0.35 acres in a beautiful rural setting to the west Lang Craigs - a 619-acre area of outstanding beauty and part of The Woodland Trust Group and with Barnhill House and the Scots Baronial Mansion of Overtoun House as neighbours. It has a delightful southerly aspect over horse's fields to the waters of Loch Bowie. Planning consent was granted in February 2022 (Planning Ref: DC21/320/FUL, with West Dunbartonshire Council) for the full renovation of the house into a very individual three bedroomed property, with three bathroom/shower rooms and that all important open plan kitchen/family/dining room. The subjects will fall over three levels. All details can be found on West Dunbartonshire Council's Planning Portal using the above reference. Architectural drawings, structural engineering drawings and drainage drawings are available to the purchaser. In addition, a Topographical Survey, and an SAP Calculation (Standard Assessment Procedure - for energy efficiency) has been done. Electricity has been re-connected to the house (just requires the appointment of a supplier). Water is currently a private supply although a connection could be made to the main supply nearby at the entrance gates to Overtoun House. Waste drainage would need to be a private system. Planning consent is also granted for a single detached garage to the north of the house and a car port to the south of the plot. Our clients have ''prepped' the house and the land ready for work to commence but regrettably, for them, a job relocation prompts the sale. On the site they have erected a modern 20' x 12' Summer House (double glazed, insulated, electrical connection). Note: The property has lain empty for over 10 years and thus Empty Property VAT Discount would be able to be reclaimed by the appointed building contractor (https\\ With the property in a state of disrepair interested parties should note that the subjects are uninhabitable and therefore un-mortgageable. A purchase would therefore only be on a cash basis. No Home Report is available nor required. Consent has also been granted by the Council to demolish the house under Demolition Warrant Reference: BW/21/061 (granted 20 April 2021). Whilst no approval has been applied for, our clients have also made an informal approach to the Planning Department with regards to building a new house on the site, should Barnhill Lodge be demolished. Early indicators, we are informed, would appear to be positive. Clients should make their own enquiries in this regard should this be of interest. No guarantees are hereby given.
