Property Description

A truly inspired, architecturally designed detached house located in the popular Stirlingshire village of Balfron and with simply breathtaking views towards the Campsie Fells. The property, originally constructed in 2005, is presented to market in fabulous condition and benefits from a very flexible layout across eight principal apartments and a generous floor space. A must see for those looking for something completely unique in aesthetic and design, but also a home that more than delivers in a practical sense.

The property is of a distinctive Dutch aesthetic, with Canadian red cedar wood shakes providing its façade. The building is formed of three principal levels and has been designed/constructed to be as efficient/sustainable as feasibly possible – with significant thermal benefits provided by the Scandinavian timber framing, heat recovery system, under floor heating and state-of-the-art triple glazed window units. Great thought and consideration has gone towards the fully realising the opportunity afforded by the size and topography of the plot, with the various internal/external vantage points cleverly placed to fully enjoy the outstanding vista on offer.

Internally, the specification is exacting, with stunning engineered oak flooring found across much of the accommodation, high-quality fixtures and fittings, and tasteful modern décor employed to great effect across the accommodation. Key architectural features include the expansive open-plan/full height living areas, roof light and striking picture window that beautifully frames the Campsie Hills. Our suite of HDR images, 360° immersive tour, HD video and floorplan will allow for thorough desktop appraisal of the property, with a summary of the accommodation to be found as follows:-
