Heron Cottage is a substantial detached property set in an idyllic lochside location.
The original property built in the 1970s houses the main lounge, kitchen, two bedrooms and stunning conservatory. The property was extended in 2000 with the addition of a two bedroom self contained ‘annex’ linked by the utility room. In recent times, this has been run as a successful holiday let.
In addition to this, a cabin has been built to the side of the property which offers a further successful holiday letting unit.
Heron Cottage offers the potential for a large family home, or a home with the added benefit of two holiday letting units.
The property has ample off road parking and a large garden extending to 0.5 acre or thereby (to be confirmed by Title Deed) which slopes gently to the shore.
Heron Cottage also has a mooring in the loch which will come with the property.
