Sitting within approximately two acres of mature garden, Mid Lochhead Cottage is just a mile outside the much sought after village of Lochwinnoch. It is very peacefully situated well off the A760 Kilbirnie road and the cycle track passes nearby allowing easy access to the village by bike or on foot. The cottage enjoys open views of Barr Loch, and its stunning surroundings also include a complete walled garden and orchard.
The cottage was traditionally built in the early 1990s by the present owner. With its slate roof and stone facade, the property accommodation is all on the one level with a fixed staircase to an incredible 56’ long attic ideal for storage. An entrance vestibule leads to a broad reception hallway and the accommodation which comprises; three double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms, a rear facing lounge with access to a large conservatory, a separate dining room/fourth bedroom and a breakfast kitchen. The kitchen and the lounge both have doors opening to a terrace which takes full advantage of the open vistas. All the rooms to the rear of the house as well as the conservatory benefit from spectacular views over the garden and towards Barr Loch. Completing the accommodation is a shower room. The property has been built with tradition in mind with high ceilings and large rooms, but the present owner also invested in extensive underfloor, in-wall and ceiling insulation making the property warm and welcoming. A new owner may decide that some modernising would further enhance the cottage, but it has been a happy family home for the last 30 years and is very much able to be lived in whilst that decision is being made.
Undoubtedly the gardens and aspects of the cottage are one of its most attractive features. From the rear of the property there are lawn gardens stretching to the fields beyond with a small stream to the east. A fabulous walled garden accessed via a wrought iron gate is mainly lawn with mature plants, colourful shrubs and trees. Beyond this is an orchard again bordering fields that stretch to Barr Loch. The garden shed has a log burner as well as ample storage for garden equipment. There is also a separate greenhouse.
The property is accessed via a shared road into the grounds onto a stone chipped driveway with ample parking for several cars.
The property specification includes double glazing, security alarm system, mains gas, mains water and a septic tank.
The village of Lochwinnoch has a wide range of facilities including primary schooling, local shops and recreational pursuits including water sports at Castle Semple Loch and an 18-hole golf course. There is a railway station with rail links to Glasgow Central and the Clyde Coast and good arterial road links towards Glasgow International Airport, Braehead Shopping Centre and Glasgow City Centre
