SET in 28 acres within the con­ser­va­tion vil­lage of Gar­tocharn, Blair­be­ich Plan­ta­tion is a unique and im­mensely pretty Scan­di­na­vian-style coun­try house that was built in 1969 and has been with the same fam­ily since.

The house was de­signed to wrap around a small loch and it in­cludes a decked area, ter­race and pa­tio, while the grounds in­clude an­cient wood­land, pad­dock, duck pond and a sweep­ing drive­way.

The in­te­rior is ev­ery­thing a fam­ily coun­try home should be, with quiet cor­ners to es­cape to, for­mal rooms for en­ter­tain­ing, fires to dream in front of, a mez­za­nine stu­dio for pur­su­ing hob­bies, and lofty liv­ing ar­eas where the fam­ily can come to­gether – all with an em­pha­sis on crafts­man­ship.

Ex­clud­ing the green­house/ con­ser­va­tory, the ac­com­mo­da­tion spans some 3,327 sq ft to in­clude a draw­ing room with vaulted wood-burn­ing stove, din­ing room, li­brary, hall with wet room and laun­dry off, 30ft open-plan kitchen/ din­ing/fam­ily room while the sit­ting area has a wood-burn­ing stove set into a stone fire­place that in­cludes an in­door bar­be­cue. There are two en-suite be­d­rooms on the ground floor (one bath, one shower – mas­ter also with dress­ing room). The up­per level has two dou­ble be­d­rooms – one with dress­ing area, shower room and mez­za­nine room – and an ad­di­tional at­tic room.

This house con­nects with the out­side at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity with French doors in the li­brary, kitchen/fam­ily room and one ground floor bed­room. Blair­be­ich is a de­sir­able prop­erty in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs Na­tional Park and is one of the most sought af­ter ar­eas in West Dun­bar­ton­shire. Sav­ills Glas­gow of­fice seeks of­fers over £550,000.
