Media Release: CKD Galbraith offer Edwardian villa with loch views on Arran

CKD Galbraith and Arran Estate Agents are marketing a most impressive and well appointed Edwardian House enjoying a superb waterside setting, lying in the heart of Lochranza on the north-eastern coast of the Isle of Arran.

Benvaren is a superb family residence dating back to 1911. With delightful gardens, the villa has superb views set amid spectacular scenery. The accommodation includes four bedrooms, three reception rooms, kitchen, utility rooms, two bathrooms and two shower rooms. The beautiful wood panelling in the reception hall, together with feature fireplaces, cornicing and picture rails all show a style typical of Edwardian houses.

A former laundry and toilet, together with former maid’s room have planning consent to convert to a one bedroom annex.

The mature and well kept gardens, which are a particular feature of the property, provide a wonderful backdrop slopping gently down towards the shore of the loch.

The village of Lochranza is truly stunning, lying snuggled in a sheltered valley along the edge of the loch, against an imposing backdrop of the surrounding hills. The nearby 17th century ruins of Lochranza Castle were once a royal hunting lodge and an earlier castle on the same site is believed to be where Robert Bruce stayed on his arrival from Ireland in 1306.

Often referred to as ‘Scotland in Miniature’, the Isle of Arran has the best of all the many characteristics of Scotland. From a rugged and mountainous interior in the north, green rolling hills and woodland in the south, the beautiful coastline with pretty villages and sandy bays benefits from the warm climate of The Gulf Stream. A ferry service from Lochranza provides a Summer link to the Kintyre peninsula, known as Arran’s ‘back door’, whilst a further regular service to the mainland operates from nearby Brodick.

Benvaren is probably one of the hidden gems of Lochranza and it is rare for such a property to come on the market.

Offers Over £485,000 are being sought for Benvaren. For further information please contact the selling agents.
