      Situated in a wonderful, secluded location, close to the shores of Loch Melfort, East Kames offers buyers an opportunity to acquire a substantial five-bedroom bungalow with attached one-bedroom ancillary accommodation. This generously proportioned property also benefits from a large, attached garage / workshop, which lends itself perfectly to those looking to operate a business from home.

      This flexible property design allows for several configurations, offering the potential for bed and breakfast or long term lets.

      The main house is entered from a covered portico, with the entrance door leading through to a boot room before leading through to an open plan living area comprising dining room, kitchen and sitting room.

      The kitchen design features a range of farmhouse style wooden wall and floor units, complemented by a contrasting grey work top. The kitchen window perfectly frames the far reaching views across the gardens to the loch. Adjacent to the kitchen, a sizeable sitting room is flooded with natural
      daylight thanks to dual aspect windows and is warmed through by a feature multi-fuel stove, set within a tiled hearth.

      A hallway gives access to the west wing of the property, which offers accommodation by way of three bedrooms, the largest of which features an en-suite bathroom. The two remaining bedrooms share a family bathroom, also accessed from the hallway. A door to the rear of the kitchen gives access to a second sitting room, which in turn gives access to two further double bedrooms. Each of these bedrooms features an en-suite design, with both benefiting from built in wardrobe space.

      A walk-in larder is accessed from the kitchen, with a utility room accessed from the boot room along with additional built-in wardrobes, perfect for the storage of outdoor clothing.

      Linked to the main house by the covered portico, an adjoining building was originally designed for business use and features a number of secure storage rooms and a sizable garage or workshop. More recently, the space has been adapted to provide overflow accommodation. A shower room sits adjacent to the entrance of this building, with a covered walkway giving access to each of the individual rooms. The accommodation features a sitting room and bedroom, linked by a small lobby area which gives access to a galley kitchen.

      An additional detached building is located to the rear of the main house, featuring a four-room design, originally intended for use as a bunk house. This building offers scope for conversion to alternative use as required.

      External
      East Kames is accessed by a private driveway, leading to a parking area large enough to accommodate several vehicles. Mature gardens surround the property, rising to a grassy knoll at the rear of the house, offering stunning views across Loch Melfort.

      The grounds extend to an area of approximately 3 acres, giving scope to those looking to diversify into tourism activities by developing accommodation pods or chalets, subject to the necessary planning consents.

      Located to the rear of the main house, a quirky bunk house was initially designed to offer overflow accommodation but could easily be converted to provide or create a studio apartment or home office as necessary.

      It is understood that the property also owns a share of an area of the local coastline, thus protecting the area from future development. A private mooring, located in Kames Bay, is also included in the sale and the property benefits from a right of access to the shore.
