At one time during its history, this property was an old cobblers shop; making and repairing horse saddles, with the living accommodation above, so previous owners officially named it "The Saddlers". It makes for a most comfortable, deceptively roomy holiday home that currently has the capacity to accommodate up to 10 people in the 5 bedrooms. However, you won't find any fold-out sofa beds in this property, so the only reason for falling asleep in the lounge will be from watching the sunset late into the summer night!
A single storey, flat roofed extension accommodates the present lounge, kitchen and a ground floor bedroom with a king size bed. This extension makes the most of the excellent location and outlook and means that the principal living areas are bright and sunny (weather permitting).
The house is fully double glazed, with electric storage heating, supplemented by electric panel heaters.
No smoking is permitted in the house, so please go outside on the patio if you wish to smoke. Please dispose of cigarette ash and ends thoughtfully. Do not throw cigarette ends in the sea as birds and fish may mistake them for food.
Car parking is available on the street outside the house.
Entering from shore street through black wooden storm doors and a new double glazed glass panelled door, there is a stairway to the upper floor and under stair cupboard. The hallway twists around the ground floor rooms leading to the first double bedroom and a family bathroom.
The lounge is the next room and features full height window patio doors. It has 2 large sofas and a 42' Samsung flat screen hd tv. Free-sat HD televison is provided along with wifi internet access. There's also an Xbox 360 with kinnect sensor, wii + controller. The lounge also features hdmi connectors and led colour changing strip lights. The wall panels and coffee table have been tastefully chosen to make the lounge as light sensitive as possible.
The kitchen/dining room provides everything you would need if you were living here, and if other chairs are brought in from the patio and bedrooms, the dining table can seat 8 for dinner. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of modern units and includes a dishwasher, fridge freezer, free-standing cooker, microwave, george forman grill and Krups coffee maker.
The utility porch with an 8 kg washing machine and separate vented tumble dryer; leads out to the loch side patio via a new double glazed door.
The patio is the width of the house and can be both an intimate area for a couple or provide the best and most exclusive party area for the whole household. Whatever the weather, the views over the inland loch are sure to always feature in the memories of your time here.
There is a second double bedroom leading off from the hall and next to the kitchen, with a large window providing its own private outlook and view over the loch. This ground floor master bedroom has a double metal framed slat bed and a new (2013) mattress. There's also a fitted wardrobe, 5 drawer chest of drawers, swivel chair and an antique writing desk.
Following around the hallway around, there's a delightful interior in the central hallway, which includes shabby chic style circa 1950’s furniture: a shoe seat, white wooden chest with cushion top and display cabinet. A shoe storage / coat hanging space is opposite.
The next room is the ground floor shower room. There is a new mira electric shower unit and the cubicle measures 110cm x 75cm, so it's large enough for the biggest of people.
Finally on the ground floor, the third bedroom, (bottom right looking from the outside), is a spacious twin with two single beds, so is ideal for two children.
